Starting Over

The future role of Britain in our rapidly changing world has been outlined by William Hague in his wide-ranging first speech as Foreign Secretary.

He said that our relationship with the USA should remain strong “but not slavish” and that we needed closer links to the smaller, often overlooked states of the EU.

He stressed the need for fresh ties with the emerging economic giants of India, China and Brazil as well as improved relationships with the Middle East and South America.

During the past 13 years the wider strategic interests of the country were neglected while Labour leaders strutted and postured and indulged in foolish military adventures.

It is good to see a fresh start being made at the re-vamped and strengthened Foreign Office under one of the most formidable political intellects of this generation.
