Just when you thought there is nothing that can surprise you anymore in this country, comes this. LNT’s “DegpunktÃ„Â” reports that Valmiera state prison had four special guards dogs shot as part of the “economy regime”. Apparently, the guards couldn’t bring themselves to do that so they called in an outsider and gave him a gun. I wonder if that’s the kind of measures that Mr Slakteris, the minister of finance, meant when he famously told the Bloomberg TV that “we will be …taupÃ„Â«gi [economical].”
Ryanair’s chief executive caused howls of protest today when he suggested that the airline may charge passengers Ã‚Â£1 to use its toilets.
