The Daily Telegraph puts forward an assertive position against Russian President Vladimir Putin in today's Op-Ed page.
However it is a bit much to see praise lavished upon the oafish and blundering Liam Fox.
The Tory Defence Spokesman may speak out against the right target- the bullying crassness of the Putinists. However his inaccurate and boorish criticism of our new NATO allies in central Europe has alienated many potentially key allies in the battle against the new brutalism in the Kremlin.
While I am happy to agree with the Telegraph that "once you start paying the Danegeld, you never get rid of the Dane"- Fox is a blunderer who should be removed from his position before he does any more damage.
