Aung San Suu Kyi

Predictably the Burmese Junta has fixed the trial against Aung San Suu Kyi placing her under further house arrest and ensuring that she won’t be able to participate in next year’s elections. Clearly these elections will be a total sham. The world knows that if she were permitted to campaign and participate in these elections she would achieve the sort of endorsement that ‘tin pot’ dictators can only organise by fixing the system.

Ultimately, of course, democracy will win through in Burma and it will be in no small part because of this brave, dignified, gracious woman leader.
