One is left wondering why Mugabe had a knighthood in the first place, was there some category based around eradicating black people that qualified him?

He doesn't speak too fondly of Britain, so I doubt he's too upset....

I presume he got it sometime before he became a complete bastard.

More likely that he used to be the Queen's bastard. In the same way that Saddam hussein used to be the CIA's bastard.

Funny thing about tin-pot dictator Bastards supported by MI5 or the CIA, they tend to get ideas above their station.

Actually none of it is funny at all...

I think he hated Britain though. I'm surprised he accepted it in the first place.

Way back in the 60's or 70's when he was doing something shady for someone shady and generaly being shady he probably got onto the knighthood trail.


You've seen Yes Minister, Yes Prime minister, Wag the Dog, All the President's Men etc etc etc?

More to the point you've played Junta, Diplomacy, Games in general? ;)
