Gordon Brown
« on: March 23, 2009, 04:56:08 PM »
As most of the people on here are American, I was wondering what your views on Gordon Brown were, in comparison to say Tony Blair. I always thought Americans had a soft spot for Blair, but I am not sure about Brown...

Americans had a soft spot for Blair because he was so pro-American. Brown has been attempting to move away from the mesh Blair created with the States, and so I wouldn't be too surprised if some of the Americans here are a little less than enthusiastic about Brown.

That being said, I'm Canadian, so this is a 'foreign' (if you can even call it foreign) point of view...

For Canada he hasn't been much different than Blair. However, many Canadians are getting awful tired of being in Afghanistan (I being one of those Canadians), so Brown, not being nearly as pro-Afghanistan as Blair and wanting out as well, is good in my books.

I'm English. I prefer Blair to Brown, because Blair is the man who was elected in the first place. Brown would not be able to get the votes in an election, which is why he's backed out of holding the one he promised last year. Blair made decisions - some good, some bad, but he did his best to follow them through. Brown couldn't carry through anything even as a MP. Brown is a coward and an unreliable and therefore dangerous leader.
