Croatia: Sorry Prime Minister – There’s Nothing Sober About Communist Crimes

Like in some disturbingly teasing political oh-no-not-this-reality-show-again, Croatia’s Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic keeps showing us through his actions that he is out of touch with reality when it comes to duly acknowledging the serious divisions in society sprouting from the past totalitarian regimes and is alarmingly way off the mark when it comes to dealing […]

EC’s Donald Tusk’s Pep Talk Elates Croatian Parliament

European Council president’s, Donald Tusk’s Monday 16 January speech in the Croatian parliament celebrating 25 years since the international recognition of Croatia’s independence was a well-received congratulatory recitation of Croatia’s accomplishments with a succinct nudge as to future directions awaiting the country. The deepest political thrust of his speech, however, appears in his mention of […]

Homeland And Diaspora Equally Deserving For International Recognition of Independent Croatia

International recognition of Croatia’s independence is one of the most important events in Croatia’s history and Croatia with its diaspora celebrate that 15 January 1992 event every year and so too this year.

About Removing Liberty For Serbia On Croatian Soil

As Americans grow increasingly weary of involvement in messy overseas conflicts and espionage-flavoured intrigues, foreign dignitaries’ travel to US has in this transition time between two administrations grown increasingly more complicated —and potentially perilous to their political aggregate — as they try to show their foreign policy bona fides to America. For the foreign policy […]

Croatia: Riding Through Another Red Storm

  It’s normal for Croatian public news agency HINA to report on news from Serbia and from everywhere, but as far as I’m concerned it’s not normal for the same agency to report or purport to report as news to the Croatian public the opinion emanating with hatred and lies and other depravities against Croatia […]

Croatia: Teasers, Tinsel and Tassels For Christmas

Were I to put together Christmas messages and wishes from Croatia’s President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, from Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and from State Secretary head of government’s office for Croats living abroad Zvonko Milas, I would end up with a mangled and aloof heap of teasers, tinsels and tassels I couldn’t possibly reuse on next year’s […]

Croatia, Communist Crimes and Fidel Castro’s Death

  Cuba’s Fidel Castro, who died at the age of 90 on Saturday 26 November 2016, attracted divided views about him throughout his almost six decades in power in one form or another. Most saw him as a ruthless and murderous despot while others hailed him as a revolutionary hero. Of course the communists and […]

Croatia: Candles For The Unforgotten – 25 Years On

Friday 18 November 2016 more than a 120,000 people took part in the memorial march in the eastern Croatian town of Vukovar marking the 25th anniversary of the fall of Vukovar to the Serb-led Yugoslav army and Serb rebel forces on 18 November 1991 after a three-month siege and slaughter of Croats and ethnic cleansing […]

Croatia’s Tax Reform: More Not Paying Income Tax And Sugar Not As Sweet

  Croatia’s PM Andrej Plenkovic and finance minister Zdravko Maric unveiled Thursday 27 October 2016 the new government’s tax reforms they’ve been keeping under wraps for weeks. They say that the new tax system, encompassing tax reforms, the government is bringing in from 1 January 2017, will be simple and transparent and fairer. Well, as […]

Croatia: Double Standards Officialdom And Hotchpotch Government

  Croatian new Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic cannot be criticised for defending his right to choose his own ministers, the team he believes he can work with in order to achieve advancements in Croatia particularly for the sinking economy, which despite rosy harvests from the tourist industry in summers threatens to bankrupt the country. He […]

We live in times when more often than not we find ourselves among the ever increasing number of people that are dissatisfied with the make-up of their government cabinet or choice of ministers.
