Communist eats lobster, airbrushes history

This is almost as funny as the Venezuelan muckety-muck railing to reporters against capitalism and globalization, only to have a journalist ask him, on camera, why then he was wearing Gucci shoes and a Louis Vuitton tie: a German MEP is photographed eating lobster, which runs counter to her image, so she... corrects the past.

By the time she had realised her mistake - that as one of Germany's top communists she should probably not be seen eating lobster - it was too late.

There was no time to switch from the €22 (£16) "rich man's dish" to a more modest platter of kippers, because Sahra Wagenknecht had already been caught on camera in the act of betraying her own political ideals. . . . [so] the day after the dinner Wagenknecht, 38, allegedly dispatched her parliamentary assistant to the office of Feleknas Uca, the photographer and fellow Left MEP who was one of six other Left members at the dinner. The assistant asked whether Uca would lend her her digital camera to "take photographs with an acquaintance".

According to Uca, the photographs of Wagenknecht cracking into her lobster had been erased from the camera when it was returned to her the following day.


A Communist birthright, sold for a mess of lobster! Better than pottage, at any rate.
