The Economist – finger on the pulse.

I’ve subscribed to the Economist for twenty years. It’s wonderful on the Kurds in Turkey, the latest PNV election results in the Basque Country and anything happening in Quebec. Yesterday it gave us the honour of an article: The double act continues.
You get:
“In elections for the Northern Ireland Assembly on May 5th, the Democratic Unionist Party and Sinn Fein consolidated their positions as the biggest unionist and nationalist party respectively. The DUP’s Peter Robinson (left) and Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness (right) will continue as first minister and deputy first minister in the devolved executive. ”
We get:
“Meanwhile, in Wales, Labour performed strongly, narrowly failing to win an overall majority in the devolved Assembly”
Hmmm I was hoping for a little bit more…

Welsh Nationalist. Rugby Fan. Know a bit about History and Railways…
