OH NO! Joe, 32-year-old plumber, is in tears this afternoon since finding out that he has been blacklisted by the Russian government. He was in the closing stages of planning his 4-week summer vacation to Russia with stops in St Petersburg, Moscow and Vladivostok. Now, those plans have been teared into pieces as he scrambles to figure out where else in the world he could possibly travel to. The lesson learnt? Joe now understands that he needs to be very careful with his words and not criticise dictators who continue pursuing a war with no purpose but with the effect of killing tens of thousands of innocent people.
