"The fault is not in our stars but in ourselves."

My heart goes out to Canadians for the deaths of their soldiers in domestic terrorist attacks over the past few days, but I must make known how I feel . Democracy has brought North America many gifts. In many ways, it's the envy of the world -- but democracy has also brought us one curse. It's called neglect.

As we have seen in the United States for the last twenty years and in Canada under the Harper government, the "representatives of the people" don't care about you unless you reside in their district or (at least in the US) contribute to their re-election fund.

In the US this has led to an extremely stingy foreign aid policy in which less than 1% of the budget goes for the purpose. Instead of foreign aid, money leaves the US through immigrant bank accounts and on the backs of drug couriers.

Canada seemed different -- until Harper started giving Canada a US-style tilt toward Israel and changed its military engagements from peacekeeping to active warfare.

As a curse of democracy, neglect has a long history. My Irish ancestors came to the US because of the Potato Famine. A blight killed off the subsistence food of the Irish peasantry and caused mass starvation, even though Ireland was a net food exporter during the same period. The British government continuously washed its hands of doing anything at all to feed people. Irish peasants didn't vote or voted in gerrymandered districts. But that's not when most of my ancestors left. Instead it was during the second potato famine of the 1880's. That it didn't kill as many peasants was because Queen Victoria organized a massive private charity drive for hunger relief because the Mother of Parliaments again did almost nothing for its non-constituents. 

At the end of World War One, France and Great Britain were debtors to the large American banks. At Versailles, they schemed to unload this debt on Germany for "starting the war." The Germans basically had to be brought kicking and screaming to the table. But to the British and French democracies this mattered not at all, as neither had any members of their legislatures representing Germany. In the US, the Allied War Debt was of even less concern. The US Congress had nobody representing Germany, France or Great Britain. From this cynical system, the Germans said, "So this is how the game is played." Their eventual response was Nazism. Notice that both sides played this game ruthlessly. The mistake of the Germans was not to do it quietly. What happened after World War One might have repeated itself if it weren't for the Russian threat. It forced the US into helping rebuild Europe rather than just collect interest on bank debts.

More recently we have Afghanistan. The US gave all sorts of covert aid to them during the Russian occupation -- and just as swiftly withdrew everything when the Russians left as an economy measure. The completely wrecked country fell into civil war and as is usual in such cases the most ruthless faction won. We took no notice in North America of any of this until 9/11. Further on, the US marched grandly into Iraq as "liberators" and then marched grandly out, having done little except overthrow Saddam Hussein and change which faction dominated the others.

In the current domestic terrorism to which Canada has found itself not immune, we see more neglect. The perpetrators were people who even in their potential criminality were ignored by the system, much as similar types had been ignored in the US and went on to do similar things. Not all were muslims. Eric Rudolph was a fundamentalist christian who spent several years bombing abortion clinics and most famously for bombing the Atlanta Olympics. It's one of the great ironies that he's now locked up in the same Supermax facility as some of the radical muslims who've been caught over the years.

At any rate, our real enemy is the neglect that feeds the terrorist recruiting efforts. The people who sign up for jihad have usually been passed over by the system; no jobs, no schooling, no mental health counseling and now no sympathy. This is universally true, not just in North America. The Levant has much higher unemployment than the First World, and frighteningly high levels of neglect and despondency. Why else would anybody be willing to become a suicide bomber, or fall for some radical mullah's sweet talk about having a "close relationship with god?"

I already have friends who are sure that every poor muslim is a terrorist -- a dangerous notion that could well force the issue in the wrong direction. And as with Germany, both sides have done criminal things, but the democracies have been better at keeping it out of the newspapers.

As to ending this one curse of democracy? Unfortunately there is only one solution. It is to make the whole world a democracy, with everybody getting a vote and everybody represented in a world legislature. You don't like that? Well, welcome to our current world of drug smuggling, illegal immigration, terrorism and stupid wars.

Princess Ileana of Romania.

She was a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria and of Czar Alexander II. She was born Her Royal Highness Ileana, Princess of Romania, Princess of Hohenzollern. After marriage she was known as Her Imperial and Royal Highness, Ileana, Archduchess of Austria, Princess Imperial of Austria, Princess Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, Princess of Tuscany, Princess of Romania, Princess of Hohenzollern.

