Crazy Colonel

My foot injury is keeping me off the roads at the moment. This gives me more time to consider the odd things and strange people which seem to people much of the world.

And they don't come much stranger than Colonel Gaddafi, with his wild collection of designer frocks.

I have only ever met one Libyan. I was sitting next to him on a plane. We were speaking together of things Libyan, so I asked him what he thought of Gaddafi.

There was no hesitation. "He's a lunatic. Everybody in Libya thinks he's a lunatic".

But he has ruled Libya for over 40 years.
