Levy guns for Brown

Reading the extracts from Lord Levy’s book in The Mail on Sunday one is struck by just how determined Levy appears to cause maximum damage to Brown. We’re told that Blair thought that Brown couldn’t beat Cameron, was a liar and was responsible for stoking up the cash for honours affair. On top of this, Levy stresses just how much Brown knew about Labour’s fundraising arrangements. There is also a bizarre, rather below the belt anecdote about a lunch Levy had with Brown which seems purely designed to embarrass the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister's staff must be dusting off, the 'we don't do book reviews' line.
