    I DON'T think the British have it in them to truly hate the French. Despite our jocular outpourings of hop-off-you-Frogs banter, despite being frequently messed around by their surly air traffic controllers, despite having often seen their bullying unions intimidate British lorry drivers and burn British products, and despite having fought numerous wars against them, I think the British quite like the French.Maybe "like" is putting it too highly. But the British admire a certain je ne sais quoi about French life.If a Brit is in any part of France from Paris to Provence, he or she is likely to...

    The Daily Mirror is supposedly a very left-wing, anti-U.S. rag in the United Kingdom.

I hope that there's never some murderous little tyrant - another Hitler, another Milosevic - that Europe needs help in taming. I hope...

    ONE year ago, the world witnessed a unique kind of broadcasting - the mass murder of thousands, live on television. As a lesson in the pitiless cruelty of the human race, September 11 was up there with Pol Pot's mountain of skulls in Cambodia, or the skeletal bodies stacked like garbage in the Nazi concentration camps. An unspeakable act so cruel, so calculated and so utterly merciless that surely the world could agree on one thing - nobody deserves this fate. Surely there could be consensus: the victims were truly innocent, the perpetrators truly evil. But to the world's eternal...

    No matter what your views on President Bush's statement of upcoming war, this, from an English journalist, is very interesting. Just a word of background for those of you who aren't familiar with the UK's Daily Mirror. This is a notoriously left-wing daily that is normally not supportive of the Colonials across the Atlantic.
