If you are on Facebook, you may wish to join the group "Craig Murray's blog should return" and recommend it to your friends. You may also write comments on the wall or post recent news. The news I would like to read is the return of Craig Murray's blog.

It's curious, isn't it, that some people find it very hard to get visas to ths country. Why are visa authorities so slow to help bona fide students, tourists and asylum seekers when Alisher Usmanov is apparently welcome in Britain?

Buying a British football club is chicken-feed if you have billions to squander.

But why do it?

Well, perhaps you really are a football fan.

Perhaps.
But, if so, why not buy a club in your own country and buy the best footballers on earth to play for it?
After all, although every man doesn't have his price, most men, alas, will sooner or later take the shilling.

But if you need a guaranteed reason to enter Britain easily and whenever you like, owning one of its major football clubs would be a good way to do it.

And that would mean you could come and go across Britain's borders and thus be at liberty to organise within the EU and also in the US your normal business - crime in general and fraud, money-laundering and murder in particular.

And that is how post-Soviet Russian gangsterism (which makes Al Capone, Legs Diamond and Bugs Malone look as though they really were the children who played them in the film) has entered the UK.

And if one of your specialities at home is murdering journalists who try to expose you, you won't think twice about using the heaviest and most dishonourable hammers of the English legal system to silence critics in Britain, nor to gratuitously dismiss some of the most talented people on earth who have had the misfortune to find themselves in your employ, nor to resort to your Russian habits for the disposal of those who won't desist from annoying you.

After all, your objective isn't to run your football club successfully, nor to be persona grata with the media, is it?
It's to give you the access to run your real business.

If the police and the intelligence services are serious about stopping Russian murders in Britain, they could start by withdrawing a few peoples' visas and placing in judicially-supervised trust the UK property of such people.

This has gone too far and, if not stopped, will go a lot further.

Usmanov and his legal team at Schillers have blundered.
The silencing of Craig Murray's Blog and the collective outrage in response to that has extended rather than silenced the voices of those who would resist the will of the obscenely rich to stifle debate, seek to protect their questionable reputations and modify the truth to present a fictional persona.
Usmanov and his like use the power of law and of fear to silence dissent from their world view and block the exposure of their history and influence.
But let us not become too preoccupied by this diversion.
In the UK (and in the US) we have governments who have silenced dissent and protest through the rather more effective means of manufacturing the laws which protect their actions.
They delight in the surveillance and tracking of all “citizens” (aka Subjects) in the rapidly expanding database state.
“What have you got to hide?”
Indeed. What do Gordon Brown, David Miliband and other Ministers have to conceal that they so fear protest and dissent?
What is the agenda they pursue?
Why does the government need to know so much about its Subjects?
Why do they so fear exposure, dissent, criticism?
Be under no illusion. The collective will and direction of the Government led by these people is rather more threatening (and rather more professionally executed) than the antics of a rich Uzbekistani thug.
