London, Jan 19 (ANI): British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has been likened to the disgraced former US President Richard Nixon by screenwriter Peter Morgan.

Morgan, who had written the film Frost/Nixon and also Brown's character in 'The Deal', noticed that the two men shared personality traits that were totally alike.

"They are people who are hard to like, people who have complicated emotional inner landscapes, and somehow have had trouble accessing them," the Sun quoted him as saying.

"People will hate me for saying this, but there are emotional similarities between Gordon Brown and Richard Nixon.

"Gordon Brown finds it hard to be liked and yet he's a brilliant man. But people don't warm to him, they don't like him. Tony Blair is liked, and David Frost is liked, because they have a charm - an ease," he added. (ANI)
