I have always have the upmost respect for those that have died for our country, and in this I feel more British that I would ever feel Spanish. Everyone that knows me, knows that I respect and remember those that die to defend Britain.
Nonetheless, should we not be remembering those that die defending the freedom of their country against those supported by Britain our Allies?
As I walked around Santiago I saw the memorial to President Allende, who in 1973 refusse to leave the Presidential Palace as a military coup supported by the CIA brought down a government democratically elected.
Until the day of his death he never lost his faith on the people of his country, as the Memorial reminds us
' I have never lost my faith in the people of Chile '
President Salvador Allende ( 1908 -1973 )
