I just found the whole thing embarrassing, it shows how few grown ups there are on both sides.

Let’s be honest though, if a country in Eastern Europe was being invaded by an agressor like in World War Two, Johnson and his lot would say, nope no interest to me.

They would follow the example of one of their previous leaders.

I've just been watching The True Glory, which I'd recorded from TPTV.

It didn't pull its punches in showing real, dead people, twisted and burnt.

Maybe the headline writers should watch it.
