Re: Banks and Russia

Somewhat noticeable in the accounts to July 2015 is that trade creditors increased to  £3,475,060 from £808,736, a  330% increase, whilst a fixed and floating charge seemingly for a long term loan was given the bank mid 2014. Given accounts are not required to be submitted to Companies House until 9 months after the year end, may be NWB were unaware. Definitely a hmmm situation, if only in my mind.

RT also has withdrawn from  Freesat quite recently.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: Banks and Russia

Something akin to 'Hypernormalisation' perhaps.

The film is a long haul but crikey, it makes you think about banks, politics and East West relationships, along with a fair dose about our use of the internet and the like.

...... and if you do manage to watch it, consider this contemporary report afterwards. The mind boggles! Crazy2

Re: Banks and Russia

And the gears of the propaganda machine squeal back into life, "Britain closed our bank accounts! We must all hate Britain by order of the state!"...

 

Thing is, I'm sure on both sides, you ask the people what they think of the politics involved, they'd probably not really give a hoot because it's the politicians that stir up trouble with other countries, the people just want to live in peace and not have to hate others just because "the government says so", and of course, breeding hate based on the leaders' beliefs (and remember, tinpot poo tin is an ex-Soviet Russia KGB oppressor, so is psychologically damaged by his past) is what leads to war, whether it's a small border skirmish or fully fledged world war...

 

And who suffers the most in these wars? The people, not the politicians...
