Putin on US administration: 'It’s difficult to talk with people who confuse Austria and Australia' by Teskje in europe

[–]Teskje[S] 23 points24 points  (0 children)

*Vladimir Putin has mocked the state of US politics by joking that it is "difficult to have a dialogue with people who confuse Austria and Australia".

"There is nothing to do about it. Apparently that’s the level of political culture of a certain part of the American establishment," the Russian President said, according to state funded broadcaster, RT.

Americans are a great people if they can endure so many people with such a low level of political culture,' Russian president says.

Mr Putin was referring to a 2007 gaffe by former US President George W Bush, when he thanked then-Australian leader John Howard for visiting Austrian troops in Iraq.

Mr Bush also mixed up the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum with the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) during a speech to business leaders in Sydney.

Speaking at a news conference, Mr Putin refrained from making any criticism of current President Donald Trump. He dismissed a question about whether Mr Trump was "naive."

Instead he said Mr Trump was "not my bride, and I'm not his groom."

Asked how Russia would feel if Mr Trump were impeached, Putin said it would be "absolutely wrong" for Russia to discuss domestic US politics.

Russian officials cheered Mr Trump when he was elected last year, and Mr Putin praised him as someone who wanted to improve ties with his country.

However, further US sanctions on Russia and the US decision to close the Russian consulate in San Francisco have raised concerns that the two countries remain far apart.

Queensferry Crossing. The tallest bridge in the UK built in Scotland, linking Lothian and Fife. by Teskje in europe

[–]Teskje[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You.. uh, because... uhh. Good point actually. Seems rather silly now, doesn't it?

I assumed that the other two bridges would be knocked down but the article says "The old one will remain open for cyclists, pedestrians and buses."

The Queen has officially opened the new Queensferry Crossing.

She was accompanied by Prince Philip as she cut the ribbon on the £1.35bn road bridge - exactly 53 years after she opened the Forth Road Bridge.

The Queen said the structure, the UK's tallest bridge, was a "breathtaking sight" and one of three "magnificent structures" across the Forth.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said people would "marvel" at the bridge in 100 years.

The Queen met children and officials at the south end of the bridge and was given a floral posy by Elizabeth Martin, grand-daughter of crossing project director Michael Martin.

I can see why the Dutch would feel that way, I think some people in London feel the same but maybe to a lesser degree. I try my best to be respectful of the city and the people and it saddens me when I see tourists being overly laddish or obnoxious (I noticed a lot of this in the Red Light District last night from a group of Yanks). It's a shame but you will always get groups of twats in every city:/ . My Dutch friends have recommended that I try Rotterdam, Haarlem and Utrecht so I think I'll visit them. I'm returning to the Netherlands next year so I'm sure I'll fit it all in.

No, not really. I live in London so I am quite used to lots of tourists. I can see how tourists are annoying, especially tourists with no respect for the city or culture, but generally I have mostly positive interactions with tourists.

Do you live in Amsterdam? Is there anything about the city you dislike a lot?
