Tuesday Talk

1 Our usually reliable sources have challenged us to find out how many politicians are in the process of constructing mansions across the country. We started the work, and so far, we have counted five, and we are continuing our audit.

2 The debate about ditching the monarchy is revived once more on the occasion of celebrating Elizabeth II as the longest-reigning monarch. No change is anticipated because Jamaicans adore their Queen and her heirs. Just watch how Jamaicans will roll out the red carpet and curtesy their way into the news when another Royal visitor comes ashore in the next few weeks.

3 It's nice to hear that at least one political party is awash with cash. In these hard times, it is hard to imagine where all these donations are coming from. Anyway, merchants and service providers who have been so hard done by political parties will eagerly collect now that the treasure chest is overflowing.
