must be looking forward to upgrading their cars to 1960s models ard moving on into the late 20th century now that Castro has popped his clogs!

"Where there is a political vacuum, there is opportunity for someone to fill it."

I think this was a quote from Putin?

Interesting to see what is going to happen in Cuba now Castro is gone after 50 yrs in power.

I would think that Cuba will be quite stable post Fidel on account that his brother has been running things for the last decade and has already made peace of sorts with the USA.

Fidel Castro's son, Raul has been President of the Council of State and running the country since 2006, so I don't see much changing soon.

Yes, his son.

I thought I was right first time...

Quickbeam, you were and are.

Actually, I believe I was wrong, Raul is Fidel Castro's younger brother.

A classic case of if you state something with enough authority, it's believed!

Anyway Cuba's motorists will no longer have to repair their ageing '50s cars bodywork with old food tins...
