Before the questions asked by the international media or those of analysts, we find that the Spanish prime minister's attitude was positive as far as Spain's interests and true at the personal level.
These questions were recently asked but found no answers in the UN or with Aznar who was the first Spanish prime minister to visit Libya after less than a week passed on lifting the sanctions.
It seems that the only thing General Gadhafi did not accept is the normalization with Israel, for the Spanish prime minister avoided, at least openly, talking about this issue including holding a European and Middle East conference similar to Barcelona II, in addition to his host's opinion on the peace process, except regarding the Roadmap.

 BBC - Comedy Guide - Yes, Prime Minister
Although it was possible to believe that Hacker could be a minister - being photographed drunk after a party, making a fool of himself in radio and television interviews with his inability to answer straightforward questions - it was stretching credibility to see the man as Prime Minister and the storylines suffered accordingly.
On 7 February 2004, the Yes Minister and Yes, Prime Minister premise was championed by Armando Iannucci for the BBC2 series that surveyed the candidates in the national poll Britain's Best Sitcom.
While the message of the overall premise remained intact - that power is in the hands of those who run the bank, not those who sign the cheques - Yes, Prime Minister was second-rate compared to Yes Minister, a disappointing dessert after a sumptuous main course.

 U.K. Politics Trivia and Quizzes
This is a selection of questions about various British Prime Ministers who held office during the 20th century.
The office of Prime Minister is the pinnacle of any British politican's career, but this quiz, I hope, takes a different look at the holders of that office.
Probably no other past British Prime Minister is more widely admired than Churchill, so it is more than a little surprising that this is the first Funtrivia quiz on him.

 Ved Mehta Writings A Family Affair
Gandhi's successors as Prime Minister, Morarji Desai and Charan Singh, were in their turn forced out of office—in the main because of questions about the political influence of their families.
Mehta holds that India, although it is the world's most populous parliamentary democracy, remains a feudal society, organized around principles of caste and family: Jawaharlal Nehru and his daughter, Indira Gandhi, have, between them, ruled India as Prime Ministers for all but four of its years as an independent nation, and by the mid-seventies Mrs.
Gandhi survived charges of nepotism and corruption to sweep back into power in 1980; how Sanjay was at last elected to office, as a member of Parliament; and how mother and son reestablished their court autocracy in New Delhi, with Sanjay assuming the role of heir apparent.

On the following day, the Prime Minister of Rwanda was killed, and soon, Rwanda was overtaken by a humanitarian catastrophe which the then United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros Ghali characterised in his memoirs as a case of "Tropical Nazism".
The case of Rwanda highlights how these two questions tend to be resolved in practice, and demonstrates some of the weaknesses of international law in the area of humanitarian crisis.
In short, the major powers initially felt that no significant strategic interests were at stake in Rwanda, and in the early stages of the crisis opted not to support a peacekeeping mission that might have averted the explosion to hundreds of thousands of deaths.
