BROWN GOES ON TV TO DENY HITTING STAFF
The unprecedented rebuke, delivered by Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O’Donnell, emerged amid explosive disclosures about Mr Brown’s wild and violent outbursts.
The Prime Minister was forced to go on television last night to deny he had physically assaulted his aides as a new book claimed:
Sir Gus ordered an official inquiry into allegations of bullying by Brown.
Paranoid Brown grabbed an aide violently and shouted: ‘They’re out to get me!’
The raging PM thumped the rear of the front seat of his car so hard that it scared the bodyguard sitting in it; while an aide sitting next to Mr Brown thought the PM was going to smash him in the face.
Mr Brown dragged a No10 secretary from her chair and took over at her keyboard.
He manhandled a senior adviser who told him he was late for a meeting with VIPs, yelling: ‘Why do I have to meet these fucking people!’
The bombshell revelations, some of which were reported by The Mail on Sunday three weeks ago, feature in The End Of The Party, a new book by respected political journalist Andrew Rawnsley. The newspaper has also uncovered new evidence of Brown’s extraordinary eruptions, including an incident in which he hurled a tirade of foul-mouthed abuse at Bank of England Governor Mervyn King in a stand-up row. A ranting Brown lashed out at Mr King’s ‘fucking ego’ and accused him of talking ‘fucking bullshit’ in a heated confrontation at an economic summit in America.
