Why we’ve got a man crush on the head of all Russia:
In August Russia experienced the worst wild fires in its history. They were so bad it drove Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to climb into a fire-fighting plane and take to the skies. Footage showed him pushing a button to unleash water on blazing forest fires about 120 miles southeast of Moscow. After hitting the button, Putin looked at the pilot and asked, “Was that okay?” The response: “A direct hit!” That’s a politician we can get on board with. Here’s nine reasons why Putin beats Cameron…
1/ He’s been known to take his labrador, Koni, into meetings with him.
2/ He began his career in the counter intelligence department of the KGB.
3/ He is a 6th dan in judo and has co-authored a book called Judo With Vladimir Putin.
4/ He’s a keen biker and rides a Harley-Davidson trike.
5/ He once dismissed accusations that he had a secret personal fortune with the line, “They have picked this in their noses and have smeared this across their pieces of paper. This is how I view this.”
6/ Cameron does press photos on a bike; Putin goes fishing, with his top off.
7/ He can fly fighter planes.
8/ He helped tag and track a Siberian tiger.
9/ When he swims, he does the super-tough butterfly.
