Description

For a decade, Gordon Brown was British Prime Minister Tony Blair's right-hand man - the 'Iron Chancellor' who piloted the British economy through years of growth and prosperity. But behind the scenes, a bitter power struggle between the two men was rocking the foundations of the governing Labour Party. In 2007, Blair resigned, and Brown, at last, had his chance at the top job. In taking over as the Queen's First Minister, however, he had to deal with the mixed legacy left by his former boss, including Blair's controversial support for U.S. President George W. Bush's war in Iraq. ""Gordon Brown"" examines his journey from a remote Scottish parsonage to 10 Downing Street, and looks at the starkly different way Brown approaches politics compared to his more charismatic predecessor.
