Gearóid Ó Colmáin on Putin and Ukraine

Gearóid Ó Colmáin is an Irish journalist and political analyst based in Paris. His work focuses on globalisation, geopolitics and class struggle. Here’s a 45 minute interview with him this evening (1st March) on the Richie Allen Show. I found this interesting because he really delves into who Vladimir Putin really is, and what’s actually happening in Ukraine.

The communication dropped out twice during this interview. Hence I’ve edited out the dead parts of audio and put the resulting 45 minute interview on my blog. The original broadcast can be found here.

    Lots of food for thought there Rob. The notion that a gulag society is looming is very sobering. I didn’t quite grasp why Xi or Putin would ” do anything” about this. Perhaps the Western interventionist mentality? If the West is due for a decline there’s no incentive whatsoever for other parts of the world to try and mitigate that. if they propose to get in the popcorn and care for their own populations good luck to them.

    The disgusting E.U. is up to its neck in duplicity, they along with the U.S.A. and U.K. have been preparing Ukraine as a destructive force to break Russia.

    The game is afoot.

    On a slightly lighter note, England has ditched all covid restrictions, you no longer have to isolate, even if you have or think you have covid, soon we will even stop testing for covid.

    Cost of Living going through the roof, I suppose we will blame this all on Russia?
    If Europe refuses to purchase Russian grain and Russian oil and Russian gas, we will be shooting ourselves through both feet.
    Still, at least the speculators will do well.

    Rob, you do not mention the Yellow Vests.

    How is their movement going?

    23,234,062 people have had covid in France – that’s about one in three of the population.

    Covid restrictions in England have virtually come to a close.
    As far as I know, you just now just wear masks if you go to hospital or visit a doctor or go on a bus or train.
    If you think you have covid, you now no longer have to do anything about unless you become ill.

    It is so last year, that almost nobody is interested in covid these days, more important things to concern like cost of living crisis, which is already the worse, since 1955!!!

      Freddy, it looks like things are going to get a lot worse over the coming weeks. All these manic sanctions will effect the West just as much as Russia.

      If you’re not already doing so I would suggest that you start hoarding tinned goods, etc.

      • Freddy says:

        Blimey Rob, I first starting hoarding tinned goods for Brexit, as we were told that our U.K. economy would crash – it did not, in fact, it is growing, who would have thought that?
        Then after almost eating all my tinned goods, I started hoarding again, for the pandemic.
        Now the pandemic is winding down, so is my tinned food hoard.
        How often should we be forced to go through these cycles of fear?
