Senior citizens

Just as we always suspected, Fidel Castro is spending his days in enforced semi-retirement making a nuisance of himself.

According to the official Cuban media, the ailing dictator told a visiting senior Chinese official, He Guoqiang, that he dedicates "almost all the hours of the day" to reading news reports, pressumably on the Internet (hello, Fidel!).

He then analyses the material before sending off regular reports to senior Communist Party and government officials, whom no doubt jump for joy everytime they get delivery of a bundle of documents carefully stapled together by El Comandante.

As my dear old Mum likes to say, "que vejez!".

Yeah, OK, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I'm trying to sell, I'll let it go dirt cheap to anyone who makes me a reasonable offer within a week, get back to me. For anyone who would believe such nonsense from the Cuban media, I'd say that they may want to watch this before they take their word about anything that is related to Kasstro's capabilities, or rather, his lack thereof.
