MOSCOW (Reuters) - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Tuesday called the Kremlin's tight grip on power and the media "very worrying" and urged Russian President Vladimir Putin not to cling on to power beyond his present term.

For the sake of the world I am far more worried about Bush's tight grip on power and would much rather see him ousted..

What an odd statement pomp. You favor a former KGB thug to Bush ? That would be like saying you preferred Gerry Adams to Blair. But then again you probably do.

You heard the lady, Vladmo.

Now beat it.
Hi!

Rating of mr.Putin goes lower and lower. Last poll of Russian MoD (classified soon) shows that only 20% officers approve recent monetisation of natural benefits (as local transport and housing).

My uncle worked 53 years on very big nuclear plant near Tomsk. He is local head of party of pensioners and organised demonstration aganst policy of Putin's government. There was huge wave of demonstrations of pensioners across Russia. Pensioners think that Putin robbed them. My father, former colonel of KGB stays on anti-Putin positions. Also, my brother lt.colonel (strategic nuclear missiles) strongly dislike (softly speaking) mr.Putin.

In this context, words of ms.Rice are words of martian. There is no problem with 'freedom of speech', with access to information, to news. For example almost any Russian can hear BBC-Russian (along with Voice of America or CIA-sponsored Radio Freedom). State-run TV-5 brodcasts 5 hours per day Euro-news. And Russian TV is very informative, believe me.

Hey, you may not like W but at least he runs a democratic country where the people elect their president and there is a limit on how long he/she can serve. Therefore W can only serve for two terms before leaving office. Thus ensuring that no one individual can hold on to power.

I wish we had that rule! :roll:

Now can you turn your hand to some of our alternative election posters?

Some of them (posters) are superb. Also, the list is too long. I'm not sure that this is not mentioned


Left: Conservative candidate Ed Matts with Ann Widdecombe protesting in support of the Kacheps family, who were facing deportation.
Right: The same picture, doctored to support the party line, on Mr Matts' election leaflet.

How dare you slag of George Dubbya.

Don't you know that Amerycans invented democracy after winning the War of The Roses during the french Revolution of 1914 - 1918?

They established the first Parliament in Wisconsin, Edinurgh, England after defeating the Jacobites at the Battle of Hastings and elected martin "I'm a murdering cnut but have a back pocket full of US dollars" mcguiness as the first king of ScotIreland in 1874.

For Gods sake men, do you not watch Amerycan television to learn all about world history?
