The Forgotten Eastern Europe
Here's a great travel piece from the Spectator by John Laughland on the little known Eastern European country Ladronia . I was there myself in the mid 1990s, when the country was a 'pariah' state merely for voting in the wrong government. Now that the West has got his way in last year's 'velcro revolution', we can expect the usual pattern: privatisation, NATO air bases and impoverishment for the many. But politics apart, it's still a great place to visit.
