Greetings, citizens. Europe has its very own measles outbreak now, isn’t that nice? Not. More about that later.
Citizens, there’s a ghost haunting the corridors of Westminster. A demented, racist ghost with delusions of grandeur.
Much of this week’s news focuses on the meeting of world leaders in Asia and Australia for the G20 Summit. There is other news going on, but that’s what’s dominating the headlines.
Greetings, citizens. It’s Scottish referendum day! History in the making! I’m firmly in the let’s-wait-and-see camp, so go follow the news broadcaster of your choice and meet me here next week to discuss the results.

Hello and welcome back to more regular updates from Europe. Unfortunately, the news don’t really stop during the summer break, so let’s see what’s been happening.

Greetings, citizens, from the land that knows no spring (I’m *this* close to getting the phrase patented and internationally recognized)!

You thought that would read “Putin,” didn’t you? But no, citizens, this week seems to be all about Poland, God knows why. Let’s get to it.
