Brown red in face after blusher found in cab

PM's slap instructions leak to public prints

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Prime Minister Gordon Brown acquired another light dusting of woe when his make-up bag was left in the back of a taxi last week.

Rather more seriously the bag, left by a junior aide, also contained information on how he and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith would be getting to Yorkshire for an official visit.

Less dangerously, but more amusingly, the bag also contained detailed instructions on the PM's beauty regime. But let's face it - this government has lost an awful lot of much more sensitive documents and CDs in the past.

The four stage process is a bit more elaborate than the quick bit of powder usually required for telly appearances.

Brown starts with an illuminating foam then a touch of concealer for under his eyes. Stage three is Clinique super-balanced make-up which goes all over his face and eyes, followed by a touch of terracotta Guerlain powder for that bronzed look, the Sun reports.

The A4 paper included idiot-proof instructions for applying the slap. The bag was handed into the Currant Bun by the cabbie.

Mr Brown might be glad of the distraction - it's got to be better than more revelations about MPs' expenses. It might even cleanse us of the memory of his YouTube appearance which was meant to end the scandal. ®
