Gordon Brown will tonight claim Britain can 'inspire the world'.
The prime minister will also boast that 'Britain can lead in the construction of a new global order' during his annual foreign policy speech at the Lord Mayor's Banquet.
'I believe that Britain can challenge the world,' he will say. 'But most importantly of all I believe that Britain can and must play its full part in changing the world and to do so we must have confidence in our distinctive strengths: our global values, global alliances and global actions.
'Because, with conviction in our values and confidence in our alliances, Britain can lead in the construction of a new global order.'
He will also try to boost support for the war in Afghanistan by claiming: 'Al-Qaeda is today the biggest source of threat to our national security.'
The speech also contains comments about international co-operation, which are likely to be seen as an attack on Conservative Euroscepticism. And he will try to win back support from the BNP.
'At every point in our history where we have looked outwards, we have become stronger. And now, more than ever, there is no future in what was once called "splendid isolation",' he will insist.
'When Britain is bold, when Britain is engaged, when Britain is confident and outward-looking, we have shown time and again that Britain has a power and an energy that far exceeds the limits of our geography, our population, and our mean,' the PM will add.
'And that is why I say our foreign policy must be both patriotic and internationalist.'
the modern version of the USSR. I don't know where in Europe you're visiting but if it's a majro city you'll probably find the indigenous people largely displaced and surveillance cameras on every corner.

superstate of soon to be 600 odd million, very wealthy, cultural, historic and enclosed enough to be completely self sufficient and secure while promoting peace, democracy, unity, prosperity and open mindedness.

Britain was more prosperous when at its most independent. If we need the EU it's only because someone deliberately destroyed the UK.

I don't remember voting him in and neither can anyone else in the Country, because he is an unelected Prime Minister. Something completely unheard of in modern times.
