Happy 2020 from Latvia

2020 here in Latvia and Latvia is facing multiple problems ranging from:

Overly high taxation leading to high tax avoidance and depopulation
Split community - leading to exploitable gaps by Russia
Lack of high paid rural work leading to further widespread rural depopulation leading to a NATO nightmare
An outright drug dependency on EU cash for high profile low return projects - such as Railbaltica
A downright stupid vision that they have Western values and therefore the West should not only protect them - but - pay to protect them.
Totally corrupt politicians aided by a population who are happy to that 30 years is not enough to fix the Soviet regime of 45 years... we need more time.

Time to move on.

Seems apt:


And what for NATO where we have dysfunctional MS such as Latvia and Turkey?
2020 - the year and the decade will be challenging and the winds of war swirl in the Gulf, China rising and Russia curling for a needy strike.

The 2020s will interesting times for a split Britain too.
 
Christ - it is like Victory Day in Europe or the bombing of Rotterdam - no peace for the wicked here.

I am totally chill. fxcked up with cold, but, the fireworks over in this new neck of the woods was quite impressive. Given it started at 23:00 - Russian New Year, and continued for almost 2 hours, there is no reason I should be worried - Russians like to party, after all.

I work with a Latvian Russian, bearded orthodox, unmarried with kid, Stalin fanboy, and an enthusiastic capitalist. Bewildering.
