old school diplomacy

Before 24/7 news coverage, internet, youtube, google, twitter etc, I would like to think that this is what went on when leaders met.

It is impossible to keep secrets any more, every word or glance is scrutinised, analysed, criticised.

What Jose said about Cristina and cross-eyed Nestor was refreshingly candid, there should be more of it.

Why not speak the truth.  It is impossible that they all like each other, so why not call a spade a fucking shovel?

At least you know where you stand.
