Sunday Mail Opinion: Tony Blair, Jacques Chirac, Junichiro Koizumi, George Bush, Gerhard SchrUder, Vladimir Putin, Silvio Berlusconi and Paul Martin. MAKE HISTORY IN SCOTLAND.. MAKE POVERTY HISTORY


JULY 2, 2005... a day to be remembered in history as the greatest show of humanity on Earth.

The star-studded Live8 concert at Hyde Park, the amazing Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart Club band opening and fine words from Sir Bob Geldof.

The momentous Band of Hope rally in Edinburgh, where people from all walks of life demonstrated in peace.

The day when humanity took a giant leap forward and recognised that those who are dying of poverty are not strangers in a strange land - they are our brothers and sisters.

Yesterday, ordinary people grabbed the chance to change history in a way no other generation could dream of.

Cynics will say it was naive to hope the actions of ordinary men and women will make a difference to the eight men who meet at Gleneagles this week.

Well, we would rather be naive, optimistic and dreaming of an end to poverty than wallowing in pessimism and indifference. How can anyone see the images of children dying of poverty and not give a damn?

The biggest disgrace would be if all this passion, all this energy, came to nothing and ended as diplomatic fudge.

We don't want to wake up on the morning of July 2, 2010, to find that all the fine words and fine sentiments have been for nothing. By then it will be too late.

Delaying extra G8 aid until 2010 would leave a pounds 56billion black hole that Africa could never fill.
