That General Pinochet's a lovely man

Mrs Thatcher's favourite murderous South American dictator, Gen. Augusto Pinochet, has today said that he takes full political responsibility for his time in power.
Well that's alright then. I'm sure the families of the disappeared will be appeased by that.

Maggies "favourite murderous South American dictator, Gen. Augusto Pinochet". Her favourite eh? Well I'm afraid he's gone down in my estimation after finding out that little nugget.

Oh aye. She was most complimentary towards him. He offered tactical support during the Falklands War, so he must be alright.
She also supported moves to ensure he didn't stand trial, which turned out to be successful.

Good news: He's had a heart attack.

Bad news: He survived.
