But read on! I think, possibly, it gets better. In fact, I'm finding it very hard to pick my favourite line of this article (from Pravda) but I think it might have to be: Ksenia did not tell the officers that she was the winner of Miss Russia and Miss World contests, that her image was used to advertise the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow. The modesty! The grace! Ah Ksenia, so unjustly suspected of terrorism (in fact she had her bag searched), you have been wronged by those cheeky Welsh customs officers. On behalf of Great Britain, and all our customs officers, I can only apologise. › Parasites or pioneers?
