London, February 23 (ANI): British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has refused to launch an inquiry after senior staff was reportedly disciplined for bullying and harassing colleagues.
Up to four employees, who either worked in Downing Street or the adjoining Cabinet Office, were said to have faced disciplinary action.
The Prime Minster was criticised for giving a thumbs down to a full probe into the aggression claims.
"We don't see any need to have an inquiry," The Sun quoted his official spokesman as saying.
Political commentator Andrew Rawnsley accused Brown of verbally attacking and manhandling employees in a new book The End Of The Party.
Brown is said to have displayed his alleged "abusive" behaviour and "volcanic temper" on at least three occasions, a claim denied by the No. 10. (ANI)
