Slowly, slowly leaning towards Turkey 

Is having an opinion on a political issue really as difficult as the Austrian political parties are trying to make me believe? Here is the latest update on their views regarding the desireability of negotiations between the EU and Turkey on accession, provided the commission report is positive:

ÖVP, SPÖ, and Grüne have all shifted their positions towards negotiations over the last few days only. SPÖ was firmly against until Sunday. FPÖ remains against but as long as Haider is in favour they hardly mean it. As a conclusion, they all like their populism, but not to be left behind as the sour-faced loser.


Well, the position of the parties is in fact ridiculously unimportant, since the chancellor sees it as his right to position the Austrian government any way he wants. That's real democracy!
