W´s old-time fervour for liberty

Bush´s brilliant speech uplifts because we know he means what he says and will act on it - no soft-soapy bromide this. In contrast, Europolitical aversions to Bush seem increasingly petulant and remote from reality.

The brouhaha around the Airbus, Europe´s success of this week, is all very well, but a one-off success for state-subsidised aeronautics, for all the self-congratulation attending it, doesn´t offset the global impotence and irrelevance of our Europoliticians.

One wishes W´s old-time fervour for liberty and optimism were catching.
