New Neighbours

All day long the talk radio stations have been wittering over William Hague's absurd claims of success in his Libyan adventure, whilst questioning why the same intervention is not justified in Syria where Assad is now killing citizens by the thousands.

As I blogged at the beginning of the assault on Libya, this campaign was started for Anglo-French political self-interest. Britain is now left looking very stupid and its military is more depleted than ever.

This will not be lost on Argentina which is bound to test this weakness with another swipe at Falkland Islands.

If only Hague had shut up, the world might still have thought Britannia was a force to be reckoned with.

But then again, what's the point of having an army to defend your country if the borders are wide open? 

The same radio shows have been chattering about possible Turkish entry into the European Union. 

What a wonderful prospect ... millions of Turks flooding into Britain for free schooling, healthcare and old-age pensions. 

And just imagine the huge reciprocal benefits we in Britain will reap from Turkey's entry!   

Effectively we shall have a new border with Iran and Syria.

What a lovely thought.
