Still hovering

Our old pal Fidel Castro has just delivered his latest “editorial”, which is published in today’s online edition of Granma, the regime’s official propaganda sheet.

And yes, you guessed right – it’s yet another long-winded, repetitive attack on US president George W Bush.

But there is a seemingly throw-away line at the very end that would appear to confirm to Cubans at least, what we have always suspected: when first taken ill almost a year ago, the 80-year-old dictator came close to kicking the bucket.

For the first time, Castro himself admits that for a while, “I hovered between life and death”.
