If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

Yup, they just kept him in a freezer for 30 years, when they didn't need him. Then the government had him reheated a couple of years ago, so they could brag about how Algeria had the eldest statesman in the Magrebh countries.

"It is the essence of a true democracy that people should be respected individually, not simply collectively. It is also of the essence of a democracy that differences and distinctions are recognised and, where relevant, honoured. A democracy should be above all a thoughtful type of society, in these and other respects."

Will be referred to soon as Oscar Niemeyer syndrome... assuming the venerable architect is not immortal, which may well be.

Such assumption is a blasphemy.

His opposition to the Iraq War in 2002-2003 made some headlines, as did his appointment to the African Union's "Council of the Wise" but yeah other than that he basically hadn't done anything notable since he was overthrown in 1965.
