Day 3

The irreplaceable City AM has a map of its fantasy world today, showing a parallel universe Europe (you know, the one in which the only possible solution to world’s financial crisis is more deregulation and tax cuts for the rich)

It looks almost like our own, except a few changes:

– Hungary is called Slovakia
– Czechoslovakia is still one nation
– So is most of Yugoslavia, except for Slovenia
– On the other hand, Wales and Scotland split from UK
– Poland finally annexed Kaliningrad Oblast’
– All small countries like Andorra have been incorporated into their neighbours

In unrelated news, readers of City AM prefer to live in Singapore or Hong Kong rather than Sweden or Denmark. No wonder they don’t like Europe, they can’t find anything here!
