Georgia on my mind

In my Guardian blog this week, I referred to the traditional view that sport has taken the place of war between democracies (so where does that leave Russia vs Georgia?).

Now it looks as if we may have e-war, with reports that Russia’s first attacks on Georgia were online. Apparently, Georgia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs was “reduced to communicating through a Google-hosted blogging account”.

Perhaps their blog didn’t reach Sky News….

Mind you, we nearly had a little bit of Georgia here in Islington. One of the many barmy ideas of the old Labour administration was to flog off the old Finsbury town hall to the Republic of Georgia. Thankfully that didn’t happen; under the Lib Dems, Finsbury Town Hall was sold to Urdang Dance Academy instead and is now available for community use once more.
