Three dictators

Not a...

Boris Johnson amusingly likened Gordon Brown to Gaddafi, to wit:

...good advert...

“I hope I will be forgiven if I indulge in a few tasteless comparisons between the crazed and increasingly blood-soaked tyrant Muammar al-Gaddafi and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. After all, the two men look vaguely similar; they both appear to believe in the efficacy of Grecian 2000; they both favour long and rambling speeches on socialist economic and political theory, with Col Gaddafi’s efforts perhaps having a slight edge in logic and coherence…”

All very true, but The Knife feels that Gordon’s behaviour more closely resembles that of the deluded, election-result-defying Laurent Gbagbo of the Ivory Coast. In fact I believe that the correct spelling may be Gordon Gbrown.

Consider the facts:

Gordon has a PhD in history

Gbagbo has a PhD in history

Gordon was the only candidate for his party’s leadership

Gbagbo was the only candidate for his party’s leadership

Gordon wrecked his country’s economy

Gbagbo wrecked his country’s economy

Gordon lost an election in 2010 and refused to leave office

Gbagbo lost an election in 2010 and refused to leave office

And here’s the quote from Gbagbo’s spokesman:

For the regime, the challenge is “to feed the system with liquidity” while there is “less and less money to run the economy,”

Spooky!

...for the United Nations
