Bangladesh transport blockade

On the other hand, if you think London (see below) has problems, try living in Bangladesh just now:

Crowds had attacked vehicles and stopped trains across Bangladesh earlier on Tuesday to enforce the transport blockade, intended to force the removal of the election officials before polls in January.

Ports remained closed and businesses called for urgent action to end the blockade as the shipment of most goods ground to a halt in the country of 140 million people.

That’s definitely politics.
