Gorbachev Noodles

Mikhael Gorbachev is concerned at the cheapening of his name. Apparantly it has recently been used illegally to sell products ranging from vodka in Russia to noodles in Japan.

He says he’ll take legal action against those who use his name dishonourably.

Quite right. If anyone is going to sell the image of the last General Secretary of the Soviet Union to outfits like Pizza Hut then only the ex-General Secretary should do it.
