So it seems the Germans were not the only "Nazis"

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisf...strophe-europe

Quote:
Over the gates of Auschwitz were the words "Work Makes You Free". Over the gates of the Solovetsky camp in Lenin's gulag: "Through Labour – Freedom!". Over the gates of the Ngenya detention camp, run by the British in Kenya: "Labour and Freedom". Dehumanisation appears to follow an almost inexorable course.

Last week three elderly Kenyans established the right to sue the British government for the torture that they suffered – castration, beating and rape – in the Kikuyu detention camps it ran in the 1950s.

Many tens of thousands were detained and tortured in the camps. I won't spare you the details: we have been sparing ourselves the details for far too long. Large numbers of men were castrated with pliers. Others were raped, sometimes with the use of knives, broken bottles, rifle barrels and scorpions. Women had similar instruments forced into their vaginas. The guards and officials sliced off ears and fingers, gouged out eyes, mutilated women's breasts with pliers, poured paraffin over people and set them alight. Untold thousands died.

The government's secret archive, revealed this April, shows that the attorney general, the colonial governor and the colonial secretary knew what was happening. The governor ensured that the perpetrators had legal immunity: including the British officers reported to him for roasting prisoners to death. In public the colonial secretary lied and kept lying.

Of course not, all empires were at it, and I'm sure this is only the tip of the iceberg. How the British government could try to claim that the responsibility had passed to the Kenyan government.

That's the best Clio ever produced, IMO. Still a very good car.

Why not? It's a bit far, but not that far. And Clio's are fairly reliable. I know as I deliver parts to the Cleon, France factory.

Renault Clio is a good car for how much it costs. Here are some of my trips done by me in my Clio.

I don't think I'll ever buy a motorcycle. Not comfortable for long trips, no space to take something with you and it's statistically freaking dangerous. You always have to look out for other drivers because there's nothing to protect you.

Yes. Google street view cars from Romania usually have German or Greek license plates.

And btw... on the left side you can see "Banca Carpatica" (a Romanian bank).

I'd say long trips taken by such vehicle, which is possible to carry quite little luggage and forces to many stops may be much more interesting than those taken by car, which makes almost no limits at above mentioned cases. I actually think about some nice route to do in May next year - maybe to Salzburg, which seems to be really worth visiting city.

This one allows calm driving, cause it's only 125. I could do A, or actually A2 driving license, but finally I decided to buy something decent possible to drive with A1. 140 km/h is its top. And I wouldn't say that fact that it's motorcycle makes some dangers, we don't have accidents every day. And finally its habitat - city, there it's much better than every car.

I hadn't any doubt about place on that photo, just Greek plate on such car suprised me.

Daewoo Matiz on the background seems to have Romanian plate.
