Gordon’s passage to India

Text settings

A well-connected CoffeeHouse reader kindly informs me that Brown is due in China next week, goes to India for two days and  back in time for PMQs on the Wed. But here's my favourite bit: the talks in India are not scheduled to include protests about plans to demand a cash bond for visitors as New Delhi regards this as harmless sabre-rattling not worthy of discussion. Those in India who have spoken to the UK High Commission are left with the impression this won't get past the consultation phase.
