Former Labour striker Gordon Brown has been left seething after his replacement by arch-rival Nick Clegg in a record transfer deal. Signed last night, the deal will see Nick Clegg replace Gordon Brown in the crucial UK final on May 6th. Brown has been further humiliated by news of his free transfer to the Communist Party of Great Britain.
At £21M, the transfer is a UK record. Labour will doubtless be making the most of this purchase in terms of publicity, hoping to secure strong support from fans for its pivotal May 6th match.
Nick Clegg has a strong following among fans, and it is believed many will transfer loyalties to Labour in time for the new season.
One senior Labour insider said 'quite frankly, Gordon had become a liability. He was a massive drain on the club's resources, the fans found his playing style dull and he scored more own goals last season than he scored for his own team.'
