Tony Digs In as Gordon Meets Bill

"This is not a time to walk away but to have the courage to see it through." So said our bealeagured PM in his address to the Australian Parliament. I guess he was talking about Iraq, but I think we can be forgiven for seeing a double meaning in this plea. And while Tony's away, Gordon will play - this time with Bubba Bill Clinton. The fact that Bill Clinton visits Gordon Brown while Tony Blair is away demonstrates perhaps more than anything else how the political sands are shifting and Tony Blair's authority is gradually ebbing away. When George W does the same, we'll really know the game is up for the Dear Leader.
