Inside No 10 this morning

Gordon Brown in the eye of the storm - Telegraph
"It's terrible," admits a minister close to Brown. "None of it is Gordon's fault, but life's not fair. Gordon is stoical: he's got his head down."

But others suggest that the Prime Minister is rather less than stoical. There are concerns about his temperament, with stories circulating in the Commons tea-room of his rages against the so-called "garden-room girls", the secretaries at Number 10. "There is talk of tempers, that he even threw a mobile phone," says one MP, who is not tied to the Brownite or Blairite camps.

"The most dangerous thing for Gordon is pity," says a former minister. "People are starting to pity him, and pity is much more worrying than fear or loathing."

Comments

Personally, while pity for Gordon Brown is tempting, I'm going to stick with loathing, if it's all the same to you.
