Opinions of others...

Really just an update on what I was posting last week about our friend -perhaps the 'r' in friend isn't necessary - Hugo the clown. My previous post related the latest problems but Human Rights Watch has published 'A Decade Under Chávez' on the problems in Venezuela that states in the final sentence of the Executive Summary:

"Venezuela will not achieve real and sustained progress toward strengthening its democracy—nor will it serve as a useful model for other countries in the region—so long as its government continues to flout the human rights principles enshrined in its own constitution."

Ironically it was the government of Hugo the Man (before too much clowning and before the rot had crossed the Rubicon) that introduced that Constitution.
