The BBC finally gets its man.

A pro-Castro Miami Cuban can't have been easy to find - no wonder the BBC wants to show him off on its main news page (correct as I write). Good morale booster for the boys and girls in the newsroom, eh?

Here's a link to the actual article.

This one Miami Cuban who supports Castro concludes:
"I would like to return to Cuba. But I have to do my duty first, opposing the US aggression against Cuba - including the embargo.

I'll go back to Cuba once the relationship between the two countries has normalised."

"But I hope that's not any time soon because, quite frankly, I'm doing OK here in the States."

He doesn't seem to be champing at the bit to get back to socialist hell.

The litmus test has always been who is going to where and where from and who is saying what while doing the opposite.

Now that this chaps ‘plight’ has been highlighted by the ever helpful Beeb, perhaps the Americans could assist with his repatriation by casting him adrift in a rubber inner tube, preferable from the back of a C130.

Let me see:

He is Cuban. He loves Cuba and he loves Fidel Castro. I presume he shares Fidel's political philosophy. He resents the US's aggression against his beloved Cuba - and, I presume, the materialism that lies within that consumerist hell that is the United States - and wants to return to his home country of Cuba.

So...er...what is stopping him? The embargo? He's a journalist - he can oppose the embargo just as easily in his beloved Cuba. And he will be closer to his "blessed" leader.

In fairness to the Beeb, it runs an interview with Paul Rivero; and it is Rivero who now graces the front page of the BBC News site.

Well of course - they're running scared of me now.
