well, what do we have on war in Iraq?

1. Full-scale foreign invasion on phony pretext (WMD)…. check
2. Key role of Britain in general and Tony Blair in particular… check
3. More than 450 000 local citizens dead, millions became refugees … check

Now back to some positive things. Remember I told you I don't follow ice dance. As for me, only one pair is worth watching atm — Gabriella Papadakis & Guillaume Cizeron (representing France).
Here is their new short program

There were the most massive demos against that war in the West — you know — like — millions of people demonstrated against — the biggest anti war demonstration in history — 17 million over the world I think, including Canada and the States, over 2 million in London alone. Half of the Tony Blair's Cabinet walked out at the time, I have always hated Tony Blair and the Blairites you know, well, it is hard to explain — my husband and his family are traditional Tory voters, but that had nothing (everything) to do with it, because Blair was actually quite good for the City of London, etc. It is hard to explain.

I don't remember this guy, I remember reading he was an artist of some sort and that he nailed his nuts (testicles) to the pavement or something as a sign of protest against something or other. So what?
Yeah, a bit of a weirdo, and perhaps not the proper opposition.
But not all those who oppose Putin (or let's say — not Putin, but the authoritarian set up in general) are freaks, aren't they? They can't be, surely.

As regards this phrase of yours "

Have you ever heard the expression «to call someone's bluff»? Have you ever played a poker game in your life? Call Putin's bluff and support any opposition, no matter how «freaky» it seems. In the situation like your own — an authoritarian (verging on totalitarian) set up and «Putin=Russia — one has to «think out of the box.» It is not to topple Putin or cause a Maidan, it is to change this authoritarian set up in the first place. You gotta be more forgiving to your opposition, as it is a massive underdog. Once it starts shaping up and getting stronger, the opposition will change and then you can be more judgemental about it, now is not the time. It is a process, And if you want people to have a choice and if you want to get to democracy peacefully — that's the way to do it. I,e. - you gotta start somewhere. A good start would be to stop praising everything your authorities do - regardless and throw some support in the way of your opposition - no matter how weak it is. If you think that one day - all of a sudden - a nice strong democratic set up will emerge out of nowhere - all by itself , then you are wrong. After this Putin, there will be another Putin and "freaks". But to be honest - I don't believe that'll be the case, cause like I said to you before - the mentality of your younger generation will be different from the people of today's.

P. S. Tony Blair's era was a total boom time — in stock market, housing market, etc. People lived better than ever during that time here. And therefore — turned a blind eye to a lot of things he did wrong. But not to the war in Iraq. The protests were the largest in human history. But he walked all over the opinion of the Brits back then — not just Iraq, but people's opinions re the EU, etc.. So did Bush in the States. But — at least people here protested — in millions, you in Russia seem to approve of Putin's wars in Ukraine and Syria. But then again — people in Russia approve of almost everything Putin is doing — cause of your propaganda machine.

Hi, I'll write detailed replies later.

What do you think about Poroshenko's decision to impose martial law in Ukraine?

I don't know what to think about it to be honest, it is the first time I hear of it. I haven't been following Ukrainian news or anything like that for a while now, I don't have much time and whenever one switches on the telly news — they are banging on about Brexit — like — NON STOP, all the other news is non existent, absolutely nothing about Russia or Ukraine,, Now they are saying Trump slammed May's deal today as bad for the UK and a potential obstacle in the way of a free trade US — UK agreement (May's deal says we will need the EU agreement (permission) to sign our own trade deals with anyone else whilst during the transitional period, which is at the moment according to May's deal — an indefinite period of time). To be honest — sick of politics. But people talk about it all the time at the moment, at work especially — my mates are saying we are all gonna be royally «f ucked» in the City as it is gonna be a No deal at the end of it all with the sterling and stock market crashing and investments drying up and so on and so on, because as it stands — there is no chance in hell it is gonna survive the Commons vote, May is touring the country at the moment in a desperate attempt to «sell the deal» to the public at large, but her staunch supporter in the Government Michael Fallon issued a stark public warning today that «her deal is doomed.» https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/brexit-deal... I wish it all collapsed and we had another referendum and people voted to stay in. Sometimes I think — sod all this democracy. It would have been best for everyone if things stayed the same as they were before that Referendum.
By the way, my daughter went to the Royal Opera House today with her ballet school class to watch Carmen. An opera, not ballet. She loved it. I talk about my daughter a lot, mostly cause she is doing performing arts and that is something that is very close to me, but our boys are doing very well as well, just wanted to say.
I hope your plans re new job are going well.

As for me Poroshenko tried to delay or cancel elections, but he failed. At first he announced that martial law will be imposed for 60 days period. But almost everybody in Ukraine was against it. Poroshenko was publicly called «пид@р@c» in Ukrainian parliament
So he announced that marital law will be imposed for 30 days (so it won't affect elections).

Glad to hear your daughter liked it. I like it too.

About my new job, it isn't clear yet. Probably it will take a month or two, my potential employer changed it's owner recently, so it caused a little mess.

I hope you will get some good news pretty soon re the new job. The way to look at it is this — it will happen if it is meant to be. If it is not, it won't Everything that happens is for the best.

I remember when I was working for Bloomberg back in 2005, during hot days everyone gathered in Finsbury Square, the Bloomberg building is in front of it) and they had sand and sun loungers there, etc. — for people to relax and some people came from UBS Warburg and Lehman Brothers (both are within 10 minutes walk) and those from Lehman Brothers earned more in the same jobs and Bloombergers (that's how people who work for Bloomberg call themselves) and those from UBS all wanted to get in there. Three years later — Lehman Brothers went down, Bloomberg and UBS are still here. So — just goes to show. It it doesn't materialize — your new job — it is not necessarily a bad thing.

She looks all right, although to be fair — I am nearly the same age and I look younger (I am not lying, it is true). Probably because I live in England, the climate here is very good for your skin. But she looks good for her age. People age differently. My husband thinks it depends on one's genetic make up. I think it depends more on your life style. For example — I run a lot and that keeps one young. Also — I eat porridge every morning, maybe that has something to do with it as well. Who knows.

I didn't even know they are having elections in Ukraine. And yeah, I heard yesterday on the news about some clash in the Crimean waters or something, which led to some escalation. It is all very sad to be honest. I got to go now -straight to the City Airport, I am flying out to Guernsey for a day, coming back late tonight. It is a lovely island, but I am only going to see the airport and our office, so — all in all — quite boring stuff. Have a nice day).
