Poisoned in London!

Just in time for the new James Bond flick, the Russian FSB (ex-KGB) has begun behaving like the cold war never ended.

There's nothing surprising about Russian politics being a bit Byzentine, or about their foreign policy being a it hard-minded, but this is the stuff of bad paperbacks. An asassination on foreign soil (a former imperial capital at the heart of the EU, no less) is pretty brazen stuff. If this is the price of letting an ex-spook govern a former superpower, we'd all best hold on tight.
