Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Everyone in the Northern Hemisphere has a southern neighbour who is dark-complexioned, shifty, and feckless.

it's fractal...within england it's the same. (without the complexion part). southerners are seen as flyboys, definitely shifty, and in italy it's even worse.

seems the closer to the equator you are, the less moral fibre... there may be a grain of truth there if you're talking about civic responsibility (of a technocratic nature) and competent planning, but it's equalled out by a complementary imbalance in emotional intelligence and playfulness methinks.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
