We are not up against a revived Soviet Union. At most, Putin’s state is a puffer fish – poisonous, but not as big as you think.
As the Prime Minister told Putin last night: “We know what you are doing. And you will not succeed.”
Mark Francois: More women. More ethnic minorities. Medical testing reform. What must be done to raise army numbers.
