What Did Gordon Learn from Gandhi? mdi-fullscreen
Didn’t Gandhi lead the Salt Satyagraha, a massive act of civil disobedience? The taxpayers strike in which Indians refused to pay oppressive taxes?

If Gandhi was alive he would also advise Gordon against his disastrous gold sales. Gordon sold a chunk of Britain’s gold reserves at rock bottom prices.

As Benedict Brogan points out, Gandhi warned “If the outflow of gold continues, India will be a heavy loser. It will be a national disaster.”

The Guardian’s “Gandhi taught me to be a leader” front-page is over-the-top. Well, maybe not as OTT as Theo Spark’s take above…
