In this Sydney Morning Herald article (Spies of suburbia) I learned about a Russian spy ring that was busted last week and to my horror I discovered that these spooks travelled on fake British passports.
So has there been outrage and an outpouring of hatred against the Russian government in the British media? Has the Russian Ambassador been summonsed to meet the Foreign Minister? A call to expel Russian diplomats, break off diplomatic relations, obliterate Russia from the globe?
Not even a yawn.
[Passports are no more holy in this country where nobody seems to care how 36 blank Australian passports managed to come into a known crime family of Lebanese background this week.]
Suddenly, fake passports have become passe.
