Their man in London
His name is Brian Wilson (no, not that Brian Wilson). This one is a former Labour Party minister in Great Britain who retired from Parliament a couple of years ago.
Described as “the only member of the [Blair] government to maintain regular contact with Cuba between 1997 and 2005”, Mr Wilson has written an opinion piece in today’s edition of The Guardian newspaper.
His central premise is that the US is totally wrong about Cuba. And that the British government should disassociate itself from Washington when it comes to approaching the Castro regime in its current incarnation.
Dialogue is all we need to make things right.
And he describes those supposedly in charge in Cuba at the moment - Raul Castro, Carlos Lage, Felipe Perez Roque, etc - as people “I have met and respect”.
“Believe me, these are high quality people who would be assets to any government - and are now firmly in control of Cuba,” the former minister opines.
“Each of them is ideologically committed to maintaining Cuba's independence and political system. But none of them is the unbending ideologue of Washington caricature, far less an authoritarian denier of human rights.”
Bet that's news to most of you: Raul Castro, defended of human rights.
As for Fidel Castro, Mr Wilson predicts that when the seriously ill dictator finally kicks the bucket, “there will be outpourings of heartfelt sorrow among the Cuban people”.
He may be right – just as there was an outpouring of “heartfelt sorrow” in the old Soviet Union when Joseph Stalin died. It still didn't make him less of a tyrant.
Anyway, you can read his views here.
