UK PM Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have proposed a multi-billion-dollar fund to help developing nations deal with climate change.

Mr Brown said the $10bn (£6bn) fund should also be used to help developing nations cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Both spoke at the Commonwealth summit in Trinidad, the last major world forum before the global summit on climate change in Copenhagen on 7 December.

Many Commonwealth members are island states threatened by rising sea levels.

Mr Sarkozy, with UN chief Ban Ki-moon and Danish Prime Minister Prime Lars Loekke Rasmussen, is there to give weight to any climate change statement.

The topic is the only issue on the Commonwealth summit's agenda for the first day

Is this guy stupid or what? During their 12 years in office Labour have racked up a considerable amount of debt (largely due to Gordon Brown!) and thanks to his government's poor leadership we're still in a recession while everyone else is climbing out of it and he wants to give away £800 million? It's not even for a good cause! If this spend-a-holic absolutely has to send £800 million overseas, why can't it be to combat poverty and disease instead?

That man must go. Period. I don't care if we have to put up with another one of his socialist cronies for the next half a year - just get this fool out!

Voting for Labour at the next general election will be the equivalent of shooting yourself in the foot.

What the hell is he thinking? That we have an ever-lasting stream of cash? I've never liked Gordon Brown and I agree with you totally. Its time for him to leave, now more than ever.

Its time for him to leave, now more than ever.I guess he knows he's not got a chance at the general election*, so he's trying to take the rest of the country down with him as he crashes and burns.

*That said though, recent polls put Labour up only just behind the Conservatives. Have people gone mad? Why can't the left-wingers in this country vote Lib Dem? I'd seriously considering campaigning for them simply because they should be this country's main liberal party, not the Stalinist Labour party!

Pretty much. Nothing surprises me about them anymore. Meanwhile, students from less well off backgrounds are desperate (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8379671.stm) because their student loan money hasn't arrived yet. By the way Ben, did you get my reply to the visitor's message? At least the Lib Dems can see Labour for what it is at the moment as well.

You sure that's not just media hype? You know the media would give out any news regardless if it's junk for money ;) Except for obviously news on TV.

Developing nations are not the ones that must cut greenhouse gas emissions.Well, if you subscribe to all that green stuff then everyone should try and cut greenhouse gas emissions. However, I think we should be focusing on more important things.

So you think Brown really stinks?Yes.

I wasn't intending to do either. I was just making **** jokes :(

Okay, I understand that I've pushed myself too much and now I'm a bit red in the face :o

Hmm…I wonder how long until Obama redistributes the wealth under some similar kaka-mania scheme like this? It's socialism at its finest, no doubt about it!

Actually "we" do. Well, certainly not the governments, but the banks do.

Those who actually lived under extreme socialism would laugh at you right now.
