Communist traitor in Castro encomium

The detestable and repellent Richard Gott, former KGB agent and Guardian columnist, is in his element today. The tone of his article, basically that Cuba is re-invigorating its revolution, is relentlessly upbeat - how could it not be when everyone knows that Castro is "recognised by new generations as one of the great figures of the 20th century" - and the message is extremely supportive of one of the more long-standing and brutal dictatorships in the world.

If it had been established that Gott had been a spy for the Nazis, or even for the CIA or British Intelligence, does anyone believe that he would receive as prominent a position in the Guardian? As Douglas Murray notes, the only reasonable explanation is that "the newspaper approves of people such as Gott, and of the genocidal regime they propped up."

I do hope you all had a lovely Easter by the way.

Long live the everlasting revolution! The Guardian and their liberal socialist pandering make me sick.
