Cameron makes a good start on the world economic stage
David Cameron appears to be carrying all before him. He has, in essence, got the G8 and G20 to agree with his agenda for fiscal conservatism. The Europeans like him and apparently respect what he is doing, even after the little row over the European Peoples Party; trivial indeed when set against the big challenges the continent faces now. And he has even managed not – so it appears – to upset Obama in the process.
A good start for his international economic diplomacy then; not yet in the global leadership role Gordon Brown managed to carve out, and moving in a very different direction; but an impressive debut nonetheless.
