George Bush and Tony Blair secretly 'plotted' to stop Gordon Brown becoming PM

According to the Telegraph, Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, tried to prolong his time as Prime Minister because there were concerns coming from across the Atlantic that Gordon Brown was very difficult to deal with.

The White House warnings, the Sunday Telegraph published this morning, played a key role in Mr Blair’s attempt to cling on to power until at least 2008, and to groom David Miliband as his successor.

Senior officials within the Bush administration sounded warnings after Brown met with then secretary of state Condoleezza Rice. Brown is said to have 'harangued' her over policy issues such as aid, development and Africa.
