We Brits should probably watch TV news tonight for Trevor McDonald's interview with the great dictator. Best to know the enemy and all that! Actually, so much has been revealed in advance that we can be pretty sure George was not listening to the Live8 congregation. Jon Snow will report further from Africa no doubt, but this link is for the new G8 blog started by Channel 4 News. Keep it in your favourites this week.
