Motorcycles banned in Burma
In an interview with the New Zealand Prime Minister John Key yesterday while meeting with the Burmese government, he was asked by a reporter:

"Can you have real democracy in Burma and still keep the ban on motorbikes??

And he replied:

"You could if the voters had the chance to vote out the Government that had such a policy. But apparently the genesis of the ban was that one of the generals' sons was killed on one so they just got rid of them."

Hopefully the general will get over his grieving soon...
