unknownpoliticalobject:

The UK has just appointed “David Rutley (MP)” head of the Ministry for Food Management. You know, like the one that was responsible for food rationing after WW2.

EU chief attacks USSR comparison and urges UK …

EU chief attacks USSR comparison and urges UK to compromise:

“The president of the European council, Donald Tusk,
condemned Jeremy Hunt’s “unwise and insulting” comparison of the EU to
the Soviet Union, as he piled pressure on the British government to
compromise for a Brexit deal…

“Comparing the European Union to the Soviet Union is as unwise as it is
insulting,” Tusk said. “The Soviet Union was about prisons and gulags,
violence, against citizens and neighbours. The European Union
is about freedom and human rights, prosperity and peace, life without
fear. As the president of the European council and someone who spent
half of my life in the Soviet bloc, I know what I am talking about.”…

The meetings are a chance for the EU to assess next moves on the biggest obstacle to a Brexit deal, as the clock ticks down to a make-or-break EU summit on 17-18 October.”
