Here's an interesting double.

Zimbabwe's Ian Smith and Ian Smith (ie Harold Bishop) from Neighbours.

That many chins can't be good for any man, and blowing the tuba must strain the heart a bit.

If this forum is anything like the P.W. Botha forum or the Pinochet one, we're going to have one big heated debate. Why not, let's get it over with. Someone post a pro-Rhodesia argument and we'll all argue it to death.

I noticed old Bobby Mugabe didn't make the DL '07. We better hope one of these would-be assassins Zimbabwe claims to discover every-other month doesn't get lucky and actually kill the guy.

Wiki page, a pretty fair assessment of such a controversial character I'd say, and a good place to start for anyone young enough to wonder who he is. Even links to an audio clip of him in his prime declaring UDI.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Surely the "mystery ranter" was alluding to the allegedly pro-Marxist tendencies of ZANU, not the politics of Ian Smith?
I suspect, in this context, the term "Democracy" was used in some quasi-ironic fashion to refer to the nature of Ian Smith's government. Still, at least sorting out Rhodesia kept him away from the BBC forums.

I think, dear guest, that the ranting squid-obsessed loon hasn't the first clue what he or she is on about. Glad to see one of the Iain Smith baiters sticking around though. Welcome.
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

Ian Smith, frail and undemocratic though he may be, would still be an infinitely better Zimbabwean leader than the evil despotic Mugabe. Why is the South African Govt. so silent when so many people are suffering under that monster?

Mebbe, after AIDS has riddled the population, Mugabe has driven the survivors to poverty and the inescapable overthrow has killed a stack more, South Africa will - like - just annex the joint.

This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
