Creating his own metaphor

Pascal Lamy, the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (which, through no fault of his, is about as effective as the "World Organisation" occasionally seen in Austin Powers films) ran the New York City Marathon yesterday. He finished in 3:50 which is not bad at all, although the average speed of 8.5 miles an hour is nicely representative of the pace of global trade talks.
