It was Patrick Bond I seem to recall, who was a while ago reassuring the
list about the supposed democratic wing in the MDC. Note however that the
MDC has the blessing of the former colonial power. This bare fact on its
own is sufficient to alert one to the true function of the MDC in the
politics of Southern Africa -- as is confirmed by Jared's recent post
from the MDC website.
