This morning sees the start of the G8 Summit, hosted by David Cameron and taking place at a golf resort in Northern Ireland. Chris Brown argues that the government will not get what it desires out of the meetings. Agreements on trade, tax and transparency are unlikely and, though the ongoing Syrian conflict will figure prominently in informal discussions, he believes Obama does not intend to intervene beyond sending small arms shipments to the rebels. On the bright side, the very fact that the meeting could take place in Northern Ireland says something very important and encouraging about the changes that have taken place there.
