A pigeon that travelled across the Pacific Ocean is to be put down after running afoul of Australia's strict quarantine rules.

The bird reportedly went missing during a race in the US state of Oregon in late October, before turning up in Melbourne almost two months later.

But officials say the pigeon, which has been named Joe, poses a "direct biosecurity risk"

Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for "an open world economy" in an address to the World Economic Forum, saying that excellence rather than "wrestling" should be driving global prosperity.

In a virtual gathering instead of the annual in-person meetings at the Switzerland ski resort of Davos, Mr Xi urged nations to remove all barriers to trade.

"We should build an open world economy Ö discard discriminatory and exclusionary standards, rules and systems, and take down barriers to trade, investment and technological exchanges," Mr Xi said in a 25-minute speech.

"We should advocate fair competition, like competing with each other for excellence in a racing field, not beating each other on a wrestling arena.

"To engage in cliques, a new Cold War, exclusion, threats and intimidation against others, to warn of decoupling, cutting off supplies, sanctions at every turn Ö can only drive the world to division and even conflict.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-01-26/xi-jinping-calls-for-open-world-econony-coronavirus-fight-davos/13090730

Fucking ironic coming from this guy. China has been implementing tariffs and trade bans on Australian goods for the past 12 months in retaliation for Australia backing calls for an independent WHO investigation into the origins of COVID-19.

And for him to speak about threats and intimidation with a straight face? What a cunt.

That dude is buying from ckmodels.de, I guarantee it. If he thinks buying mass produced 1/18ths is hard, he should step into my world. Nobody is being hit harder by Brexit than me, it's a wonder I can get out of bed in the morning.

(To be honest, I suspect Brexit might cost me my job this year, but given that we're in the midst of the apocalypse, I'm not terribly bothered).

Maori MP ejected from NZ parliament for refusing to wear tie

A leader of the Maori Party has been ejected from the New Zealand parliament for not wearing a tie.

Male MPs can only ask questions in the debating chamber if wearing a tie. Speaker Trevor Mallard twice prevented Rawiri Waititi from asking questions.

"It's not about ties, it's about cultural identity mate," Mr Waititi said while exiting the chamber, local media reported.

He has called ties "a colonial noose" and wore a greenstone pendant instead.

After being stopped for a second time, Mr Waititi continued with his question until Mr Mallard ordered him to leave the chamber.

Mr Waititi called Mr Mallard's treatment of him "unconscionable", adding that he was wearing "Maori business attire".

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-55996688

Jacinda the colonial oppressivist, keeping the Maori man down!!

As someone who hates wearing a tie, good on him. I love the Maori business attire quip too. It's the parliamentary equivalent of a shitpost.

For Italy it's going to work out fine having a banker instead of Salvini. Draghi as former ECB head will be trusted with more EU money.
Just nothing that will change anything in the long run because otherwise Silvio and the rest wouldn't have signed up for this.
