THE EUROPEAN Union is starting to take on the hated traits of the old Soviet Union, according to a controversial advertising guru currently splitting opinion in Germany and Switzerland.
Advertising guru Alexander Segert said the EU elite were operating like the old Soviet politburo imposing centralized one-size-fits-all rules and values on everyone in the community.
He added: “They are trying to bring different mentalities and cultures under one roof and level them. And people don’t like that.”
Segert is a deeply divisive figure who has produced some of the most jaw-dropping political and anti-migrant ad campaigns seen in Switzerland in decades – yet the former journalist insists he has a vital role to play in current politics.
