The country where they give honours to Honecker

Remember Erich Honecker? The deeply odious leader of the German Democratic Republic and father of the Berlin Wall? He has, thankfully, been powering the central heating in the infernal regions for about 14 years.

His scumbag wife is still desecrating the world with her presence, and normally resides in Chile (what is it with that place?) on a state pension from the Federal Republic. She was not some little woman waiting at home for the vile Erich, but the Education Minister of the DDR for 26 years. I have seen extracts of text books from the DDR, and maths questions would involve tractors carrying beet from various fields to the collective farms. I am NOT making this up. So, Not One of Us.

However, Margot is on holiday in Nicaragua and they appear to be having quite the Sandinista / Sandalista reunion at the moment:

"Margot Honecker...was awarded a top Nicaraguan honor for her work on a 1980s literacy campaign....[She] reportedly also received the Rubén Diario honor for her husband's services to the people of the Central American country."He showed such solidarity and particular caring interest in the free people of Nicaragua," said the wife and spokeswoman of President Ortega, Rosario Murillo, adding that Honecker had supported the first Sandinista government back in the 1980s".

Seethe, seethe. Oh yes, and Victory to the Contras.

I hope she gets kicked out of the plane home at 30,000 feet.

About to finish "The Berlin Wall" by Frederick Taylor. Excellent account of the awful East German regime under Ulbricht and Honecker.