She left the United States in 1961 to join an Orthodox Monastery of the Protection of the Mother of God in France. She later returned to the states to found her own Orthodox monastery in Pennsylvania, at which she served as abbess until her death in 1991. For a brief moment she was to be engaged to Alexander von Hochberg.

Who's Hungry?: Festive fine dining at the Ynyshir Hall Michelin-starred hotel restaurant
The festive period is a time of indulgence and tradition. Where better to celebrate it than at Ynyshir Hall, an award-winning country house hotel in Wales with a long and fascinating history.

Surrounded by the Cambrian Mountains, this handsome white Georgian manor house is the only member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux hotel group in Wales. Set in 14 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and surrounded by an RSPB reserve, Ynyshir Hall was once owned by Queen Victoria who was charmed by the estate's bird life and was responsible for planting many of the garden's trees. Later it was bought by the owner of Mappin & Webb jewellers, William Hubert Mappin. On his death 1,000 acres were sold to the RSPB to establish the reserve that exists to this day.

Ten individually-decorated rooms mix traditional and contemporary décor are name after artists, all with views over the gardens and mountains beyond. Some suites have their own real fires for added festive cosiness, as do the public spaces.

Ynyshir Hall was awarded 2014-2015 AA Hotel of the Year for Wales in the same year that head chef Gareth Ward, previously at Sat Bains, achieved his first Michelin star here. The award-winning combination of stunning hotel setting and the innovative approach by Ward speaks for itself.

The surrounding countryside produces an abundance of fresh, local ingredients as does the kitchen garden with fruit, vegetables, herbs and salads. Ynyshir Hall's succulent seafood comes from Cardigan Bay — with lobsters, crabs and shrimp landed at Aberystwyth and Borth while local rivers are abundant with wild salmon and sewin. Ynyshir Hall has tender-sweet Welsh lamb along with free-range chicken and Welsh Wagyu beef which is second to none. Pork is organic and bacon is hand-cut for breakfast with sausages prepared to the hotel's own recipe. To partake of all this sumptuous fare spend Christmas at Ynyshir Hall.

Christmas at Ynyshir will be especially memorable this year with all the awards beginning with a champagne celebration cocktail party on Christmas Eve, followed by a gourmet dinner. Christmas Day brings a buffet breakfast with time for a tour of the gardens and RSPB reserve before pre-lunch Champagne and a traditional lunch with more adventurous options included. Christmas Cake with afternoon tea should keep guests sated before a sumptuous evening buffet. There's a Boxing Day buffet breakfast before afternoon tea which will be served in the two lounges at the hotel followed by a gourmet, lighter dinner. A Bucks Fizz breakfast sees guests off in good spirits on December 27.
Doubles from £1050pp for three nights including all of the above.

Twixmas is a time for relaxing between the main events so sleep well – there is no noise, traffic or light pollution at Ynyshir so guests can explore further afield with peace as a backdrop– walk on the windswept beaches of Ynyslas beach or stay inside by the hotel's roaring log fires reading. Holistic treatments are also available to further help guests unwind, from traditional Swedish massage to energy healing and meditation walks. Doubles from £215 B&B.

Guests staying for New Year are greeted with mulled wine and mince pies, followed by Champagne cocktails and canapés in the bar before a luxurious gourmet Michelin dinner. New Year's Eve starts with a hearty Welsh Breakfast before guests just relax or explore the grounds and surrounding area before more Champagne cocktails in the bar, a different yet equally sumptuous Michelin dinner, music and dancing as midnight strikes – and beyond all with a glass of champagne. New Year's day brings a late brunch, Welsh Afternoon Tea and a lighter Michelin dinner. Doubles from £1050pp for three nights including all of the above.

A TRIP TO LONDON

If the UK is suffering, above all, a series of shots (the tweed suits, tea time, the royal family, food say "surprising"), London appears as a modern, dynamic and thriving metropolis , arousing the wildest fantasies. 

Indeed, the British capital, like the big cities like New York or Paris, opened internationally in the late twentieth century, including through accession to the European Union. The cosmopolitan city is revealed with more than 50 nationalities, speaking 300 different languages. It is thus common to encounter a punk alongside a businessman in the city. 

Today, the city is not only the capital of England. It appears especially as the European capital of multiculturalism. Monuments, museums and galleries are plentiful and impose their vision of culture to the rest of Europe. London is home to a cultural experience and it still has a pawn ahead of its competitors. 

