Gordon Brown’s quality time with Angela Merkel has had a lot of coverage (pic nicked from the Coffee House) but as Jonathan Isaby points out today, her trip to London this week was yet another missed opportunity to meet David Cameron.

Brushing off any idea of an overt snub (as was also alleged about Sarkozy when he was in London) a spokesman told Isaby that Cameron hadn’t asked to meet her this time but that their offices were talking about them meeting at some point in the future.

Merkel is certainly still hung-up on the issue, as is her Chief of Staff, and she and Sarkozy did number among the eleven centre-right leaders who threatened to cut-off bilateral relations with Cameron if he took the party out of their federalist grouping.
