Anyone any thoughts on it?

Couple of things I have spotted. Biden seems to be flexing his muscles a bit. Understandable as it is the first time has has been in such a position. Good luck to him as long as he does not overdo it!

If anything to fix global companies taxation comes out of it it will be good. Even better if they get an agreement on controling climate change.

I know it is in the UK but mods please note - This is not UK politics! Well, unless Steve Shaw gets stuck in all the road blocks :-D

Fortunately for me and my logistical requirements, the action is at the other end of the county. Cornwall is long, thin at one end and thick at the other, and the G7 gang are meeting at the thin end, whereas Bude is at the thick end. There are thousands of cops in St Ives/Carbis Bay, in an area that doesn't even have its own police station, and Cornish people are not used to road blocks and coppers carrying weapons. I'll be steering clear, though my daughter does live a lot closer to proceedings, in Truro. The weather is damp, murky and muggy today, not Cornwall at its best, so a few of the dignitaries may be somewhat unimpressed. However, a barbecue weekend is forecast. I've laid in a supply of the sensationally good Portuguese red wine from Morrison's, Cidade Branca, currently £6.50, Dave...

What will come out of the meetings is probably less important than the bigwigs actually getting together in person and seeing that other countries are run by similarly vulnerable and imperfect human beings. As Dave says, progress on the climate emergency would be good (I was on the A30 near Launceston this morning and the banners were up on the flyovers). They'll have their own agendas, of course, and, as Maggie Thatcher once famously said, will not be wanting to go naked into the negotiating chamber. Whilst the very last thing I would ever have wanted to see was a tits-out Thatcher, it might actually have been quite a good idea...

Shall we try again? The snotty unnecessary remark (and a couple of responses edited out with a very light hand) and the bad poetry are gone.

I'm listening to news stories about all of the hacking that is coming out of Russia these days (there was a long discussion on Fresh Air today called Inner Workings Of DarkSide Cybergang Reveal It's Run Like Any Other Business. I'd hope that part of that muscle flexing has to do with addressing this kind of crime.

Trump trashed so many international alliances and was so focused on what all of these countries could do for him (host his golf courses and hotels?) that I think everyone still has a bad taste in their mouths. Biden as the clean up crew has to not only do the forward thinking things of a president, but the repairs from the last one.

It's good to hear all the talk from Biden about alliances rather than the nationalistic drivel that came out of the turnip. It's very weird to hear Johnson talk of alliances while most people can still remember his nationalistic drivel about Europe. What are the chances of Putin playing along and dropping his version of nationalism?

I just read an article about Jill Biden participating in some events with Joe (two meetings with the queen and "will Jill be too casual?" questions and a reminder that Michelle Obama put her arm around Liz's shoulders at one point, and got a reciprocal hug around the waist). The nonsense people have to get up to to meet that particular figurehead.

Dr. Biden is also meeting with various groups that support military families, an ongoing interest of hers. She and Prince Harry have been friends for years since she attended the Invictis Games a number of times over the years and they co-sponsored a US/UK walk here; perhaps the two of them are exchanging texts about this trip. :)

To give this a more folkie flavour, I have just read that local shanty group "Bhyer's Boys" will entertain the world leaders with the traditional Cornish sea shanty "Lamora".

It's just a shame that Lamora is neither traditional, Cornish nor a sea shanty :-D It started life as a Music Hall song from Manchester - Pamona.

The Lamorna is a river in Devon, flows into the Bristol Channel, I believe, near Barnstaple. I have a Brook ‘Lamorna’ guitar, built in Devon and named after the river - it’s a beautiful-looking and -sounding instrument.

Lamorna Devon? Not so! Lamorna is a village in West Cornwall (the gorgeous Lamorna Cove is nearby, between Mousehole and Porthcurno). The Albert Square in the song has been claimed for Manchester, but we in Kernow hotly dispute this: there's an Albert Square in the nearby town of St Just-in Penrith. It's all not far from the G7, though I doubt that Joe Biden and Boris Johnson will be doing a turn in the Star Inn in St Just, quite likely the best-known session pub in Cornwall...

”Lamorna Devon? Not so! Lamorna is a village in West Cornwall (the gorgeous Lamorna Cove is nearby, between Mousehole and Porthcurno).”

Well thanks for clarifying that, Steve! My misconception was due to the builders of my guitar telling me that all of their instruments are named after Devon waterways, although where/how I made the Barnstaple connection is a mystery to me - I’m guessing I’d drawn it from a conversation at some time or other.

