08:01 pm - More Brown/Mandelson
This is all the fault of [info]the_obscure and this post about the joy of Peter Mandelson/Gordon Brown which started it.

The Mail: Gordon Brown threw a tantrum during a TV interview - and had to be soothed by Lord Mandelson...



The Prime Minister had to be calmed down by Business Secretary Peter Mandelson after erupting in a series of off-camera clashes with broadcast journalists. Lord Mandelson soothed a raging Mr Brown and reassured him: 'Gordon, calm down, calm down.'

The extraordinary scene unfolded after Mr Brown's frustration boiled over in five tense interviews on Thursday. Viewers could clearly see the signs of strain...

According to one source, Lord Mandelson - who has been drafted in to No10 to help the Prime Minister's desperate fight for survival - 'put a proverbial arm round Mr Brown's shoulder'... Lord Mandelson's political and personal relationship with Mr Brown has been the subject of much speculation.

Ah, The Mail. You bring the overwritten political prose with a hint'o'slash


Also, from The Independent:

Even at its most gruesomely dysfunctional, the 20-year-plus connection between them has always been more complex... Mandelson had looked up to Brown as the dominant figure.

Some 'looking up to' going on here, I think.

Still the best quote (from from The Guardian):

Mandelson "frequently screamed" down his mobile to Brown: "I love you, but I can destroy you."

A.
SO NOT ME. In fact, I totally blame you. My post was "how interesting politics seems to be". Your reply was "angrysex ftw". So there.

Not complaining. Just assigning blame properly.

B.
Your Mail link is fucked, brings back to me. A bit insulting in a way. Anyway, the last line says "officially he wasn't even there". Not that I'm against the narrative of "pet, pet, Gordon, all gonna be okay, let me kiss it better", but probably never happened...

C.
Dominant figure? Are you kidding me? Did I mention handcuffs yet?

D.
"I love you, but I can destroy you" is the Best Line Evah. Should be iconed.

Letter after D.
I want the originals for the ones painted on please. I appreciate your art, self and partner loled, but I want the door one especially.

Some other Letter.
Expect an email.

Hee hee hee.


(I don't have any leather/chains/handcuffs icons? WTF? I'm telling you, life is upside down)

Disclaimer: I do not now, nor have I ever, suggest that any politician is doing anything with any other politician which involves or should involve handcuffs. Kthxbye.

You win indeed. We loled hard. Your icon is perfect, too.

He's a joyful fellow, isn't he? Excited. Mandelson I mean, though the grin on Brown's face is really, uh... fitting, here.
