Mark Thatcher, King of Africa

From Black Looks, the Crossfader notes that The Guardian UK reports that future U.S. resident, Mark Thatcher, son of the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, has entered into a plea agreement whereby he will plead guilty to taking part in a thwarted coup in Equitorial Guinea. Fitting with what we've come to (sadly) expect, the punishment for trying to steal a small African country is a mere £300,000.

Upon paying the fine, Mr. Thatcher will be allowed to emigrate to the U.S. to join his family becoming perhaps the first non-Latin American coup artist to call the America home. Welcome. Reports are that Thatcher will be putting together "White Man's Burden" safari tours of Rhodesia and the Congo Free State.
