Today we saw the follow up to Scots born Prime Minister Gordon Brown's meeting yesterday, 3/3/2009, with 44th American President Barack Obama, as he addressed both houses of the US Congress.
The speech was due to commence at 16.00 our time, however we read from the BBC, as it happened, of how Mr. Brown took the podium slightly later than anticipated, eleven minutes later to be precise, whilst he finished at 16.44 with the statement:
"Let us restore prosperity and protect this planet and, with faith in the future, let us together build tomorrow today".
thus speaking for 33 minutes.
The main points of the speech are detailed in the above link; including the Knighthood to Senator Ted Kennedy, the "unbreakable bond" between the UK and the US, and the statement "There is no old Europe, there is no new Europe. There is only your friend Europe." . I trust I have made mine.
