5 years, 5 months, 1 Day, 22 hours, 24 minutes ago...It never works? Let’s try again!
Welcome to Europe, Continent of the Crazies:
Troublingly, the watered-down EU plan, which will be reviewed over the coming weeks, allowed for "exceptional circumstances" under which states may suspend the EU's stability and growth pact demanding a three per cent public deficit limit. In short, there's no EU bank rescue fund but there is an agreement to allow the European Union to become a potentially bottomless pit of public spending at the expense of European taxpayers. Of course, that is what the EU French Presidency terms a victory.Emphasized my
Whatever Darling decides, the Government's plans must not simply be designed to mimic the actions of our German friends, of which the German minister, Wolfgang Schäuble, said on Monday: "We learnt from worldwide economic crisis of the 1920s and 1930s that and (sic) economic crisis can result in an incredible threat for all of society."I choose to trust a German on that, and the current rise of all kinds of European Collectivism extremists—Fascists from the Far-right to the Far-left— makes for a distressing vindication.
We've seen it coming—correction, we are seeing it coming—and kept warning each others but to no effect ; Boy, am I sick of this subcontinent, its people and their inability—or unwillingness—to learn from their own past mistakes.

One item in this morning's email had the opposite effect however, and actually managed to be lightly entertaining. Check this out:
* Iran unveils plan for women's car *(Emphasis mine).
Iran announces plans for a car designed specially for women, with features aimed at appealing to females.
Full story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/em/-/1/hi/world/middle_east/7657810.stm
Nice choice of words, indeed, for a spineless article on Iranian women's plight—apparently, the harshest words the Beeb can muster are, quote,
the official Iranian concept of equality is very different from that understood by Western feminists.—made even funnier by the AFP photo they picked up to illustrate the thing: a veiled woman at the wheel.
Funny heh? Yet I won't be outdone or outspoken, and will henceforth suggest another Iran-related top story which I hope the BBC will include in tomorrow's daily email. Check this out:
* Hang out in Tehran: Iranian Tourism Ministry publishes the 2008 Best Gay Bars Guide *I am so in the mood for fun that I shall expect nothing less than your best (Islamic) women driving jokes in the comments, thank you very much.
