Russia, UK: Olga Freer's Book

The UK’s Daily Mail reviews “a book written by a young Russian woman about her experiences living in London” – and White Sun of the Desert reviews the book review: “[…] it is little wonder that her book is popular in Moscow, as thousands of Russian women will be reading with glee about how fat the British women are and how awful their cooking is. But I’d also hope that plenty of Brits get around to reading it, because the book – coupled with its popularity in Moscow – will almost certainly reveal as much about Russia as it does about Britain.”

    Please. If she hates it so much, why did she spend her childhood in Russia dreaming of going to the UK. If Russia is so much better (I’m sure most of the world would disagree), why doesn’t she move back? Obviously, it must be better in the UK which makes her hawking a book about how bad it is ridiculous.

    She should be deported (she already admitted to working illegally).
