Human Rights; where we stand today!
This charming person is Rwanda's 'Head of Security' Karenzi Karaki. He recently landed at Heathrow airport (June 20th) and was immediately arrested. There was a European Arrest Warrant issued for his extradition to Spain for genocide; but luckily help was at hand.
Champion of all things evil, Cheerie Blair (wife of Tony), was there to defend his human rights. For a SERIOUS amount of money she has managed to avoid his extradition to Spain, and he will soon be happily on his way back to the safety of his beloved Rwanda. Well; a chap does have rights, you know.
Oh, and I don't know if there's any relevance in this, but husband Tony did have the use of two of the Rwandan president's private jets (organised by Karaki), when recently on a charitable tour of Africa. Well, they do say 'One good deed deserves another'.
Look, just because a chap is accused of mass genocide, it doesn't mean he's guilty. I think Cheerie was quite right to act on his behalf (for a HUGE undisclosed sum); after all, there is a minuscule possibility that it's all a question of mistaken identity.
Yeah, a bit like Tony's understandable mistake about Iraq's WMD's.
Ain't life grand... another million in the coffers. What larks!
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
