Brown bear?

This'll probably become the reason to build a new generation of nuclear power plants... we can't trust Russia to supply gas for us to burn.

he has a poor track record re pensions and selling off our gold and giving too much to single mums.

"Giving too much to single mums"? Care to elaborate on that, ss?

Its good be the beholder of power. A few vodkas and whiskeys, a puff or two of cigar smoke, should bring calm ;o)

Have I missed something? I thought we had simply chucked out 4 of each others diplomats.

It'll blow over pretty quickly - both countries want to trade, and trade is important. Neither government is going to do anything that's so serious it will jeopardise trade.

There's a lot of huffing and puffing going on, the RAF scrambled fighters to intercept Russian bombers on Tuesday. Used to happen quite a bit when I was a lad.

I think it's a lot of fuss over nothing. We should have just politely asked the Russians to shoot the next person they wanted to get rid of. Not spread nuclear material about, where it might harm the innocent.

I think it's disgraceful.

Our own Special Forces would never think of going into another country to dispose of its citizens!

Laurie53, I think you would be surprised there, I would stake my life on it our forces have taken out enemies in other lands and probaly quite rightly at times as well
