Returning to Britain, I joined another band and hey presto, two of the members were Swedish. Perplexingly we never got round to playing a gig in their home country, but we did manage to all go to a wedding in Stockholm which is the first and only time I've ever seen a wedding cake being thrown across a dancefloor. It ended up, quite literally, in the best man's face.

Denmark and Gran Canaria are both pretty insular. On Gran Canaria, the gene pool's more of a dipping pond. Mellish refers to the blue-eyed boys and girls of monoculture Denmark where between 5 and 10 percent of the population aren't derived from Danish stock.

True, there are easier places to get a tan, but the Faroes still have an irresistible allure for anyone who appreciates wild places. When the mist lifts, the fog clears and the rain dries up, their beauty is nothing short of mind-blowing.

Island holidays in Europe are the perfect way to unwind. Who wouldn't want to spend their holiday sipping cocktails in Capri, lazing on the soft white sand of the Greek Islands or hiking in rugged Malta? With so many beautiful Mediterranean island destinations to choose from it's easy to forget that Europe is also home to some lesser-known but equally charming islands.

On the EU, Britain Should Take Some Danish Lessons

Giles Goodall

The British and Danish debates about Europe have much in common - concerns about migration (read 'benefit tourism'), a sense of threatened national identity, and the division of national and EU powers (to opt in or to opt out, that is the question) - but the tone and direction differ enormously.

Book Review: Tabish Khair, How to Fight Islamist Terror From the Missionary Position

Claire Chambers | Posted 23.04.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Claire Chambers

This is a fast-paced, hilarious novel that nonetheless has sufficient depth to withstand several re-readings. If there's any justice, it's going to be as big a hit in Euro-America as it has been in Khair's home country of India.

The 'Denmark Dolphin Slaughter'

I've seen various articles on the so-called 'Denmark dolphin slaughter' posted all day on social media... I know the pictures look shocking but there's surely more to it? The more I read the less convinced I am that all the outrage is actually well-placed (as well-meaning as I'm sure it is). Firstly a few obvious corrections should be made. Number one: it's not really Denmark we're talking about here. This happens on the Faroe islands - an autonomous, self-governing region lying isolated in the Norwegian Sea midway between the UK, Iceland and Norway.
