Who survives 11 years

Who survives 11 years Vojislav Šešelj leaves the scene as he entered it, a monument to other people’s failures. Having constructed his first political career in Bosnia-Hercegovina on the strength of (largely accurate) claims of corruption in the local Communist party, he went on to build a second one in Serbia with an opposition party constructed by counterintelligence services designed to preemptively occupy political space that could eventually be taken up by a genuine opposition party. Building on a career that drew on the failure of two consecutive parties, he made a well-publicised third career in The Hague drawing on the failures of legal and medical institutions.
