COMM: "It happens every time a Congress comes around..crowds jammed packed on the payments, the shop windows suddenly smarter, and a whole range or goods
which no one has been able to get for months miraculously appear."
"Simple necessities like lavatory paper and imported detergent
..all too often unobtainable..
...presents for the children from the huge toy shop called.....
..fruit by the sackful..earlier this week their were even grape-fruit........ No just Muscovites benefit...
people come in from neighbouring districts...even from other republics
...all appropriately attired..to show the Congresses foreign visitors that all the talk of shortages just isn't true......life really does get better every day."
