Gordon Brown found himself locked in a tussle of minds today as his adversary went on TV complimenting him on all of the positive action that he is going to take.
However this was not a foreign leader or a master of commerce that is messing with the leader of the UK, but in fact an actress who is famous for having a lovely voice and looking a little like a horse.
On leaving her meeting with the PM, Joanna Lumley congratulated Brown on how much she trusts him and believes that he will "do the right thing" following the productive conversation that they enjoyed.
In fact a Downing Street insider explained that the PM actually spent the entire meeting listening to his iPod, ignoring Lumley as he enjoyed the greatest hits of the Whitesnake, humming.
