Chile: Brown Meets Pinochet

British Prime Minister Gorden Brown has met Michelle Bachelet on a visit to Chile and 'praised her for her courage' under torture.
"President Bachelet was very courageous and brave," he said of the experience of the president whose father and boyfriend were tortured to death. "I will be telling her [...] that Britain abhors torture."

Honestly, I hope she managed to keep a straight face while he was saying that.
