I think its quite unprofessional and un-leader like that May is not attending the funeral of Fidel Castro.
Many other heads of state are attending because they represent the respect of their own countries to morn. Castro is one of the longest serving leaders in the world who brought equality and hope to Cuba, both of which are British values too.

If Teressa May attended the funeral she would be promoting Britain and our values. We share a lot with Cuba, we are both Islands and soon like Cuba we will be facing isolation.

I see nothing wrong with her actions, he was a dictator and quite a violent one at times.

Britain fawned all over Saudi Arabia following the death of the vicious autocrat King Abdullah last year, so I don't see why not.

Judging by the content & regularity of your somewhat ludicrous posts I don't think it'll be long until you're invited to be a member of Jeremy Corbyn's shadow cabinet OP.

Yes, of a kind. All were equally in the gutter (except for his family and friends, of course) and all hoped for an end to the regime.

Your motives are good OP but it would be an insult to a man as great as Castro to have a political leader like May at his funeral.

It makes me laugh to see all of these little people on this website taking the moral high ground saying Castro was a dictator while ignoring the far greater crimes of the imperialists.

There is only one thing to be said to them: You can dance on a lion's grave but you will never be a lion.

I read once that Castro wanted every Cuban family to live live in a mansion, if that was possible. That was his idea of a classless society. He didn't want a nation of peasants he wanted the best for everyone but all to be equal. Cuba does however have the best healthcare in the Americas only Canada was perhaps better. The US healthcare system might be modern but only the rich can afford to use it.

if he wanted it and he had the power (as he did) why did it not happen, despite fifty years of Castro being in charge?

Economic sanctions from the US didn't help.

Nevertheless, he didn't even try, did he? And he persecuted his people. The first duty of any state is to protect its citizens. In this, Castro failed abysmally.

There is no oil in Cuba and they don't buy us arms.

Just because we did something in the past doesn't mean we need to keep on doing it,

I'd rather live in the U.S. than Cuba, even if Cuba has better healthcare. What's the point of living in a country with good healthcare if you have no freedom? Life isn't worth living on an island prison.
