23/12/2007 - Queen Elizabeth II's Christmas message

A statement released by Buckingham palace this weekend that the Queen of England has moved to station in You Tube rocked the planet as commentaries and publications continue to flow, as a response to the diversity

of the British colonial maneuvers to preserve the traditional conservative system of government and in becoming more adaptive to modern challenges.

The 81 year old Queen Elizabeth II has long been demonstrating her ability in making sure that England is not the only territory she controls, but this time around the ground breaking news begins with a Christmas message to the global audience, which the Buckingham palace claims, that she needs to be sure that more people get the message world wide.

Primary observation has shown that most of the videos on the Royal channel are disabled for commentaries, but in good faith they demonstrate historical transformation from Her assertion to the throne, and events that shook humanity till date, as well as the Queen's commitment to rule the people's heart side by side, coming in line with the current transformation of the global information technology.

Truly, this is just the beginning of a new information era with the British palace initiative demonstrating her ability to apply new IT, in addition to the  traditional BBC and national media, which they’ve been using since 1957, now transforming to the World Wide Web. In some quarters Weekend Global gathered that, the strategy is another move not just for mass media publicity, but that show business is already rocking the palace. Of course the Queen reigns, but Google rules.

Global Politics:

 Venezuelans crushed Hugo Chavez hope to build another socialist state in Latin America

 Venezuelans said no to President Hugo Chavez by crushing his hope to build another socialist state like Cuba in Latin America. In a stinging defeat Monday in a vote on constitutional changes that would have let him run for re-election indefinitely and solidify his bid to transform this major U.S. oil provider into a socialist state.

Voters defeated the sweeping measures by a vote of 51 percent to 49 percent, said Tibisay Lucena, chief of the National Electoral Council, with voter turnout just 56 percent.

She said that with 88 percent of the votes counted, the trend was irreversible.

"This was a photo finish," Chavez said immediately after the vote, adding that unlike past Venezuelan governments, his respects the people's will.

It was the first victory for an emboldened opposition against Chavez after nine years of electoral defeats.

"Don't feel sad," he urged his supporters, saying there were "microscopic differences" between the "yes" and "no" options in a referendum that Chavez's opponents feared could have meant a plunge toward dictatorship.

Chavez's supporters had faith he would use the reforms to deepen grass-roots democracy and more equitably spread Venezuela's oil wealth.

The changes would have created new forms of communal property, let Chavez handpick local leaders under a redrawn political map, permit civil liberties to be suspended under extended states of emergency and allow Chavez to seek re-election indefinitely. Now, Chavez will be barred from running again in 2012.

Other changes would have shortened the workday from eight hours to six, created a social security fund for millions of informal laborers and promoted communal councils where residents decide how to spend government funds. The reforms also would have granted Chavez control over the Central Bank and extended presidential terms from six to seven years.

Chavez had warned opponents ahead of the vote he would not tolerate attempts to incite violence, and threatened to cut off oil exports to the U.S. if Washington interfered.

The loss was unfamiliar territory for a leader who easily won re-election last year with 63 percent of the vote.

All was reported calm during voting but 45 people were detained, most for committing ballot-related crimes like "destroying electoral materials," said Gen. Jesus Gonzalez, chief of a military command overseeing security.

At a polling station in one politically divided Caracas neighborhood, Chavez supporters shouted "Get out of here!" to opposition backers who stood nearby aiming to monitor the vote count. A few dozen Chavistas rode by on motorcycles with bandanas and hats covering their faces, some throwing firecrackers.
