Here we go again ...

Much speculation in the international media on whether Fidel Castro will make a public appearance on May Day.

On that day, thousands of supposedly ordinary Cubans will be bussed in by the Communist regime to attend a “workers’ rally” in Havana, where they will listen to interminable speeches and yell out the same, predictable anti-US slogans..

Much like they have done for the past 48 years, as it happens.

Castro has not appeared in public since late July, despite continuing claims by senior Cuban officials that the 80-year-old dictator is recovering well from his mysterious medical condition.

Well, I wouldn’t bet on a public appearance.

It is true that recent photographs released by the regime of Castro meeting senior Chinese visitors show him looking healthier than he did in the recent past.

But here’s the key: why is he still wearing a tracksuit rather than the customary uniform or even a suit more than eight months after first being taken ill?

I don't think he will show up. Maybe he'll be on TV but he's all done.
