Panner meets Alastair Darling ...
Be careful what you say ... it's a small world ...
Alasatir Darling has to fly to some faraway places on his mission to help tackle the global recession. A couple of weekends ago he was in a remote part of Northern Canada for the G7 Finance Ministers meeting – but he discovered he wasn't so far from home after all.
"When I stepped off the plane on Baffin Island – between the Hudson Bay and Greenland – the first Canadian official I met at the airport was a man from Prestonpans."
