Gordon Brown is a former British prime minister and leader of the British Labour Party from 2007 until 2010. Brown previously served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Labour government from 1997 to 2007 and has been a member of parliament since 1983.

  • Almost half of those surveyed think the prime minister did a poor job in Downing Street, putting him below predecessors Theresa May and David Cameron

The sister-in-law of former British prime minister Gordon Brown has said she was deported from a Malaysian state whose powerful leader is widely accused of massive corruption. Clare Rewcastle Brown, an activist journalist who runs a website and radio station fiercely critical of Sarawak's chief minister, Abdul Taib Mahmud, said she was turned away at an airport in the state on Wednesday.
