The G20

Is there anything much to say? Brown got some of what he wanted, but not everything. No-one really knows whether what has been announced will 'work' or not. There were the usual demonstrations, some of which ended up in the pointless breaking of windows - and haven't the RBS heard of shutters?

Is it just me or are there others who find the whole thing unremarkable? We have a cyclical downturn which in a globalised world will inevitably affect every country. Continue to see free trade and globalisation as the answer and expect the same at some time in the future.
