France faces an ongoing national strike against the government’s pensions reform after the French prime minister announced on 16 March 2023 the use of Article 49 paragraph 3 (49.3) of the French Constitution to have the text on the controversial pension reform law – raising the retirement age from 62 to 64 – be definitively adopted without a vote.

Montenegrin football fans supporting Montenegro gather prior to the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying match against Serbia on March 27, 2023, in Podgorica, Montenegro. A flag depicting Krsto Popovic, an officer of the Montenegrin Army during the First World War and a collaborator of fascist Italian occupation forces during the Second World War. Montenegrin football fans are divided between Montenegrin patriots and Serb nationalists. Montenegrin president Milo Dukanovic dissolved the Parliament on March 16 and called for elections as the ruling parliamentarian majority failed to form a government. Pro-EU candidate Milo Dukanovic, in power as president or prime minister since 1991, will face Jakov Milatovic, who is seen as a candidate with close ties with the Serbian Orthodox Church. Both candidates vow to integrate the NATO country into the European Union, but the political stalemate has stalled its path toward accession. (Photo by Pierre Crom/Getty Images)

    Re the mass shooting at the US school, why do these crazy folk do it? Surely all schools now have sufficient security to keep the perpetrators out?

    • Johann Olivier says:

      Nope. Almost impossible. This shooter blew a hole through a secure door & killed the custodian on the way in. Soft targets, especially for determined nutcases carrying assault rifles. But then, the elected lunatics keep voting for guns-for-all-at-any time. North Carolina’s legislature overrides a governor’s veto to allow handguns to be purchased like candy bars. Vote for idiots and idiotic outcomes follow. It is somewhat annoying when everyone is aghast at these horror shows when they voted the morons in.

  • charlesbotha says:

    Long ago, before the shootings started and I was still a young man, I visited the USA for the 1st time. I had to show my passport that I was over 21 to have a beer with my dinner at a restaurant. But across the street I could go and buy automatic weapons with no questions asked! Now the chickens have come to roost with the strong Republican Party gun lobby…
