Gordon Brown is Not a Lucky Politician
To be a successful Prime Minister you have to be lucky. Margaret Thatcher was a lucky politician and so is Tony Blair. Gordon Brown is not. How unlucky was it for him to be in India just as the Big Brother racism row broke? How unlucky is it for him that the inflation rate hits its highest level for ten years and government debt has doubled, just as he's about to take over the top job? Well, that could be said to be his own fault, rather than bad luck, but you get my drift.
