What will be Brown’s foreign angle?

Speculation is rife about Gordon Brown's approach to foreign policy if/when he becomes PM

By Martin Bright

The new year begins with a flurry of speculation about the future shape of Gordon’s foreign policy and I am not immune from such futurology. Good to see that the Independent’s estimable Andrew Grice picked up some of the themes of my comment piece in the
Observer at the weekend in his piece in yesterday’s paper

Not a bad piece from some bloke called Kampfner in the The Sunday Telegraph this weekend too!

There seems a determination among those in the Brown camp to apply their brilliant economic brains to everything that moves. I suppose it’s better than the messianic approach favoured by Brown’s predecessor.
