The Public Assets Department of the Greek Finance Ministry suspended the permission of beach use by famous Nammos restaurant and nightclub on the island of Mykonos. Reason for the suspension was that Nammos owners built a platform and a ramp for a concert in late August thus preventing public access to the beach. According to

The citizens of Germany will head to the polls this Sunday, in the last of a series of elections in major European countries this year. Before the voting began, there were fears that populist, anti-system parties could actually win in some cases, in the wake of the victory of last years Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States. That hasnt happened, as Marine Le Pen of the National Front was defeated in a run-off in France, and Geert Wilders Freedom Party failed to break through in Holland.
Germany is also expected to weather the populist storm, with Chancellor Angela Merkel set to be re-elected. Her Christian Democratic Party (CDU/CSU) now holds a comfortable lead over its main competitor, the Social Democrats (SPD), with the other opposition parties far behind. That will give Merkel, a reserved but effective politician who grew up in Communist East Germany, the chance to approach Helmut Kohls record as the countrys longest serving leader.
Due to the parliamentary system, which allows numerous smaller parties to send representatives to Berlin, neither of the large parties can win outright, which means that Merkel will need to form a coalition. Her preference would be to take on her partys historical ally, the Free Democrats, but it is possible she will be forced to continue with a grand coalition agreement between the CDU and SPD to share power in the name of stability, while keeping out the parties seen as more extreme.
The most feared of the smaller groupings is the Alternative for Germany (AfD), a populist party that has grown rapidly in recent years, drawing on economic and social discontent in the mold of other anti-system parties around Europe. The AfD is expected to draw slightly more than 10 percent of the vote, well below the totals for Marine Le Pen in France (21 percent in the first round) or the Five-Star Movement in Italy (25 percent in 2013), and closer to the level of Geert Wilders Freedom Party in Holland (13 percent in the March elections).
Nevertheless, the AfDs growth has caused consternation around Europe, as the governing elites struggle to explain why even in the country with the continents strongest economy, where unemployment is low, and productivity and budget surpluses are high, there has been a rapid increase in populist fervor
Was machen wir eigentlich, wenn die AfD gewinnt?

Lots and lots of commentators seem to be confused about Northern Ireland. No surprise there. The confusion seems to be around the post Brexit space. Again, no surprise there, its a mess wrapped in a confusion inside a conundrum. But, lets parse it. The problem is what to do with the border when it is no longer internal but becomes an external EU frontier. There are four layers to the relationship. All are, in principle, separable. These are
At various times over the last century each and every one of these has been abrogated, ceded, suspended or modified. Lets parse them
The common travel area is a visa-free mini-schengen. It is merely about allowing travel of persons. It has nothing to do with work, goods or services. Depending on the flight and air/port one can find oneself waved through and bypassing the UK border or have to go through it via immigration. The latter was the case for the vast majority of travellers regardless of port of departure during the height of the troubles. So an Irish Sea people border already exists. A good discussion on the legal underpinning this is here . This common travel area is what most people think of when they talk about freedom of movement across the border.
The issue of freedom of UK and Irish citizens to live and work in each others state is more complex. It is in essence enshrined in the UK law via the 1949 Ireland Act which states in effect that Irish citizens are not considered foreign in UK terms. This allows for Irish and UK citizens to be treated alike in the UK, for work and benefits. Now there is absolutely nothing to stop the UK government changing this. And it is not clear that the 1949 Act post brexit does copperfasten. The Irish analogue is the Aliens Act 1935 and subsequent amendments. Both of these were superseded by the Freedom of movement provisions of the EU. Again, there is nothing to stop the common travel area remaining and this set of provisions going post brexit. And these say nothing about trade in goods and services.
Then we get to the Free Trade and the Customs Union issues.
A free trade area is not a customs union but is a requirement for one. A good explainer on the distinction is here...

In this Berlin talk (June 2017) I elaborate on identitarian politics being a cancerous disaster at the core of our current dystopia. I delve into ID politics' intellectual and political roots: the New Left, cultural Marxism and the meaning of fascism. I also spoke about philosophy of history and German past in particular.

Die EU hat 2014 eine Studie anfertigen lassen, die herausfinden sollte, wieviel wirtschaftlicher Schaden durch Raubkopien entsteht.
Ergebnis der Studie: Bis auf Ausnahmen wie frisch erschienene Blockbuster? Keine.

Do you like John Coltrane? asks Gilad Atzmon with an ironic smile after he and his band The Orient House Ensemble have opened tonight with a beautiful cover of Duke Ellingtons In A Sentimental Mood, Atzmons clarinet soaring deliciously above the melody, like Coltranes in the original.
Describing tonight as Coltrane light this constantly touring sax supremo who the Guardian once described as the hardest-gigging man in British jazz and his excellent band pay homage to one of the greatest jazzmen of all time with The Spirit of Trane.
John Coltrane, who died 50 years ago, was the most influential tenor saxophonist in jazz history, and while the sonic power of his music can never be overlooked his experimentalism confused some jazz audiences back in the day. As Atzmon says, he once emptied a gig in London in just seven minutes. No chance of that tonight though, as this is over ten minutes into tonights set and the warmth and feel that this amusing, supremely gifted and controversial figure gives to Coltranes sound is infectious.
Atzmon is an exiled Israeli and political activist who has courted controversy with articles and books about the injustices in the Middle East, but his philosophy and music has always sought to surmount boundaries and barriers and encompass different cultures. His band are named after the former East Jerusalem HQ of the PLO, Orient House. Hes also played with many people outside the jazz lexicon such as Ian Dury & The Blockheads and Pink Floyd to name but two.
Amid the lovely renditions of Coltranes material tonight, Atzmons natural comic talent comes to the fore, whether its joking with his drummer the versatile Enzo Zirilli about Brexit or about his own prostate problems, and how the bass clarinet could come in handy as a stage toilet (!), his big character comes to the fore.
And speaking of big characters, the huge frame of double bassist Yaron Stavi, concentration etched on his features as he strolls the strings of his bass with feeling, is a delight. As are the quite astounding touches and flourishes of pianist Frank Harrison. This is a gifted, tight unit, whove been together for a long time and flow and comp...

Reporting from New York, John Pilger describes the re-writing of the history of the Vietnam War in the 10-part television series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Millions died "in good faith", they say. And so yet more wars are justified - as President Trump tells the world he is prepared to "totally destroy" North Korea and its 25 million people.
