Pengovsky is still clearing his backlog, so a serious new post will have to wait a day or two more. However, you should know that shit in Slovenia hit the fan with the prime minister being accused of taking a huge bribe in and arms deal (suprise, surprise) with Finland-based Patria Vehicles. To cut a long story short, Slovenia is buying a number Finnish APCs and not everbody is happy. Defence minister Karel Erjavec has so far shown many teflon-like qualities, deflecting shit thrown at him by playing dumb, ignorant or sarcastic (or any combination of the three).
The story of Slovene PM Janša being bribed, however, was broken by a programme on Finnish state television. Janša and indeed most of the top levels of government went apeshit, forgot that Finland is not Slovenia and demanded that Finnish state TV run another programe, detailing the Slovene government’s version of events. The Finns obviously told my government to go fuck itself (perhaps not in such a colourful langugage, but hey – I don’t speak Finnish :)) and stood by its programe.
So instead Janša went to the competition in Finland. Tonight, Nelonen TV runs an interview with Janez Janša. It is all very sombre, right until the very end where something strange happens.
And then one starts to wonder what kind of an interview this was. Aha! A clue, Sherlock!.
But this is just to keep you amused while I get back on track. In the mean time someone get the man his breathing mask and a light sabre…
