May’s unprincipled behavour is enabled by the MSM

There is only one person to blame for the dire state of Anglo/Russian relations and that is Theresa May.    The Russians have a right to be upset that PM May cancelled Boris Johnson’s trip to Moscow three times , then turned on him and screamed and abused him in the media.

Kremlin ask, in their dry Russian way, if Boris is a Russian spy

It is reported on the English speaking Russian service, RT that the Russians want to know if Boris Johnson is a Russian spy! (am laughing uncontrollably).  After MI5 chief Andrew Parker accused Moscow of using underhanded tactics to destabilize Britain, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Zakharova hit back, asking if he also sees “the hand of the Kremlin in the appointment of Boris Johnson as head of the Foreign Office?”  russianfmThis is likely to be just a dry Russian joke, in response to Mr. Parker’s earlier comment.  It is funny, and we don’t take it seriously.  Continue reading

Boris Johnson has a practical plan to end the terrible suffering in Syria

Boris Johnson wrote in the Times today that there is a solution to end the appalling suffering in Syria.  Boris urges the Kremlin to end its support for Assad.assadThe Times reported:  “In an article for The Times today Mr Johnson says that Russia’s military efforts in Syria are keeping Assad in power and are “seemingly indefensible”. Mr Johnson says that Assad is the “one man who bears overwhelming responsibility” for the Syrian war and heaps censure on his “killing machine, his barrel-bombs, and . . . his fight for personal political survival”.
