Reports this weekend that Gordon Brown "bullied" members of staff, used violent and offensive language and operated a regime of terror, were strongly denied by No. 10 and Ministers today.
When Reporters put allegations to Mr Brown regarding his displays of anger towards staff, his treating them in an abusive way, his bad temper and bad language and, on at least one occasion, shouting and swearing at a member of staff while shaking her violently, the Prime Minister responded:-
" Did I F**k !!! Did I F**K !! Any F***ing B*****d who F***ing said I F***ing did is a F***ing liar and when I find out who the F***ing C***t who said it is, I am going to F***ing kill the C***t.
"My Father taught me always to be kind, considerate and generous to others, never to use foul language and to moderate my behaviour even under stress. And that's what I F***ing well do. That is the way I have always lead my F***ing life.
"So if you or anyone else wants to suggest otherwise you can F**k right off!! C***ts!"
