So an ex-double agent Russian traitor has been attacked in Salisbury probably by the people he betrayed. That’s an occupation hazard in the spy game.
OK his daughter got hit as well but that’s how the Russian Mafia work. We kill you and we kill your family if you step out of line. The only thing we should really care about is the poor bloody copper who got caught up in it all. He’s the only innocent in all this but being coldly cynical about it, it’s called ‘collateral damage’ and whilst it’s unacceptable it’s not worth a nuclear war. Anyway, chances are India and Pakistan have a good chance of getting in first on that front.
The fact is Putin really doesn’t give a fuck what we think. Some piss pot little island nation got in his way. So what? Yesterday he won a massive victory and another six years in power. The west will point the finger and shout ‘Fix!’ loudly but he won’t care. Like it or not, Putin is a strong leader and is genuinely hugely popular with the Russian people. It could be argued that he’s the sort of leader this country’s desperately in need of, but we have May. Could you honestly see Thatcher hiding in her office during an election campaign? Could you see her handing billions to the EU as a ‘divorce settlement?’
No. She’d give them all a bloody good handbagging and tell them to fuck off. That’s the kind of leader a country needs. Unfortunately, the country that has one is Russia..
