Strange choice?

Is it just me, or does anyone else find legislator "Long Hair" Leung Kwok-hung's attire somewhat ironic?

A T-shirt featuring revolutionary Che Guevara, whose main achievement in life (apart from being photogenic) was assisting the overthrow of a democratic government in Cuba to see it replaced by a single-party state.

Perhaps you should learn some history, Mr. Ludlow: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuba

(OK, you have to take Wikipedia with a grain of salt these days, thanks to the constant vandalism from partisan interests.)

I won't have a look at the entry for Batista on Wikipaedia if you don't mind. I would expect that it has been edited by Havana and history has traditionally been written by the winners.

However, I'm reasonaly up on my history and the facts I recall are that Batista was elcected two of the four times he came or resumed power. I'm not saying that the elecetions were fair - Cuba is a latin American country after all. But he was nevertheless democraticly elected when he came to power.
