Brown: Murdoch war allegations 'wholly wrong'.

Responding to allegations that he had 'declared war' on Rupert Murdoch, Gordon Brown released the following statement:

"Mr Rupert Murdoch has today made a serious allegation that in a telephone call when 'The Sun' declared for the Conservative Party, I told him I had declared war on his company.


"He is wholly wrong.


"As the Leveson Inquiry heard 'The Sun' declared for the Conservatives on the 30th of September, 2009. I did not phone Mr Murdoch or meet him, or write to him about his decision.

"The only phone call I had with Mr Murdoch in the last year of my time in office was a phone call specifically about Afghanistan and his newspaper's coverage of the war. This was in the second week of November after his newspaper, The Sun, printed a story in the second week of November about the death of a soldier and his mother's complaints.


"I hope Mr Murdoch will have the good grace to correct his account."
