He's retroactively dobbing all my posts this afternoon.
Had his picture taken next to a plane once, thinks he's Leonard Cheshire
Funny how so many of the non German E.U. elite have a closet Nazi past,.... tusk, Junker..To be fair, the phot needs some context....
Józef Tusk - Wikipedia
A member of the Kashubian minority, Józef Tusk was born in Gdańsk (Danzig, German Empire) to Józef Tusk (1870–1910) and Augustyna Tusk (née Adamczyk; 1870–1962).He became a citizen of the Free City of Danzig after World War I and worked for the Polish railway in the Free City. He became a member of the Polish Secret Military Organization (Tajna Organizacja Wojskowa, TOW), which prepared behind-the-lines operatives in case of the war. On 1 September 1938 Tusk was placed in the position of the telegraphist in the Danzig (Gdańsk) railway station. It is likely, but not confirmed, that he had been working with the Polish intelligence services. On 1 September 1939, when Germany invaded Poland, the Free City of Danzig was incorporated into the German Reich and the citizens of the Free City became German nationals. Tusk was assaulted in his house in the morning, and later witnessed German arrests of Poles at the railway station, and the Defence of the Polish Post in Danzig.
Józef Tusk reported the assault to Danzig police, and was subsequently arrested as a Polish activist, described as a "Polish fanatic, dangerous to the security of the German State"; his family on the same day was evicted from their house. Tusk was a forced laborer working in the construction of the Stutthof concentration camp In 1941 he was interviewed by Gestapo and imprisoned in Neuengamme concentration camp. On 26 August 1942 he was released from Neuengamme.
On 2 August 1944 Tusk was conscripted into Wehrmacht, into the 328. Grenadier-Ersatz- und Ausbildungsbatallion (328th Grenadier Replacement and Training Battalion).After about four months, around 24 November 1944 or soon afterward, he either deserted, defecting to the Polish Armed Forces in the West, or was imprisoned in an Allied prisoners-of-war camp.
Józef Tusk returned to Sopot, where his family moved to, in the People's Republic of Poland, in mid-October 1945. According to his family and friends, he never spoke much about his wartime history.
He sounds OK to me.
We have billions in trade ready to switch to the US from EU. Or to anyone who wants it and can deliver reciprocal market access.I place more faith in some of the people that work for him that place the interests of the United States as a whole, above their personal legacy. A fairish deal that both sides hate, that will last long term is what is needed. One that completely fucks over the other side, might bring short term gain. However in the long run it could be problematic when you are out for blood and want payback. It is a balancing act between profit and long term planning.
Nobody likes a car salesmen when they find out they have been conned, and you will never go back to them again. I would rather keep you as a reliable partner for decades then burn that bridge for short term gain.
Oh I am sure plans are also being drawn up to penetrate your markets, and bring American Fads to your shores. I will buy lots of Scotch if you take the Kardashian’s!! Shit I think you could get quite the chunk From millions of Americans who hate them.We have billions in trade ready to switch to the US from EU. Or to anyone who wants it and can deliver reciprocal market access.
If the US want the business, they'll offer a fair deal. If they don't then business as usual as we'll be on the same tarrif schedule with the US as we are now.
I brings me great comfort to know that should the UK leave the EU on 29th March on WTO terms the fires of hell that, according to Tusk, awaits us leavers, will be quenched by the bitter tears of remainers.They seem absolutely certain that it'll all be glory forever/eternal hellfire come March 29.

It's easy. We have lots of political parties but only two in England that mean anything and have a hope of forming a government.True I thought she was safe for a year!? But your political rules and process are hard to follow. You need a Clifts notes for Septics so those of us not in the State Department can follow along.
You say we were America's bitch in the second world war yet during that war our brave citizens fought and died alongside each other fighting against those who you claim we have actual ties with.replacing one partner which whom we have the actual ties through the history with someone whose bitch we were in last world war isn't really a good deal. On the contrary- it's a rather bad deal.
Despite they speak language similar to ours, they don't think like we do. And monolinguism is something that we should take no pride of.
You say we were America's bitch in the second world war yet during that war our brave citizens fought and died alongside each other fighting against those who you claim we have actual ties with.
These historic ties with our European cousins: over the last couple of hundred years we have fought wars against France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Holland, Denmark-Norway, Russia, the Swiss, Hungary, Ireland, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Finland, Albania, Yugoslavia. In fact, pretty much every European country at one time or other.
Ask @ViolatorOfVirgins who brought it up, suggesting Europe = good, America = bad. My point being that just because we are of the same continent our shared history has never been a bed of roses.I just don't see why historic conflicts - like things that literally happened 100s of years ago area relevant to the debate...
