The Financial Times has an interesting piece on a forthcoming oil summit in London to be hosted by Gordon Brown,
Downing Street has issued invitations to two of the world's most odious despots, Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Libya and Venezuela remain among the most repressive regimes in the world, and Brown's invitation demonstrates a callous disregard for human rights and a fundamental lack of foreign policy judgment.
It's important that Conservatives speak out against Brown's foolish decision. For a start, Boris Johnson should issue a statement condemning the move, declaring that London should have no truck with tryants.
