Bipartisan politics: between autocracy and multi-party coalition

Recently, Allister Heath (b.1977) wrote an intriguing article in The Telegraph, entitled: For the first time in my life, I’m now beginning to think Britain is finished. Its subtitle was another clear message: "The country’s self-image as tolerant, decent and hard-working is being smashed. It’s only going to get worse". My main thought was: what is the difference...

Na enige nachten wikken en wegen zei mijn instinct dat ik haar...

First Criminal of the United States (FiCUS)

Jill Biden is the First Lady of the United States or FLOTUS. There's a new category now: First Criminal of the United States or FiCUS. The presumption of innocence makes no logical sense - in his case. I'm quite sure that this "deeply wounded narcissist" would be loud and proud carrying his latest title. His latest indictment is his most serious one: "efforts to...
