= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Boris Johnson has put himself on a fresh collision course with David Cameron by criticising the Prime Minister's position on the eurozone crisis. The outspoken Mayor of London dismissed suggestions that building a "big bazooka" bailout fund and closer fiscal union between the 17 member states would resolve Europe's economic turmoil, it was reported. Instead, he claimed, the options were more likely to "exacerbate the problem". Mr Cameron called for a "big bazooka" injection of cash in October to shore up the single currency amid warnings that it was on the brink of collapse.

On this site visitors will find a complete version of the book "Alpine Wildflowers of Glacier National Park, Montana, and Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta" by Jerry DeSanto.

DeSanto was a former Glacier National Park ranger whose intention in this work was "to record personal observations together with information from the listed sources to present a complete and accurate picture of the flowering plants of Glacier, Waterton and the surrounding area." Visitors can look through the book at their leisure or search through the entire work via a helpful search engine. The photos in the book are exquisite, and even a few glances may make even the casual visitor want to visit Glacier National Park. Visit this site.

15 Immigration: Plea from a Reader in England
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

I have long argued, on behalf of the millions of us who have every right to live here, that Britain does not have an open-door or even a revolving-door policy to control immigration but no door at all. Well, it now seems we have taken down the windows and walls as well and put out a mile-wide mat with Welcome written on it in every known language. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

"India: A Portrait" ~ by Patrick French

One of this century's greatest surprises has been the economic and social revolution in India. A country long characterized by such adjectives as 'timeless', 'spiritual' and 'backward' is now viewed through a new set of cliches: 'hi-tech', 'materialistic', 'go-getting'. But what is the real nature of this rapid change, and what are its roots?

Patrick French has spent much of his life engaged with India, and his landmark new book is filled with the qualities that have won his writing exceptional praise: his love of narrative, sympathy for the individual's experience, scepticism about official claims, and relish for the mayhem of political life. Visit the Delamere International Bookshop.
