In all honesty, it is a bit self-serving to try and look at Russian war against Ukraine through the lens of Muddy Hollows and its political cesspool. But seeing as this is an utterly self-serving blog, pengovsky will go right ahead. PM Janša, on the other hand, will stay put, as the Russian aggression preempted his photo-op in Kyiv planned for today.
This, incidentally, should make the Glorious Leader available for a court-date in a defamation case against him. But he’ll probably claim an emergency NatSec Council meeting or something like that. And for once, he may not be lying through his teeth to get out of a court date.
President Pahor dropped his hankie last Wednesday and called the 2022 parliamentary election in Muddy Hollows. The date of the vote is set for April 24, the first possible date in a six-week period. This means that the rubber now finally meets the road and the mad dash for the finish line begins.
This also means that The Prez was not under pressure to backtrack on his earlier commitments to this date. Or, to be more precise, this meas that the Glorious Leader is just fine with the date. The only one who was making noises on this was nationalist party leader and a walking business project, Zmago Jelinčič.
It so happened during one of the more spectacular exercises in rearranging urban furniture last October, that the cops let loose and gassed and water-bombed the entire Ljubljana city centre, non-protesting civilians included. Former Speaker Pavle Gantar tweet in response that “the city is full of gangs of citizens tear-gassing and hosing down innocent people”. Somehow this made Chief of Police Anton Olaj very unhappy.
As a result, the Big Cop filed charges against Gantar. Supposedly because the latter disrespected the men and women in uniform. And earlier this week, Gantar tweeted that he was fined to the tune of 250 EUR. The fine cited violations of Paragraph 1 of Article 6 of the Public Order Act. Then irony went home and died in agony.
