THE subhuman depravity of Vladimir Putin’s invaders is plumbing new depths daily.
As his chaotic troops make a humiliating retreat from western Ukraine, the full extent of the carnage they left in their wake arises.
mass graves. women raped and murdered. Civilians, including children, were tortured, maimed, bound and then casually executed. Bodies thrown out in the street like yesterday’s garbage, some even with mines in booby traps.
How proud are the millions of Russians who sit back Putin since their strongman must be made up of “soldiers” whose genocidal atrocities are indistinguishable from those of the Nazis of World War II, whom they once helped defeat.
Some Western leaders may mistake Volodymyr Zelensky’s unlikely success in turning the bloody tide for an excuse to ease sanctions on Moscow and military aid Kyiv.
It would be wiser to follow them Boris Johnson’s trumpet call to take the initiativewhile all eyes are now on eastern Ukraine, where the atrocities are being taken on an even more revolting level.
We stand square behind the Prime Minister to give Zelensky the firepower he needs – including tanks – to crush Putin’s rabble of psychopathic cutthroats.
No blow hards
WITH an energy crisis putting a wrecking ball on household budgets, the dispute between ministers over wind turbines is as fruitful as two bald men fighting over a comb.
No solution will please everyone, and little in the government’s much-delayed energy security strategy this week will defuse our cost crisis any time soon.
But it is crucial that it puts Britain on the path to diverse and self-sufficient energy supplies in the coming decades.
That means renewable energy, including offshore AND onshore turbines; fracking to exploit our shale gas reserves; and new nuclear power plants unaffected by foreign ownership.
Most importantly, once a direction is established, stick with it and move on.
We are in the current mess partly because of the hesitation and unwillingness of successive governments. It is imperative that future generations be treated better.
IF quantitative drinking isn’t already a term in the economists’ lexicon, it should be by now.
New figures show beer sales, which plummeted during lockdown, have almost returned to pre-pandemic levels over the past year, with Britons taking an extra 1.1 BILLION pints to win the hearts of struggling pub owners at large country to please.
And with fewer restrictions this year, along with a World Cup, there’s nothing stopping us from boosting the nation’s Gugged-Down Pints (GDP) even further.
Rebuilding the economy pint by pint is a difficult task. . . but someone has to do it.
