Hello one and all.
As a change I thought I would leave brexit and that wretched virus that I can't remember the name of, and look at a much more worrying situation in eastern Europe.
It seems strange that no one, to my knowledge, has pointed to the similarities to the Sudetenland situation in '38. And we know how that ended don't we children, to the one now facing us. One look at the map will tell you the real reason why he wants to annex the Ukraine, but we seem more interested in the "proper" use of pronouns than standing up to a bully who could well send the world back to the stone-age quicker than the most ardent of green activists could ever wish for. Hitler, after drafting the Munich agreement despite the Brits and Frogs believing it was a Czech agreed one, then used it as an excuse to unleash one of the worst disasters to hit this planet since the Chicxulub meteorite.
Considering that most of the European politicians are of a similar mindset to our own feckless individuals, I would image that comrade Putin is quite buoyant of success, before the West takes any action.
History does repeat itself, and usually when we don't learn from it.

Tickles me that the government can rent four star hotels for the boaters, but ask private residents to house Ukrainian refugees.

The fact that it is going to attract few uptakers, says it all. If your house is being bombed what one needs is a place of immediate safety, not a house in a "foreign" land with satellite tv and fast food outlet round the corner.
Of course then we have the "thorny" question as to what we, (the UK), consider to be refugees? One HM's imbeciles have yet to clarify, or even consider. angry.gif
Question: What's the difference between an Afghan and a Ukrainian?
Answer: If you have to ask then you are in the wrong job.
