Brown speaks

Text settings

This BBC interview with Gordon Brown is essential viewing; it’s the best example yet of ‘new and improved Gordon.’ Also worth a click right now, is Ben Brogan’s blog which is doing yeoman’s work tracking the twists and turns of the EU negotiations. As he points out, “if a deal is agreed later tonight, it will include concessions that will require Britain to give up its veto in about 40 areas, including transport, culture and the terms for entering the euro.”

Over the weekend, Coffee House will have analysis of the agreement, or lack of one, from the Brussels summit and more on the build up to Brown.
