Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

Well I finally tracked down that Ray Keene interview from a couple of weeks ago, which is to say that somebody was kind enough to send me a copy of it. Unlike its subject, it's pretty thin, but there's a couple of points arising, shall we say, that might be worth looking at over the course of the next week or so.

In the meantime this load of old bosh stood out, not least because a few people posted it on Twitter:

Just leaving aside the manifest absurdity of thinking either Lennox Lewis or Henry Kissinger could be FIDE President, I wondered what "diplomatic skills" Ray was proposing that Kissinger might bring to the job.

Will he overthrow Kirsan in a coup and have his supporters tortured in a football stadium?

Will he have FIDE headquarters secretly and illegally bombed?

I think we should not be told.
