But when I see your cartoon, I cannot think they respect red light in Romania. Because you block a street.

Mestre is just a big industrial area, there's nothing interesting to see (almost nothing )

A clear sign of democracy, or one of the most absurd things of the world?
A plebiscit was organized about Margitsziget (an island of the Danube in Budapest, check the map). Three (3) inhabitants may vote.
Two of them have already voted, the vote counter officials are now waiting for the third person - or till 7PM, when the voting will be closed any way.
HERE are the officials (almost twice as more as the voters).
HERE are two voters (mother and son).

In Hungary participation in plebiscites is not mandatory, and usually only 40-50% of the eligible people participate. In this current case participation will be at least 66.7% :-)

No. Actually the want nothing :-)
The island was a part of the 13. district of Budapest (Angyalföld). Some months ago a new law took it from Angyalföld and placed directly under the control of Budapest.
The mayor of the disctrict objected, and organized a plebiscite which is held today.

Quiet as hell here, and suddenly they show up at once. Rudely awakened in my little sleep, like a party of Polish truck drivers gathering together on the ferry just when I'm about to get some shut eye...

Someone tried this joke already a couple of years ago.
