London, Apr 17(ANI): British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has said that he plans to do “charity and voluntary work” after his stay at 10 Downing Street.There had previously been speculation that Brown might aim for a major job at the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund, but he said that they were not currently part of his main plans.

“I’m more interested in doing charity or voluntary work, you know, if I move on that’s the sort of thing I’ll be doing,” The Telegraph quoted Brown, as saying.

When asked if he would serve a full five-year term or stand down earlier, as Lord Mandelson had recently suggested, Brown said: “I think you will see another five years of Peter Mandelson, definitely. But you will see another five years of me. You can be sure I’m standing for the term.”

“Be under no illusion, I believe there is an important job still to do. I’m not thinking of what books I will write or thinking about what festivals I will attend,” he added. The Prime Minister further insisted that the Thursday night debate has “energised” the election, and continued his debate strategy of displaying a positive attitude towards opposition leaders.

“People got a chance to see Nick Clegg for the first time and that’s good,” Brown said. (ANI)
