The Austrians take over the Presidency of the EU next month. The political temperature in Vienna will rise steadily towards November, with elections due. Eighty per cent of Austrians are against Turkey being allowed to join the EU. Will the Austrians use their Presidency in Brussels to put a brake on enlargement? In February the winter Olympics raise a snow flurry in Turin, helping to keep television outside-broadcast crews usefully occupied in the off-season. In March (postponed for a week so as not to be snuffed out on the small screen by the finals in Turin) the Motion Picture Academy Awards will burst upon Los Angeles. Meantime, another of those optional sports occasions, the Commonwealth Games, will happen in Melbourne. In either late March or April, Canada, the country in which, reputedly, citizens of every other nation would most like to live, has an election. http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/columnists/eric_waugh/story.jsp?story=674191
