Elton Wants Gordon Brown for EJAF

FORMER PM Gordon Brown is being wooed by Sir Elton John - to work with him to fight Aids.

Mr Brown, 59, has been in talks over taking a post with the singer's charity.
And Sir Elton wants the ex-Labour leader and wife Sarah, 46, to become patrons of the Elton John Aids Foundation.

Sir Elton's husband David Furnish revealed: "Gordon's a friend and we've spoken to him and Sarah about how they could help.

"We talked about Gordon taking up a more active role within the charity. Gordon is very knowledgeable about the subject and we are very excited about him joining our team on a more permanent basis."

Days before resigning as PM in May, Mr Brown spoke of his desire "to do something that helps other people".

He added: "Sarah and I might do charity and voluntary work."
