What it does is potentially prevent Russia sailing into or out of the Baltic sea, which is a problem as they've found in the Black Sea.
Good luck sinking Gotland or Denmark.

there's inter-party preferential deals.

I doubt a lot of people put too much effort into figuring out an optimal listing themselves. Probably lots that just vote based on the best looking photographs or least foreign sounding names.
red wine on the walls and people getting legless drunk during the heaviest phase of lockdowns.Boris Johnson has dismissed the idea of an alcohol ban in No 10 in the wake of the damning findings of the Sue Gray inquiry.
After the prime minister was asked about the suggestion during a meeting of the 1922 Committee of Tory MPs, a party source told PA: “He made the point he’s not a big drinker himself but had alcohol been banned in 1940 we might not have won the Second World War.
“The fact about No 10 is there is an alcohol policy that now sets guidelines to its use.”
He added: “there’s a recognition that at the end of a really long, hard day .. the remedy for decompressing ... is to have a glass of wine or a beer.
“So, there’s recognition that part of decompressing at the end of a long day involves having a drink, but not checking out at 4am absolutely legless, having been rude to a member of staff, having thrown up over a sofa.”
The source added the prime minister was due to have “an audience with the Queen” this evening virtually following the publication of the Sue Gray partygate investigation.
these people were drinking every week, sometimes multiple times, not 'leaving the office' until 3-4am on a regular basis.

Oligarch-Warlord Tony Blair wasn't a big drinker and look at all the people he killed.

sunak was only fined and implicated once. he lives next door, not in the party residence. and that residence was overwhelmingly categorized by a revelling atmosphere. they were smuggling in alcohol in briefcases and safes for months on end, ffs. literally conniving and conspiring to have boozy parties. messages sent over the whatsapp group: 'don't walk out the front door with any wine bottles visible'. alcohol is a MAJOR component of this entire furore. i doubt they would have hung around until 4am every friday playing dungeons & dragons with sparkling water.Sunak doesn't even drink, look at his behaviour.

Christopher got his soft drinks of choice and look how that worked out.
uziq wrote:yes, soft drinks, famously associated with anti-social behaviour and increased rates of lawlessness. no, that's alcohol. but great deflection.
Way to miss what I said.

devising some of the most draconian lockdown rules ever seen in peacetime and then flagrantly breaching them, repeatedly, intentionally, just so that you can get pissed on wine at the office every friday, though ... that's something else. everyone else went without 'works drinks' or even drinks at their fucking relatives' funerals/wakes, didn't they?
way to miss the entire point of 'party-gate'.
Hancock got the boot for lockdown breaches for canoodling.

totally normal behaviour in the workplace."The event lasted for a number of hours. There was excessive alcohol consumption by some individuals. One individual was sick. There was a minor altercation between two other individuals," said the report released on Wednesday.
At the time, large gatherings were banned to help reduce the spread of infections.
