I was disturbed to read that Britain is prepared to formally recognise a Palestinian state unless Israel opens peace talks with the Palestinians.
David Cameron last night warned Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu that the UK is prepared to recognise an independent Palestine at a United Nations meeting in September. British diplomats described the threat as one of Britain’s few ‘levers’ to press Israel to join talks with Palestinian officials.

Meanwhile, in another bizarre move, William Hague has been suggesting that North African c0untries could aspire to some sort of membership of the EU, creating the potential for millions of Muslims to enter the EU, legally.
This Coalition is beyond inept when it comes to policy – and these latest pronouncements bring despair and laughter in equal measure.
