Pussy Riot new video - not great, but it is punk

Gawd bless 'em.  A group of very clever lassies.  Never mind the private-jets-against-climate-change people who've gotten onto the bandwagon, or the fact that when you get hold of this on The Guardian website you first have to listen to a cringing commercial for some pay-as-you go baloney.

The whole thing, from cathedral to trial to "penal colony" (whatever the foot-of-our-stairs that involves; nice touch of Kafka, though, eh?) is a work of art.

And don't let this Russian madness let us lose sight of the fact that the UK is currently governed by a set of neoliberal greedy bloody fruitcakes, either, mind.
