Who are you call­ing strong?

The Observer - - Comment & Analysis -

At least Si­mon Tis­dall put the word strong­man in quotes (“Is the tide at last on the turn for the world’s ‘strong­man’ lead­ers?” Anal­y­sis, last week). But why use it at all? Peo­ple such as Or­bán, Bol­sonaro and Trump are not strong men, but bul­lies and buf­foons. Dan­ger­ous and hubris­tic, but not strong. Let’s not play to their van­ity – call them what they are.
