Democracy is a sham – Muammar Gaddafi

Gaddafi says democracy treats people like ‘donkeys’ – New Zealand’s source for World News on

[quote] Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi said multiparty democracy is a sham promoted by governments that treat their people “like donkeys” and deny them real power, the official Libyan news agency Jana has reported.

Gaddafi added in a speech last week that his north African country would never abandon its “state of the masses” system of rule by town hall meetings, which he has long predicted will be eventually embraced by governments around the world, Jana said.

“They talk about the alternation of power (from one party to another), Jana quoted Gaddafi, Libya’s ruler for 37 years, as saying. “What does that mean? It means that people are being ridden like donkeys.”[/quote]

Oh right and a dictatorship is the way to go huh.

Of course Muammar forgets that he seized power in a coup in 1969 and in 1977 he proclaimed Jamahiriyah popular rule to try to create the perfect society in line with the teachings of his Green Book, which combines aspects of socialism, Islam and pan-Arabism.

here Labour is trying to seize power, not through a coup but through suppression of free speech.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
