From Soviet Socialism to National Socialism in 15 years

After the murder of Litvinenko, perhaps we should not be surprised that Shell have decided to relinquish control of the Sakhalin-2 energy fields. As BP's deal with TNK now increasingly comes into the spotlight, it is salutary to see the campaign of harassment against the British Ambassador waged by Putin's thugs.

The fact is that Russia has drifted into "capitalism in one country"- failing to acknowledge the necessity to trade in order to gain expertise. The only relationship they seem to understand is control and compulsion.

This is Fascism.

Oh yes- I should have mentioned that the incumbent candidate was reselected in Aberdeen South.

I have no other plans for selection eleswhere.

Yes, it is great shame that one of the more reasonable Liberal Democrats was passed over.
