One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

If you’re a foreign leader, don’t have lunch with Gideon Rachman

The FT‘s foreign affairs columnist explains:

Would you have lunch with this guy (right)?

Would you have lunch with this guy (right)?

I interrupt my holiday briefly to note that the last two national leaders that I have interviewed for lunch with the FT – Abhisit Vejjajiva, the prime minister of Thailand and Mikheil Saakashvili, the president of Georgia – are facing similar sorts of problems this weekend: mass demonstrations in Thailand and Georgia, aimed at levering them out of power…

I interviewed Abhisit last January and Saakashvili about a year ago. Could I have inadvertently put a curse on them both?

Rachman helpfully also provides substantive commentary.
