I don't accept the apology by the Liberal Party Web Team. Our Prime Minister is being compared to Joesph Stalin and the assassination photo may have made the finalist panel.
Calculating the number of victims
Researchers before the 1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union attempting to count the number of people killed under Stalin's regime produced estimates ranging from 3 to 60 million. After the Soviet Union dissolved, evidence from the Soviet archives also became available, containing official records of the execution of approximately 800,000 prisoners under Stalin for either political or criminal offenses, around 1.7 million deaths in the Gulags and some 390,000 deaths during kulak forced resettlement – for a total of about 3 million officially recorded victims in these categories.
Making light of the human suffering at the hands of Communism through Joesph Stalin is unacceptable and may be officially endorsed by the Liberal Party. Is there no level the party won't stoop to?
Being reduced to twenty seats at the next election would be too generous.
Update: thank you Patrick Ross for the reminder
