Person of the year?

Posted on

The FT has named Donald Trump its person of the year.

It made me wonder who I would name if I had to do so. And I was stumped. I'm good at some sorts of lists, but not 'my favourite things' ones: choosing my Desert Island Discs would be one of my definitions of a nightmare because I just don't think that way.

Others might though. Who deserves to be person of the year? Or is it just an absurd idea to suggest that anyone can aspire to such a thing at the level the FT implies?
