Britain and The Cartoons

The EU has come out with a declaration on those cartoons. Check out the contribution from Britain, a country led by a man who is, I am repeatedly told by his cheerleaders over here, a defender of freedom:

“Britain had called for the EU to show regret over the publication of the 12 cartoons, which were first published in a Danish newspaper last year. However, both the Dutch and Czech governments were opposed to apologizing for the cartoons’ publication, saying that would be detrimental to media freedoms.”

The Czechs, of course, know what it means to lose your freedom. If Blair goes on like this, so, one day, might Britain.

Via the Pub Philosopher, who has a lot more to say (none of it cheerful) on where Britain now stands.
