Without wanting to sound too much like Donald Rumsfeld, there are some things I know that I know nothing about, and I put US politics in that bracket. This blog has categories for European and UK politics for a reason. I don’t know the relative importance of New Hampshire or Illinois, and I cannot tell you which states form Super Tuesday. I’m not even a fan of West Wing, so I cannot even sound like I know what’s going on. Please don’t interpret this as being anti-American – I just don’t know enough, that’s it. I’m not even going to get drawn on whether Hillary or Barack is a better bet for the Democrats. I even find myself (astoundingly) partially in agreement with Guido about the rather ludicrous amount of UK media coverage of the primaries, although the newspapers are as much to blame as well. The only thing I might get drawn on is how the candidates use the internet – oh for a British politician who did anything as slick as Barack Obama’s site. But c’est tout.

Sorry @bahnfueralle und @tagesschau - das ist komplette Schwachsinn. Ja, es gibt in Deutschland Probleme. Aber Dänemark und Luxembourg auf Platz 1? Habt ihr die Zulassungsproblemen in Dänemark überhaupt nicht gesehen? #CrossBorderRail
Deutschland bremst Europas Bahnen aus http://www.tagesschau.de/investigativ/swr/bahn-infrastruktur-105.html #Investigativ #Bahn #DeutscheBahn #Infrastruktur
Denmark and Luxembourg as leaders when it comes to European railways? In terms of narrow interpretation of some standards, perhaps. But that means you’re asking the questions too narrowly in my view...
