Brown Misquoted

Gordon Brown is facing another controversy today after allegedly referring to a member of the Rochdale public as a "bigoted woman".

"Did you see the size of her shoes, they were enormous, she was at least a size nine, possibly a nine and a half," explained the visually impaired PM.

"I simply stated that she was a big footed woman," he went on.

"I was halfway through a packet of Toffo's at the time, so it's entirely possible that you may have misheard me, but that's definitely what I said. You have my word on that, and you can put my word in the bank," he finished.

"That big they were mate, bloody enormous things, like that Yeti thing you lot have over there she was, what do you call it?"
