Ten golden rules for the new world leaders


  1. Be an opportunist, think not of your country but what you can do for yourself.
  2. Be outrageous and say things you know are not true. The more unbelievable the better.
  3. Don’t have a long-term strategy. If you really must, don’t tell anyone about it. Someone might accuse you of changing your mind.
  4. Run a negative campaign. Badmouth your enemies because the more you call them names the more the names will stick.
  5. Don’t listen to anyone, especially experts. Reject advice from people who might actually have something useful to say or who may have your interests at heart.
  6. Take huge risks and gamble with other people’s futures. Cheer up! It may never happen.
  7. Don’t even think about plan B or C or D…nobody else does.
  8. Have no regard for history. What could you possibly learn from history?
  9. Blame your failures on other people.
  10. Get a terrible haircut. It stops people noticing you have more than one face.
