British Foreign Policy
"Building a global society means agreeing that the great interests we share in common are more powerful than the issues that sometimes divide us. And critically we must bring to life these shared interests and shared values by practical proposals to create the architecture of a new global society. "
-Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the Lord Mayor's Banquet, November 2007
