On 27th June 2007, Gordon Brown finally succeeded Tony Blair as Prime Minister for Great Britain, having waited in the wings for over ten years. Formerly the longest serving and most successful Chancellor in over 100 years, he was instrumental in establishing the New Labour ideology that brought Tony Blair to power. However, surprisingly for a man with such political experience, he is seen by many as an enigma, and commentators the world over have been uncertain where he stands on key issues. Does his premiership signal a lurch to the left in British Politics? Will he stand together with the next US President, or will the "special relationship" become decidedly less friendly? In this new biography, Simon Lee systematically examines Brown's politics over the last ten years of Labour power, and assesses his likely impact as Prime Minister. From Iraq to climate change, fiscal policy to the NHS, this is a searching examination of the most important political figure in Britain today.
