Mr Brown admitted that he and Mr Blair had fights during Labour’s first 10 years in office and that their relationship was “incredibly difficult”. His remarks confirm the simmering feud that characterised much of the time the pair spent at the top of government.
Mr Brown also admitted that they did concoct a deal, once Mr Blair became Labour leader, for Mr Brown to succeed him as prime minister.
The disclosures come in a very personal interview due to be broadcast at the weekend with the former newspaper editor and now television show host Piers Morgan. Mr Brown talks about his student life, alcohol, his wife Sarah and their children. Mr Brown also speaks movingly about the death of his daughter and his son’s illness.
