A puppy for 10 Downing Street [April Fool!]
Amid accusations that it is a cynical ploy to win over the hearts of Middle England, Gordon Brown's family have taken possession of a border collie puppy. Eight-week-old Avril comes from a breeder in Cumbria. "We wondered how the Browns might respond to David and Samantha's news about a new baby - and now we know," said a Tory spokesman. "I've heard of cynical moves to win over voters, but this takes the biscuit."
