Brown‘s bloody first day: Soldier from his home town dies in Iraq

Last updated at 18:33pm on 28th June 2007

Gordon Brown’s first full day as Prime Minister has been overshadowed by the deaths of three soldiers killed in Iraq, including one from the new Premier’s own constituency.

In the bloodiest day for British forces in almost three months, three soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb as they patrolled in southern Iraq, including one from Mr Brown’s constituency of Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath.

Meanwhile, UPI writes, on Brown’s predecessor Tony Blair:

The former British prime minister will be joining the foundation board of the Geneva-based World Economic Forum, best known for its annual meeting in Davos which brings together business leaders, academics and policymakers at the Swiss resort town.

Apart from supposedly bringing peace to the Middle East, probably in a similar way as a butcher made president of a veganists’ league will promote veganism, Blair will now join the WEF which attracts so many protests.

With someone like Blair, protests will only get bigger.
