Merkel Wins & Bangladesh is unwilling to change

There is a lot anger out there because the government of Bangladesh has refused to decriminalize homosexuality .  The law is a relic from British rule and the current government is not ready to enter modernity.

I guess I won't be vacationing in Bangladesh this year.
Despite all the pre-election reporting of a close but certain re-election of German Chancellor Angela Merkel it appear her center right party is coasting to a huge victory .

Merkel's party has captured 41.5% of seats which is a bit short of the absolute majority. She must now form a coalition with some the smaller parties and she is likely to accomplish with ease.  This is the largest victory for an incumbent party since the post unification election.
