  • Wot a total Wally

    The good people of Venezuela are starving, but not the bad people of Venezuela it would seem. Whilst the cost of an egg (if you can find one) is beyond the reach of most, el Presidente is tucking into speciality steaks in one of the most expensive restaurant chains in the world (with $1,000 items on the menu) - and the chump allows himself to be videoed doing it! Like a scene from Animal Farm. But even Stalin had more sense, he had the photos of the Ribbentrop Molotov pact signing (in which he takes centre stage) reshot with all the vodka and caviare removed from the table.

    Well, Maduro is an ex-bus driver with about an 8th grade education, so what'd you expect...?

      Well I've known a few bus drivers and driving a bus, at least in a UK city takes a bit of nous. I've met plenty of people who didn't go that far through school who are still pretty smart and some dumb academics. Whatever this guy is dumb.

        Well for the lucky peasants in Venezuela, they can get the CLAP...

        It all depends on what the local CLAP committee is willing to give out rather than sell on the black market, as well as to how politically correct the recipient is.

          Once a Latin tyrant, always a Latin tyrant. Will South American governments ever change from self-interested family groups to genuine groups of concerned citizens legislating for the common good?

          Latin American politics remains, like African politics, a bad joke and an unending humanitarian crisis.

            With presidents employing family members --- oh hang about that's North American politics.
