    Russian TV mocks Brit Royals

    I'm just watching on satellite the "news"/propaganda on Russian channel NTV (in 90s, best and most popular independent channel over there; Putin later had it taken over by one of his crony oligarchs and now it is his biggest mouthpiece, aside from the channels directly run by the state).

    They are talking about the scandal with the UK over that poisoned spy, and how Theresa May, among other things, "banned" (in their words) the Royal Family and all its members, from attending the World Cup in Russia, over this whole thing.

    And they are making fun of the Royals, how they are nothing, have no power, some woman PM telling them all what to do...

    It's just sad, to me, because it looks as though the lady, the anchor, isn't just saying this because is paid to. She really believes this. Putin has really brought back that authoritarian mentality in Russians. Taught them that democracy and liberalism ate weakness, something to despise, to sneer at and spit on...

    One day, Putin will get his due if he doesn't die of old age first.

    Trump will not be president forever.

    Pretty sure that in 1776 you'd still be a petty troll.

    Theresa May is very limited in what she can do in response. Kicking out the embassy staff isn't really enough. Freezing Russian assets (within very narrow small-print definitions) is a delicate balance between hurting a few oligarch pals of Putin, and causing a flight of Russian laundered cash from London. Not sending the royals or politicians is supposed to send a signal. We can't boycott using the team, since FIFA will ban the team from international competition.

    Just in passing Russia is the UK's biggest client for weaponised nuclear substances...And the May Conservative Party took £800,000 in donations from Russians since the Brexit screwup started.

    The Oligarch laundered cash... that's a worthy target.
