A war of words easily won

No prizes for who is telling the truth here.

Boris Johnson's claim that Gordon Brown refused to sit alongside him at an official function has been dismissed as "categorically untrue" by Downing Street.

The London Mayor told a Commons committee that, at the Damilola Taylor memorial: "Gordon Brown decided it would be quite wrong for me to be sitting next to him, so I was moved somewhere else.”

He added it was his understanding the Prime Minister was: "appalled at the idea I might be sitting next to him".
But the Prime Minister's spokesman dismissed the claim, insisting "It's categorically untrue".

"There was never any suggestion that he would, or would not" be sitting alongside Mr Johnson

It is very unusual to spill these sort of tattle in public.  Policy criticism of Brown is one thing, but personal comments are quite another.

Why the No 10 denial?  Because the story is true.   Just another example of a man that is not fit to be being Prime Minster.
