Greetings, citizens. It’s (almost) all about immigration this week, a.k.a. the subject that keeps on giving.
The good people of Switzerland have rejected an immigration cap for their country in a referendum last weekend.
As I always suspected, Germans have a far more relaxed view on immigration than Brits.
As a reminder to always check your facts, here is an analysis of David Cameron’s statement that 1.3 million Brits live abroad. It looks like he might well be off by 40%.
Poland has its first openly gay mayor. (Big shout-out to Słupsk; best place name ever!)
After an election in Moldova, the three pro-European parties are trying to form a coalition government, despite the Socialist Party winning.
But just as we were getting hopeful, here are a few downers:
More than 50 fishermen are missing in the Bering Sea. It’s cold there.
ISIS are said to be launching attacks on Kobane from inside Turkey, although Turkey denies this.
I leave you with this, for reasons of information and amazement:
Until next week!
