Author Information

The man who was Chancellor of Great Britain for ten years but always wanted to be Prime Minister. And he became Prime Minister on 27th June 2007. Yes, pinch yourself hard but you won't wake up - Gordon Brown aka the Clunking Fist, did indeed become Prime Minister of Great Britain. At the time there was much furore about whether the leader of the country should be someone who has not been elected by the people as Prime Minister, but this has actually happened several times in the past. Early on in his premiership he had reasonable popularity and many called for him to call an election there and then, however he did not do so, preferring to let the parliament run its course. When the financial crisis struck it was thought that he would lose his role and there was much talk of plots within the Labour party to depose of him before the election. However none of those came to anything and he led the Labour party into the 2010 election. The result was that Labour eventually lost with a Lib Dem / Tory coalition forming a government. Although being re-elected as the MP for his constituency this meant Gordon Brown resigned as Prime Minister on 11th may 2010.
