National self respect?

I see the former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet has died. Right up to his death the Chileans pursed him on human rights, fraud and corruption charges.

In contrast, our corrupt ‘little dictator’ Haughey, was well looked after by the State. He was allowed to live out his final days in luxury with the full support and loyalty of our current Prime Minister, Bertie Ahern.

When Haughey died he was given a State funeral at which Ahern delivered a glowing oration for the corrupt politician.

The Chileans could teach us something about national self respect.
