Happy Birthday, Mr Putin! - The Serious Discussion Thread

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by TaylorMono, Oct 9, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Twelve Moscow State University journalism students posed in lingerie for a calendar to congratulate the Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, on his 58th birthday.

    The BBC report

    To be honest, I have to congratulate Mr Vladimir Putin's PR team. Despite the human rights controversies of Anna Politkovskaya's murder and the arrest of Yukos Oil Company CEO: Mikhail Khodorkovsky for questionable fraud and tax evasion; the people still profess to 'love' him as Prime Minister.

    On the face, it looks innocent enough. His PR team have given him an "action-man image", but when they start making pop-songs about him, that's when the little grey cells start to work. It appears far too much like a chapter out of 1984 to me, and is comparable with the subliminal pro-Big Brother messages played to the proletariat through digital pop-songs.
