EU and Mugabe

I'm building up to a real rant on this one, but sdaly have meeting for most of the day so it will have to wait. Suffice to say its a fucking scandal that the EU is allowing him anywhere near us let alone talking to the fascist bastard.

And I won't be lectured by the EU about talking to fascists:

EU President Jose Manuel Barroso has criticised Mr Brown's decision, saying that leaders sometimes have to meet people they disapprove of.

No we don't, we tried that in '39 and it didn't work.

Agreed. But we did have the Saudi Islamo-fascists over here recently, didn't we?

Fair point and the easiest answer would be oil and trade. I would say that the main difference is that whilst the Saudi's are mistreating their people, especially women, and spnsoring madrassas they are, by and large trying to live peacfully and do the best for their people.

Another point, as far as the EU position goes is that we didn't have a travel ban on the Saudi leadership before they came here. Only a minor salve of consience but does reduce the hypocrisy.
