Obstipated obstrobogulous oaf...
at the FT missed one out! He writes "Expropriate it! The Chavez approach to Venezuela’s housing shortage", "What do a steel company, urban development projects and golf courses all have in common?". Well add to that the cacao producers; Chavez said, after inviting "everyone to help us to become an important cocoa producer again" that he would seize cocoa processing companies if they did not join "a strategic agreement with the State...again? What the fuck have you done then? Venezuela is home to some of the finest chocolate, "Together with Ecuador, Venezuela produces about 70% of the world's fine cocoa"...say the Nestle sponsored Cocoa Plan but I guess Hugo is on about quantity not quality**. Anyway, more doom and gloom. The golf course bit was classic Chavez, clearly to him only the whiskey-swilling, evil bourgeois play golf but his twattishness could lead to more trouble; he is inciting Venezuelans to take any land they think isn't being used correctly.
** The highest quality cacao comes from the Criollo variety and one of the largest producers of Criollo beans is Venezuela (however, it has lower yields and is not as disease resistant)
P.S. On a calmer and more flippant note, Ows likes chocolate; here's all you could possibly want to know: odd orgasmic ordeal (it get's serious after about 3 paragraphs and it's worth getting to the end!)
