London, Dec. 2 (ANI): British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is likely be known by a caricature of him as "a paranoid, bellowing, and incompetent leader", a US magazine has said, predicting that he will face an "ignominious defeat" at the next election.

While Foreign Policy, a US journal, named Brown as the 74th most influential thinker in the world, it added that he will soon be removed from office by British voters.

Brown will likely be known by a caricature of him as 'a paranoid, bellowing, and incompetent leader', the journal said.

"Brown will very likely not be prime minister of Britain for much longer. The Labour Party will almost certainly suffer ignominious defeat in a national election sometime by mid-2010," The Telegraph quoted Foreign Policy, as saying.

Foreign Policy also praised the Prime Minister's leadership during the recent financial crisis.

As chancellor, under Tony Blair, Brown oversaw the inflation of "massive housing and financial bubbles" that contributed to the recent crisis.

"Even if Brown did not do enough to stop the bubbles from developing, he proved one of the world's most courageous leaders after they had burst," the journal said.

"In acting immediately and forcefully to prevent disaster by nationalising failing banks, pushing through massive stimulus measures, and urging his counterparts to do the same, he just may have saved his reputation," it added. (ANI)
