I'll take that as a 'no' you've not bothered to watch the interview. 

Id rather we put our politicians up for 2 hour long form 'interviews' even with vetted questions than the fucking panto that is prime ministers questions. 

I’m sure any politician here in the UK would love a chance for an interview like that. Spend 3 days editing it so that you only see what they want you to see. Actually, they do. They are called Party Political Broadcasts. I agree on the PMQ though.

Yeah. Imagine living in Ukraine and that guy being the guy funding the war you are having to live in. 

He looks like someone who leaves the hob on and goes to bed. 

 

 

So you think its best to just let Russia take Ukraine?

Seriously?

Of course. Then they can have Poland next year. 

Putin told Tucker Carlson he's not interested in attacking Poland, and I don't see any reason not to believe him. 😐

Given he blew up 4 russian apartment buildings killing hundreds to start the 2nd Chechan war I think it's fair to say he's not wired up right. 

Aye

Listened to a podcast about that

Loads of people in Moscow live in flats so they have underground parking, so prime for a bomb

After the first one or two, residents get suspicious of anyone knocking about and seeing a group of blokes they call the police and they arrest them

Turns out they're Government agents but the excuse is that it was all a test and well done to the residents for being vigilant 

Was around the time that Yeltsin was too pissed to do anything, including getting off a plane and it was Putin's push for power as think he was PM then 

Blaming Cechans for it then launching an invasion made him very popular

Hes bang on.

He generally is. My point the other week was that the 20-second facebook clips of him mumbling or messing up a speech are not representative in the slightest. Meanwhile, you can watch dozens of Trump's speeches in which he talks absolute undeniable nonsense for 2 hours, and some see him as more credible. It's mind boggling.

Unfortunately in politics, as you well know, optics are everything.

Biggest mistake Labour ever made was picking the wrong brother....

Indeed. Which is why I think the Democrats should probably pick someone else. Nothing to do with his ability or competence. Pure optics. Sad really.

Ed Milliband would have done a great job. But he looks like Wallace and Gromit, and someone took an unflattering photo of him eating a sandwich.

Having said that, people voted for Boris fucking Johnson. Basically a real-life Little Britain character. Madness.

Windmills are great, we have 9 on the edge of our village, and I really don't mind them at all. On an Island as windy as ours, we should be banging them up left, right and centre - we already have shit loads just off the coast, in fact I think we have something like the 3 or 4 largest offshore windfarms in the world, which is certainly something to be proud of. 

Oddly, when it was really windy the other week, they were all turned off near us, as it was just too windy for them to work properly, which always sounds a bit strange (although I fully understand why) :)

Careful- Greta also criticises them for bird deaths.

Not that it matters, but does she? She protested against a windfarm that would ruin the habitat of some Norwegian Reindeer, but I can't find anything about birds?
