Don't be rude about Belarus, Boris!

In yesterday's Daily Telegraph, Boris Johnson claims that when it comes to 'governments changing their laws to suit the need of foreign billionaires', Britain is no better than 'Belize or Belarus'.
Well I don't claim to be an expert on Belize, but I do not something about Belarus- and if Mr Johnson can provide one example of a law changed there 'to suit the need of foreign billionaires' , then I'd quite happily send the MP for Henley a packet of his favourite Javanese cigars.
Belarus has been demonised in the West precisely because it does not change its laws 'to suit the need of foreign billionaires'. Instead, President Lukashenko- horror of horrors- puts the needs of the Belarus people first- which is why he recorded such an overwhelming election success in March.
