I must say, this is kinda metal:
The agriculture minister of Latvia has been forced to resign in the wake of growing protests by farmers, while the government faces a no-confidence vote.
Minister Martins Roze announced his resignation even as the cabinet agreed a big rescue package for farmers.
On Tuesday they picketed the agriculture ministry and delivered cows' heads in a coffin.
I'd probably resign after that too. Totally gross, probably NSFW picture here.
On a more serious note, Latvia's government faces a no-confidence vote today over its handling of the economy. Will it be the first government on our "next Iceland" list to fall? Stay tuned.
