Gordon Brown delivered a speech with passion, vision, and clarity this morning at the UN. With all of the weight of national politics and a reeling economy on his shoulders, the prime minister powerfully and forcefully raised the sights of the world to fulfill the hopes raised by the Millennium Development Goals. And he got specific: decisive malaria control, massive deployment of community health workers, 24m more children in school by 2010, and seed and fertiliser for millions of hungry subsistence farm families in 30 poor countries. Great speech, vision, and global leadership.
