Speech Goes Well, Assassin Fails to Shoot

The video shows a would-be assassin pointing a pistol at the leader of the moderate Bulgarian-Turkish liberal minority party, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, Ahmed Dogan, during his speech at a national party conference in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The failed assassin named as Oktai Enimehmedov holds the pistol an inch away from Dogan’s face. Dogan flinches, and Enimehmedov pauses for a second without firing, giving the politician time to push away the gunman’s hand.

Ahmed Dogan was reportedly about to announce that he was stepping down as chief of the party he founded after the fall of communism.

Dear All,

As you know, this is John's last day as ST editor, so he 
would like to invite anyone who is still here after the 
first edition is put to bed to come by his office and have 
a farewell drink. It's also a chance to celebrate the 
appointment of Martin as the new Obergruppenfuhrer 
(kommissarisch).

Ivens surely isn’t that right-wing…

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
