Chirac to plead for Turkey on TV 

Good for Jacques Chirac - he is appearing on French TV this evening to make the case for Turkey joining the EU. With the abysmal state of inter-communal relations in France, and the vitriolic opposition to Turkish accession from many 'mainstream' French politicians - to say nothing of the de Villepins or the Le Pens of this world - this is a gutsy move.

It reconfirms my view that Chirac may be a cute hoor, but when it comes to the really big issues he's on the side of the angels.
