How the United Kingdom is governed, part 46

Want to influence the government's foreign policy? Easy - be a film star, or find someone who is a film star to front your campaign:

"Gordon Brown has called for swifter progress on Darfur following a meeting with actor and activist George Clooney in Downing Street".

I happen to agree with George on this one, but would the actor pay any attention to the Dour One's interpretation of Stanislavsky(1) technique?


(1) I started reading 'An Actor Prepares' a while back and it is unintentionally hilarious. Significant Other, who has crept the boards, agrees.

It's all well and good for the PM to be photographed with a celebrity who cares, but I'd much prefer it if the PM actually tried to help Sudan instead of grabbing a quick photo-op.

If I was a cynic I might wonder why he only ever meets good-looking worthies like Clooney and Beckham. I bet he wouldn't ask Stephen Hawking for foreign policy advice.

LFT - Yup, no disagreement there.

BE - I *am* a cynic.

Letters from a Tory - I would prefer that he help the people in Britain get out of the economic mess to which he has made such a noteworthy contribution.
