^ Yep, as always, in remote areas they indeed think about the progress for no corruption could take place there. It's all about the sizes, with more money things become more complicated..!

My experience shows that in remote areas there is not less corruption, there is just less interest from "big guys" and there is left place also for positive changes.

Latvia will have massive positive changes after elections this autumn.

Big boys will sell/privatize/give away for free all the state enterprises - I suspect, including infrastructure. Valuable infrastructure will be owned by private "investors" and most likely will be tolled.

Latvijas Meži (National Forests) will be one of the first things given to lower the national debt.

All this and many more "improvements" will give Latvia a chance to become truly fascistalistic - just like USA - where private interests and government has grow into one large parasitic organism.

Everything will get even better, when Latvia will give away its sovereignty to private bank (European Central Bank) completely by adapting EUR.

^ Yeah, right, Nomels, you know it better than we do, sure, just no doubts about your said.. Hopefully such malicious persons are already for many years far away from their motherhood and they just don't receive any positive news from the country they left thinking only about their own's comfort as this could only make them more mischievous with the progress being achieved in where from they run away like cowards!

Here are great news for sheeple.
======
Political parties' offices in addition to their programs and advertising this year, shared a variety of sweets. It "Unity" office visitors are offered green cotton-candy, while in "For the good Latvia" (PLL) HQ you can get ice cream, today writes "The Independent".
*
*
PLL ice creams are given only to Riga office visitors, and "Unity" with cotton-candy is traveling around Latvia.
--
A green cotton-candy is given to all interested parties - both the office visitors and in city celebrations, and other public events to be attended "Unity". These days cotton-candy in Unity office is not available, because it travels around Latvian regions. However beautiful, green apples and coffee is always available in out office" says the relations manager of " Unity " party Gunda Reirs.
--
Similar initiatives have taken place even before other elections. Last year before the Riga City Council elections, the energy drink was accompanied by Ainars Slesers energy, while a few years ago Joachim Zīgerists publicly was giving away bananas.

^ Say, a perfect thread to share dirty political manipulations?! What for are you doing it, Nomels? You want to prove something, invite someone to join your evil-minded carping?

Some good stuff about the level in corruption in Latvia now.
http://www.lenta.ru/articles/2010/07/30/back/

Quote:
Сейчас страны Прибалтики платят за российское топливо самые высокие цены в ЕС. Так, Эстония закупала газ у России в первом квартале по 318,2 доллара за тысячу кубометров. При этом "Газпром" продавал газ в Европу в среднем по 265-270 долларов за аналогичный объем. Цена природного газа в Литве на 100-150 долларов выше цен на газ в Западной Европе, отмечает газета "Коммерсант".

Стоит отметить, что Эстония и Литва страдают от высоких цен на газ гораздо меньше Латвии, которая уже полгода пытается получить от "Газпрома" скидку на топливо. В январе 2010 года министр экономики Латвии Артис Кампарс заявил, что для его страны невыгодна текущая цена на российский газ, и предложил пересмотреть газовый контракт с Россией. Согласно данным Eurostat, в 2009 году Латвия платила за газ в среднем на 24 процента больше Литвы и на 32 процента больше Эстонии. При этом Рига, в отличие от соседей, о национализации трубы пока не заикается.
All the people who should secure this extreme price of gas, have been purchased by Gazprom. Every initiative to develop alternate energy sources is silently and not so silently blocked here.
Wind energy permits? There are quotas, Šķēle buys them all and does nothing. Alternative gas supply terminal in Mangalsala to get gas from Qatar? Through Lembergs there are directly financed greens who exactly here find exceptional natural values and project is thrown out of city plans.

EU is interested in no one living in Latvia. Very likely there will be only dormice living in Latvia. (a quote from a businessman)

Listen dumbass, why would EU care about Latvia if even Latvians don't? EU is not gonna ship factories here and try to save Latvia while Latvians are robbing and destroying this country. What do you want? Soviet Union ended a long time ago. People like you still have this expectation that somebody above us will do everything for us and our lives will be good. If Latvians want something, we need to work and fight for it. If we won't, why the hell should EU fight for us? You think they got nothing better to do? Losers like you and corrupt officials is why Latvia is in trouble.

wow. very well said. Bravo. EU can guide assist if we want, but the job we need to do ourselves., They cant build and ship as the factories as you told. People really expect too much from everybody around, and not enough from themselves.

Why would anybody care what Juris Savickis has to say? Latvians pay more for gas than almost anybody in Europe. And why? Because Savickis is putting the difference in his pocket, and killing any development of alternative energy at the same time. And he supports PLL (Tautas Partija)? The people who have destroyed this country? Latvia has no middle class, our economy per capita is the same as it was during the Soviet Union. The only difference is that people like Savickis and Skele are millionaires now. Gee, what a shock that he supports them

And he also thinks USA and EU are so bad that they want all Latvians to move out? Oh, and NATO wants to build a base here. How terrible. I'm sure his friends in Russia hate it very much and they tell him that at "Novaja Volna" all the time. He thinks we should move away from the west towards Russia and he also makes his money from Russian Gazprom What a shocking connection. So if we did what he wants, who would live here? Only Russians. Or wait, Russia would never do that, right? EU, NATO, and USA are the bad ones

ps. We don't need your stupid gas Savicki. We'd be much better of with geothermal heat pumps and small wind generators/solar panels on every home.

Perfect thread to bash the goverment and at the same time doing absolutely nothing to improve the general situation.. Each of us is fully responsible for the prosperity of its country. A state is formed out of people and only, and what is being done is done for people (unfortunately some forget this value) who live there. So, just act, not sit and complain, but work for the boon of what you call your motherhood!

^ Whatever..
Just heard that famous Latvian cross-bike rider Vinters has invested 1.5 million Lats into a new biogas power plant. Hope they would be successful with such eco-friendly plant because that's the correct way for a green country strategy development!

Egg producer "Balticovo" (Iecava, some 40 km south from Riga) plans to extend export through "Marks&Spencer" and "Tesco" supermarket chains, as well as aggressive marketing in Sweden and Germany - although they recognize that it is very hard due to high level of protectionism. Especially hard in this respect is Poland - but they say that they will get there anyway.
Balticovo invests 2 mio EUR in new production facility for melange - eggs without shell.

This is international forum and agreed order here - and a possibility to inform others.
(And it's not bad to know some more languages besides the native)
