Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The exile is back

Or rather the exiled: And they're pissed. If you believe them, and you certainly don't have to, they're in Panama.

Previously on Eurotrib...

  1.  Well... I'm going to give them some time to regroup and get their act together.  They've been through a lot in the last few weeks.  So the fact that the new site is like, er, EnglishRussia, but with more commentary and no comments, is something I will defer my disappointment about.  

  2.  Panama.  Part of me hopes that's true.  I mean, could be interesting.  Suppose they won't be doing any more Moscow nightclub reviews.

  3.  Weirdly, despite their claim of switching from Russia-centric news to America-centric news (which would make more sense than Panamanian news, because I think America really is just on the verge of morphing into Russia circa 1998, and I'm not trying to be funny now.  It's true.) they're still looking pretty darn Russia-centric to me.

  4.  The story about them being banned would be cooler if it were true.   Maybe it is?   I can't find any evidence of it.  But that would be just like the Russian government, to do it all sneaky-like spy-style and leave no tracks, frame the fleeing investors for their nefarious behavior.  Still, fleeing investors is not as interesting as being banned.

I was so ready to be wrong about all of this.  I love the eXile!  I want to be wrong!  sniff...
