Gordon Brown - more widely loathed than Mahmoud Ahmadeinejad

I am indebted to the Herald Tribune for polling the population of sundry nations on their opinions of sundry political and religious figures, and I have charted what my fellow Britons think:
As ever, click for legibility. Brown is second only to the outgoing President for prompting an unfavourable opinion - 55% to Bush's 71%. Lower percentages express an unfavourable opinion of Castro (47%), Ahmadinejad (40%), Hu Jintao (29%), Bashir Assad (23%) and Hugo Chavez (22%). And what will really sting, Mr Tony is more popular (37% to 33%) and less unpopular (51% to 55%)

I will admit to being a tad dishonest here, as a majority feel unable to express an opinion on four of the five Asian and American rogues.

Elsewhere, only the Dalai Lama sees a majority thinking well of him - 61% - followed by the Pope - 41% - and the original 'pretty straight kinda guy' - 37%.

Brown is more popular in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the US of A than he is here and the 49% of Italians who think well of him are welcome to him. Mind you, they all prefer Mr Tony, apart from the Spanish.

Brown's a fascist - a former socialist, consistently authoritarian; just like Mussolini, only ugly. Of course there are lots of Italians who approve. They haven't gone away you know (to coin a phrase).
