Prime Minister

Asked when the Prime Minister was intending to step down, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that he had nothing further to add to what had already been said about this matter. The Prime Minister himself had dealt with the issue in his recent News of the World interview and in his Frost interview last September. Asked if the PMOS was still ‘incandescent’, the PMOS said that he wouldn’t have used that word to describe himself last night when journalists had contacted him about this non-story. ‘Sleepy’ was probably more accurate.

  1. Dear Prime Minister,
    For me you have done a great stint. May I suggest that you put your egoist aspirations aside and show your statesmanlike quality by deciding to pass the job on to Gordon. That will clear a lot of annoying rubbish out of the way and let you turn to something useful in the background.
    Best wishes,

  2. Who, exactly, will do Brown’s job then?
