A WEEK OF NATIONAL SHAME ENDS WITH MINISTERIAL SACKINGS

We can further confirm today that De Pa now sacks his ministers on MONDAYS. In the early days of De Pa's rule, ministers and senior officials were sacked on FRIDAYS. We've been told that the reason behind the shift from Friday is so that a sacked minister is able to clear his desk during the week and leave. It's only against that background that we are prepared to understand why it took De Pa so long to end rude and mediocre ministerial performance in that so-called Social Welfare Ministry.

"MORE APPOINTMENTS TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY" OH DEAR!

And the waiting goes on and on and on. How short is this State House “shortly” please? In the last few weeks, we've turned from trying to find out what "shortly" actually meant in the context of that press release announcing the sacking of Frank Kargbo, to trying to make sense of the political tactic of promising to announce something "shortly" and then keeping the nation guessing for so long and asking FOR HOW LONG?

THE PLASTIC BAG EMERGENCY IN SALONE

This country is literally swimming in plastic. Discarded plastic bags are all over the place. Discarded plastic soft drink containers can be found everywhere. We are talking about environmental protection; we even have an Environmental Protection Agency with enough clout and money but look at what is happening to Freetown in particular.

We invite our EPA madam to drive with us along Savage Street. Let's say we start from St. John, driving towards Brookfields.

WHAT NOW SAY THE MORE TIMERS IN MAMA SALONE?

And it came to pass that De Pa told a group of European Union diplomats that this nation will go to the polls again in 2018. And it came to pass that for weeks leading to that meeting a group of highly qualified sycophants had organised themselves into MORE TIME CAMPAIGNERS, going all over the place telling people De Pa must rule Mama Salone again, and again, and again...well till thy Kingdom come.

LIKE AN OBJECT IN THE MIRROR, TRUMP IS CLOSER THAN HE APPEARS

Ask many people in and outside America they would tell you they thought Donald J. Trump was joking about wanting to be president of the greatest nation on planet earth. There's a sense in which we could argue that even Mr. Trump thought his was a big April Fool's joke. Now, after two clear primary election wins, Trump, like an object in a car's mirror, is closer to the White House that he really appears.
