Re: On supposed anti-corruption heros...what's Lifeboat folks take on Navalny?
From what I've seen it's a bit of both; he's a dodgy, yank-sponsored, uber-nationalist who isn't anywhere near as popular in Russia as the m.s.m. would have people believe (always describing him as "THE Russian opposition leader" when in reality he's a minor figure for Russians. In Russia "anti-corruption" seems to mean "not corrupt with the same people as the other guy".
One thing is certain, his "Novichok" attack was complete and utter bollocks and didn't even seem to have been thought up by the spooks but felt like "his people" decided it would be a good move and tried it on and then everyone else tried to play catch up with the narrative.

...no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party...So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
