Thank you very much Mr deputy speaker well if I may continue briefly with my 1984 analogy. We are all familiar in politics with the concept of ‘doublethink’ the ability to hold two contradictory views simultaneously in your mind. It comes out in all sorts of ways, for example: a lot of people will be uh aggressively in favor of the rights of indigenous communities in poor parts of the world to be left undisturbed, and yet will be aggressively in favor of uh immigration, multiculturalism in other parts of the world. That’s human nature, I suppose we all do that. But Tibet is a particularly egregious example of it, in this Chamber we like to pat ourselves on the back for being on the side of democracy and freedom and self determination but when we try to apply that same logic to the (EU) European Union the ‘doublethink’ kicks in. If Tibet are better off living under their own laws and their own people then why not are Portuguese, or Germans, or British people or any other democratic community in Europe. How extraordinarily that having developed this idea of National Self Determination and exported it around the world, we’ve turned our backs on it, here in the Continent it came from.
