William Hague and Diplomacy
I vividly recall visiting the FCO under the previous government and being told by the then Permanent Secretary that they were very pleased to have been given 7 objectives which he proceeded to read out. Firstly 7 is too many, but secondly although these objectives were worthy.none even mentioned the UK National Interest.
Great also to see Sebastian Wood the excellent Ambassador to China.
It would be very depressing if we had an avowed atheist as PM - fortunately this risk appears to be receding as the polls move. the average of the last 5 polls shows a dead heat whereas one month ago they had a Labour Lead of 5%.
