Gordon Brown strikes up a double act with French president Sarkozy

Gordon Brown will this week meet Nicholas Sarkozy to discuss the ongoing economic downturn and ways in which the worldwide economy can be stimulated. The two leaders have become fairly close over the last few months and struck up something of a double act which has surprised many people. The French president seems very much in awe of Gordon Brown's economic prowess and his innovative ways to combat the pressure on the UK economy.

Historically the French and German leaders have formed something of a bond against the UK but since Sarkozy was voted in as the French president there has been a shift in the French allegiance towards that of the UK. This offers the UK a very powerful ally in the European Parliament to assist Gordon Brown in fighting to reduce the impact of creeping EU control on all EU members.

This comes at a time when the Irish population will again be invited to vote on the EU treaty which was rejected just last year to the dismay of many EU leaders. There are concerns that this will be something of a whitewash as those in control of the European Union do not seem prepared to take a "no vote" as the final Irish answer.
