    Is it true that Finland will apply for Russia -as reported in the press . The border with Russia very long …. Perhaps the Russian army will be a bit stretched busily murdering civilians in the name of putin – who is sadly still alive ….

      “Is it true that Finland will apply for Russia” ?????

      Perhaps you mean NATO membership? If so there is apparantly a 54% majority in favour, but as far as I know, no absolute decision has yet been made.

      Might be of more interest at the moment to take a look at the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad sandwiched between NATO countries Poland and Lithuania. They have closed their borders to Kaliningrad, so no road transport is getting through, but there is a rail link running through Lithuania.

      https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/vilnius-station-confronts-moscow-kaliningrad-train-with-images-war-2022-03-25/

      It appears the rail link is still operating, but this is a very real flash point between Russia and NATO and if any incident is going to happen, here is the most likely.

      Most people probably aren’t even aware about Kaliningrad, although they’ve heard the name, and media aren’t doing much to inform people about its importance either.

          Ah, sometimes the mind runs faster than the fingers can type.

          Did you manage to look at the links which are potentially important ?

            Thoughtful very thoughtful … reading putin’ s frame of mind … any excuse to throw ‘Russia threatened by NATO ‘ at the ordinary Russians has got to be a ‘play ‘ .
            I suppose the bits of the west monitoring propaganda output will be looking for Nasty NATO types victimising russian speakers on the border to create the necessary ‘need ‘ to invade …

            Germany going into Poland in 1939 springs to mind – especially if he already thinks there won’t be much response …

            Finland / Sweden might as well join NATO now anyway …

    My 3-year-old son, who’s had Long Covid for 5 years, told me “the Tories don’t care how many people die from Covid so long as their rich mates get richer whilst 27 million kids live in poverty, as Our Polly pointed out in today’s Guardian!”

    As I often say here, the Left never know when to stop, nor when they have achieved objectives (re the greed of Sonewall) and such is the case with the Feminazis.

    I have tried very hard here to tell people why their campaign against trannies is so misconceived and one sided, some have listened others have been so consumed by their hate of trannies that they have even sided with their enemy – My enemies enemy is NOT my friend.

    And what has all this led to ? A great success for women? No of course not, more lunacy was of course always going to follow as sure as night follows day, and now these rabid loons want men to be criminalised for ‘staring a them’!

    It now appears a man will not be able to even look at a woman without fear of prosecution !

    For all of you who supported these lunatics campaign against the trannies, I hope you’re pleased with yourselves, you enabled the nutters to take yet another step on the road to extinction of freedom and common sense.

      I’m so glad that I don’t know what a ‘trannie ‘ really is – but I have my own imagined idea – chaps with dresses … and I have no interest in what they are or whether they exist …..

        Trannie an abreviation of transgender who the feminazis have had an irrational campaign against.

        Don’t forget only around 5% of women identify with the feminazi’s, don’t be fooled by women with big mouths screetching nonsense.

      “BREAKING: British Cycling Board of Directors has voted in favour of an immediate suspension of its transgender policy.”

      Meanwhile Australian Government experts were unable to provide an immediate answer when asked at a parliamentary committee to provide the definition of a woman.

    “This fascinating documentary gives audiences a deep-dive into conspiracy mentality and why we are so vulnerable to disinformation”
    Interesting that is being aired here first, and doesn’t yet have a release date for the US.
    .. https://www.twitter.com/katgellin/status/1512437352886673415

    It’s preceded at 7:50pm by “Germany’s Neo-Nazis & the Far Right,”

      The charity adverts before the prog starts
      look like disinformation to me
      e.g. Political lobby group WWF telling me donating to them will save the planet.

      Prog begins with Biden speaking seriously about vaccines followed by Psaki.
      as if the start of Covid vaccines began with them
      .. Fakenews, cos Trump beat them to it.

      Within seconds we have footage of Babbit climbing through the Capitol window.

      “especially with the ascendance of Fox News”
      The prog seems to be the normal libmob projection
      (paraphrase) ‘It’s easy FakeNews is over there’

      Speaker : It’s incredible these people say they are studying disinformation, then they say they don’t even watch the news any more”

      The experts seem to be pushing a conspiracy theory “social media is designed to create this”
      .. I don’t think there is that much design in social media.

      One “expert” is the Editor of left wing mag “Mother Jones”

    I sense a Global lefty reckoning might be underway.

    In the US Biden is looking increasingly unstable and his presidency at risk. The polls show the Democrats to be sinking fast.

    In Canada, a backlash against the despicable Trudeau is looking more and more likely with Trudeau trying to forge allies with any other parties to cling on to power.

    In France, Le Pen is breathing down the neck of the equally despicable Macron.

    If all this means that the World has had a bellyfull of these clowns and is ready to crash and burn their woke policies, so much the better.

    Trudeau is gunning for Rebel News. Censorship is Trudeau’s main obsession. No alternate viewpoints allowed.

    Trudeau’s Censors Deny Rebel News a ‘Journalism Licence’ (25 mins – Ezra Levant Show).

    They are therefore taking the Canada Revenue Agency to court.
