Murdoch goes where the money is. The SNP shrilly demanding the devolution and subsequent dismemberment of the BBC probably got his attention.

Report that Sturgeon met with Murdoch then concealed the meeting. Wonder what the payback will be for his support in the election ?
Murdoch only goes with the side that looks like winning. Personally I couldn't give a stuff what he puts in his papers.

The point was more that Ukraine isn't in NATO (and arguably the current trouble kicked off when they decided they wanted to join). If they had been members, it seems unlikely that Russia would have got involved.

Talk about past British imperial misconduct is not relevant to this discussion. The fact that Russia is increasingly acting like a one party state is if anything reason to be cautious at hastily decommissioning a deterrent specifically aimed at such a state.

No, wasn't serious with that example, caught a large fish there......... but plenty of examples of British self-interest, mostly historical OK. But Russia is an odd country developmentally anyway.  Certainly isn't a modern democracy like ours, seems to be more and more resembling a one party state that allows no dissent.  TBH what they did in Chechnya is far, far worse than what's going on in the Ukraine and we did sweet FA about that.
 I do think that historical self-interest is comparable with Russian self-interest in the Ukraine. Most people in that neck of the woods consider themselves Russian, I believe. Don't they speak Russian?

  I've often wondered about Gibraltar - what's that all about in today's Europe?
