See and blind, hear and deaf!

The Editor, Sir:

My three-year-old son puts his hands over his eyes and sings with glee, "Daddy you can't see me!". To block out the incessant and 'annoying' noise of her baby brother, my seven-year-old daughter says. "Shut up Kareem, lalalalalalala, I can't hear you. You are soooooo annoying." I think I have the Government living at my house.

This Government seems to think that if they cover their eyes and sing "lalalalalalah" nobody will see beyond their falsehoods and deception.

The DPP passes the buck in the Hibbert case when nobody has been asked to investigate the matter. Sounds to me like, "You can't see me!"

The prime minister defends the Minister of Tourism for deceiving the Cabinet, and slaps the other officers on the wrist. That is definitely, "Lalalalalalah, shut up, you are so annoying!"


Then the prime minister disappears from view on the Manatt, Phelps & Phillips issue. While the PM plays hide-and-seek, young Vaz stands up, looks me squarely in the eye and says, "No daddy, I didn't eat the chicken," although the evidence is smeared all over his mouth. He thinks we "born big so"!

Mrs Simpson Miller said the PM is hoping the questions will go away. I was so glad to hear her say: "They will not!" But the Opposition needs to come harder, tougher and put more pressure in so many areas. As little Kareem would say, "Are they mouses?"

This Government makes me want to cover my eyes so that I can disappear. Maybe then so will the spiralling gas bill and the weekly increases at the supermarket or trying to find the wage bill for my small and shrinking business. When the taxman comes, I will stand in front of him, cover my eyes and sing, "Lalalalalah, I can't see you, shut up, you are sooooo annoying." I wish!

They all need a good spanking!

I am, etc.,
