The unelected Cathy Ashton

The BBC report that:
'The EU's foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who met with Egypt's former president Mohammed Morsi, has been speaking to the BBC.

Baroness Ashton is the first foreign diplomat to meet with the former President since he was ousted from power in early July.

The BBC's Jim Muir asked the Baroness if she shared any common ground with Mr Morsi: "There has to be a way of getting to the other side," she said.
Any common ground between Mohammed Morsi and Cathy Ashton? Let's see, Mohammed Morsi was elected and then deposed whilst Cathy Ashton has never been elected but with a little luck will also be deposed.

It really gets my goat, pun intended, when the BBC in this linked report tell us that:
'EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton says Egypt's ousted President Mohammed Morsi is "well", but that she does not know where he is being held.

Baroness Ashton said she had two hours of "frank, in-depth" discussions with Mr Morsi on Monday, without giving further details of the conversation.'
The unelected and unaccountable Lady Ashton, did she maybe lecture Mohammed Morsi on the benefits of democracy? From a purely theoretical point of view of course.
