International Politics

With the announced departure of Bishop Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to become the Master at the renowned University of Cambridge, the Ugandan born Archbishop of York has assumed the front runner status. People are asking can Black John Sentamu be appointed Archbishop of Canterbury. My immediate answer would be “yes” “why not.” This answer would have been my final answer except that the most important issue in his appointment would not be the color of his skin; in fact that would not be a factor at all. The issues would most likely be: His nationality. He was born…

Bankerster Coup d’etat

Written by
“The ascension of Mario Monti to the Italian prime ministership is remarkable for more reasons than it is possible to count. By replacing the scandal-surfing Silvio Berlusconi, Italy has dislodged the undislodgeable. By imposing rule by unelected technocrats, it has suspended the normal rules of democracy, and maybe democracy itself. And by putting a senior adviser at Goldman Sachs in charge of a Western nation, it has taken to new heights the political power of an investment bank that you might have thought was prohibitively politically toxic.” What price the new democracy? Goldman Sachs conquers Europe www.independent.co.uk/news/business With all the…

The Spanish Crisis from an Immigrant point of view

Written by
Spain, to my own view as an immigrant living here for the past one decade, is specially created by God as the Galilee for the the world people to see and feel the beauty of nature. This natural endowment makes the country, one of the greatest travel destination in the world with its largest number of world heritage cities surrounded by outstanding beaches on the coastline. It is the second most visted country in the world, with more than fifty million tourists visit annually. A land full of opportunities for all and sundry. The country is blessed with rich cultures…

The evolutionary ideas for European Union were first conceived after the end of the devastating 2nd World War. The initial plan was to end the frequent and bloody wars and conflicts between European neighbors. Six countries were often credited as the original founding members, including Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. In 1957, the Treaty of Rome was signed leading to the creation of the European Economic Community (EEC). The formation of the European Common Market was completed after the end of the Soviet Union and the crumbling of the Berlin Wall. Two Treaties were signed during the…

Child labour and population explosion

Written by
So many talk shops have been going on child labour, population explosion and family related matters calling for serious attention before they go weird. It is really a troublesome topic to discuss because many people have faced it with myopic perceptions while others have gone too sentimental about the whole matter. Child labour is a universal phenomenon especially in underdeveloped countries, Nigeria inclusive. But I continue to wriggle in pains whenever I think about Nigeria finding it very difficult to develop amidst too much wealth and health. With such bounties bestowed on Nigeria by the Incomprehensible Almighty, I cannot find…

No Tears for Ghadaffi

Written by
Much ado have been made in the commentator and foreign policy circles in recent weeks about the speed of the ultimate ouster of the mad man of Tripoli, Colonel Ghadaffi. While many tears have been shed in the elite minded circles of his friends, admirers and benefactors, no one among the common people who suffered the sheer arrogance of his power and despotic rule for 42 years seem to be shedding any; neither am I. Ghadaffi was a personification of everything wrong with African leadership that has seen the continent retrogress in 40 years. A combination of greed, arrogance of…
