Coming up next ...

As Fidel Castro has been saying for the past 50 years, Cubans just don’t know how lucky they are to be ruled by the boys from Biran.

Not only are Cubans now allowed to window shop for flat screen televisions, DVDs and computers but they are about to get a brand new television channel.

The move was announced overnight by a senior official from the State television network, Luis Acosta, who said the new channel would broadcast mainly foreign programs around the clock.

While Mr Acosta did not say what type of foreign programs would be shown, Reuters says he did hint that the new channel would be a little more entertaining and offer more variety than the existing offering.

Which shouldn’t be too difficult given the deadly dull, Soviet-style propaganda that is aired at present almost non-stop.

Unfortunately, the new channel will be owned and run by the regime, which has a monopoly on all forms of communications on the island and quite clearly, is not in hurry to let go.
