Quote of the day 17th March 2022

"Vladimir Putin’s television address to his own people on Wednesday has given the world a glimpse into the abyss. We can now see more clearly than ever the lengths to which the dictator’s mendacity will carry him and the depths of his depravity. The manner is no less chilling than the message: the dead, unblinking eyes, the puffed-up, pasty face, the robotic, menacing delivery, with only an occasional flick of the wrist to add emphasis when referring to his enemies. This is the gaze of a cold-blooded killer."
