Not My Leader Of The Free World

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 18, 2017 in Immoral Conversations |

I have a great problem with the idea behind the title of this post, a title which has been used many times over the years and which, unsurprisingly, refers exclusively to the President of the United States of America. I have a problem with it for many reasons. The main one, of course, is that […]

Anis Amri Is Dead: Now The Work Begins

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 23, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The news that Anis Amri, the terrorist suspected of driving a lorry into the Christmas market in Berlin, is dead came from Italy and spread very quickly through the media. For many this is good news; a terrorist has been eliminated and cannot strike again. For others it is merely the beginning, and the trail […]

Education: Is This Our World?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 23, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I’ve seen quite a few videos on YouTube recently where a television presenter has interviewed ordinary people on the street, asking them a series of easy general knowledge questions. The answers have been, to put it mildly, disappointing. Then I also spent some time reading through lists of Tweets, Facebook updates, Yahoo Questions and similar, […]

Turkey: A Future In The European Union?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 2, 2016 in News & Opinion |

It seems almost like an eternity since Turkey first made tentative moves to join the European Union. Since then the moves have expanded into a full investigation on the possibilities and, to the dissatisfaction of the Turkish government, a series of demands which must be met before membership can seriously be considered. Among many things […]

Marmite And Europe?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 12, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

This could be a big one. This could be the battle which finally decides the future of the United Kingdom, and their relationship with Europe. After all the lies and the propaganda of the Brexit campaign – on both sides – something has happened which could be a turning point. Apparently the major British supermarket […]

British Politics: Name And Shame

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 5, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Welcome to the new, improved United Kingdom, while it lasts. If you thought that things couldn’t get worse than they already are, the latest news from the small island out there in the North Sea will undoubtedly make you splutter over your Earl Grey tea and buttered scones in consternation. The United Kingdom Independence Party […]

The Downside To Democracy?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 4, 2016 in News & Opinion |

The last two weeks have been an absolute mudslide of news about major changes, or potential changes, to the political and social world. You just need to take a glance at the presidential campaign in the USA to see how far things can go, with threats, lies, counter-lies, facts and fictions dominating the news headlines. […]

Switzerland: Immigration And Crime

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 15, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There are two sides to every story, whether it be that told by a refugee who has struggled across foreign lands to get to a new home, or that of those who live in the country he or she has sought out and fears for their future. There are two sides to fear too: the […]

Oil Prices, Stock Market Falls

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 8, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Panic in the City? As with many recent years, the stock market, especially in the USA, has suffered a fall in values. This year it has been considerably more than in previous starts, and many people are worried. Billionaires – and those with lesser means – have lost millions in trading. At the same time […]

Terrorism: The Years Ahead

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 31, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The players have changed, but their methods remain the same: attack, destroy, confine, maim, rape. It has never been, and never will be, simply a case of attacking with guns and bombs; the fear of attack must also be sown; the constant worry that the streets are no longer safe; the realization that we, as […]
