EU sanctions on Russia pointless

IT is really exasperating to see the government pressing the EU to 'punish' Russia with economic sanctions.

There can only be three consequences: (i) everyone is worse off; (ii) nothing will change as regards Crimea; (iii) in a couple of years, we will all move on and the sanctions will be lifted – an exercise... to make the political leaders feel less impotent than they are.
