The Way We Are Perceived

Had my eyes open tonight in a conversation with Kaspars Varpins ( VB’s man on the ground at Blackpool)

He’s made the observation that in Latvia the perception is that the U.K.’s role in tackling Russia is a game changer and that had it not been for us Ukraine would’ve capitulated to Putin

He also said without doubt that we’ve done more than everything else including the US

BTW they are on war footing training to fight

Yes B 'liar' J is the most popular statesman in the world, but only in the Ukraine - in fact people like me, who really disagree with the 'let's cause a war with someone as it might save my popularity and PM'ship' wish he would base himself asap in E Ukraine, ptrferably right on the front line.

He's good at spending our cash in wars we have to support in many ways, but not as openly as some in the UK Government seem to think they speak for. We used to live in a democracy, now we have popularity private votes and the democracy at times which seems to match that of ermmm... Russia !

To be honest I’m not too sure what I think about what they think

What I didn’t realise was how overwhelmingly positive our role is perceived in Eastern Europe ( Russia excepted )

Sounds about right to me, I’d imagine those ukraine folk have more to worry about than a birthday cake during lock down😯
Boris will go down in history as the man that saved Ukraine and deserves all the plaudits that come his way 👍🏻

We do live in a democracy it's just that people who disagree with the outcome of a vote convince themselves it's not democratic.

Was in Krakow in April and there were US troops all over the show. Met a Ukrainian refugee who greeted me and the missus like celebs - just because we were British. Was going on and on about Boris but I was too interested in the sesh and the Grand National to be bothered indulging him.
