Venezuela may be a country better known for beauty queens and oil than agriculture, but it’s politicians sure can throw haymakers! This is government in the post-Chavez era, complete with fisticuffs and brawling, blood and bruises – in the legislature, not on the streets! Democracy Venezuelan-style, or at least modern Venezuelan-style, if anything about Venezuelan can be called modern.
Mind you if they can keep the violence in the parliament and not throughout the streets and parks of the country they’d be doing something positive at least. Alas I fear it is only a matter of time until the already bad situation turns very ugly. The upholders of the late Hugo Chavez’ ideals seem determined to keep taking giant steps backwards.
Shame on them.
