Bush 'more of a threat than Kim Jong-Il'

US President George W. Bush is more of a threat to world peace than the leaders of North Korea and Iran, a poll of British voters has found.

A majority of voters in Britain, Canada and Mexico, all key American allies, also thought US foreign policy had made the world less safe since 2001, the survey published in The Guardian showed.

Three-quarters of Britons said Mr Bush presented a great or moderate threat to peace in the world, bested only by Osama bin Laden at 87 per cent.

By contrast, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il was considered a threat to peace by 69 per cent of voters.

As well, 69 per cent of British voters along with 62 per cent of Canadians and 52 per cent of Mexicans, said US policy had made the world less safe.
