Selective Hearing

One of Corbett's latest blog entries is spent hyping up an upcoming "European Festival" where members of the public will be able to meet Labour, Tory and LibDem MEP's (how ever will the public be able to tell the difference?).

Described as part of the "2008 European Year of Intercultural Dialogue" it features a whole splendid day of entertainment. The question is; why? Is "Europe" now a culture? A country?

The event is apparently "free and for everyone" which begs the question; why is the UK office of the European Parliament paying for such a "dialogue" day when the British people are making their thoughts very clear in every opinion poll there is?!
