No really, it's brilliant, let's ANNOUNCE our coup

Billionaires do everything differently, including telegraphing their violent palace coups:

The Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky has told the Guardian he is plotting the violent overthrow of President Putin from his base in Britain after forging close contacts with members of Russia's ruling elite.
In comments which appear calculated to enrage the Kremlin, and which will further inflame relations between London and Moscow, the multimillionaire claimed he was already bankrolling people close to the president who are conspiring to mount a palace coup.
Of course, this could all be some publicity stunt for a Russian version of "The Apprentice," in which a kooky billionaire violently deposes a different Russian leader every week.
