Apart from the bleeding obvious, I mean. Which country is not in the G7 but is in the G8? Or are they completely different things?

so no-one else has any idea, either?

OR you all know and are chortling at the ignoramous?

Or this is one of the most boring threads ever...

Thank you, policy! Ask a wonk...

Is the fact that they are meeting as the G7, not the G8, a tad ominous, then?

Is the meeting officially a G7 one, or is it just 'meeting with 7 other finance ministers'?

No idea, just been references to G7 in the papers (saw it again today).
