SKETCH: Dostoyevsky Off the A-Level Syllabus

Cameron reported a number of cautious, prudent and responsible measures to deal with the shirtless, bareback, gun-slinging psychopath with a nuclear arsenal.

Edward Miliband cautiously, prudently and responsibly urged him to be marginally less prudent and cautious, insofar as prudent responsibility would allow.

Miliband urged the Prime Minister to apply “maximum influence on allies” – up to and including the use of sarcasm.

The Prime Minister said Russian activity in the Crimea was “completely indefensible” – something the Crimean army has amply demonstrated. He also said in this grave hour, the Russian behaviour will “incur consequences”.

The Royal Family will not be going to the Paralympics.

They mean it to sting, all right. That’s a cut direct. How will Putin respond? The stakes are high. Europe is a tinderkeg.

The suspended preparations for the G8 will continue in a state of suspension. Be under no illusion: that’s not a go-slow, it’s an actual interruption. It’s a lacuna, the Foreign Office says, not a hiatus. That’s how serious it is.

Ministers won’t meet their Russian counterparts. Immigration talks will be postponed. Dostoyevsky will be taken off the A-level syllabus.

This retaliatory inactivity is a diplomatic strategy at which our world-class civil service excels.

On the positive side, a Facebook page has been set up so the leaders of Russia and the leaders of the Ukraine can talk to each other. And we in the West can only pray – ‘like’ each other too.

In the event that this robust package of doing nothing doesn’t succeed, the second phase of sanctions will start immediately. That is, immediately after Christmas.

        It’s a joke Myfanwy. Dovstoyevsky has not been taken off the ‘A’ Level syllabus.

        It’s lampooning the half-hearted ‘sanctions’ being applied to Put in.

        The Russains are no mugs. They know how the game is played. We don’t give a fuck but we have to be seen to be doing something so we ‘withhold’ some minister going to watch cripples curling.

        Russia responds by withdrawing their cultural attache.

        Russia anschlusses the Crimea.

        We refuse to go to the G8.

        12 months later diplomatic ties are ‘normalised’.

            Spartacus, you have to admit Shakespeare was a very good cheer leader for the Tudor dynasty, an awful lot of history has been taken from his plays, sort of similar to the way US “factual historical” films portray events in the past a good example “Brave Heart”, doing Salmons work for him.

  7. 9

    What really pisses off Dave and the rest of the Europhiles is that Putin has given the EU a bloody nose twice over it’s expansionist policies, first in Syria and now in the Russian heartlands. If this war goes hot, it will be entirely the fault of the power-mad bureaucrats in Brussels and their sock-puppets in the EU parliament. As for the UK, I’m now a convinced proponent of, “Better Off Out” and am preparing for swivel – eyed fruitcake-dom.

      Very true, it’s taken Putin to show the UK voters how dangerous the expansionary EU are.

      It’s also great watching former labour lovers of Russia utterly confused and divided in their disloyalty as their mother Russia sticks a Tsarist 2 fingers up at the failing, weak, divided and economically doomed EU.

      It’s hilarious watching Russia make the EU look undemocratic, I love how he has turned the wests (or the EU’s) language against itself, genius.

    tatar for now says:

    europe does have some leverage – the kleptos use it to launder their stolen assets – so its up to us – is their swag worth more to us than an easing of tyranny in ukraine?

    one feels confident that messrs blair and mandelson would have an objective view on this


    • 33
      C O (Ξ6) says:

      Foreign Policy is dictated by interest, so their swag will be worth more than easing of tyranny to the UK, and most of the rest of Europe.

      However, Europe is now very much split as P’oland / B’altic states and H’ungary for example have vivid memories still of when Russ!a did this to them in the past. This is opening up some serious splits in Europe at present that is shifting the balance away from swag and towards defeating tyranny, much to the chagrin of G’ermany.

      European leverage is minimal because the klepto’s in the R-Fed are politically neutered. Those who are politically connected do not keep their money anywhere near Europe.

      This will be resolved by NATO / US : The tricky balance is going to be preventing F’rance / G’ermany taking this opportunity to steal business from UK which would perhaps be enough to spark a real conflict within Europe.

      When you look at the overall picture it becomes very clear that the EU does not deliver either stability or security to its member states.

      In the immediate instance of U’kraine, EU Foreign Policy has comprehensively failed, but that failure cannot be held as reason for P’tin’s actions.

      P’tin’s actions have only highlighted that Europe has seriously misjudged him and the intentions of the R-Fed in general.

        thanks for a serious answer

        q’s: has uk got anything worth stealing?

        are the russian / ukrainian interests of france germany or utd states larger relative to their economies than those of the uk?

        are the interests of mrs merkel the same as those of nato / us?

        isn’t the uk (for once) comfortably unemcumbered?


        • 104
          C O (Ξ6) says:

          UK has plenty worth stealing, but do not see relevance.

          Suspect that in real terms G’ermany / F’rance may be larger than the UK – but need to look up the numbers. G’ermany / F’rance are directly dependent for energy / resources to feed their industry, and R-Fed is a large purchaser of their finished goods.

          NATO is only concerned with defence. As an entity it has no independent political or foreign policy interests. It simply serves its members as obliged.

          US interest is concerned mainly with reducing it’s security costs in Europe. Interest in U is mainly concerned with containing R-Fed and reducing the threat the R-Fed poses globally.

          M’erkel – or G’ermany’s interests can be seen to be somewhat different.

          They are complicated for G’ermany as B’erlin is regional power competitor to M’oscow (and relatively weak at present) and through the EU is needing to balance the legitimate demands of the E’astern B’loc member states with the contrary economic interests of G’ermany and F’rance.

