Lots in common. They both can legally move the chess peices, and they are both male.

And get bashed up by thugs and cops at demos.

But I should give him some advice from an old pro. When doing an anti-nuclear demo at the SCC RL football final, I wore a crash helmet, and just as well because copped hundreds of full beer cans. But my unprotected mate copped it.

I do wonder about the general wisdom of Kasparov's political ventures. I think that the chance of any successes are small and the chance of something more seriously unkind happening to him are considerable. I wonder if his ego as a chess great has gone to his head and he overestimates his prospects.

But B-Grade actors become President of the United States and thereby prolong their career.

I think Kevin is right. Moreover anyone who wants to get involved in current Russian politics must have an overt death wish.

Look what Pauline Hanson "achieved" and look what a lousey person she was. Relatively speaking, Gaz, could end up king of the world.

When it comes to being a political success, superficial celebrity is often an advantage. Being famous for something involving intellectual skill is generally a disadvantage.

I disagree, Barry Jones was a very respected person, Gough's towering intellectual was looked up to.

Garry is showing enormous courage in confronting the Russian "mafia" and will win respect for doing so. Only he will have to borrow my tried-and-tested crash helmet.

It is the easy path to fall into the black hole of chess and coming and goings of life. must go

I think Gary needs the services of 6'6" karate king Matt Sweeney and a few of his mates.

I can remember the Skull opposing some protest and a guy supposedly from the Russian embassey kicked the Christ out of him. And the Skull, a known bully of Asian women, was too afraid to respond. Then again a big Islander kicked the Christ out of him again at the Domain when he was being racist.

[Just a lillte disclaimer here in case A/C's story gets misinterpreted. I am not "Skull". He is a neo Nazi ratbag character who does the rounds in Sydney :crazy: ]

Would you take him on if you had to?

An odd question - it tends to answer itself. If I had to, then, I would have to. However, since I don't expect that he and I will cross paths in a blind alley during a riot, I guess he will be safe enough. ;)

When he was set upon by the Islander the funny part was afterwards he was real upset with us because we did not rush in and drag the guy off him. He thought we were his mates, not realising that we hated his guts and that he deserved whatever he got.

Entirely appropriate given the thread title and the suggestion of a Presidency battle.

It appears the "civil war" in victorian chess between Wastell and DC over the schools comp might become less civil as DC becomes more bolder...if casualties occur then this war correspondent will try and keep the chess public informed. ;)

It appears Gary's reinforcements have arrived just in time,with some mortar rounds and better communication in the field the "battle" looks like it will be alot more even. Let the shelling begin. ;)

We have gone from a potential "A horse, a horse,a kingdom for my horse" to "It's only a fleshwound". Hopefully the "supply lines" will remain open for a sustained period,and that Gary's troops hold their nerve in the line of fire. ;)

It would appear the opposing "army" has no interest in detente,judging from his scathing comments on this bb. DC doesnt seem to mind burning a few bridges in victoria,he is always looking at new horizons. GW isnt the only fish he would like to fry. ;)

Especially, Kevin, if you happen to be living in the U.S.Any sign of intellectual ability is death to your political aspirations, just look at what happened to Adlai Stevenson. If they can hang the word "liberal" on you,well that's it,you are finished.

DC is probably the least of GW problems at the moment. May be a case of the past catching up to him:)
