    • He’s a damn good bloke, but he didn’t think this one through. Ukrainians understandably might conclude that protecting Finland is somehow prioritized over Ukraine.

  1. Screw NATO and the EU. I think the new alliance is Britain, Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia maybe with Moldavia and Romania. Finland is welcome to join as they have a history of being good fighters who don’t back down.

What is your opinion?
