    I am amazed at the number of mulslim countries in that list
    Trade/Money.

    Makes a mockery of any idea of solidarity or unity.

    The clout China has in the west is huge but in Africa and Asia it's truly scary.

    For a bit of good news, the far-right populist coalition government in Italy tumbled a couple weeks ago, but instead of going for a new election (which would have almost surely given the far right party a much bigger majority), they actually went for a new government made of a left-wing party and the usual populists.

    Unfortunately, what worries me is that the left-wing party and the populists disagree on a whole lot of things, so I don't expect this new government to last long - and when it inevitably falls, it will be a matter of whether people have forgotten enough about the far-right party to not vote for them anymore. At the moment, the far right is ahead in most popularity surveys, well ahead of the populists too (who were much more popular last year). Which is why a new election right now would have probably been a disaster.

    Disaster averted... for now.

    Itís a hideous election stunt, and hopefully one that massively backfired at the polls.

    You're always going on about Benjamin Netanyahu. Let it go, you're never going to meet him.

    I think itís because thereís likely to be a coalition if the left wing donít win, which hopefully they do...
