    Some presumably drunken idiot just drove their car into Times Square killing 1 person and injuring over 20 others.

    I say 'presumably' because the arrested suspect has multiple DWI's on their record. Probably gonna catch a life sentence.

    Some news about the EU
    "Change of European tone towards Warsaw and Budapest"

    Hungary
    Spoiler:
    On Wednesday, May 17th, the members of the European Parliament voted with a short majority for a resolution recommending the activation, towards Hungary, in respect of article 7 of the treaty of the European Union. This procedure was still never activated, for a very good reason: if it goes to its term, it can mean depriving a State of its voting rights within the Union.

    http://abonnes.lemonde.fr/europe/art...9395_3214.html (french paper)

    As for Poland, there is nothing but just speculation and debate for the moment.
    Spoiler:
    Only the Czech Republic and Hungary brought a careful support for Poland, suggesting that the dialogue with them should continue "in a bilateral way". The British strangely joined to it. " They favor their interest within the framework of the future negotiation of Brexit at the expense of the democracy ", said a Brussels diplomat on Tuesday.

    What Macron had said during his campaign about Poland.
    Spoiler:
    " Within three months which will follow my election, there will be a decision taken on Poland. I put my responsibility on the table on this subject. We cannot have a country which plays fiscal and social gaps within the European Union and which is in breach with all the principles of the Union. "

    Oh look, a bank was prosecuted because of the 2008 financial crisis!!! Accountability at work...

    ...oh wait, nope, just an ego boosting hunt on a perceived easy target.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    The U.S. military bombed a Syrian military convoy because it got too close to a safe zone/U.S. commando base.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/u-bombs-s...194954568.html

    The convoy was bombed after repeated attempts warning it to turn around were unsuccessful and the decision was made by the U.S. military commanders on base.

    "Was Erdogan personally involved in his bodyguards' attacks on protestors in DC ?"

    Reading the article it seems quite obvious he was, but I guess they can't just say he is. Anyway, Erdogan is a savage. It seems they had first asked the cops to stop the protest which they obviously refused so Erdogan sent his goons down the street and waited his signal.

    Well shit. Thanks Tories. Thanks a lot.
    They've finally learned about the internet and they don't like it one bit. Time to police it hard. :/

    Guess it won't be long before I'll be investing in a VPN.

    Why does it seem like Theresa May decided to turn into a creepy authoritarian tinged populist only like months after gaining power. Like I keep saying "Well Brexit aside, at least the Brits have just garden variety conservatives in power right now and not Farage or something.". And then May seems to be trying to prove me wrong.

    wtf is that. I knew she was doing not-very-nice-things to negotiate the Brexit but what is that? is that the higher step of CCTV? Corbyn must wake the fuck up and start moving his ass.

    Corbyn seems like an immense ineffectual.

    Is the UK as depressing right now for a left wing person as it seems it is. Because it really seems miserable. Unless you're a very hopeful Scot I guess.

    In general it seems that Labour always has a tough hill to climb to win elections (they've governed for 30 out of the past 72 years and half of that are the New Labour years that the current left has burned at the stake) because of the continued belief that despite having their hearts in the right place, nobody trusts them to take good care of the treasury. That only seems to have gotten worse with the continued grip of the Murdoch media empire and the added caveat that they're as bad with immigration as they are with money.

    (Of course I live in a country that's had only one left wing government in its entire parliamentary history so)

    The fact that Corbyn is all for Brexit while the rest of his party is very much against it should probably tell you all you need to know about Labour's current status.

    I thought of Godzilla as the embodiment of violence and hatred for mankind, because he was created by atomic energy. He's like a symbol of humanity's complicity in their own destruction. He doesn't have an emotion. He is an emotion. Jun Fukuda

    Meanwhile, Socialist/Left/Communist/Green governed Portugal is growing past expectations and leaving the EU excessive deficit procedure, while unemplyment has finally dropped below 10%:

    Not everything is perfect, but the country seems to be on the upswing right now. It's been almost 2 decades since living standards have improved and the economy grew significantly. Let's hope this is beginning of a nice trend and that the people who have suffered so much for the past few years can find a good job and stabilize their lives.
    The beginning of wisdom is the statement 'I do not know.' The person who cannot make that statement is one who will never learn anything. And I have prided myself on my ability to learn. (Socrates (Σωκράτης) method to enlighten people, ca. 500 BC)

    Oh So Punchable Nazi Richard Spencer loses his gym membership after a woman accosts him during his workout.

    Gonna admit to mixed feelings here. While seeing a Nazi suffer is never unpleasant, were he anyone else people would be siding with him against the woman, I think.

    Are you super-rich to afford the FinancialTimes ? or is that just the one free article you found ?

    Every time I'm reading it at the University Library I feel like I'm a godamn CEO, or a diplomat.
