Ikea is facing allegations that it used Cuban prisoners to make its products in the 1980s.
The claims follow allegations this week that East German political prisoners were forced to make furniture for the Swedish retailer from the 1970s.
According to a report in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, a deal to make Ikea furniture in Cuban prisons was hatched using East German trading connections.
Using prison labour is of course wrong.
But Cuba, and formerly, the GDR, were right in their chucking the bourgeois into prison. And he who does not work should not eat as well.
So how can this be negotiated, this conflict of lefty views?
Presumably blame IKEA: must be, the capitalists made them do it, eh?
