Snowstorm in #İstanbul shuts down the city; government fails but accuses the opposition municipality… Such impudence…

Pro-government trolls were quite active in blaming the mayor, İmamoğlu- I have to admit I do not like him much but still better than his accusers- but the fault is mostly due the government nepotism and failures.  I should remind you that government-operated intercity highways between İstanbul-Ankara are not accessible at the moment. Much touted İstanbul Airport cannot operate due to the snowstorm and the roof of a cargo building there collapsed… As we have destroyed their life-worlds, not wild boars can be seen in some neighbourhoods. My take is from Maslak, last night:
