Ms. Reifenstahl, Der SpudderJune 25, 2020 Tim WorstallRagging on Ritchie5 CommentsHave you two met before? All that is required is political will. That word ‘all’ is, however, critical. previousHmm, well, gosh….nextCoronavirus is just an MMT test, yknow… 5 thoughts on “Ms. Reifenstahl, Der Spudder” Steve June 25, 2020 at 9:52 am Triumph des Kartoffel Adrian June 25, 2020 at 10:02 am ‘Political will’ is usually short hand for ‘removing lots of people in senior positions in the public sector whose views don’t accord’. He is a novice on these things, having never worked in the public sector. But he assumes such people are compliant and will vacate their posts happily, or undergo re-education. I haven’t met a senior public servant who fits that profile. The Meissen Bison June 25, 2020 at 10:24 am Reifenstahl is good – I bet they use lots at Conti-Gummi.

So Much For Subtlety June 25, 2020 at 12:02 pm I doubt the two have ever met (or that he has even heard of her) for many reasons. Some of them boring and practical. But also because 1. She has a clear fondness for hard men. Naked hard men by preference. Mostly, of course, Nazi Stormtroopers (what with her being a Nazi and all – and yes she was) but also Masaii warriors etc. Not blobs of gelatinous flab in suburbia, and 2. She was talented. If they came close to meeting it was when she scraped something remarkably like him off her show. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
