Riots


Concerning the riots in Birmingham at the weekend: questioned on Channel 4 News, Sunday, about whether there was any evidence for the alleged rape of a 14-year-old Jamaican girl , one of the 'community leaders' said there must be evidence because the 'community' believed it to be so.

Well, at least the election result in Poland is another blow for the flat tax (taux d’imposition unique). On the other hand, the president who has just been elected seems to be a Catholic fundamentalist, wants a crackdown on homosexuals and the death penalty.

Some might count this as a negative too: he is supposed to distrust both Russia and the EU and look to the US as his sole ally.
