    Default Ukrainians are rioting . . .

    to join the EU! It must be some form of collective insanity; I'd riot to get out of it!

    I thought it was a rather odd thing to be rioting about too. More tax, more defence spending. What exactly do we have that is worth dying for? Democracy? I think you'd find a majority of people would sell their vote for a Playstation these days.

    It is equally curious how the Russians are desperately trying to avoid this, well, you can't call it a cessation, merge with the EU. The East bars any action against Syria and the Ukraine flares up. The West wants to expand oil supply through central Europe and Georgia falls.

    Like chess isn't it.
    Faced with certain disaster, defiance is the only answer.

    The Russians aren't fools - not by a long chalk under Putin (I wish we had someone like him!) - and they can see the EU is on the point of implosion. And the sooner the fucking better so far as I'm concerned.

    I wonder if complacency, has an odour? Because I definitely can smell something in this trend.
