Every damn word of this from the Scottish journalist and broadcaster Neil Oliver, who said this in the introduction to his GB News show tonight:

This articulates well why I have been so reluctant to jump on board the simplistic pro-war narrative that has been in the US media all week. Oliver is plainly no admirer of Vladimir Putin, but he questions what we have allowed ourselves in the West to become. To support the valiant Ukrainian patriots fighting the Russian invader is not to say that we believe in what our leaders, political and otherwise, are doing in our countries (or rather, to our countries). Please, watch Oliver’s eight-minute discourse, which led his broadcast in the UK this evening. It’s very powerful stuff.
