No News is Good News from Cordoba

The early train was taken to Cordoba and no news is good news, a day without news and when i got back there is still no “real” news, or am I missing something? Well, of course I am and a rather feeble attempt to “catch up” led to this wonderful “no news news” story in the ‘Guardian’; “A confidential EU report accuses the Israeli government of using settlement expansion, house demolitions, discriminatory housing policies and the West Bank barrier as a way of “actively pursuing the illegal annexation” of East Jerusalem.”(1) “A EU report concluded”, well, surprise, surprise and “The EU report goes further, saying that the demolitions are “illegal under international law, serve no obvious purpose, have severe humanitarian effects, and fuel bitterness and extremism.”(2) “Illegal under international law”, have we got that, let it register and what are we going to do about it?
Nothing today obviously and off I went, early morning train, traipsing for the fourth time through the “mezquita”, the little side streets, the sun has got its hat on hip-hip-hip hooray and, well, sometimes, no news really is good news and it’s mostly no news anyway, a variation of the theme and are we going to be waken up? Not me, not today!

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
