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).

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
