    That's not punking , this is !

    "nothing but 300 people…and a TV channel,"

    "That doesn't make a country."
    I guess Saudi and Qatar are both trying to show who has the most influence (money !) in the region.

    With no aircraft carriers, a few clapped out aging nuclear subs that India would not want to buy - guess Russia might have a point.

    Being international policeman is not worth the bother anyway - if the Syrians/Egyptians/[insert deranged nation of choice] want to kill each other off - let 'em get on with it ... charity begins at home, and there are certainly swathes of the UK outside the M25 that need it!!

    "The Russian official is also said to have joked about Russian “oligarchs” buying up large parts of Chelsea and other upmarket London districts."


    that must give them pride as a Nation ... A few well connected individuals syphoning off the Nations mineral wealth , to play a real life version of fantasy football and monopoly ....

    Churchill was right again:

    'I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma'

    And that well known Tory stalwart Henry Smith

    Not too sure what bearing Putin's sexual habits have on international relations. But noted.
