Told You The Russians Like A Joke

And it's not just Gazprom, either: Putin has 'em rolling in the aisles too (if they know what's best for them). Nice one, Volodya !

And on the topic of Putin, nice to see that others are latching on to one of the 2011 predictions made around the New Year lunch-table.

We must treasure him while we still have him.

It's the way I tell 'em

The lunch table is a major factor in policy making. Almost all major policy decisions in Russia were made over a wet lunch, when the talk was high.

Putin's Russia is a bit worse than dear old blighty but similar: the top businessmen, the politicians and the crooks are all interchangeable, and frequently so. New bums, old farts. And especially don't interfere in the Moscow police pastime of beating up people in the badly lit back streets, rather than apprehending the crooks/etc who sail past in their limos.
