Pure Denis

*Please feel sorry for these men

Now that our MPs have signed away our rights via the Lisbon Treaty/Constitution they have very little to do as Westminster is subservient to Brussels: alas few of our MPs seem to have grasped this. No longer needed to run our affairs they use the free time to demonstrate their grasp of world events, or not as the case may be. So Denis MacShane has written in the Telegraph on the subject of Georgia and it is pure Denis, see HERE. MacShane sets off with a reference to events of 40 years ago -

Czechoslovakia was once described by a Conservative prime minister as "a faraway country of which we know nothing".

Note how the Prime Minister does not have a name and wonder how candid today's PM would be if asked a searching question about Georgia. For MacShane is confusing his readers with his quotes and may himself be confused. The quote about the faraway country was by Neville Chamberlain in 1938 (and is misquoted) and 40 years ago, 1968, Alexander Dubček was the leader of Czechoslovakia when the Russian tanks rolled across the border to end the period known as the Prague Spring.
