  1. Manuel

    Manuel is a fictional character from the BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers. Played by Andrew Sachs, he is an iconic character in British comedy history. He reappeared for a small sketch with John Cleese in We Are Most Amused in November 2008. Manuel himself appeared on the audio adaptations of Fawlty Towers as a linking narrator, explaining things from his point of view, when the series was released on audio format. The first two episodes released did not feature him at all, as the dialogue was edited and short burst of piano music would indicate a change of scene. However when the whole series was re-released, they were re-edited with Manuel's linking commentary.

    I'm aware that there are political groups in the US that are committed to confrontation, that would like to hold the people of Latin America and the Caribbean hostage, as is the case of the blockade against Cuba, which is highly promoted by Cuban politicians who have a lot of influence in the President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, but I consider the blockade inappropriate, and inhumane(...) an entire people can not suffer for the interest of a group, so the President Andrés Manuel López Obrador government must decide on this because it is a matter of human rights, which has to do with sovereignty.
