Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just came across this.  Pretty much sums it up:



My my how times change. Now again we see those evil, energy hogging Russkies for what they are. And suddenly, dissidents are right back in media fashion.

Today, UK's Labour Minister Peter Hain joined the chorus of Telegraph readers and declared that the `murky murder cast a shadow over Putin'. Moralising Peter Hain, by the way, just happens to be one of our Labour Ministers who refused to condemn Guantanamo Bay.

On second thoughts, maybe Litvinenko should get a Nobel Prize. He doesn't deserve one as much as a real dissident writer like Limonov. But Sasha's affair has exposed the hype and hypocrisy of the British media establishment like nothing else.
