[info]accio_arse08:01 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."



Heh heh.
Look at them all happy and tousled. This is much more fun than it should be.

Edit: pictures untainted
