Putin Your Foot In It!

In Britain we could always rely on the Queen's husband, Prince Philip, for a little light relief in his ridiculous comments and remarks (my favourite, this being a Scottish blog, was his comment to a Scottish driving instructor: "How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test?" It seems that Russia has their own Prince Philip in Vlademir Putin. I've noticed some remarks by him in the past being less than, well, politically correct, but this story in The Sun, is hilarious:

He lashed out at the [Africa's] past after being challenged about his human rights’ record.

In an astonishing outburst, Mr Putin said: “We all know that African countries used to have a tradition of eating their own adversaries.

“We don’t have such a tradition or process or culture and I believe the comparison between Africa and Russia is not quite just.”

I burst out laughing reading that. Tony Blair, who was with him at the time, was left squirming with embarrassment. Scary thing is this man is in charge of a country with a huge nucler stock-pile. At least Prince Philip is powerless!!
