Britain’s Alastair Darling to expose ‘volcanic’ Gordon Brown in memoir
Former Chancellor Alistair Darling will lift the lid on Gordon Brown's increasingly "brutal and volcanic" demeanour when his memoirs are published next week, according to a Labour-supporting blog.
Back from the Brink: 1,000 days at No 11 is said to reveal the true scale of behind the scenes feuding that dominated the Government during the financial crash.
Labour Uncut claims to have seen extracts of the book, due out next Wednesday, detailing a total breakdown in trust between the Prime Minister and Chancellor.
Mr Darling is reported to single out shadow chancellor Ed Balls and former business minister Shriti Vadera who, as key allies of the former Prime Minister, were running what amounted to a parallel Treasury operation within Government.
