'Universal' reversal?

In an interview on ICTV, one of PoR's top men, Yevhen Kushnaryov, called the history of negotiations with NSNU an history of blackmail and deception. "The two parties spent 10 days trying to agree a "Pact [or 'Universal'] of National Unity." The President forces PoR to agree to and sign his own program, under the threat of dissolution of parliament and re-elections. PoR are being forced to capitulate their program by the president's political party, which obtained less than half PoR's votes."

The biggest topics of dispute, according to Kushnaryov, are the language question, attitude to NATO and Common Economic Space, federalisation system of the country, and creation of a unified church.

No doubt the president would say, in the words of Basil Fawlty, "Apart from that, everything else OK?"

In reference to Lincoln's assassination at Ford's Theatre in 1865, we Americans have a saying:

"Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?"
