Martin Popplewell, quizzing Gordon Brown for GT magazine, put it to the Prime Minister that, if he had to have a homosexual relationship, would it be with Will Young, Brad Pitt or Lord Mandelson?
“Oh, come on,” Brown told the journalist, laughing. “You’re not going to expect me to answer the question, given what Peter would say, whatever I said.”
“Don’t tell Peter,” Popplewell responded.
“Well, he’ll know,” Brown replied, plaintively. “You know what Peter’s like.”
