Charm vs. Attack Part II
Earlier this week, I wrote a post comparing the media strategies of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Canadian PM Stephen Harper, arguing that the former had maintained the Labour strategy of charm and engagement, while the latter’s first rule of strategy was to attack.
Lawrence Martin had an interesting piece in Thursday’s Globe and Mail also discussing Harper’s “attack” strategy through the lens of Canadian political culture. It adds a further dimension to my take. Check it out.
