London, July 13 (ANI): Several MPs of the Labour Party have claimed that Prime Minister Gordon Brown is as ruthless and intimidating as a mafia boss.
A senior Labour women has even claimed that Brown sends in brutal hitmen to 'bump off' colleagues standing in his way.
"Personally he's very warm, charming and friendly. But when dealing with his politics he engages with a darker side of himself and he believes the end justifies the means," The Sun quoted former Environment Minister Jane Kennedy, as saying.
The former minister also agreed upon claims of Brown's behaviour as a 'mafia boss' and said she hated the manner in which fellow party members are undermined.
"He has, and always has had, a group of people around him engaged in undermining Labour people. We want our politics to be about policy and not personalities, but unfortunately we have it constantly thrust in our face," Kennedy said.
"The way in which people are undermined is usually very personal. It's a very personal attack and it's very distasteful," she added.
Kennedy was among a wave of leading female Labour MPs, who have criticised Brown's male-dominated domain. (ANI)
