What with long jaunts through the sunshine in customised golf carts, Putin making cracks about how much it takes to buy a peerage in Britain and George Bush cussing on mike with a mouth full of bread roll, the freshly concluded G8 summit didn’t so much resemble a meeting of great minds as a whimsical works outing. Which was somewhat unfortunate, given it coincided with the worst violence in the Middle East for years, nuclear brinkmanship in the Far East and escalating conflict in Iraq.
So did the US President and UK Prime Minister belittle themselves and proceedings with endless references to "the trade thingy", somebody being "a honey" and addressing one another with the likes of "Yo Blair"? Judge for yourself: the video’s live on the MSN homepage right now.
