Brown abandons No.10!

But sadly only to go to No.12!
Prime Minister Gordon Brown is to break with more than 275 years of tradition and move out of 10 Downing Street to take up residence next door at No 12.

The move is a direct result of the ongoing financial crisis which has pushed Brown to look for bigger premises to accommodate him and his key advisers involved in tacking the global crisis.

No 10 has been the seat of government since 1735, but it is a listed building which cannot be structurally altered due to planning permission restrictions. But now, Brown will direct operations from an open plan 'war room' at No 12, which is currently occupied by the Downing Street press office and strategic communications unit.

Is he making room for Mandy again? Perhaps he could move in for a while on a peppercorn rent.

Didn't Tony Blair move next door (no 11, not 12) because it's got more bedrooms?
