Youth Awards

The National Youth Awards was held on Sunday and PM Golding seems to have had a good time.

Tuesday talk

It's coming ... soon!

1. The uniformed men are complaining that the deportee is operating much too close for their comfort. Some are even fearful that eavesdropping technology may be employed. Listen for interesting developments in the weeks ahead.

Gambling husband

2. The devoted husband tried for a long time to hide his gambling addiction from his adorable wife. However, in these tough times, it is very hard to juggle, it is even harder to maintain this addiction. The result is that the finances are coming up short so now he is seeking alliances all over town. Some of these relationships do not augur well for his type of business.

Sex ... time toname and shame!

3. The growing indecency experienced on public transportation in the city has reportedly moved to the transport centre. School girls and their partners are being regularly ejected from bathrooms when they are discovered in a compromising situation. Some people are calling for a system to name and shame the offenders.

Ponzi fallout

4. The fallout from the failed investment schemes is still having a major effect on many, including some public sector top brass. Those who are familiar with the list do not expect to hear a word of regret from some of the victims because they will be unable to explain where they got the money from in the first place. In some cases people have lost millions of dollars when they have no visible means of earning such big bucks.

Carnival Launch

LIME and Pepsi are getting ready to stage a mammoth carnival celebration.
