DANISH PASTRY….Regular readers know that I already have a reason to love Denmark, but today Dan Drezner gives me another: their commitment to open government. Apparently the Danish prime minister allowed a camera crew to follow him around during the Copenhagen summit last year to discuss enlargement of the EU and much hilarity and embarrassment ensued.
The funny thing is that I suspect I don’t really approve of this. After all, in the world of diplomacy, transparency is not always the best policy. In fact, it’s probably almost never the best policy.
But it sounds like fun anyway.
