The curious case of Europe's two Gordon B.'s PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 09 April 2009
If all goes according to the plans of Hungary's ruling Socialists and Gordon Bajnai is installed as Hungary's new prime minister, Bajnai will have the odd distinction of being only of two heads of government in the European Union with the given name "Gordon" and a family name beginning with the letter "B". Interestingly, the lesser-known "Gordon B." who will be walking down red carpets around Europe has more than a handle in common with his more famous namesake, UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Just consider:
  • Both rose to prominence in their youth.
  • Both were for years big beneficiaries of their respective countries' reckless economic management.
  • Both pretend to be cool technocrats but are actually consumed by politics.
  • Both took over from political partners who were once very popular but had become objects of scorn and ridicule by the time they stepped aside.
  • Both lead governments which will face re-election by mid-2010.
  • Both will lose.
