PostUnrest in Tunisia: Comparisons with UK? (John Heelan, -UK, 01/18/11 1:54 pm)
Nigel Jones (17 January) accuses me of blurring the argument, of confusing "revolution" and "riots," Once again a debate wrecked on the rock of definitions! (smile). However, there might be similarities between the outcome of the Tunisian "riots/revolution" and that of the UK Poll Tax riots. Both heads of government were deposed--the Tunisian president fleeing to Saudi Arabia and Thatcher being stabbed in the back, while she was out of the country, by her colleagues not long after the riots.
