Most likely, but I don't think that question is as serious as the question of the moral and constitutional bankruptcy the government is operating under.


... Which pales into insignificance when compared with the matter of the moral and constitutional bankruptcy of the European Union, its anti-democratic policies and the destruction it has caused, particularly to the poorer counties in Southern Europe, with its integrationist policies.

HL, I have come to the conclusion that you live in your own EUtopian vacuum, devoid of much connection with reality.

Is there any chance of keeping to the topic under discussion? Your pet hobbyhorses are well known, and not always relevant.

I believe July is the time that the EU will start to notice the elephant in the room!

As has been observed elsewhere, not everything gets reported. Editors appear to have decided that other areas of news should be given priority when it comes to column inches or air time. What's going on in Peru right now is being completely ignored by our media.
