Should Gordon Brown Be Addressing UK Issues Rather Than Meddling Overseas?

The last couple of weeks have seen Gordon Brown venture out of his bunker at Number 10 with many in the UK expecting him to come forward with some radical plans to address problems in the UK. However, they have been disappointed with the Prime Minister choosing to take a more statesmanlike approach and address the issues of the world from Zimbabwe to oil, from wasting food to the environment. Is he correct to maintain a worldwide exposure or should he be back in the UK?

In times of economic turmoil, such as the events we are experiencing now, it is still vital to ensure that the UK is still visible to our international allies and neighbours. True, more time should be spent on UK matters but by being part of the global economy and global political stage it does maintain and increase the image and presence of the UK, and UK business.

In times of trouble it is very easy to sit back and let matters run their course, something which Gordon Brown has been accused of, but he has stood up to be counted on the world stage helping to maintain the reputation of industry and business in the UK, and fighting the corner of the UK economy.
