Private Eye. Right on the money again.

June 27, 2008

I’m a subscriber to Private Eye magazine, and have been for about 15 years.
It never fails to amaze me how astute they can make the lambasting on their cover. They almost always hit their target, right between the eyes.
This week they’ve turned their attention (not for the first time) to the evil dictator, Mr. Robert Mugabe. I’ve featured his spectacular stupidity here before (see June 3rd entry).
So here’s Private Eye’s cover.

How much longer can someone so brutal cling to power? Does the international community not care? Or could it be that a lack of oil reserves and only reasonably slim mineral pickings mean that it’s not worth their time? Seems like he has impunity to do whatever he wants. Ethnic cleansing, rigging elections and ignoring everybody’s basic human rights.
All in all, not a particularly nice man. I for one won’t miss him.
