Was interested to hear a TV reporter in Ukraine, either Sky News or BBC, give the Ukrainian view of their Lukansk defeat, then add something like “if that can be believed“.
At first, months ago, anything the Ukrainians (Zelensky regime) put out as “fact” was naively believed, even patent nonsense such as the non-existent “Ghost of Kiev” fighter ace. Those lies were retailed to the public, and affected the Western public perception of what was happening, and the reaction of Western political leaders.
Now, reality begins to set in. The forces of the Kiev regime in Eastern Ukraine are running out of soldiers, ammunition (especially for artillery), artillery itself, and fuel. The Russian forces are now gradually carrying out a large-scale strategic or positional operation which will end with the occupation of all of Ukraine east of the river Dnieper.
Conservative sleaze MPs
Funny to see demands that Boris-idiot should explain why he wanted appointed the apparently-appropriately-named Chris Pincher to the position of Chief Whip from having been Deputy Chief Whip (inter alia, the guardian of Con MPs’ morals and ethics). It is obvious, surely? “Boris” wanted someone morally-compromized, who would therefore be lax in passing judgment on Johnson’s own perennial activities.

“Department store” is a better description (Warenhaus is the German for department store as well as, I think, warehouse).
Occasionally, decades ago, I would have a coffee on the open roof terrace that has a very good view over Paris. The store is close to the Seine. By the entrance, there was usually an old organ-grinder with a monkey.
Think twice before believing any doctor who prefers to work as something else, eg as a TV presenter. That especially applies to medical doctors who become politicians, eg Dr. Liam Fox; eg that unpleasant and stupid woman who was MP for Totnes for a few years (and whose name escapes me right now); also Dr. Hastings Banda, Dr. David Owen, and Dr. Evan Harris (etc).

“Sven Longshanks” news
“The trial of James Allchurch, accused of setting up a “highly racist” and “highly antisemitic” podcast station called Radio Aryan, has been delayed by almost a year amid disruption caused by the industrial action.
The case, which opened at Swansea Crown Court last week, was going to be put back to work around strike days this week and in the coming weeks but several jurors were unable to attend on the proposed new dates so the jury was discharged by the judge on Friday. The trial is now listed for March 20, 2023.”
Ha ha! “They” (((the you-know-who’s))) will be furious…
What always strikes me is the smug, precious, “entitlement” of the bastards. Pity no-one smashed that couple in white (read Daily Mail report) over their heads with a baton or iron bar. In fact, they look like good candidates for that even when not damaging nationally-important works of art.

To my mind, satire of some kind, but reflecting some prevailing views of the Canadian authorities.
A true American classic.
