記事列挙

だー、もう記事多すぎ。本日の記事列挙、英国編。全部で6件。

インディペンデントの記事は1週間で閲覧有料になるので、あとで読みたい場合はローカルに保存しておくのがよいかもしれません。

1)イスラエルでジェイムズ・ミラー殺害事件で殺害した兵士に懲罰なしとの判断。英国政府はイスラエル政府に抗議
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/4444781.stm
http://news.independent.co.uk/world/middle_east/story.jsp?story=629505

2)LibDem「第三の道」
Lib Dems' manifesto signals a third way
http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/politics/story.jsp?story=6295143)「ヴードゥー経済学」ならぬ「バジル・フォルティ経済学」
Tories are accused of 'Basil Fawlty' economics by Blair
http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/politics/story.jsp?story=629537
"Basil Fawlty" economicsは、「フォルティ・タワーズ」(ジョン・クリーズがモンティ・パイソンのあとにやったコメディ)を参照。バジル・フォルティさんは常に「あれもこれも」の状態で最後に破綻する。

4)BBCのNewsnight、不評だった天気予報コーナーをやめる
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/newsnight/4445577.stm
先日、旧ユーゴの特集のときに久しぶりにNewsnightを初めから終わりまでオンラインで見て、何か天気予報コーナーできてるし、しかもキャスターが何かごにょごにょ言ってるし、と思ってたんですが、このお天気コーナー、視聴者には極めて不評だったようで、来週から廃止。元の株式市況に戻るそうです。

5)イタリア、連立政権からキリスト教民主連合が離脱
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4448313.stm
先日の地方選で与党が大敗したことを受けて。This could be another "spanish" surprise? (記事では、BBCが珍しく、バカっぽくないベルたんの写真を使用!)

蛇足:
NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!
Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear... fear and surprise....
Our two weapons are fear and surprise... and ruthless efficiency....
-- Spanish Inquisition!


Darn, I think I had six or seven stories to take a note of, but five?

あ、もう1つ出てきた。

6)the Inquiries Act 2005
Finucane widow urges judges to shun inquiry

Pat Finucane殺害事件のインクワイアリを求めているMrs Finucaneが判事全員に書状、ということだが、中身がびっくり。
Lord Saville, who chaired the Bloody Sunday inquiry, has criticised the Inquiries Act 2005, which allows ministers to issue notices stopping certain evidence from being given in public and restricting publication in the public interest.

何だこの、the Inquiries Act 2005って?

次もメモしておく。
The Canadian judge Peter Cory was appointed by the British and Irish governments to investigate allegations of collusion in Mr Finucane's murder. He concluded in 2003 that there was "strong evidence that collusive acts were committed" by the army, the Royal Ulster Constabulary and the security service, and that a public inquiry was needed.
_
A British government official told the UN Commission for Human Rights in Geneva last week that a public inquiry would be held into Mr Finucane's murder, but that most witnesses would give evidence in private.
_
However, Judge Cory told the US Congressional hearings into human rights in Northern Ireland last month, before the act became law: "It seems to me that the proposed new act would make a meaningful inquiry impossible. The minister, the actions of whose ministry was to be reviewed by the public inquiry, would have the authority to thwart the efforts of the inquiry at every step.
_
"It really creates an intolerable Alice in Wonderland situation. There have been references in the press to an international judicial membership in the inquiry.
_
"If the new act were to be come law, I would advise all Canadian judges to decline an appointment in light of the impossible situation they would be facing. In fact, I cannot contemplate any self-respecting Canadian judge accepting an appointment to an inquiry constituted under the new proposed act," he said.
