To make the exiting atmosphere bearable we played Bohemian rhapsody another night with my colleague Jānis Bērziņš from Riga Stradiņš University. Two weeks ago I promised you to translate the speech of one of the most prominent Saeima demagogues, Mr Juris Dobelis (it is translated now:). Out of sheer interest we checked the address - http://www.cvk.lv/cgi-bin/wdbcgiw/base/saeima9.GalRezS9.vis - and made sure educational background and financial situation of the aforementioned Latvian MP.
And what did the official declaration reveal - aye, the wellknown demagogue is pennyless!
Because Latvia still does not have mandatory property and tax declaration system, the Latvian Internal Revenue Service actually does not have neither system nor manpower to realize who owns what in Wonderlatvia. If you are interested to learn about financial background of Latvian politicians you may go to the following address -
After reaching this address just click on the party name and then there shall be names of MP's. Continue clicking on them so you could learn about officially declared wealth of Latvian MP's.
P.S. Latvian Radio morning news just announced that the PM asked the resigned Minister of Welfare Ms Dagnija Staķe if she could still reconsider her decision to resign....the vicious circle of existing government continues...
