Labour's NEC ordered a barrage of medical tests yesterday to be carried out on Gordon Brown after widespread accusations that he is actually a man. Dr Magnus Spart, Labour's medical spokesperson, said "gender is not as simple as XY chomosomes and genitalia; what sex someone is depends on a whole host of factors, not least what the person believes themselves to be"
Harriet Harman is today reported to be furious that a man might have won Labour's leadership race, and is calling for the result to be annulled if the tests come back positive.
David Miliband, who came sixth, said "She's definitely a man. There's no doubt about it."
