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…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
