The Plot To Kill Gordon Brown, Aka Gordan Brown

by | 27th, August 2008

FIVE people have been arrested in alleged plot to kill Gordon Brown, or..:

The message, written in English, allegedly included a threat to target “all the political leaders, especially Tony Blair and Gordan (sic) Brown”.

A damning indiuctment of our education system, and a pretty shoddy showing for Gordon Brown, who after an entire year in power is known among alleged extremists as “Gordan”. Are all, alleged, jihadis thick?

Not that the alleged plotters are all that bright:

The arrests, which are part of an ongoing investigation by Lancashire Constabulary and Greater Manchester Counter Terrorism Unit, came several months after a group calling itself Al-Qaeda in Britain posted a statement on a jihadi website calling for Brown’s death. The site also demanded the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq and Afghanistan.

As subtle plots go this is right up there with creating another departure gate at Glasgow Airport. Budding jihadis hellbent on murder may care to use a code next time, perhaps calling Gordon/Gordan Brown “Anthea Turner” or Noel Edmonds” to best avoid detection…

This is shaping up to another thought crime, like this one?
