Via, this. An Early Day Motion.EDM 982
That this House commends the achievements of Fidel Castro in securing first-class free healthcare and education provision for the people of Cuba despite the 44 year illegal US embargo of the Cuban economy; notes the great strides Cuba has taken during this period in many fields such as biotechnology and sport in both of which Cuba is a world leader; acknowledges the esteem in which Castro is held by the people and leaders of Africa, Asia and Latin America for leading the calls for emancipation of the world's poorest people from slavery, hunger and the denial of human rights such as the right to life, the right to shelter, the right to healthcare and basic medicines and the right to education; welcomes the EU statement that constructive engagement with Cuba at this time is the most responsible course of action; and calls upon the Government to respect Cuba's right to self-determination and resist the aggressive forces within the US Administration who are openly planning their own illegal transition in Cuba.
Similarly, various unutterable arseholes, both on the panel and in the audience, held a similar view on Newsnight tonight: Galloway, naturally, led the charge in praising this odious fucking dictator.
This is a man who imprisoned homosexuals, is personally responsible (with that other hero of the fucking Left, Che Guevara) for the extra-judicial killing of thousands—tens of thousands‐of people, gagged the press and shot those who attempted to leave this island paradise.
There is something seriously fucking wrong with a country that has to force its people to stay; and yet still Cuban people risked the make-shift rafts and the open sea, to try to reach the US.
To praise this little shit is to praise totalitarianism, authoritarianism, media gagging, lack of the rule of law, the imprisonment of minorities and a centrally planned Communism that has destroyed the economy.
So, now we see these fuckers' true colours: hang them, hang the fucking lot of them.
