Another big Clegg foreign policy speech
With my finger on the pulse of events that, er, happened a week ago, I was very interested to read this speech (http://www.dpm.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/news/deputy-prime-minister-speech-hague) by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, in which he said: "The world, as I see it, is not split along traditional lines: North/South; East/West; Developed/Developing. It is divided into those societies which are open and those which are closed." Worth a read if you are interested in Liberal Democrat foreign policy in terms of the UK's Coalition Government. Oh, and to anyone who might ever suggest that British politicians have a tendency to talk about Israel/Palestine to the exclusion of talking about other important issues, I would point out that the subject is not directly mentioned once in this speech.