Whatever, the guitar was built at the Brook Guitars’ workshop at Easterbrook, nr. Hittisleigh, Devon - I know for sure that I’m correct on that because I’ve been there, stayed overnight at the pub in Spreyton, spent the next morning at the workshop while the guys did some work on my guitar. It’s a beautiful instrument.

The U.N. started in 1945, WAV. It has had 75 years to improve and get it right and failed to do so. It is obviously not fit for purpose so other alliances and methods need to be tried. The biggest hindrance to world peace is nationalism such as yours. Open discussion and cooperation like at the G7 conference should pave the way to one world.

It's the quantity. It's the fact that I'm quite sure people see you've posted a link to somewhere, and think, "oh, God, not again", and that you don't really care about the subject, except as an opportunity to lob some spam at Mudcatters.

If he posts the verse instead it is up to the moderator to delete or not, depending on if it actually has something to do with the topic or is a fourth cousin to the subject and he is as usual spamming the thread.

!Yes, WAV, in a perfect world, all would be equal. In a perfect world all nations would sit round a table and talk. In a perfect world there would be peace, plenty for all and you could post your poems wherever you like. But it is not a perfect world. The U.N. have failed. We have left the EU. Democracy is hanging on by a thread even in the most civilised societies. So we have to make the most of what we have got. At least by the most powerful nations on the planet getting together and talking there may just be a glimmer of hope.

Dick, if they cannot keep a cap on COVID at a meeting like this there is no chance of them keeping a cap on it at all. As well as the point I make above I believe they are giving the world the message that things are getting back to normal. Do you think that if this meeting endangered any lives it would go ahead? Boris may be a narcissistic sociopath but he ain't stupid.

For example, a discussion on climate change without a small nation whose land may literally disappear..? They should be on that round table, yes?

Years and years ago, Walkaboutsverse was a problem. He would post the texts of his poems multiple times. I think he sometimes posted the same poem as often as ten times in some cases. So, I allowed him to post his poems once, and only once, in threads that were collections of his verses - and then to link to them where there was a need to refer to a poem. That's always been the deal at Mudcat - you're welcome to post things once, but not multiple times. We've also tried to discourage people from posting messages that were just links without explanation.
This is, after all, a discussion forum and not just a collection of links and copy-paste stuff.

Multiple postings of the same thing are just annoying, and smack of self-promotion instead of actual communication.

Try again re only "The U.N. are a toothless organisation that are subject to the whims of the nations with the power of veto" (Dave).

Don't the other "clubs" (EU, ASEAN, etc.), mentioned above have issues with veto to contend with?

They may well do but we are talking about the G7 conference here where things get done by agreement. It's you that keeps bringing up the U.N. Do you have anything to add about the topic in question or are you just going to continue with your favourite subjects until the thread gets closed?

You are misunderstanding, Dave - if someone proposes an alternative to holding G7s, (in my case, focusing on improving the U.N.) it IS relevant to this thread you have started, and you should not take offence at such debate.

You are pissing in the wind talking about U.N. change. How many times must I repeat that it has been failing for 75 years. Only a fool expects to get different results by doing the same thing over and over again. I am not a fool so I shall not mention it again. How about you trying the same?

I shall risk being shot down for "mentioning it," but I think it's worth pointing out that the US consistently undermines the UN by failing to pay its dues (we're talking many hundreds of millions of dollars) and, of course, by routinely using its veto to prevent any criticism, no matter how well-deserved, of the Israeli regime. The UN is never going to be amazing, but these things don't exactly help, and I think there's something very deliberate about these US actions. Its form apropos of foreign policy over many decades, and its constant undermining of the UN, strongly suggests a desire to be the world's policeman...

pissin in the wind, just pissin in the wind
What a glorious feeling I'm in the loony bin
I'm laughing at clouds so dark above
The sun's in my heart and I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase everyone from the place
Come on with the wind, I've a smile on my chin
I'll walk down the road with a lightened load
And pissin just pissing in the wind
Why am I smilin' and why do I sing.

The G-7 was familiar to anyone who have had too many meetings in that:
"we agreed to have a constructive meeting to agree to have a meeting with ambassadors next time. -just not in Moscow or Washington".

The press conferences however are more revealing than what is said and not said.

There are few countries hitting the target of 2% of GDP to support NATO. The list is Here
UK makes the list, and France get in by the skin of their teeth. No other major EU nation (except Greece, and, marginally, France) makes the grade! (Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland do!)
