Ukrainian Borscht

Last-ditch peace efforts in Eastern Ukraine look set to collapse, as its government becomes more worried about those people located in cities like Lllichivs, Boryspil and Pryluky.


The United Nations don’t seem to be doing much; perhaps if the former Eastern Block nation is lucky they’ll be sent an emergency consignment of vowels to help out from the intergovernmental organization.


If you do see any refugees knocking about, make them some Ukrainian Borscht by frying off some crumbled sausage meat into a hot pan. In a separate pot add half a pint of water, followed by the cooked sausage, then the beats and about 20 minutes later the carrots, potatoes and another fifteen minutes later the cabbage, a tin of tomatoes, fried onion and tomato paste.

Allow to sit for a further ten minutes; add seasoning at the end if needed.


Should we get an influx of renegade displaced person’s, one wonders where they’ll go.

If recent reports are to be believed, Britain largest growing city (Heathrow airport) is full.  Perhaps the newcomers could all become castaways on Boris Island?
