The hypocrisy of Cameron: pro-Putin Russian oligarchs give millions to Tory Party

This is precisely the phenomenon they told you about in films like Network News (assuming I’ve got the title right) and John Carpenter’s SF treatment of the same subject, They Live. There is no East and West anymore, just the relentless march of capitalists seeking more money by screwing the working and lower middle classes. This isn’t incidental.
