The Russians are coming

A repeat of a recent Andre Rieu concert in Maasterick, Holland, was shown on Sky Arts last night.

It was held and first broadcast well before the possibility that Russian forces might soon appear near the Polish Border.

The huge audience consisted of about 80 Nationalities.

At the beginning of the concert, Andre asked - ‘’Is there anyone from England?’’ ‘’Yes‘’, was the reply. ‘’Welcome to Europe’’ said Andre. It was met with a huge laugh from the entire audience.

Towards the end of the concert, Andre said ‘’the English have left, and the Russians are coming’’. It was met with a muted response.

I got the distinct impression that while we know that the Europeans are desperately sorry that we have left the EU, they still regard us a their main ally or even their protector in the event of threatened invasion.

Had it not been for Putin’s bot army, giving a helping hand to Nigel, you would probably still be in the EU.

Peace, bread and land seems a nice idea in today's world. Maybe Len was right all along. Kind of ignores human nature though.

In our household "Russian spoken & written" is our second language. At this weekend best we do not forget the massive sacrifice made by the Red Army to push the Hitler Third Reich back to Berlin.
Get that. Guys in trenches with one gun between 10 and some pointy sticks. Very brave. I do speak a bit of Russian but it's mainly about household furniture.

Copied and pasted:

“Perestroika” (restructuring) and “glasnost” (openness) were Mikhail Gorbachev’s watchwords for the renovation of the Soviet body politic and society that he pursued as general secretary of the Soviet Union''.

Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan missed a open-door invitation to bring Russia into much close contact with Europe, with the possibility of some sort of membership of the EU. Is it now too late?? Does Boris have Russian ancestry?
