And all because The Lady loves......Democracy

Today's best news was that Aung Sas Suu Kyi has been released from her twenty-year period of house arrest. Who knows what may come to pass as a result?

Now if even the Burmese military junta can eventually come to see the benefit to its image of releasing a high-profile dissident from open-ended detention, can we hope that Israel will release Mordechai Vanunu? Come on, Mr Netanyahu: if you can't handle fully-fledged democracy yet, surely you could at least experiment with as much as much as the Burmese dictators?
