Following the overthrow of Tunisia's President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali over the weekend it looks as if the protesters are now setting their sights on taking down the entire party apparatus that had kept him in power for two and a half decades. Meanwhile this morning in Cairo a man set himself alight in a replica of the same event that kicked off the Tunisian protests. Are we witnessing the start of something big about to occur across the southern Mediterranean shores, as frustration towards increasing levels of poverty, widening gulfs between rich and poor and government corruption reach boiling point? Could Mubarak, Gadaffi, et. al all find themselves heading to exile in Saudi Arabia any time soon?
