Of course Craig Murray is a sentimental so-and-so.

25 January, 2008

For me too, Peter Hain was a hero – I well remember how he helped to fan the flames of hope in South Africa in the early seventies while I was being brought up there. He was in a pantheon that included Nelson Mandela, Joe Slovo, and Robert Mugabe whom he bombastically criticises these days! Ironic then that the older, lesser Hain has become cowardly and treacherous while Mugabe has remained a staunch opponent of perfidious Albion!

While I would feel sorry for most politicians who lose their jobs over a party funding incident, Hain is not one of them. His demise simply means, if I ever came across him in a dark alley, I’ll be better equipped to resist the temptation to kick him in the, err, …shins.

    Oh, Johan, I loved your Spanish podcasts! They are so much more intellectual, lingual, and entertaining than any of the other “learn a language in two minute” podcasts out there! Is there any chance you would resume podcasting for the language aficionados out here?
