Why Are the Obituaries always at the back ?

Posted: December 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

Turning to the back of a recent magazine I read the obituary of Baby Doc Duvalier who appears to have been a nasty piece of work and  followed his much feared father in ruling Haiti in 1971.

There was no election campaign only a referendum that endorsed the choice of Jean Claude ( Baby Doc ) Duvalier by 2,391,916 to one. This started me thinking who was the one, did he survive ? did he stand in opposition ?.

Maybe he/she was the Haitian equivalent to Russell Brand with whom I agree on the majority of the sentiment of his beliefs but I cannot quite see what you achieve by not voting. As recent independence votes have shown that if you have something heart felt to put a cross against you turn out on windy nights. The solitary vote in Haiti had little effect as Baby Doc ruled until 1986 when he was forced to leave the country due to food riots, are you reading Duncan Smith, but during his rule the people endured many years of suffering.

So perhaps whats missing is a man/woman who can stir the emotions and encourage us to raise a pencil to put a cross against the need for change as peaceful elections must surely be, in the UK at least, the answer, otherwise we will all be reading the back pages of the UK’s obituary.
