Sahra Wagenknech’s Lobster Puts Her In Hot Water

Writes the Guardian: “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 £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.

And how did Comrade Wagenknecht react? She told an aide to get the camera and erase the images.

Says Wagenknecht: “I don’t do anything that I say others shouldn’t do. On the contrary, I’m fighting for a society in which everyone can afford to eat lobster.”

And why did she erase the pictures? Says she: “I didn’t like them.”

Lobster for me, lobster for you – forward with lobster!
