Paul Martin had been nicknamed "Mr. Dithers" by a
prestigious international magazine, which slammed
the prime minister for being indecisive in his first 14
months in office.

The Economist, a British-based magazine read by
hundreds of thousands of influential people, panned
Martin's performance in an article headlined "'Mr.
Dithers' and his Distracting Fiscal Cafeteria."

Paul Martin has showed ' faltering leadership' as prime
minister, The Economist magazine said.  The article
said Martin seems like a faint echo of his former self â
€“ the tough, decisive deficit-cutter who won the respect
of international economic circles.

"Mr. Martin, a successful finance minister for almost a
decade until 2002, cannot quite shake off the
impression that Canada's top job is too big for him," it
said..

"His faltering leadership has earned him the sobriquet
of 'Mr. Dithers."
