Disappointed I didn’t make the list

Stuff reports:

Russia has blacklisted 32 more Kiwis – including force leaders, mayors, councillors, academics and journalists – in response to what the embassy has described as a “Russophobic agenda”.

The Russian Ministry-issued statement said those included on the list had been banned from entering Russia on an “indefinite basis” in response to New Zealand government sanctions applied to “an increasing number of Russian citizens”. …

Those banned include Matthew Hooton and Josie Pagani. I’m pretty pissed off that Matthew and Josie make the list, and missed out.

On the other hand it is hilarious that the Russian Government thinks banning Matthew Hooton from travelling to Russia will persuade the Government to go easier on Russia. If anything, it will have the opposite effect!
