Yeah, I heard about that. Did the UK win?

It's because Russian troops are really there in Sevastopol. So it's rather you don't interfere at all or at least you provide locals with a proper protection.

You are right, I agree with you on that one.

P. S. I am not a lover of the freaky opposition, what I stand for — is a democratic society with democratic principles. You can't build one without the opposition. In Russia they hate the very concept of any opposition and this is very wrong.

PPS. By the way, they are really scaring everyone with No Deal Brexit here now.

Live Brexit latest news: Jean-Claude Juncker 'not very optimistic' about avoiding no deal, as he admits he has 'Brexit fatigue'

You know — Labour Remainers split from Labour and formed an Independent Group, now some Tories are expected to defect from the Tory Party and join them as well. Here in Britain it is a two party system mainly (I mean — there are other parties as well — UKIP, SNP, Lib Dems, but they are small compared to Labour and Tories) and now we are having a third party. These are historical events going on.

Labour and Tories brace for more walkouts

Tory defectors pledge to destroy Conservative Party

Allister Heath: Will any political party be able to survive the second act of Brexit?

The Independent Group: Who are the Tory and Labour MPs who have resigned and joined the new party?

The Tiggers have aspirations of creating a true third force in British politics

One of the things I don't like about our opposition, that they change their stance immediately and criticise Putin actions even if he steals their own ideas and tries to implement them.

Probably, you heard of «Бессмертный полк» movement. The original idea was born among oppositional ranks, Putin used it later




Now that movement is heavily criticised by opposition.

I heard they used anti semitism as a pretext, but in fact they want Labour be on Blair-like positions.

That is probably the only time in history when the UK and Russia were actually at war with each other — real war I mean, not just exchanging nasty words, etc.

The opposition is there primarily to criticize and yeah — to influence Government policies. So «stealing ideas» from them is not a bad thing at all, this is what is supposed to happen.

Well, there is a problem with Antisemitism in the Labour Party — that comes from Corbyn and his gang. He is very critical of Israel and has regular meetings with terrorist organisations like Hezbollah, etc. But the main reason for the split is Brexit — those MPs who defected are Blairites and very pro EU, Corbyn's stance on the Brexit issue has not been very clear — sometimes he positions himself as a Eurosceptic, other times he insists that the UK should stay in the Customs Union with the EU. But he doesn't want the Second Referendum. Those MPs do. And some in the Tory Party do as well. I do not see the point in it to be honest. You have to respect the first vote — that is a number one principle of democracy. However, there is no solution to the Brexit impasse on the horizon — Brussels is not budging on the backstop issue and the Tories won't back May's agreement without the back stop get out clause. So — as it stands — we are heading towards a no deal Brexit.

This is interesting

Italian 'post-fascist' far-right party joins Tories' EU-wide political group set up by David Cameron

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/i...

By the way — in Italy the Euroscepticism is a lot higher than here. It is just that it will be a hell of a lot harder for them to leave the EU, cause they are in the Euro currency. That makes leaving the EU next to impossible.

Yass, Evgenia just did her first clean skate in the season! I feel like a happiest figure skating fan ever! It wasn't her best skate, she was extremely cautious, but she finally skated without mistakes after changing her technique! She is a fighter, I knew she could do it and she just did. Lol, I'm crying, people around me look at me with wtf? question in their eyes but I couldn't care less

That is fantastic news. Tears of joy are a good thing, but you are a bit fanatical about figure skating, aren't you?

P. S. I am spending a bit more time on the forum than usual, cause doing a lot of studying. And waiting at the moment for the results of clearance — an Interpol check, etc. — I had it all before, but cause of promotion, etc — they are doing another one now — re fraud, insider trading, etc. I know everything is fine, I have a clean record, but it has to be gone through. When I start my new position, I will probably disappear from the forum for a while, as it will be too daunting — mentally. How is your new job going?

May be. I just feel for Evgenia a lot. Actually, there a lot of things about figure skating I didn't tell you. Evgenia had to close her instagram becase of the enourmous amounts of hatred against her. She has been through a lot, so I coudn't contain my happiness she did so well)
Actually, I don't cry when I watch figure skating. I was surprised myself

Here is her short program

I assure you if not Evgenia the hall would be empty. I'm glad she had such a warm wellcome there in Novgorod.

I know you will do fine. I bet it won't be easy in the begining. It wasn't easy for me too, but my new collegues are nice people, they seem to like me too. They helped me to deal with my new job.

Well, from what I can gather — she is kind of a figure skating celebrity, and celebrities — whichever field they are in — they don't just get fans, but haters too. I guess one just has to switch off all of that and soldier on. It must be very hard.

Well, it is psychological you know. A massive change. It is one thing when you front someone else and they take all the responsibility, it is quite another — when you have the responsibility on your own shoulders. And also — all of a sudden it becomes much more competitive at that level — not so much about friends any more or nice chatting at work, etc. It becomes a much less forgiving environment all of a sudden. I will need a lot of luck. People are changing as well, they are moving a lot of people around between our branches, of course some of them will be the same and I know them very well and has worked fine with them up to now, etc. It'll be allright.

It is. The problem is she always had a lot of haters from Korea and other foreign countires. But after she changed her coach she got a lot of haters from Russia too. Some not completely healthy people decided she somehow betraed Russia.
Actually, it is a traffic jam in Russian ladies figure skating. Many talented girls switch thier citizenship to represent France, Poland, Canada etc and it's ok.
Evenia didn't change her citizenship, she represents Russia. Even now after she had a devastating season, she is not a favourite anymore, I was reading live chat and almost half of Russian comments were spitiful. Seriously, I don't get it.

There is a lot of pseudo patriotic chauvinistic anti western propaganda going on in your country — maybe that has something to do with it.

Definitely. But figure skating in general isn't nationalistic type of sport. Usually people here don't stan a skater just because he represents your country. Only Korean fans were kind of sad exception to this rule. Many official youtube channels related to figure skating aren't available in Korea because of that. I don't want Russian fans to become like that.

P.S. Anyway all those turds who wished her to fall on her ass can go and f themselves now
