The post Seattle DOHA conference on WTO regulations has certainly affected CARICOM’s RNM negotiating position on the future shape of the FTAA as well as MERCOSUR’S approach to regional integration taking into account Post Lome EU moves and in keeping with the EBA initiative and its proposed EPA’s with the ACP’s LDC’s MDC’s and DVD’s. This will have significance for the USA CBTPA originally the CBA now known colloquially as “a little T&A” and will have an influence on the West African UEMOA ECOWAS and UR-ANAS affecting the South/ South cooperation and the sustainable development of globalized gobbledegook.
Loving criminals, evil philanthropists
It was no surprise that the wife of a recently shot bandit said her hubbie was good at the household chores and very loving. It is well known that all criminals are the sweetest little angels when at home and actually make model husbands. Not having an 8 to 4 job helps. She said the slain bandit was good at chores; presumably she meant jimmying sticky doors and sharpening kitchen knives. So being married to a criminal has its advantages girls.
The tearful eulogies at their funerals tend to gloss over the more awkward moments of their lives. The time they shot the prison guard ...(a slip of the hand ...apologies to the relatives.) Instead they are described as caring and generous, albeit with other people’s money, and great fathers: “Wait little one, Daddy has to go kill a policeman.” The mother in particular cannot accept that her little one turned out so bad, since it would reflect poorly on her parental skills. Although she might admit he was a bit of a wild child. Perhaps she did not beat him enough.
The flip side of this is that one must naturally assume that all those kind people you see in the newspaper donating powdered milk or feeding the poor are in fact evil and abusive monsters when at home and have to make up for their deplorable behaviour when they go out in public. Beware the smiling philanthropist.
The most heinous of crimes
This is a copy of a speech made by the Honourable Minister of Home Affairs at one of the crime consultations:
Ladies and gentlemen,
This has to stop! Enough is enough! A few lawless criminals are bringing this country to its knees. Their inconsiderate and ruthless behaviour, their deliberate flouting of the laws of the land, are going to end. The police force is ready to fight back with all at its disposal; new legislation is to be passed urgently through parliament. Yes, my comrades! The days of drivers not dipping their headlights to oncoming traffic are numbered.
