There's nothing there, just hate, ignorance, paranoia and fear. Nothing of any value whatsoever. I feel dirty just talking about it.
Sanctions were approved today.
Finally, thank God
Don't be silly. The UK themselves only reacted yesterday.
usa media hypes concern about everything, but seldom does anything about it unless they profit from it.
It's times like tonight I wish I still had a cyrillic keyboard, tovarisch
FYI, in the above post, you can assume having a 'good point' is a code word for "My head comes to a sharp point'
Just think how productive it would be if, when you disagreed with someone, instead of childish name-calling you politely stated your reasons for disagreeing.
It might even lead to informative and beneficial conversations.
I drove through Salisbury today. There's usually a queue coming from Southampton as a dual carriageway turns into one lane with sets of traffic lights and roundabouts, but this time it went back a lot further, about a mile and a half further.
I saw three army low loaders, huge artics designed to carry tanks, moving out of the city, (unloaded,) going towards Southampton.
Nothing to report on the way back.

The Kremlin instructed its diplomats in London to deepen their "co-operation" with the Conservative party in an apparent attempt to mute criticism of Russia's human rights record and to rebuild ties following the murder of Alexander Litvinenko.
Emails seen by the Guardian show the Russian embassy has played a key behind-the-scenes role in the gaffe-prone Conservative Friends of Russia. The group, which held its launch party in the garden of the Russian ambassador in August, is on the brink of collapse after the resignation last week of Sir Malcolm Rifkind, its honorary president. Two other Tory MPs, Nigel Evans and Robert Buckland, also quit after the group published a photo of a Labour MP, Chris Bryant, in his underpants. On Thursday, Prince Michael of Kent pulled out of its new year dinner. Hours later its website went offline.
The Guardian has also learned that the group's diplomatic contact inside the Russian embassy, Sergey Nalobin, has family ties to Russia's intelligence agencies. His father, Nikolai Nalobin, is a former KGB general. Nalobin Sr worked in a top role with the FSB, the successor to the KGB, which the government believes was involved in the murder of Alexander Litvinenko. Litvinenko's widow Marina said General Nalobin was her husband's boss in the 1990s when Litvinenko was an FSB agent.
Sergey Nalobin's brother also worked for the FSB, according to the Russian press. Vladimir Putin, a former KGB spy, was head of the FSB before becoming Russian president in 2000.
But it's good that it's now a topic for the Conservatives again.
EU leaders have thrown their weight behind Theresa May’s stance on Russia, with several countries poised to announce expulsions of diplomats, in a bid to dismantle Vladimir Putin’s spy network.
The EU's ambassador in Moscow as well as the ambassadors of many other EU-countries have been called back.
