Christmas has come early to ALBA member Antigua and St. Nicholas Hugo is packing his sleigh full of his favorite currency to provide Sir Allen's former stomping grounds with $50 million in emergency aid. To dispel any notion that the petrodiplomat's charity is somehow being used to advance his socialist revolution, Antiguan Prime Minister Baldwin Spencer said Helicopter Hugo provided the funds "completely without precondition". This follows right on the heels of other recent Chavez initiatives that have come without precondition such as threatening to nationalize two large Venezuelan coffee companies and seizing control of any media outlet who refuses to kowtow to him. Clearly they were on the 'naughty' list.
