I think it is just a piece of harmless telly comedy. If anything, it takes away from Putin's image of a villain, which the press here has created. It is just a bit of a laugh — nothing wrong with that, is there? They laugh their heads off at the politicians of all kind here — all the time.

I didn't know RT got the hump about it. We had a similar show «Куклы».
As for me BBC «Putin» at least should have a bit of Russian accent)

Thanks, I'll watch it in the evening.

P.S. After listening to the debate... I'm on Farage side. I was surprised to hear that Cable talks about staying in the EU as if people didn't vote for Brexit years ago. As if it doesn't matter. It reminds me of the situation here in Russia when some minor politician not from United Russia party becomes a mayor in some distant city or town. FSB and other officials can turn against him and he might end up in prison just two months after elections. They do it because they don't care about people's vote.

We have gold Ferraris all over the place in London at the moment — rich Arabs from Dubai and Kuwait coming here for their summer holidays, apparently — the cars are literally wrapped in gold — I took a pic in South Kensington today — after another meeting again with a client from the Middle East (I will put out the pic) — it is the second meeting and it is going well

You shouldn't be surprised in the slightest re Vince Cable. Lib Dems are pro EU through and through — always have been (more so than Labour or Conservatives), but they are very weak at the moment — they don't have any viable group in Westminster. And they do have the right to have their viewpoint, which is totally polar to Farage and other Hard Brexiteers. In fact, in the local elections it was the Lib Dems and some Independent candidates who capitalised on the indecisive Westminster establishment. You see what happened was — yeah, the Brexiteers won the vote in 2016, but narrowly. We also have a lot of Remainers here as well, their views also should be represented. However, neither Remainers nor Leavers are happy with the main parties, cause to them it comes across as if the main parties are incapable of doing the job — any job — be it staying in or leaving properly, like - "goodness knows what they stand for these days" (truth of the matter is there are deep divisions on the Brexit issue within the main parties themselves, so much so - that they literally paralyze their ability to follow any kind of political agenda, it is limbo). That is why this EU election vote and any votes from now on in will be polarised votes by people who will support those politicians who have a clear position on the Brexit issue and the clear agenda of implementing it — unlike May or Corbyn. The majority of the votes will again be pro Brexit of course, nothing will change there. A lot of the Remainers are as radicalised as Leavers and can't accept the other point of view, can't accept the Leave vote. The country is divided. It is not good, but this is the truth of it — this is what is happening here.

Ferrari is beautiful. But the habbit to wrap everything in gold is a bit tasteless, don't you think?

British Ambassador in Ukraine responded to Zelensky's words «Старушка Великобритания»

Your officials do have a sense of humor after all
You know here in Russia people often refer to British humor with sarcasm.

And the term «British scientists» became a meme

I bet Kremlin controlled media played a big role in spreading it.

No, I don't. I think that Ferrari looks very classy wrapped up in gold. In gold foil actually, it is a very expensive process apparently. But I generally like yellow gold colour, metallic yellow gold colour. I even have an OPI nail varnish that is that colour and contains actual gold in it.

Only very dumb and not sophisticated at all people could have believed the Kremlin propaganda that the British humour is somehow inferior and the British scientists are not that smart. The Russians really Do live in the parallel universe. The British sense of humour is considered the wittiest in the world, and their science — the most advanced in the world. The Russians have a very long way to go to catch up with either.

She should have resigned two years ago. She wasted too much time and nearly ruined the Conservative Party in the process. Her whole sad Premiership did nothing but ruined what was left of trust here between the public and Westminster. She was very tearful and apologetic apparently. I didn't hear it when it happened, I was at work, but everyone was talking about it, saying — «Good riddance» and that.

The favourites with the bookies for the Tory Leader are Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab — you remember, our chief Brexit Secretary who resigned over May accepting the EU demands re the Irish border issue. I think he will be even better than Boris. Boris is a bit of a clown, he has a lot of enemies in the Tory Party as well. Dominic Raab is a new fresh face, etc. I hope he will be the next Tory Leader. And he is tough, and he knows the EU very well — he was a very tough negotiator, I think he looks very promising and would make a great PM.

That meme doesn't mean your science is inferior. But there are plenty of articles in our media about some weird and useless inventions by British scientists.

If you think I'm kidding just google «Британские ученые». You will get plenty of links like this one

Well, to be honest Britain in Russian meida is like Russia in British media. Evil hostile state, inflaming civil wars and other conflicts all over the globe together with the US etc.
