Russia Report - Read all about it.

Initially, from this book:
But also from further research.

Have you ever stopped to think you live in a country where you can buy and read such books, your internet use is not monitored routinely and intrusively by specialist kit installed at the lowest levels of Internet Service Provision (Система оперативно-разыскных мероприятий - 'System for Operative Investigative Activities', which actually they learned from the East Germans and thought so good they brought it back to Russia), and you can criticise the government and system all you like?

No of course not, that would require some critical thought wouldn't it?

Pop this on your to-read list, it's quite good.

An interesting insight, but you seem to have inflated that into hyperbole, perhaps down to a lack of understanding of global finance.

But also from further research.

Sure.

And your point is?

Puzzled of Peckham. :-D

I do find it funny how "taking back control" doesn't appear to extend to rooting out corruption.

I mean, we're able to embark on a huge national project of uncertain impact to our economy.

Just not able to do one which has been identified as a corrupt and corrupting influence (which impacts national security and the democratic process).

So as I say. A choice.
The damage to our economy had already been done by virtue of the shenanigans of the EU/ EEC. There are two options for us and Labour are determined to find the LCM. Neither the half German side of me or the English finds that acceptable, but I was always impeded in my ambitions. “ Sozialisten sind betrueger.” Is also a German mantra.

our biggest weakness is that our economies, which are open, allow themselves to be infiltrated. You want to buy a Matisse, no one asks you the provenance of the money you’re using.

What luxury is a lack of self-awareness.
Actually, you don't appear to lack self-awareness to me, Although I could be wrong.:razz::razz::razz:

And as the report makes clear, that extends to political influence...

Unopposed by the current government.
 
That’s a non sequitur by definition. After all policing is supposed to be without fear or favour. Nada.
A government is supposed to be alert to and defence Parliamentary democracy from outside threat.

At all times, not just when it is convenient or able to ignore it when it is too hard.

Still, Conservative lead by whatever the poll rating so who gives a ****.

Given norms and convention don't matter and we can just do whatever we like, I'm off to my dark net credit card fraud business.

Come in, now. They're only being grossly negligent in their main reason for existence in a limited and specific way.

So that's alright.
