When I read this at The Guardian, my jaw dropped… literally.
Roger Cohen, columnist for the New York Times, has praised our embattled Prime Minister Gordon Brown for, in his words, “… that he gave perhaps the best political speech of his life”, referring to his star turn in the United States Congress. With examples, Cohen believes that US President Barack Obama can learn a lot from Brown’s experiences on how to be a leader.
Mr Cohen, what on earth are you going on about? If Obama had followed Brown’s policies, the US would go down the same economic mire that Britain is engaged in right now. It was Brown’s record as Chancellor that put the country in this state. Most people know that when British Prime Ministers get into bother at home, they tend to travel abroad. We are desperate to see the back of him… and the present government.
Obama- and America- doesn’t need to learn from him…. it has to be the other way round.
