Well weren’t we lucky? Just 48 hours before David Miliband’s controversial piece came¬† out in The Guardian, which was seen as a thinly veiled attack on Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s leadership, the British Foreign Secretary was dining with us!

Though the lunch was off the record (so sadly can’t share snippets about where he is going on vacation nor the hotspots he’ll be watching over the summer break), he did give intriguing insights into where the Foreign Office is heading, his impressions of how things are going in places like the Balkans and Afghanistan and even some thoughts about the US presidential election campaign.

And of course, he did dish a bit about Labour party politics — what foreshadowing!
