Everyone’s missing the point about bullying by the Prime Minister. Gordon Brown admits he behaves abominably to try and get his own way. And it did John Prescott no harm amongst his supporters when details of his behaviour were revealed.
There are many examples of effective leaders who have been bullies, but usually as dictators: Saddam Hussein, Joseph Stalin etc.
However in a democratic system you can only get so far by throwing tantrums. Eventually people start working quietly against you. At all levels of politics you need conciliation and geniality to get the most out of the people working along with you.
And that's why Gordon Brown is a failure.
