I think you will find the Lib Dem blog most read by Tories today is mine!

I don't really get the objection to Turkey joining, apart from German racism.

Greece supports it, and so do all our major parties.

I agree with some "hold" on Turkish free movement of labour util we have more equal economies, but I see no reason Turks are to be considered lower than the Ducth, Greeks, Italians, Latvians or Romanians (etc).

The territory of Turkey is integral to all European history, and the Ottoman Empire, as the precursor to Ottoman Turkey was a central part of the European power system in the 18th and 19th century.

Plus, Turks are often nice people and have really great food.

Mr Dale - re Emily Thornberry and her faith in growth.

You should point out that even 'way back when', when we had growth, Brown ran deficits. We have a massive structural deficit, brought about by govt spending let run hopelessly out of control by Brown, and an over reliance on banking profits fed by voodoo economics.

EVERYONE should point this out at every available opportunity - Brown always ran deficits from the moment he stopped following Conservative spending plans.

Irfan Ahmed proved less tolerant of dissenting opinion than than The Sun, and almost as sophisticated.
