I cut this from another blog earlier but can’t remember whose blog it was now. Still it seems to be going viral so no harm done
Gordon Brown goes on a state visit to Israel . While he is on a tour of Jerusalem he suffers a heart attack and passes away. The undertaker tells the British Diplomats accompanying him, You can have him shipped home for £5,000,000, or you can bury him here, in the Holy Land , for just £100.
The British Diplomats go into a corner and discuss for a minute. They come back to the undertaker and tell him they want Gordon shipped home.
The undertaker is puzzled and asks, Why would you spend £5,000,000 to ship him home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you would spend only £100? With the money you save you could help pay back some of the deficit, help pay for the Olympic Games or help the elderly.
The British Diplomats replied, Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. We just cant take the risk.