Where the shoe pinches is unreasonable in the property prices. London has become a particularly expensive city in which the budget does not belong. Thus, the rents were higher than New York! Despite this, London remains a stunning city towards which all eyes converge. 

History of London 
In 43 AD, the Romans built a wooden bridge over the Thames from which Londonium developed. In 60, after a fire caused by the resistance to the Roman conquest of Queen Boudicca, the town was rebuilt and became the commercial and administrative capital of Britannia. 

In 410, the city was abandoned and the Saxons in 789, the Vikings and the attacks of the barbarians began. Edward the Confessor who is on the throne in 1060 built the palace of Westminster, while trade is developing in the area of ​​the City. In the middle of the twelfth century that London is named official capital of England. 

In 1348, London was struck by the plague of the Black Death, which reduced the population by half. However, the population increases during the Tudor dynasty (1485). During the reign of Elizabeth I, the cultural activity is in full emulation. William Shakespeare is one of the engines. 

The rise of Jacques VI of Scotland to the throne (1603-1625) marks the beginning of the reign of the Stuarts. At that time, the city has 200 000 inhabitants. In 1664, another wave of plague decimates 110,000 Londoners 8 months. Two years later, the Great Fire ravaged nearly 80% of the city. A project of Great Reconstruction is then led in particular by the architect Wren who is originally from St. Paul's Cathedral and 51 other churches. 

In the early eighteenth century, London has 500 000 inhabitants, is the largest city in Europe. It enjoys an international reputation with the advent of Queen Victoria. The population stands at nearly 7 million people at the end of his reign. In 1910, it was the beginning of the reign of George V. Windsor with 

In 1940, London suffered the incessant bombing of the Second World War. During this war, basements Whitehall are occupied by Churchill who heads military operations. The war claimed nearly 30,000 casualties. The City and the East End are in ruins. 

In 1952, Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne. In the 60s, London is considered the city's most fashionable world. This is the "Swinging London". In 1979, Margaret Thatcher was appointed Prime Minister, she remained in that position for 11 years. David Cameron, the British Conservative Party, was prime minister since 2010. 
Today, London is an international financial center and an place of culture with its hundreds of museums and historical monuments. London is still full of ambition. 

City tour 

With its village atmosphere, Notting Hill is a very nice neighborhood. Walking through the charming streets, you will feel like one of the famous characters in "Maid in Notting Hill!" Head towards Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace, the neighborhood that saw the birth and growth of Queen Victoria. 

Join through Hyde Park, the must Buckingham Palace, the world's most prestigious royal residence. Then, stop in a beautiful garden, the St James' Park. After visiting Buckingham Palace you will not refuse to rest facing the lake. Taking the Downing Street to join the Banqueting House, notice the guards in front of No. 10, known to be the residence of the Prime Ministers address. Please note that the street is subject to police checks. 

If want to stroll and shopping then you just do not hesitate to get in Convent Garden. You can stop for a drink while listening to music groups or buy souvenirs. 

Not far away is the district of the City, London's financial center. The famous St Paul's Cathedral stands majestically with its beautiful dome. 

South of Saint James's Park, is the Westminster Abbey with her, his palace and cathedral. 

Continue east to find the Tower of London, one of the leading London landmarks. Next, cross Tower Bridge onto the south bank of the Thames where you can visit the theater of Shakespeare's globe or take a ride on the big observation wheel, the London Eye - the city view is breathtaking! 

Stay away a little to the north and head to Regent's Park, yet quiet and relaxing. 

If you want to get away a little of London, Greenwich is the perfect place to escape for a day in the busy life of the city. The architecture, the palace and its grounds will amaze you. Go to the discovery of the famous Queen's House, which is located in the National Maritime Museum. 

Southwest of the city, you'll feel like you're in the particular campaign by visiting the fabulous Kew Gardens. It brings flowers and plants more beautiful as each other in a royal setting. Do not miss the Hampton Court Palace, which borders the garden. 

Many films are set in London and if we do not mention a few: "Mary Poppins" in 1964, "Maid in Notting Hill" in 1999 with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, "From Hell" in 2001, which is a reconstruction of the seedy district of Whitechapel in the 19th century streets, or "Match Point" by Woody Allen, in 2005 with gorgeous Scarlett Johansson.
