Now be fair every week she is in the news. Because every week Yulia has to expel another member of her parliamentary block. Everyone on the block votes for the expulsion. And everyone except Yulia is desperately

negotiating with other parties. They all want to escape before they are expelled. Its like the French revolution minus the violence and historical importance. I wonder if Yulia has knitted the names of her enemies onto a scarf?
