Professor Tim Lang is one of our own government\’s advisors on food security.
Here\’s what he had to say about Britons farming parts of the Ukraine.
\”I feel sorry for Ukraine, here it is, it was colonised by the Russians, it was the grain basket for many, many years, it went downhill and now it is being asset stripped again by the West,\” he says.
\”You could say that it is good for the Ukraine, that it is getting inside investment from rich countries, that its productivity will go up, that since the collapse of the Soviet Union it has not had the requisite investment, that at least under Stalinism there was a huge amount of that sort of investment – you can paint that picture – but I\’m not convinced by that.\”
I feel rather faint after that. Before I retire to come all over Obnoxio or DK, I\’ll just point out that this fool thinks that \”huge amount of that sort of investment\” means cordoning off the country and starving 8 million of the population to death.
For that is what Stalin did….
