The people of Greece have voted no to a deal that is no longer on the table: the result makes it difficult for a deal to be reached, when time is pressing, making Grexit likelier and likelier.

A few pictures taken in the afternoon of 28 June 2015 in Wimbledon Park. There is already a long queue for tickets to watch the tennis at Wimbledon.

I had an interesting tube journey a couple of weeks ago, when a woman with a whiff of craziness sat down next to me and proceeded to poke then talk to me.

On the eve of the UK general election, opinion polls point to a hung parliament, and a strong likelihood of a minority government. Will this lead to a game of chicken, or to a consensus politics? Interesting political times ahead.

Masatake Wasa (wasaweb) originally shared to Politics:
 
An idle speculation and thinking about some of the possible outcomes of the 2015 general election ...

There is one possible set of outcomes that will raise a number of important and acute constitutional and political questions. The scenario is as follows. The Conservatives win the most number of seats, ahead of Labour. Furthermore the Conservatives win an absolute majority in the constituencies in England (i.e. at least 267 seats), however fall short of an overall majority across the UK (the absolute majority would be 326 seats, but lower in practice and the Conservatives fall far short of that de facto number). There is no possible coalition that would give Mr Cameron a prospect of a majority, since the anti-Tory bloc of Labour, the SNP, Plaid Cymru, the Greens, etc, form a majority, and this anti-Tory bloc stands firm and would vote down motions of confidence and supply. In this case, Mr Miliband becomes the prime minister, most likely leading a minority government, as the anti-Tory bloc could and would vote for him for motions of confidence and supply in exchange for concessions.
With a few days to go until the polling day, there are many uncertainties about the outcome of the election. There could be a constitutional crisis, if there were to be an anti-Tory majority in the UK, but a Conservative absolute majority in England.

Will the current Greek crisis define a generation? | Thinking aloud

Generations are defined by the events that they have experienced and encountered. Will the current Greek crisis be such a defining moment?

Greece: the crisis continues (whether there is an agreement or not)
https://www.wasaweb.net/en/articles/art-cat-news/2015-06-24-Greece-crunch-time.html
Within the next few hours, the current act in the never-ending drama that is the Greek crisis will end, and a new act will follow. It is unclear how the current act ends therefore what the next act is going to be like. However, the crisis is nowhere near the end.

Finally pushing out a few articles that I had been procrastinating over for a while. The Blunders of Our Governments is a good book and very topical.
Notes on “The Blunders of Our Governmnets”, a book on British political blunders by Anthony King and Ivor Crewe.

Introduction
Welcome!

This is a Google+ page for the English version of wasaweb.net, and mainly distributes site updates by linking to the newly created pages on the site. I am hoping this Google+ page will serve as a place of communication, albeit subsidiary to the site.

The site is a personal collage, or an eclectic mixture of contents, varying from articles on news and current affairs to early modern history to photographs and snapshots. There are also stock images (cover photos, wallpapers) for non-commercial use. For more about me, please read this short bio.
