Remember this old rustbucket? The far-left party here in Germany, Die Linke, set one loose on the streets of Frankfurt just before last week’s regional elections. It’s meant to be reminiscent of the old Trabant people drove in the former communist East Germany. I guess it looks similar (here’s the original).

Noticed the problem? Yep, the actual car they used was a Ford. That’s an American multinational corporation with a revenue of some $170b a year — making most of these manifesto points rather vacuous.

Why let principle get in the way of good electioneering?
