What's the difference between a ruble and a dollar?

A dollar.

Seriously though, it took 50 years for the economic disaster of the old soviet union to eventually force political change, and god only knows how many suffered within the "iron curtain" before the obvious became apparent, meanwhile the west grew unfettered. The only way putin will be stopped is by a piece of lead inserted between the ears, and although I certainly would not advocate such a response, I'm afraid it may be forced upon us, (the west).
But of course johnson and his inept lackies are more interested in their public image, than doing something positive.
What, I do not know as it is beyond my pay grade, but sanctioning some london football club is laughable.

Putin doesn't care because he is not long for this world. If he takes a few billion with him I doubt he will worry.

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.
