You say Nayto I say Nahto

When confronted with the likes of José Maria Aznar claiming that he ‘believes in the West‘ as part of a speech seeking Israel’s entry to NATO, also claiming that said country is an ‘integral part of the West’, one is reminded of Gandhi’s observation that Western civilisation would be a good idea. When Hugo Chávez referred to Aznar as a fascist, thereby provoking the ire of the Spanish king, he was being unfair to fascists. Italian fascists had certain intellectual pretensions. Aznar, although resolutely authoritarian in personality, is a distinguished moron, and terrifyingly incoherent in several languages including his own. Here is a previous speech he made in favour of NATO, in which he appears to think ‘festival’ means ‘first of all’, advocating Israel’s entry to NATO. What’s the chances it’s the same speech he gave to the Israelis, but with slightly dodgier pronunciation?

He has luxurious hair, I’ll give him that.
