Slightly older global leaders
The enduring appeal of talking for talking's sake
Here’s Tony Blair at the Labour Party Conference in Blackpool in 1996, a year before he was elected Prime Minister of Britain:
“Labour will be the party of sound finance and good housekeeping. World interest rates and inflation rates are low; in Britain we will keep them this way. There will be defined targets set and kept to. Losing control of public finance is not radical, it is just reckless, and we will not do it.”
This weekend Blair will be at a conference in Montreal with Justin Trudeau. What ever will they talk about?
