Putin resigning?

Rumours of Putin resigning as might have Parkinsons. Not seeing it all over the news though, would have thought this was seismic activity on the political stage.

Even ganglords get doddery. I thought he was planning Thirty More Years!

Sadly think it may be a Reddit rumour got out of hand.

He's not resigning. He's already dead.

However awful a person Putin may be I wouldn't wish Parkinson's on him, it's what killed my father and it's a dreadful disease.

Vlad is a "known quantity" though.

I am sorry to hear about your father.

Putin: meh.

Perhaps he just needs a pick-me-up. I'm sure Porton Down can oblige.

Oh, so that's why they're looking at life immunity from prosecution for ex-presidents.

Putin out?

In?

Shake it all about?

#9 isn't BS, it's in today's Graun.

Maybe he’s lost the US election.

RosyLovelady - 06 Nov 2020 10:11:57 (#15 of 34)

Nice one, Captain.

He’s standing on a hotel roof. He’s Putin on the Ritz.

RosyLovelady - 06 Nov 2020 10:35:18 (#17 of 34)

Ra ra Ras Putin.
