My Headmaster used to hold a general studies class at the school. He was rather pompous and although the lectures were interesting most of it was over my head. At the end of the talks he would ask the pupils if they had any questions and he would confidently answer them all. When I told my mother about him she said “ask him this question – what is communism? – That should take the wind out of his sails!” At the next lecture I was very nervous and when he finished I put my hand up and asked him the question. He gasped and paused for a while then proceeded to answer the question. He talked for some length but I didn’t understand him. When I told my mother she was pleased that it had the desired effect! Has Vladimir Putin finally answered this question?
