Gordon Brown

In this image from BBC, former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown speaks during an interview. Brown accused Rupert Murdoch's newspapers of employing criminals to obtain confidential information about his family, his private financial affairs and the lives of ordinary people who were at "rock bottom". Brown's furious denunciation of the politically powerful News International papers came a day after questions were raised about how The Sun newspaper obtained confidential information in 2006 that Brown's infant son Fraser had cystic fibrosis.

Remembering Ambika
British PM Gordon Brown was among some 1,200 guests who came together to remember Lord Swraj Paul’s daughter Ambika who passed away 41 years ago. The London zoo was the favourite spot of the four-year-old who was undergoing treatment for leukaemia. A memorial was built in the premises and Paul is known to have donated a million pounds to save the zoo from closure. This year again he contributed an undisclosed sum for the cause.

Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown attends a meeting in Stratford, east London where he spoke with local Labour Party activists. A top deputy to Britain's troubled PM Brown warned lawmakers seeking his ouster to end their rebellion or risk making the situation of the governing Labour Party more tenuous. Business Secretary Peter Mandelson, appearing on the BBC's Andrew Marr talk show, urged party dissidents to think about the consequences of an ugly leadership battle. The tussle comes as voters are punishing Labour lawmakers for abusing their expense claims in a scandal that has shaken the government.

Britain's newly-appointed Prime Minister Gordon Brown, right, and his wife Sarah wave as they pose outside 10, Downing Street in London. Brown, a self-proclaimed admirer of India, today took over as Prime Minister amid expectations that relations between New Delhi and London would develop further. The 56-year-old Labour party leader was sworn in by Queen Elizabeth at the Buckingham Palace shortly after Tony Blair stepped down after holding the top post for 10 years. Brown, Chancellor of Exchequer, took over as leader of the Labour party on Sunday from Blair who stepped down in the backdrop of decline in his popularity for joining the US-led campaign in Iraq. This is the first time that a changeover has occurred without a general election.
