Not so red planet Mars

The lack of life on Mars, let alone any civilisations was due (at least in part) to its lower gravity (and thus the leeching of its atmosphere into space). However there is one far more rational reason a mere simpleton like myself would never have considered – and that is CAPITALISM.

Well according to deal old Hugo Chavez. “I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that on Mars there had been civilisation, but then probably capitalism arrived, imperialism arrived, and did for this planet,” he said at an event on Tuesday to mark World Water Day.

Well there you have it I’m convinced!…. To be fair Chavez did make more sensible comments but he seems to have a knack of sounding like a dolt.

When he publicly supported Mugabe I took everything he said with a pinch of salt.

When he publicly supported Gaddafi, a salt mine isn't deep enough.
