True story, I knew a lad lived in a flat who had a bedroom for his horticultural interests, I phoned him when he was at home and said "Mate, make sure your extraction is on point, the bizzies are flyi

£54 million ..peanuts compared to what the oil and energy companies are ripping us of for ..Shell £9BILLION profit in the second quarter , BP £6BILLION profit second quarter , Exon £15BILLION profit inthe second quarter , the highest quarterly profit ever recorded by an oil company ..that alone is almost five times the $3.4 billion the US has given aid to Ukraine …

In just the last twelve weeks just these three oil companies have taken £30BILLION profit ..that’s without all the other oil and energy companies all racking up record profits ..these global companies are rinsing us big time .

Never forget war is a rich mans racket. This winter ordinary people in europe will struggle to heat there homes and pay there bills and the elite will be come more wealthy , just like they did during the covid lockdown .

The Arms industry along with the Energy industry must be rubbing their hands ..Can you imagine the funding and rebuilding contracts that will be on offer ..All the aid being given won’t be without strings I’m sure ..

Putin is now to conscript (mobilise) 300k reservists to bolster operations in Ukraine. I'm led to believe that reservists in the Russian sense are former conscripts. Not voluntary part timers like in the West, or even former professional soldiers.

I think he's increased the punishments for desertion, surrender and looting too.

My view is that any reservists who have so far resisted the immense pressure on them to sign up won't be willing to go. This could be the turning point of a revolution. Putin's speech was delayed for over two hours and was watered down from what had been leaked before. The Kremlin are reported to be at war with themselves.

The equivalent in the UK would be the regular reserve (ex forces) being pulled from their project management and landscaping jobs to be given a quick refresher course and sent to war. It's unthinkable really.

Miss out the refresher course and that's about it. Straight to the fighting units.

Flights from Moscow are fully booked and neighbouring countries have said that they will not give sanctuary to fleeing conscripts. Apart from anything else they will struggle to equip, arm and feed them on the front lines.

We need to give this dude a way out now, the politicians have Ukraine in their pocket, they ain’t never paying this back in a month of Sundays…..mineral rights all round chaps, cheers 🥂 

Allow Putin to save some face, let’s not have an attack of hubris and try and do in Russia……Russia is historically the rock that military threats break on ! 
 

Our politicians picked this war, now let’s fashion an exit.

Completely agree, except I don't think the West is trying to do in Russia. They're just taking the opportunity to degrade them in neutral territory by proxy. At any time Russia can withdraw to the safety of their sovereign territory safe from military attack from or supported by the West. Those are the time served rules of this great game that everyone understands.

Putin is likely trying to twist this to make it appear that the West has legitimately broken this rule, by way of having the Donbass legitimised as Russian sovereign territory. Whether he truly would treat attacks on the Donbass the same as attacks on Russia-actual is yet to be seen, nonetheless creating that illusion is useful as an escalatory tactic or even just to create confusion.

But fundamentally, not 'beating' Russia too hard and allowing them to take some sort of 'win' is probably essential in the Ukraine strategy. I've said that from the beginning. If Ukraine started leathering Moscow, Western aid would dry up immediately.
