Subject: RE: Ewan MacColl and Stalin
Seem a suitable time for another bit of Communist folklaw.

The 1956 Party conference in Moscow.

Comrade Kruschov is laying it on about th evils of Uncle Joe, and the cult of the personality. A heckler shouts from the audience " And what were you doing while this was going on "

K asks "Who said that ?" - Stoney silence.

Agsin Comrade K demands "who said that ?" - Silence.

"Well," said Comrade K, " Now you know we we said nothing !"
