The big issue in Estonia right now is cohabitation rights for same-sex couple. This is an opinion pieces on this subject.

Why Cameron will lose the next election and we will have a government more favourable to Europe and Estonia...

The Second Sex
We are are told that we live in a male dominated society, that men have it easier than women; there are people who make a living by telling us this.I think that men have it tough and the situation is getting worse. I believe that feminism., or at least the radical form of it that has come to dominate, is wrong., and the effects of feminism that are causing great harm in my own country and in the rest of the Anglo-sphere are beginning to crop …
Quiet Storm Published Postimees 21 October 2013
Readers will probably know I stood as a candidate in the recent local election. Let's talk about something you don't know. The other foreign candidates who stood. Hopefully it will help you make sense of some issues in this election.
Whatever the outcome of this election, one thing is clear, I will not be the most successful and most talented foreign candidate. That honour falls to Ole Michael Ramussen, a 45 year old sales manager from Denmark.
Ramussen is so successful precisely because has caused little impact. The local press have shown no interest in him. Yet he is the de facto leader of the Social Democrats in Saue.
Ramussen was elected as councillor four years ago in Saue district for the Social Democrats. He has been in Estonia for 15 years. Like many foreigners he left Denmark because he didn't fit into there any more. He lived in Germany for a while and then Britain. He has been a visitor and an enthusiast of the Baltic…

Descendants of a gang of pirates. Published Postimees 5 August  2013 
Monarchy is in the news in Belgium, in Britain it's always in the news. Let's tell it how it is in the Estonian republic.
A few hundred years ago, a gang of vicious pirates, led by a power-crazed psychopath, invaded my country.
Like the knights of Teutonic Order in this part of the World, they spread destruction before them. They pillaged and raped and slaughtered vast numbers of people leaving much of the country as wasteland and enslaved the survivors. Like the Soviets they killed off anybody who had money or drove them into exile.
For hundreds of years the British Isles, like Estonia was oppressed by the descendants of this band of thugs, who spoke a different language and had different customs. The pirates were known as the Normans. Their leader was known as William the Conqueror.
In Estonia you finally got rid of the Baltic Germans, in England we never got rid of the Normans.
Like every other ethnic group t…
Mere Anarchy Published Postimees  4 July 2013 
Fed up with reading with all the stuff that has been happening at the centre of Estonian politics, lets take a look at the stuff that is happening on the fringes.
Estonia's young left-wing community, the anarchists had a problem. They couldn't seem to get away from the opposite numbers, the Neo-Nazis and Fascist types. The Neo-Nazis would attacked them in Tartu's bars, in the grim housing estates where some of them lived, in the seaside town of Pärnu and outside gay clubs.
Eventually a group of Anarchists got together and came up with the solution. They would set up their own centre. It would be a place to gather, share ideas, hold concerts, do social evenings, have language courses to help to improve relations between Ethnic Estonians and Russian speakers. It would be a place to organise and spread the message of building a civil society and best of all it would be far away from the Neo-Nazis.
They found a place to rent near Kris…

What's up with the immigration people?

On lots of different levels and in lots of different ways the authorities; whether there are border guards, police, or civil servants drafting bills; appear to be getting things horribly wrong.

I will tell three stories. They all have to do with immigration and are otherwise unconnected. They all have an underlying theme.

The first story is my own story. I am aware that police officers and border guards do difficult and necessary jobs under challenging circumstances. I am also aware that the police and border guards have done good things in the past, BUT....guys could you please stop harassing me.


I have been stopped three times in the last month, once in Old Town, once in Kristiine centre and most recently at the Port of Tallinn when I was coming back from Sweden.

At the port, I was with my Estonian family. My niece who is six is scared of police. She thinks naughty the police will carry her off to pri…
