Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
David Puttnam: `I feel no sense of identity for the country I grew up in'
As a member of the House of Lords he has worked to remind colleagues of the damage this meandering mess could do to Ireland and Anglo-Irish relations. In February he spoke at length about the power of the Irish lobby in America and how Britain's recklessness would not be forgiven, nor forgotten, should they seek a preferential trade agreement with the United States in the future.

Do those in "the other place" listen?

"I have grown increasingly incredulous, not just in terms of what I'm hearing but in terms of what I'm not hearing," he tells me. "The ignorance towards Ireland and Irish politics and history by British parliamentarians has come as an unbelievable shock to me. I started off being puzzled by it, then concerned and now downright angry."
