Funny this came out today! I just watched my favorite guilty pleasure “Dirty Dancing” last night! I thought it said a lot about discrimination, and also depicted a time in history that had great impact on so many people. The fall of Batista, and the rise of Castro…how sad when you know THAT ending for the wonderful Cuban people.

Rohingya who are labelled as long time suffered Muslim resident even century in Arakan state of Burma. Actually there are group of long time Arakanese Muslims are called KAMEIN who are in the original list of 135 national group. The initial group of Muslim were brought into Arakan state by Britisn East India compant to farm but the British neglected to include Brngali Muslim in the Burma Indepedence agreement between Burma Prime Minister U Nu and British Prime Minister Clement Attlee. Hence if human right campaigners wishes to blame, it’s the Colonial British Government short coming fault. Therefore Arkanese Muslim are illegal interloper from Bengali who never received legal resident status.
John Bercow, like most Western politicians, is totally infatuated with Ms Suu Kyi. He revelled in the massively counterproductive sanctions which she advocated, even though these sanctions did not touch the Generals, but only ordinary Burmese by denying them development aid and damaging labour-intensive industries like tourism and garment manufacture. The effectiveness of our sanctions was never debated in Parliament.
Ms Suu Kyi has herself publicly acknowledged that she is not, and never has been, a human rights advocate, only always a politician in what we can now see reflects the typical Asian dynastic model: authoritarian, intolerant of those pesky student organizations and civil society groups who used to be her ardent supporters, and increasingly reluctant to meet the international press.
The writer is not quite accurate historically. Ms Suu Kyi was placed under house arrest on 20 July 1989 and played no part in the 27 May 1990 elections. She had three spells under house arrest until her release on 14 November 2010, and one short period of imprisonment, but was released between times. Throughout her detention the Generals made it clear that she could leave Myanmar whenever she wanted to. She chose to stay. For this sacrifice of her liberty she merits much respect. But it was her choice.
On the Rohingya, their victimisation by the State authorities and the discrimination which they have suffered is not in doubt. Ms Suu Kyi, sadly, has done nothing to alleviate their misfortunes: indeed, she keeps well away from Rakhine State. Even so, there remains a strong residue of political support for her among the British establishment. Though she may indeed be a failure in the sense that the writer eloquently demonstrates, for better or worse Britain is wedded to her as still the best bet for promoting British interests in Myanmar. Realpolitik in action.
Loved Gypsy, and look forward too season 2. Sophia Cookson should have been mentioned in this review. Sophia (Sidney) played a key role in the series. The chemistry between Naomi and Sophia is amazing. Very well done.
Thank you I spent ages trying to open it and resorted to the internet Bingo it’s open
Can’t believe I missed the doggos
It might depend on the person as well. I loved my time at York uni and I expected a lot from it as well. My course was incredible and I met some really fantastic people there.
