Personally I don’t blame the Russians one jot over this as they have requested that we hand over Russians living here and we have refused so who can blame them for not handing over Alexander Lugovy. All this shenanigans is just the politicians playing the games they play. At the end of the day where trade and commerce are concerned they need us and we need them and there are certainly no alarm bells ringing in Finknottle Towers.

But compare the crimes of those they want sent back to the crimes of those we want handed over, murder does not compare to falling out with Putin.

However, Mr Boris Berezovsky has a whole lot to answer for doesn't he!

Exactly!They have more obsolescent Weaponry then we have up to date!
What would you rather be killed by?

A musket ball or a parabellum?
Does it make a diference?Dead is dead!

400,000 muskets is worse than 100 GPMGs.

Just reported on the norwegian news, that there has been 3 interceptions of russian bomber in the last 36 hours by the Norwegian Airforce, between Trondheim and Aberdeen, they are reporting the highest activity sine the end of the cold war. Can we buy back the Sea Harriers sold on Ebay?

That was my point.

A weapon is a weapon until it is properly and permanently deactivated, so where does the obsolescence matter?
