Those craaaaazzzy Russians...

I don't really want to talk about Putin and the Kids from Nashi, I've just eaten.

Apart from that Lugovoi geezer standing for Zhirinovsky's Liberal Democrats, the only thing interesting about Sunday's Russian Duma elections was a sight that made me fall off the sofa whilst slumped in front of Channel 4 News: Leading dissident Gary Kasparov being interviewed with ol' Eduard Limonov of the National Bolshevik Party at his side - talk about strange bedfellows! Limonov's been nicked more times than Peter Tatchell. If you've never heard of the NBP, google 'em. They're entertaining.
