Freshta Raper, the Iraqi Kurd exile who and berated Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, the columnist, for her anti-war views on Question Time the other week, has been trying to meet up with George Galloway MP. The Sunday Telegraph followed her on the trail as the anti-war MP tried to wiggle his way out of the meeting. Quite a revealing little story.

Also, in the Observer, Nick Cohen provides some of the historical background to the Kurdish situation and offers a warning about dangers for the future.
