Europe doesn’t do democracy

Posted by Richard Wednesday, November 17, 2004

Not quite the title of Janet Daley’s superb piece in the Telegraph today, but close enough.

This is an absolutely stunning response to Blair’s speech (reported on this Blog yesterday) and is an absolute "must read".

For those rather dismal commentators who, in the context of Iraq, claim that you cannot impose democracy at the point of a gun, they should read this and also recall that is precisely what the Allies did to Germany and Japan in 1945. The only pity is that, while they were about it, the Allies didn't also do the same to France.
