Thread: European Politics Thread

    The UK parliment feels like it's 70% booing, waving their papers, stomping, shouting order and right honorable insults. Seems much more free form and active than our equivilent which is basically a sleeping pill of people taking turns to read text in absolute silence.

    I think you mean drinking milk and going to bed at a reasonable hour. It is only socially acceptable to get cripplingly drunk on weekends so you can't be drunk in the riksdag. Dunno if its still cool to bring an axe tho, but unless they are drunk you can expect any of those toffs to throw an axe at anyone

    Boris clever new plan to just close the parliment again in the same way after it was declared illegal seems like a sensible course to take. It is amazing that no one else ever thought of that one

    Erdogan lost the elections in Istanbul this summer. If the opposition parties keep their alliance against Erdogan, maybe they can "overthrow" (big word) the current president. But there won't be any election before 2023...

    Nobel prizes for Literature being given out to a Polish author pissing off the nationalists in her country (that's good!) and a Miloslevic apologist (that's fucking bad)

    something something land of contrasts

    Also there will never be a more 2019 thing than pulling this bullshit with Handke literally just a year after y'all skipped the Nobel due to a controversy haha what the fuck guys

    I never saw Poland as a country full of nationalists. Or is this a common trend to most countries near Germany?

    Poland's been doing a fast slide into right-wing authoritarianism, like Hungary.

    It isn't, it's about 50/50 or 60/40.

    The problem is that the opposition is fragmented and the nationalists win elections with the prospect of more social benefits (especially child benefits). The refugee crisis did the rest.
