A poisonous dictatorship has been built in Tunisia, the birthplace of the Arab spring
President Kais Saied’s tirade against sub-Saharan African migrants is just his latest assault on democracy
Would be interesting to ask the actual people of the country – you know, that democracy idea – what they think about the migrants.
After all, even dictators only usually propose policies they think are popular with the demos.
Entirely agreed that such policies might be against human rights, or civil liberties, or plain good manners – might, note – but doing what the majority of the people want is not in fact an assault upon democracy.
