More like the old punch cards for you.

No, he's backed by putin, who's just a KGB gangster and close friend, propping up the last dictatorship in Europe because he's afraid of it going the way of neighbouring Lithuania, which (for Bronski's attention) is in the EU.

But Belarus isn't.

I suspect Vlad is more concerned about it becoming part of NATO - like Lithuania did in 2004 - despite all the waffle about NATO being non-expansionist or threatening to Russia.

As you don't seem to be able to read or comprehend things not in a simple package; I'll say it once more, slowly:

I...hold...no...brief...for...Vlad...or...Lukashenko.

But stop being so blinkered.
If you want to know why we are where we are, stop believing the US propaganda about our relations with he RUssians.
Of course its full of crooks - the US and British and other western global companies helped put them there. We rode in on our horses, shot up the town, got pissed on rot gut Vodka, robbed the bank and put the local crooks in charge of the place.
Then wondered why they started stealing back what we had stolen and abusing the place.
Fucking genius.

Still fuck all to do with the EU.

If you respect the EU so much why don't you believe the EU election monitors who said Yanukovych was elected fair and square in the Ukraine?

The title you hold would be "useful idiot", as the following bullshit proves...

It's been explained to you before that the west tried to help russia with its business dealings, but was met with criminality and corruption, which your hero vlad is now at the head of. Blaming the west for that is utter fickwittery. Nor can you blame the west for the brain drain which took place. Such people were going to go where it benefited them, so they left. And these russian gangsters started "abusing the place" because that's all they know, and vlad just lets them get on with it as long as they're loyal to him.

Starter read for those who have too much 'explaining' and not enough reading and thinking.

Meanwhile, back in the EU...

Next round of negotiations tomorrow and de Pfeffel cunningly :roll: reveals legislation repudiating NI part of withdrawal agreement.

The IRA's spokeswoman Michelle O'Neill has already bitten and warned of the danger to the 'all-Ireland Economy' and the Good Friday Agreement.

Barnier has seen it all before from the Blustery One so it probably won't materially affect things.

About six weeks to go before we need an agreement.

Will Barnier fold?

Or is de Pfeffel about to sell the fishermen down the Swannee?

How much is fishing worth?

Cash - about 0.1% of the economy.

Emotionally - to the John Bull, Johnny Foreigner bashing wing of Middle England (the nutcase wing of the Tory Party and a large percentage of the 'Red Wall' ship jumping loons) - incalculable.

Nicely balanced.

What would Dom do?

Nice to hear some honesty from the Cabinet;
'Yes, we are going to break International law, but only a little bit, and we don't give a stuff.'

Even John Major's weighed in on that.

Even though he's a tory, I'm starting to miss his brand of dull politics. If he ever gives Starmer his backing, it'd probably be a massive boost for him, because Starmer's doing well in PMQs in making Johnson look like the useless twat he is. Three word slogans seem to be his limit.

What makes the difference? Sales in the UK vs. US

cheapliteraturesmith wrote:Also the fact you're American might help you sales in America because no English person would use the expression 'British' - British is such a strange word to English, Welsh, Scottish or even Northern Irish ears. Being British is a dirty work really to us (I could go into the reasons why - but the top and bottom of if it is that fact that it's an outdated concept ... it has slight colonial connotations and has little meaning any more with devolution - in some ways it sounds almost racist to call ourselves British because of the "Great" British Empire) ... it's an odd thing. No one uses it except the Americans, but that's how we market things to you.




I'm English. I've never been British. It says British on the passport. In the same way you think yourself as American but you're not really you're a citizen of the United States of America. America is two continents last time I looked on the globe.

I'm British.
Welsh, English, Scottish family, many of whom came originally from Germany, Poland and France that I know of, Jews, mostly assimilated, married a Northern Irish woman, kids born in N Ireland and Wales. I want us all to love each other, embrace our individual unique languages and cultures and welcome new blood to our mongrel breed from anywhere and everywhere in the world.

No, you're right. I've got some work to do on this assimilation thing haven't I?
