For somebody who has a french huguenot surname you do cover an awful lot of english news from the UK.
Surely you should be focusing on SA news.

Enjoyed the front page on Bild today +The Huffington Post http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/eu-referendum-newspaper-front-pages_uk_576ba917e4b0b1f1704ff9f1

"In a piece beginning “Dear Britain, if you stay in the EU”, it also offers to:

Stop making jokes about Prince Charles’s ears

Not bring a goalkeeper to Germany’s next penalty shootout against a British team “to make it more interesting”

Willingly provide the villain in every Bond film

Come to the Queen’s 100th birthday

Reserve sun loungers for Brits at the beach using towels

To make Jogi Löw, the German football coach, guard the crown jewels

To introduce tea time on the beaches of Majorca"

To be honest I am very sceptic about those reforms.... I think they don't have enough skills to come up with something useful or worthy. I can speak only for my country but we have a prime minister who hasn't even been voted and encouraged people NOT to participate in voting on a referendum in April.... talking about democracy....

+The Register "The campaign against Rule 41 – which will give cops and Feds in America the power to hack people's computers around the world – has kicked up a gear.
Leaders of the US House of Representatives and Senate got a letter today urging them to block the rule change before it becomes permanent in December.
The proposed legislative tweak, quietly passed by an obscure committee and approved by the Supreme Court in April, would allow a US magistrate judge to grant law enforcement access to any stored data on a computer, phone, or any storage device around the world that was suspected of being "related" to a crime.
The amendment would also grant automatic legal approval for police hacking against those who use technology to conceal "the district where the media or information is located." Tor and VPN users, that means you: by accessing information remotely through an anonymizing or proxy service that hides where the information is truly stored, you'll be fair game to the authorities.
On Tuesday, 50 organizations – including Google, PayPal, the TOR Project, Data Foundry, the rather unfortunately named Hide My Ass VPN, the ACLU and the EFF – urged Congress to block the Rule 41 change, saying it was an undemocratic decision and an issue that elected representatives needed to debate rather than usher in via the backdoor.
"The rule changes attempt to sidestep the legislative process by using a process designed for procedural rules to expand investigatory powers," the open letter reads.
"The changes to Rule 41 will disproportionately undermine the privacy of those who have done the most to protect it. Specifically, the proposal would allow warrants for remote hacking in cases where privacy protective technologies obscure the location of a computer."
Congress didn't vote on Rule 41; the Department of Justice got judicial approval instead, and now Congress has until December 1 to pass legislation that would amend, or block, the rule change. "

Germany's Constitutional Court has just rejected a challenge of the European Central Bank's emergency bond-buying scheme (OMT). The European Court of Justice had already cleared OMT but a 35,000-strong German group, including politicians and academics, asked the German court to dismantle it, arguing that it constituted illegal monetary financing, violating German law ... +Reuters

Disappointed in the lack of statesmanlike behaviour and ongoing divisive ugliness from the UK's leaders in government during this referendum campaign, showing disrespect for (what the polls tell us is) the views of around half of the nation.
Our insular ruling elite seems to be dismissing — or worse, demonising — people’s desire to come to an unemotional, informed decision over the things that matter to them, and their perfectly reasonable expectation that the government they elect should have the power to deliver its promises.
Sadly the rulers seem to be the ones stoking the anger they decry.
So unfortunate to see this historic opportunity to demonstrate to the world the attitude and culture of Britain (which first drew me to this country as an immigrant 40 years ago) - to resolve disagreements respectfully and to display firm and supportive leadership -squandered.
Lets pray that Friday morning can see the start of healing rifts that opened up in the last weeks.

Democracy? It looks like there is unhappiness among ANC members in the Pretoria/Tshwane region‚ as the mayoral candidate was not the candidate nominated by local ANC branches.

Community protests in Pretoria are spreading through the capital city following the announcement of Thoko Didiza as the ruling African National Congress' mayoral candidate for Tshwane.
