I’m told Casino Royale is pretty good. It’s a shame, though, that life imitates art. The poisoning of ex-spy and dissident Alexander Litvinenko is pure Bond. Even the guy he was having tea with in London, Mr. Scaramella, sounds like he strokes a Persian cat.
All of which goes to prove that the Kremlin is one hell of a dodgy place. More mundane, but just as pathetic is the latest EU-Moscow spat, with Dr. Vlad threatening to ban all EU animal products. With control over gas imports into Europe, Russia is relishing it’s new power. The murder of a British citizen is a worrying turn.
