End of the USSR

There is another reason to celebrate Boxing Day and it is that 23 years ago today the USSR finally collapsed. The most brutal and oppressive country of all time finally ceased to be on the 26th December 1990. Last night, if you were living 23 years ago, you would have seen Gorbachev announce his office was now defunct and the Soviet Flag flying on top of the Kremlin for the last time. Its just a shame Putin seems to be taking Russia backwards, which is terrible.

I would end this article here but apparently celebrating the end of tyranny is something some people wish to argue about. Looks like some members of the CF national executive might not be so Conservative after all.

At least the CF Cold War had one day of truce.
