Alexei Navalny Revisited
Peter Hitchens writes:
A reader asks me to revisit an article I wrote some years ago about Alexei Navalny, now being described by many British media as the 'opposition leader' in Russia.
As I show, Mr Navalny is not in fact the sort of person with whom the metropolitan liberals who write this stuff would normally associate.
Has their loathing of Vladimir Putin blinded them (as their loathing of Bashar al Assad blinded them) to the faults of his opponents?
