An Ineffectual Woman
After reading Delphius' post last night I realised I thought much the same, although when she was talking on Sky, my mind was more on cooking. David Cameron did speak on television later but, as Del asks, where was our Foreign Secretary?
It this a slow and deliberate takeover of our foreign policy by the EU or is it a desperate bid by Cathy Ashton to build up her media profile? Or both?
The woman is disliked by her peers. She says she intends to visit Egypt as soon as possible, but they don't want her. Her recent article in the Guardian was rightly mocked.
Until the Egyptians ask for our advice we should leave them alone and allow the people to develop their own style of democracy. I wish them well. It will be a long, grinding road.
