My comment on Asa Bennett’s article in The Telegraph Donald Tusk thinks Brexiteers are longing for empire. Has he met the EU elite?

It is useful to know where Tusk and the like come from. The Communists in Poland have trained a number of people for future positions of leadership. The idea was to organize fake opposition to Communism and to pretend that the Communism in Eastern Europe collapsed. They created fake political groups. Tusk was positioned as a young free-market liberal.
The creation of fake opposition is an old Communist trick. In the 1920s Soviet Russia their secret service ran the Operation Trust, whose aim was to fool the outsiders and the Russian emigres that there was a real internal opposition to the Soviet terror. It is an old idea really.
The Communist-style politics runs in a provocateur mode. Pretty much everything is a provocation, while the effort is made to pretend it is a real thing.
So, Tusk is a Communist provocateur simply doing what he is told to do. This is a labour of the many, not the few.
[In reaction to this, certain Adam Johnson supposed that I must be a Law and Justice supporter and used a derogatory word to describe my comment. Here is my response.]

Sorry to disappoint you. I don’t support any political party in Poland. I was expelled from my job for political reasons in Autumn 2015. My wife was expelled from her job as well for political reasons. It is all here: lsborkowski.com/pol/
The leader of Law and Justice party in Poland, Jarosław Kaczynski is a son of a Communist party member. He comes from a family firmly embedded in Communism and thus privileged. My comment about Tusk applies to Kaczynski as well, with the exception of Kaczynski was positioned to the right of Tusk on the political axis.
I was a member of the Law and Justice from 2008 to 2010. I saw in essence no difference between it and the Communist party.
