EU to Cuban democrats - piss off

Vaclav Havel quite rightly lays about the EU's new Cuba policy with a big stick with nails in it.

For the record, I am of the view that American sanctions on Cuba are almost certainly broadly counterproductive and are sustained as much for domestic political reasons than serious strategy or human rights concerns. This is something quite different, however.

I would hope that ordinary people within the EU would be disgusted by this and lobby their elected representatives to get their fingers out. Given the popularity of things like The Motorcycle Diaries, celebrating the life of anti-democratic, gulag-supporting, Stalinist street thug "Che" Guevara among the public at large (every time I see the advert for it in the Oxford Street Virgin megastore I want to scream) I'm not holding my breath.
