Speaking Ill of the Dead

In "A better class of fascist" Francis Beckett comments on the praises and favours heaped on Lady Diana Mosley, who died earlier this week, and asks if it is not just classism and snobbery to have found her charming and elegant and to forgive the all too obvious racism which she manifested to the end of her life.
However, the famous person who died today will really be in for some well-deserved posthumous slams; I mean, of course, Idi Amin, who only ruled for eight years and managed to oversee the killing of an estimated 500,000 of his fellow Ugandans.
