Andrew Linley says on FaceBook:
“While our news media has been focussing on the (admittedly disproportionate) jailing of some young Russian women for breaking into a cathedral, it has become increasingly clear that this is now a country where one can be jailed merely for something one says. There is no longer even an attempt to muddy the waters by referring to ‘incitement’ or ‘racism’; people are given substantial jail terms simply for writing something which some people deem ‘offensive’. Wake up, the British Sheeple, to your enslavement! You are fortunate indeed that the laws of economics will ultimately deliver you from serfdom; certainly you have done little to save yourselves.”
Depressing to think a post-Soviet slag heap, presided over by a former KGB apparatchik and an oligarchy of the dodgiest rich since Gaius Verres, is not much less liberal than modern England.
