Well done for spotting the cultural reference. If the Mahdists had won easily, my headline might have had to be "Gordon is a moron" instead.

Ha, funny. My boss at my old job was named Gordon. My job had a lot of traveling with a company car, so he would have to call me when he needed something. I had Brian Blessed saying "Gordons Alive" as his ring tone on my phone.
