#CPC #Conservatives2018 Mr Hunt @foreignoffice @Jeremy_Hunt are you aware of the monumental diplomatic travesty you committed today? Donald Tusk was leader of Student Committee of Solidarity in Gdańsk from ‘81. He literally helped bring down the fall of Communism.
As context, his predecessor Stan Pyjas was murdered by the Security Bureau. Tusk risked his life to bring down communism, as did many others of that Solidarity generation. Can you pls show respect and try understand the people you’re negotiating with? Your Toryboy glibness shows
He joined Lech Walesa’s first post communist government, and later became a two term serving elected Prime Minister. He’s been President of the European Council. If the EU was in any way like the Soviet Union, Donald Tusk would be in a better position to say so.
Ironic indeed @Jeremy_Hunt that you call for an understanding of history. Did @foreignoffice approve the comments that would so obviously offend a key counter party in the Brexit negotiations?
When Donald Tusk thinks of Communism, he will likely think of the grave of a young student thrown out of a bathroom window; and the countless thousands who disappeared, died, or were tortured until broken.
You Mr Hunt @Jeremy_Hunt understand neither the Soviet Union nor the EU
In 2007 the border between Poland and Germany was removed, opening up the Poznań road to Berlin, Paris and yes, Lisbon. Unimaginable freedom opened to Poles whose nation had until recently been occupied by the Nazis then controlled by the Soviets.1000 year conflict came to an end
