Yes Qatar, No Quarter, No Bullers
ANYONE SUGGESTING Qatar bribed its way into hosting the World Cup should be thrown into prison without trial along with all the Western hypocrites suggesting that LGBT+ people shouldn’t be flogged or jailed in Qatar if they commit the crime of wearing a rainbow hat.
8 Billion Served
I WAS in form five at St Mary’s College in 1974 when the four billionth human being was born; last Tuesday, the eight billionth human being arrived. The population of the world has doubled in the time it took me to get my English O’Level and my son to start university.
High Noon for Democracy, BC
LIFE IMITATES ART in the rest of the world but, in Trinidad, life imitates Westerns. No matter how bad things get, a Trini audience or electorate just knows that, in the last reel, either the cavalry or Kamla will ride een to save the day, a faith unshaken no matter how many times they’ve voted for that party or seen that movie and know footy-well that it’s always the bandits that turn up in the end, to rape anything still breathing and loot the corpses.
Lula Fawkes Day
Remember, remember the fifth of November/ The gunpowder, treason and plot/ I know of no reason/ why gunpowder treason/ Should ever be forgot… Remember, remember Bolsanaro covid and 700m Brazilians died/ I see no reason why antivax BS should ever be retried
THE WORLD is in a better place today than on Sunday because Lula won the Brazilian election. With luck, on the other side of the pond, that hate-filled crackpot posing as the British Home Secretary might be sacked for the second and final time and the world will be on a positive roll; keep this up for another week and our most powerful weapon, love, might just have a chance to turn back the tide of rightwing hate that has poisoned human society since 2016.
