What is “Progressive Governance”?

The closing press conference offered few clues. All the heads of government were keen to chip in when it came to global warming and the credit crunch – big picture problems about which they can do little. But asked to speak out on China and Tibet, or Zimbabwe, they looked distinctly shifty, and kept their mouths shut. “We didn’t discuss Zimbabwe,” Mbeki said.


Whatever Progressive Governance is, it’s not about freedom and democracy.

UPDATE : A comment by a co-conspirator is worth reproducing. Gordon said at the closing press conference that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) needed complete re-structuring so it could act as an “early warning system”. Eh?
