Re: Crowd attacks Serbian PM at Srebrenica Anniversary

This is an absurd parody of the origins of the civil war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Please be realistic, what possible means did the incipient state of Bosnia possess to instigate a war of aggression...

Re: WWW DC SF: Great Britain v Australia

No way will Wimbledon be ready or allow any ties on grass, indoors or outdoors. We will just play in whichever arena can accommodate a booking, and it will obviously have to be indoor hard as it is...

Re: Murray fans what would you prefer us open or davis cup?

US Open, by far. I can see that players enjoy the Davis Cup, and they appear to be highly motivated by it in some cases, and I can also see the crowds get into it etc.

However, from a sporting...

Re: Davis Cup QF: Murray/Murray def. Tsonga/Mahut 4-6 6-3 7-6(5) 6-1 [GB 2-1 FRA]

Great energy from the Murrays on court, and fantastic atmosphere in the crowd and on the team.

Wondering who will play Andy tomorrow, Gasquet or Simon? Gasquet has more game, but Simon is probably...

Re: Should voting REALLY be a right granted to all?

What I find funny is that politicians endlessly talk about how to increase voter participation.

My cynicism suggests this is to ensure that voters in aggregate have no idea what politicians have...

Re: Djokovic videobombs Paes interview with CNN

Djokovic does come across as a nice man, but I do agree that this video is less than earth-shattering in its significance.

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

OK, but what evidence is there that there are taxes due that have not been paid? Is this a civil matter that can be addressed by payment of arrears and penalties, or is it criminal?

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

Yes, I am serious. I don't agree that it's a simple matter to track every ship's cargo around the World. Also, resources that might in principle be available to the UK to do so are not necessarily...

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

Excellent interview, thanks. His account of the lack of engagement among Euro-group finance ministers does have a ring of truth to it.

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

But this was all done lawfully and with the support of the then government of Greece!

As for sanctions-busting by UK entities, if you have evidence of this, you should contact the Serious Fraud...

Quite a lot of Greek-flagged vessels here, and many with Greek names registered in Panama and so on.

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

Yes, as did many Syrians, and the Turkish government. Russia of course wants to retain its deep-water naval base in Syria (Tartus). China is mostly opposed to all international intervention in...

The Ukraine situation requires that Russia build a new pipleine to supply Europe with gas.




Greece supported the coalition in the first gulf war, supplying a frigate, chartering many merchant...

Re: Wimbledon Final: Djokovic def. Federer 7-6(1) 6-7(10) 6-4 6-3

Djokovic played well, Federer didn't. His lack of control from the baseline was very damaging - either he was dropping balls short, or hitting them out - but this was kind of expected and forced to...

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

Germany is definitely worried about the "moral hazard" of appearing to allow Greece to get away with fiscal irresponsibility (the historic errors that led to the crisis, followed by patchy attempts...

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

The point is I am exercising self-restraint and avoiding grand theories involving China, Russia, Germany, NATO etc.

As it happens, I have worked as an equity analyst at a top 10 global firm, and do...

Re: Has MTF finally come to its senses?(Murray)

Djokovic is a better player than Murray in general, and he would have beaten him this year at Wimbledon in my opinion had they met. However, I think Andy would have a better shot on grass than on...

Re: Novak is a victim of xenophobia and racism.

There is a lot of paranoia here, and a lot of xenophobia about many nations. Let me keep it simple. Historical wrongs have been committed by many different nations, some more recently than others....

Re: So what the hell is going on with Greece?

One thing's for sure, this Greek thing is fertile territory for every nut-job in the entire World to advance his/her own personal theory of international relations.
