Barely worth a mention...

..but the RAF has reported 20 recent Russian incursions into British Airspace.

As I have mentioned previously, several well known British politicians in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords have lucrative board positions of companies which are either Russian controlled or which have significant business interests in Russia.

A former KGB officer ("former"?- "once a Chekist, always a Chekist"- Vladimir V. Putin), Aleksander Lebedev is now the owner of a significant part of the British newspaper industry.

Strangely muted comments from journalists on this takeover... I wonder why?

It of course might conceivably be the RAF stoking up pressure to retain their unnecessary aircraft programme.
