Thanks Felipa, I'm going to try to get to that, if I make it over for the Portaferry gathering.

Most recent guest, yes, I take your point about north and south - though if that figure of 95 per cent still holds good, I'm frankly amazed. Even if it does, it should not affect the issue. Turkey is 98 per cent Muslim and since a few months ago is even governed by a Muslim party, but there has so far been no attempt to change the country's constitutional status as a secular state.
