Kitchen Cabinet

Resentment towards France and its historical and contemporary colonial legacy seems to be an important feature of the unrest in Niger. As indeed does, apparently contrasting tension between the francophone Niger and the English speaking Nigeria.

It doesn't help, moving from the sublime to the ridiculous that the adjective based on one is Nigerien while Nigerian describes the other. I need to pay attention to both issues because, God knows, the UK media doesn't.
