Gadfly, the man who oppressed his people and terrorised them with things like dragging them out and executing them without trial has been... dragged out and executed without trial. There's a collection of grisly pictures at Barking Spider's place and, unlike the Omightbe Bin Laden episode, it does look very much like the Gadfly in the pictures.
On the one hand, he did deserve it. It's no more than he did to an awful lot of people.
On the other hand, it makes those who did it no better than him. You can't object to torture and summary execution by using torture and summary execution. So it looks like no change in Libya after all.
It's a particular shame because if he had gone on trial, there'd have been a few self-important people sweating about what he might say, what deals he might reveal. So perhaps it wasn't just a heat-of-the-moment thing.
Anyway, The Cameroid has his 'I am somebody important' hat on to tell us all of this momentous happening. Then he is going to ignore the will of his people, tax them into little icebergs this winter, continue funding all those who want to force us to live their way, continue adding to the petty regulations and trivial offences with huge fines attached, and carry on letting the EU take control.
He might want to look again at those photos. So might Don Shenker, the Dreadful Arnott and the BMA, among others.
They'll scoff and say 'It'll never happen to us'. They'll laugh and declare that the people they torment will never fight back. Because, in their minds, the Gadffly never scoffed or laughed or said those things.
And neither did any of the other dictators.
