Was I alone in thinking that Gordon Brown implied at yesterday's PMQs that when speaking to the Chinese Premier he had told him he would be meeting the Dalai Lama when he comes to London? Later in the day, the Standard downplayed the meeting and said it would not be held in government property, and also that the Chinese were enraged.
Brown's response to Cameron's question appeared to wrongfoot the Tory leader, who had probably planned to press the PM to meet the Dalai Lama. Instead he congratulated the PM for "doing the right thing". Instead of being gracious, Brown retorted: "We always do the right thing". Sadly time does not permit me to list the hundreds of occasions when he has done the wrong thing.
