Dear Today Programme, 

Did Jim Naughtie really just say the Russian government's exclusion of transgender people and 'pyromaniacs' from driving was a 'nice little bizarre item'??!! (with a chuckle in his voice)? And he's talking to us from Paris!! reporting on the murderers who hate freedom. 

Has Naughtie not heard of the Nazi laws which began by excluding Jews from owning pets and bicycles and ended in.... 

Shame on Jim Naughtie. There is nothing 'nice' about the Russian government. Please, someone tell him.
