Light Blogging ...

As ever, take a look at the Dumb One's stuff.

Just a wee thought, as Turkey's potential EU entry is all ove the broadsheets and BBC. I'm getting a flavour of 'they're really nice - but if we don't let them in they'll be our enemies forever' from the usual suspects. Would you let someone into a party with a pitch like that ?

You do have to wonder what dark fears lurk in the hearts of liberals. General de Gaulle put a ten-year block on Britain's membership of the EU - yet I don't recall any sense of a 'clash of civilisations'.

Ther's a bit of a parallel with the BBC's view of British Muslims, spun in this report as 'nice guys - and if you say different watch out for riots'.
