    "Nigel Farage and the Brexit party have voted against a European parliament resolution calling for stronger EU action to counter election meddling and Russian disinformation. "

    You can't make this up. Brexit party wants Russia to meddle with our politics more. I wonder why? Oh yeah, because they're fascist and corrupt and taking you all for fools, that's why.

    Personally, I'd go with the digestives. I'm saving the chocolate hobnobs for Oct 31st.

    The old reds under the beds rubbish.
    Merkal invites millions of foreigners into Europe and causes chaos next thing you know the Russians get the blame.

    Not very original is it, Blaming the Russians for Europes problems.
    Classic scapegoating, when in trouble with the electorate divert their attention by looking for an external enemy.

    I would imagine Ze Germans wouldn't want to upset the Ruskis too much given their increasing dependence on Ruski gas.