          There is also competition between states to take advantage of this situation, which is where the issue of R-Fed business through L’ondon has likely sourced from. F’rankfurt would love to handle the oligarchs money. (NB: Much cash has been re-flowing back into C’yprus recently.)

          R-Fed is using this to seed division among EU member states: One should not discount that medium to long term the R-Fed will have plans to capture European capital, or have the EU absorbed into it’s proposed Eurasian Union structure.

          UK unencumbered: No.

          A large proportion of UK pension funds are tied to investments in Russ!a, companies such as BP also have large investments there.

          Clearing the oligarchs out of L’ondon could be done quite easily and would not really hurt the UK much. However, if R-Fed retaliated by nationalizing and freezing UK capital which is tied up in R-Fed that would cause very big problems for the UK.

          Unlike F’rance or G’ermany which have direct dependence on physical resources that are otherwise hard to come by, the UK has unnecessarily entangled itself with a trading partner which cannot be trusted.

          Correcting that error over time will be painful, and the current situation has warped the UK’s ability to make coherent foreign policy decisions, and could be argued as responsible for some of the distortions that are evident in the UK economy.

          A subtle lesson here is that bestowing political power to foreign or domestic private corporate interests is really not a good idea, especially if the foreign corporate interests are politically detached from their repressive foreign government.

          There should have been some enforcement of regulations which are designed to manage geo-political risk for the financial services sector and certain large UK companies.


          • Blowing Whistles 1 says:

            The only real wealth is created by people who actually do work – not people who create false money – hence that people who really work have their wealth nicked from them by bent governments.

            The Capitalist system as it is; is fucking totally corrupted from the top down – it is not ‘the people / the public’ who fucked it up – it is those in the highest positions of power who have mismanaged the whole fucking system while their noses have been in the trough – it has been slowly imploding on them because they just cannot admit that they have fucked up.

            Labour can go fuck themselves with their forked-tongue marxist / socialist rhetoric. And the extreme right wing greedy fucking capitalists can go fuck themselves as well as they are no better than their labour party counterparts.

            What if the neo.cons / AI.PAC / P.NAC / Bilderbuggers / Masons / Common Perps / ZioChrist.ians.judeo.s – are all controlled themselves – doesn’t it all come down to about 50 odd elitist people in the world who really want their fucking necks wringing and not 250 odd years before their and their ancestors’ time?

            ‘BTW’, check your facts on WW2: British airmen who crash landed in the South were transported quietly to the border, and released. Only Germans were interned. Also, if Churchill wanted Irish ports in WW2, he could have just taken them militarily. The truth is, he didn’t really need them, as he had one major deep water port at Londonderry, i.e., Lough Foyle. The further truth is it suited Churchill to have a neutral state as a buffer at Britain’s back door, which the Germans would likely leave alone for the duration.

            Nobody stabbed you in the back, pal.

    Furthermore any sort of military action on our part will only be some sort of updated charge of the light brigade – only this time the Russians would destroy us before we even had a chance to charge. Or, more likely, Putin would turn off the gas taps.

    Sure we could try to ‘destroy’ the rouble but on recent performance; the laws of unintended consequences and the modern shallow short term thinking of our politicians scares the shit out of me.

        C O (Ξ6) says:

        !ranian guy bought tickets in T’hailand for the two guys who were travelling on lost/stolen A’ustrian / I’talian passports.

        Apparently his name is Ali.

        May be nothing, other than a bit of people trafficking, but that the guys in question missed their first flight, so Al! bought them a second set of tickets (on the MH370 flight), is a bit fishy.

        Ali apparently buys air tickets at least once a month for his ‘clients’ but was unavailable for comment when his T’ehran mobile was called.

        (h/t Ha’aretz: )

        Authorities in B’angkok earlier confirmed that the passports in question had not been used to exit T’hailand.

        (h/t Bangkok Post: h**p:// )

        There was a terrorist threat against Ch!na called in to T’aipei last week according to T’aiwan’s spy chief:

        (h/t SCMP: h**p:// )

        – Contradicts early reports which were stating that there had been no ‘intelligence chatter’.

        That should not be so difficult for the BBC to put together, and have left out Air M’alaysia’s prior convictions in N’ew Z’ealand for carrying folk on false passports.

          Have some of this then – CO Bar3 – i have not dropped from i’s Radar that a certain group of people have ‘form’ at getting into a country with 11 or so persons using false and fake passports to do a ‘hit’ and then they ‘get’ out. Said issue seems to have fallen off many peoples’ radars on that hit – and of course that whole issue has been ‘buried’ with not one indictment against fucking mos.sads men and women by the UN or the ICC or any body who isn’t fucking scared witless or craven to the …

          Perhaps the malayan authorities might want to take a closer look at who loaded the plane and the cctv footage of the baggage handlers and of every single person on the flight list – esp anyone with diplomatic or other highly political connections.

          Also The presshounds seem to be avoiding any ref to a ‘rogue missile’ – but they never kill people do they?

          With the utmost of respect to the innocents who have died.


          • JadedJean10 says:

            An astute comment and observation. I was in Dubai the month before that particular hit in 2010.


          • JadedJean10 says:


            All ten of those Western suspects had their facial photos taken by the the Dubai authorities yet those pictures were never exposed to the Western MSM. To date none of those suspects have ebever been arrested.


          • Curly top says:

            So, if the plane was not abducted by aliens, where tf is it hiding – and if it is under the sea why is the apparently indestructible black box sonar not emitting any signal? Surely some international radar trackers must have an idea if it actually switched off its transponders and went off in a different direction?

            Most curiousful.

      A liberal progressive left wing woman doing what the mullahs demand of her by wearing the clothes of oppression? Whats next? maybe she should buy some knee pads so she can enter the negotiation room on her knees to show how much she ‘respects’ these bigots.
