I rarely take an interest in world afairs.
It’s of little consequence to me who does what in which country unless it has a remote chance of interfering with life at the Manor. Selfish, maybe, but I just don’t care.
The latest spat between Putin and the west caused me minor concern. If the shit hit the fan then the first and obvious casualty would be gas supplies. This in turn would reflect down into everyday prices for everything else, as it is doing anyway. I don’t use gas [I hate the stuff] but I do use other things.
The chance of all out war doesn’t bother me too much. I lived through the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis so it’s really just old hat. It’s two bullies in the playground threatening each other with each afraid to throw the first punch as they know they will pulverise each other into a bloody pulp and both will end up in A&E.
My micky is bigger than your micky so nya nya nya!.
So having seen each other mickies they have possibly decided it wasn’t worth fighting over. Is the Ukraine really worth the hassle?
Or maybe Putin is pulling his army back so they don’t get caught in the first salvo of missiles he’s about to launch?
There’s rarely a dull moment.
