There wasn’t much feedback on yesterday’s ‘blog, it received no ‘likes’ – which has made it about as popular as student at Oxford University who was previously educated at Brixton Comprehensive and then Lambeth College… or indeed, about as popular as student at Oxford University who was previously educated at Cambridge University.
I was a bit surprised that I didn’t get any correspondence from people moaning about the cold weather – although I’m guessing that no-one was able to send me messages because it had snowed a bit (and in any event, the majority of everyone’s time was been taken up Tweeting and updating Facebook status to say that it was snowing).
Anyhow, it’s time to move on to today’s ‘blog, which was going to be about England’s shock eight-nil win last night against San Marino, but then as I was about to start writing the ‘blog, it was announced that Boris Berezovsky had been found dead – this also coincides with the tragic news that Piers Morgan is alive and well…
But who exactly is Boris Berezovsky? Well, I don’t really know – although I can confirm that it’s far easier to spell his first name than it is to spell his surname.
He’s also a Russian billionaire (which on the scale of ‘being a shady character’ ranks around the same area as a mobile phones salesman based in the Middle East) and he had a massive falling out with Vladimir Putin… and he’s now dead… and unsurprisingly there’s been new research revealed today which has shows that bears like to defecate in the woods…
Do I want to state on a public ‘blog that I believe that the circumstances surrounding the death of an enemy of the Russian state is in any way suspicious?
Because it wasn’t suspicious, clearly.
Obviously it was the case than a man who had survived previous assassination attempts died whilst having a bath (there were suspicions that Berezovsky had been taking drugs – although tests show that he was clean…).
Another recent controversy involving Berezovsky was his bitter legal battle with Roman Abramovich… Berezovsky claimed that Abramovich forced him to sell some shares at a ridiculously low value… Abramovich then came back with many claims against Berezovsky… these were refuted strongly by Berezovsky who claimed the allegations were disgusting and insulting… particularly the suggestion that Berezovsky has been lined up as the next Chelsea manager…
