"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

G8 Summit Breakthrough

There was a spontaneous round of self-congratulatory back-slapping last night as leaders of the G8 unanimously agreed that the next Summit will be held in Spring 2010.


Last night Gordon Brown revealed that he will set out within the next few days specific recommendations for the global agreement, which could be reached in 2010.

In between mouthfuls of amuse-gueules the leaders also mentioned something about Britain & America cutting their nuclear capability 'pour encourager les autres' who apparently aren't rogue states or axes of evil after all, merely misunderstood.

  1. I see Obama organised it so he could ensure Jimmy Snot was close to hand?

  2. I suppose we got used to Blair always being centre-stage, OR. Not all of them like Gordon - what a surprise.
