Gordon’s Natural Authority

Day 2 of the Progressive Governance Conference (Summit), sees a press turnout lower than expected. The four coaches laid on by the FCO to transport eager hacks to listen in on Gordon and chums sit empty in the car park of the Ramada Inn, the press assembly point. The last one arrived at the Grove bearing just two hacks. Officials were overheard optimistically talking up the possibility of a rush ahead of the noon press conference.

The joy of the live feed is that we can see what’s going on in the Progressive Governance summit. So, for instance, as they come back in from their coffee break, Gordon has so far asked his fellow world leaders three times to stop chatting (“Can we please sit down and begin now!”) with all the effectiveness of a trainee teacher at a supply school, and the general delighted mockery of the press tent. The mutated swastika logo is nowhere to be seen now…

Andrew Grice in the Indy this morning tells us why:

There was an embarrassing hiccup before Gordon’s arrival: the logo for today’s summit of world leaders bore an uncanny resemblance to a Nazi swastika. Downing Street removed the logo from its website and ordered the designers to come up with a new one. “It would be totally wrong to read anything sinister into the intentions of the designers,” said a No 10 spokeswoman.

It would, however, be right to laugh at their serial incompetence.
