Austria's Kurz steps down - part of an EU purge of dissidents?

Reuters has a report about it

Kurz led one of the less anti-Russian governments in the EU and the scandal which brought him down - though as is often the case almost certainly factually based - looks to me to have been planted in order to bring him down. Note that it was his coalition partner the Greens, who are like Greens everywhere in Europe strongly pro-EU, who who led the attack on him.

To put it simply, I think what we are seeing is a systematic clear-out of 'unreliable' EU leaders, 'unreliable' in the eyes of the Euro-Atlanticist leadership that is. We are seeing an increasing attack on Orban in Hungary and on the Polish government, and Kurz - who is possibly perceived as a potential ally of Orban's and the Poles', at least on some issues - therefore had to be shunted out. So why not publish.a scandal to get rid of it.

As to why this purge of 'unreliable' leaders is now underway, I suspect that it is connected with Angela Merkel's imminent departure from the scene. Whilst she was around she could be relied upon to keep them under control. With her gone clearing the decks of unreliable elements becomes more of a priority.

Having said that, Kurz for the moment looks down rather than out, and it may be that he will be able to claw his way back, though I wouldn't count on it

Not sure how many are subscribed to this young lady's channel but it is so very interesting. I have been watching for about a year and I always learn something new in her videos.

She travels China on her moped/motorbike deep into the rural areas. The scenery is breathtaking but it also dispels a lot of the silly propaganda in the west about what life is like in China. But too many in the west refuse to break free from their programming. It's very educational especially for those of us who have never been to China. Only makes me want to go even more.

There will be no ‘Ukrainization’ of Georgia – PM

Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Kobakhidze has vowed to resist pressure from political forces that seek to “Ukrainize” the country, insisting that his government will not allow that to happen.

”I can assure representatives of the National Movement that the Ukrainian scenario will not take hold in Georgia, that the Ukrainization of Georgia will not happen under any circumstances. We shall put maximum effort into preventing that,” he told journalists, after meeting Georgian ambassadors and other Foreign Ministry officials in Berlin. - RT

My Fellow Duranianss.
