Chancellor of the World
The Chancellor of the World Exchequer. That is how Gordon Brown appeared today as he delivered his global budget speech at the end of this G20 summit.
It all felt so very familiar - and yet at the same time so very different.
There was the traditional Brown announcement of a nice round headline-chasing figure - a trillion dollars of funds to underwrite exports and for the IMF to support struggling economies.
There was an attempt to glide over the fact that the countries here did not agree to spend more - or indeed to borrow more - to fund another fiscal stimulus, though they certainly didn't rule it out.
And, as so often when Mr Brown was chancellor, the much-touted row with France never actually materialised.
The cheerleaders for this budget speech were, though, not Labour backbenchers but world leaders. They have been full of praise for the prime minister - not least the man who's still the most popular politician in the world: President Obama.
That will do Gordon Brown's political standing at home no harm at all.
However, with this budget - like them all - it's best not to judge on the day and better to wait a while and see how good it looks then.
