    And Chavez has abolished any presidential term limits and abolished the independence of the Central Bank in Venezuela. Its galling to think the high price of oil is keeping him in power. Chavez is the greatest threat to democracy in Latin America and he is devastating Venezuels's private sector base and making the Venezuelan economy almost wholly dependent on oil.

    Shame on Maradona, he should congratulate the governments of Colombia and Peru, they are the shining lights for the rest of Latin America to follow. Both Peru and Colombia have improved GDP growth rates, have a restrained executuve branch of government and are reducing poverty rates and murder rates respectively.

    Whatever God says... we shall obey
    There is something pigheaded about Wexford this season, something pigheaded and perverse and oddly beautiful. In certain lights they are starting to look heroic.

    The Rory Carroll guy who wrote the piece, is he the same fella who was kidnapped in Iraq ?
    If so, he must enjoy the adventurous side of journalism.

    Openly admitting cheating in the world cup? Even bragging about it? Surely grounds for having the cup taken away from Argentina.....

    Ah yes. Cause democracies ought to be supporting death squads and right wing paramilitary organisations, drug runners and union busting.
    Actual morality is doing what is right regardless of what you're told. Religious morality is doing what you're told, regardless of if it's right.

    Lets see Chavez uses some of the money to look after his own people rather than feathering the next of CIA companies.

    Obviously a threat to the world and he doesn't buy US Arms either.

    But will he try maintain rule through death squads as in the former shining lights of South America? He is one of the most popular leaders in the World I venture. Well in excess of 60% last time I remember a poll. The opposition can challenge his presidentship though a referendum as they have done. Venez. plus Switzerland are the only countries in the world to have this facility.

    He's reduced the max working day to 6 hours with this proposed change to the constitution. Which will be passed/failed by referendum. There are both some worrying autocratic tendencies and some really promising progressive policies being implemented by Chavez. But he is elected, popular and a damned sight more democratic then the oligarchs who ruled previously.
