What is the Foreign Office for? For over a century it has continually backed the wrong horses overseas - Egypt, Israel, Saudi, India et al. Its senior diplomats live in some kind of 1960s bubble working on this word or this nuance of a sentence for a communique, oblivious of the wider world
None of the WW2 institutions are fit for purpose - UNO, World Bank, WTO and IMF - yet we cling to them as they sink rather than suggesting a complete and thorough reform.
On Afghanistan and Iraq we have to wait for what America says before we dare offer a comment or worse we now hide behind the EU's mutterings.
Come on Mr Hague don't be vague; tell us what your Foreign Policy is and whilst working that out please radically restructure the wretched FCO.
