A number of people have got in touch to make sure I don’t fail to mention an article in Tuesday’s The Guardian. In this much emailed piece, Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy take aim at Aung San Suu Kyi’s recent performance. Over on the Guardian‘s website it has already sparked a wide-ranging debate. There are some fiery contributions. The final flourish, for those wanting a taste of “Not such a hero after all” (which, by the way, strikes me as an odd title), is:
Instead of waiting the junta out, and turning its back, the party [the National League for Democracy] and its leader would have to begin engaging with its enemies as well as its friends. With any one, in fact, with whom it could form a dialogue. But when it comes to leaders, some in the party are asking whether it is it time to move on from Aung San Suu Kyi.
