  1. You’re obviously a Right-Wing, Reactionary, Capitalist Running Dog Lackey for even mentioning this. These figures are transparent lies created by George W Bush in collaboration with Rupert Murdoch and Tony Blair. All Right-Thinking People know that Venezuela is a Peoples Paradise comparable only to Cuba in it’s enlightened policies and peace-loving, happy,healthy population.

  2. I think the reason is a bit sinister. It is rumoured amongst Venezuelans living in the UK that Chavez kills his opponents in secret.

    How better to hide murders than in a country with lots of them?
