Last summer, a European Summit was held at Hampton Court Palace to discuss core EU political issues.
Hosting the event was PM Tony Blair, and several key EU Ministers were invited, including Gerhard Schroeder and Jacques Chirac, French President. After the summit meeting, a media centre was to be held just up the road in the celubrious town of Esher known for its glamour and celebrity status.
The Surrey Hall was kitted out with 1500 workstations and fully equipped with mod cons fit for a PM.

Having spent a week away from the frantic furore and chaos of England's terror alerts - it has suddenly dawned on me what is wrong with this country.
When John Reid, Home Secretary labelled the situation 'critical' and then downgraded the threat to 'severe,' I was exasperated by the instant assessment that there no longer is a 'critical' threat to our nation.
Suddenly, talk on the streets about the terror threat from Muslims and immigration and the recent knee jerk reactions to the situation have foregrounded my ever disgust in this Government.

The face of Tony Blair on the front page of the Daily Mail today says it all.
Party animal Blair is suffering for his all nighters with the likes of Snoopy and Stevie Wonder.
He's been all around the world from Africa to America, just to escape the heat of the rebellion he faces back home.
Cabinet colleagues are in revolt over his mis-handlings of the Lebanon crisis. Margaret Beckett looks like a flower witling under the heat of coping with the notorious Foreign secretary job.

Terminator Tony has been on a mission of late. Normally, he is fighting the forces of evil in in the Commons against the new super hero of the Tory Party, David Cameron.

The purpose of these encounters with the rich and famous is not clear. What is behind that grin on our leader's face?
