Trying to find someone 'totally to blame and completely responsible' for everything whenever something bad happens will probably go down as the defining cultural trope of our infantile era.

I want to know who is to blame for that (and can I claim compensation?)

State Media story about Russian donations to Conservatives from 2014. Interesting as they won the 2015 GE then called a referendum on EU membership in which the Prime Minister and most of his MPs campaigned to remain.

Conclusion: the Russains tried to keep us in the EU.

UK-based Russians donating large sums to Tories

There seems to be a rise on blaming the Russians so I thought it needed a thread to gather all the anti Russian stories on

the latest is meddling in the brexit campaign 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44428115

Devious Ruskies backing both sides, just like the Rothschilds would xD Sense of irony failure in the remainer angle of the second story - brexit bad because foreigners interfered in democratic process concerning remainer intent to give power of our government to foreigners.

Pity the MSM don't look into the possibility it could be QE + ZIRP and the untold borrowing  to bail out the chosen ones that the wonderful Obama oversaw during his time that are leading to so called populists doing well. 

As without the above and capitalism being allowed to run its course which would have led to house prices crashing then this website and HPC which seemingly attract populist voters would not exist. 

But then that'd involve a little honest journalism and the journalists and their bosses becoming poorer hence choosing the option of blaming those pesky Russians.

I understand the mess that the US has got into over Russia -- they're the 'old enemy' and there's a large % of the population for whom any communication with Russia is intrinsically bad.  Even if 'it is sensible to rise above the past to talk with Russia over potential deals', it is still A Bad Thing to those people.

But the UK?  We're far more neutral wrt Russia.  Some people talking to the Russians, or some Russians talking to people in the UK is a non-story.

The only thing perpetuating the interest in Russia is the spread of transatlantic influence everywhere.  Ie, we're likely to read/watch news from the US, watch US chat shows, and that 'Russia-paranoia' vibe comes along with it.

Interesting how the main themes of this idea have replayed down the centuries

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Russian_sentiment

Basically the template is that Russia is an Asiatic despotism hell bent on the invasion and subjugation of Europe. Needless, to say the corollary was that the only way to neutralise the menace was by waging war on Russian territory.

The same argument was trotted out by both Napoleon and Hitler. 

It is still being used with modifications today.

Of course, Russians themselves see their country as a  bastion of Christianity  and a defender of European civilisation from exactly the same menace that the rest of Europe thinks they represent.

for full disclosure, I went to Moscow in 1984 and again in 1993.

One more trip and I'll be detained.

I was in Moscow last week, (another GAP year trip :)). A friend saying goodbye, :D I hope she wasn't a spy.M86A6304.thumb.JPG.5e1fb3af60d673a8ddb7bebd7414008d.JPG

Lol, the media is going into overdrive making allegations that the Russians gave money to Aaron Banks to support Brexit.

Id love to know the influence of Saudi money on our democratic system.

It is so obvious and so tedious.

Unsurprisingly, this allegation was first presented for our delectation in 2016.

These people really need to change the record on the turntable.

Stephen fucking Kinnock, as thick as his father

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44442143

England should wear black armbands during the World Cup to protest against the Russian regime, an MP has said.

Labour's Stephen Kinnock said the Fifa tournament is a "massive propaganda coup" for Russia. 

Fifa bans players from wearing political, religious or commercial symbols and the FA has previously been challenged over UK teams choosing to wear poppiesnear to Remembrance Day.

The FA said it would not respond to the suggestion from the MP for Aberavon.

After the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury in March, Mr Kinnock told a parliamentary debate Russia should be stripped of the right to host the tournament.

A little bit of virtue signaling goes a long way.  Idiot

While they're distracted by the footie and the black arm bands that S Kinnock wants the England team to wear because of Salisbury and human rights issues.

I'm sure they might also try to create some Jesse Owens style incident if they possibly can.
