as police target Putin enablers

Do the police in the UK really have a policy to "target Putin enablers"

If someone wore a Putin t-shirt in London would they get arrested?

No.

Any more tuckeresque questions?

considering Russia’s history of illegal activities on British soil (poisonings & assassinations) they are legitimate targets

There’s enough Russian money laundering crime to keep a task force ten times the size busy for a decade.

One can only hope the British rid themselves of the track-suit clique, seize their laundered funds (and properties) and use the gaudy gold chains around their necks to pay for much more utilitarian leg chains when shipping them back to mama Russia.

Much in favour of hobbling Putin's war machine though I am, London didn't mind laundering Russian oligarchs' ill-gotten gains for decades.

A very valid point. One would hope we will all learn a lesson from this.

I am dubious unfortunately.

Not yet but it is probably coming.

I mean the West freedom is quickly becoming no different than China or Russia, to the point even the wrong pronoun can get you arrested or fined.

Look at the head of the IMF praising China in a recent interview.

So don't be surprised if you get a knock on the door for a comment that the government of the UK , USA Canada, EU Don't like.

Is there some kind of topical random word generator function in place of coherent comments that I haven’t noticed yet?

Who in their right mind would do that ? Arrested.. no. Laughed at ... yes.

Although I do remember a few years ago Putin was considered a bit of a gay icon because of all his cheesy, macho photoshoots so you would see the odd Putin calendar or poster around Soho.

Probably coming? ‘the West freedom’? Sure, ok. Let’s check back in on that later.

How many people do you think will be arrested in London in the future for wearing a Putin t-shirt? What’s your probable timeline?
