Blair and Brown patch up differences

Tony Blair and Gordon Brown have pledged at a party rally this week to work 'shoulder to shoulder' during the local election campaign, but as one party activist pointed out, it was a shame Gordon's shoulder was being used to nudge Tony over the edge of the stage.
Mr Brown has denied hating Mr Blair's guts.
"No," he said. "I hate all of him. But it does neither of us any good the party is defeated in the local elections so we have to pretend to get on."
But Mr Blair put a different spin on the situation.
"Gordon is completely wrong on this," he said. "We really do get along like a house on fire. We're great buddies. Gordon is simply going to have to accept that."
