Situation? Normal

The United Nations expert delegated to keep an eye on human rights in Cuba has reported that the Castro regime has “failed to improve its human rights record”. Which I am sure will surprise most of you. Then again, probably not.

Christine Chanet told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva yesterday that the Castro regime continued to imprison political dissidents at will, imposing strict censorship across the island and restricting the activities of human rights activists.

In other words, no change.

As expected, the Cuban ambassador to the UN in Geneva, an idiot by the name of Juan Fernandez Palacios, responded by describing the report as “libellous”. And for good measure, he accused Ms Chanet of political manipulation – and serving the interests of a “fascist clique”.

As I said: No change.
