Hands up if you felt a bit inadequate at your knowledge of Caucus politics when the Russian-Georgian conflict suddenly erupted this week? Embarrassingly, for somebody who prides themselves on knowing a bit about what’s going on in the world generally, I really had no idea where it all kicked off from.
Sadly, any newspaper coverage just left me more confused. I could grasp the picture of what was happening, by and large. I just had no idea why it had happened, and that, to me, is equally if not more important. Even by upping my news consumption, I was still left a little bit in the dark.
