    “These girls are young. Very young. For their safety, I can’t say how young, but imagine how young you think they might be. Are you imagining it? They’re about five years younger than that.”
    Okay, they’re 12.
    “When they arrived I wondered, for a second, who let a couple of moody work experience kids into a clandestine meeting.”
    Yeezus West, 12 year olds do internships in the UK?!

    I always figured them at 15-16 at the youngest, which is about  5-10 years younger than the leadership.

    And all this talk about hidden male leadership is insulting. What’s so implausible about young women getting fired up and taking action?

    AND FREE PUSSY RIOT! Kickstarter has rejected my video about hiring helicopters and mercenaries to bust them out of prison.

      It might be a Russian attitude. They’re probably not used to this sort of thing yet.

      At the time the Soviet Union was dissolved, I was living in Portland and you couldn’t swing a cat without hitting a 15-25 year old woman doing guerrilla theater. Whereas in Soviet Russia, cat swings you.

      I’m sure it doesn’t help that they’re up against the Orthodox Church, which is basically trying to return to Czarism.

    They were interviewed on BBC Radio 4′s Today programme last week. Can still be listened to here.
