2019 election watch: defection update.  

I am sitting here, in a friend’s office, and somehow, my mind is on the elections that are going to be held next year, instead of what I came here to do, which is to see someone. While I wait for my host, I am going to ruminate on the latest round of defections and cross carpetings that are fast becoming a regular feature of our political landscape in the build-up to the 2019 general elections. Of course, it is no longer news that the Senate president has defected from…

The other day, I was at a  friend’s house when her four year old son ran out of his room with a “packed” bag containing the approximation of his life’s belongings as follows: One plate and spoon – for mixing golden morn sturvs. The top half of his pyjamas.

Let us flash back a…

This really is about the biggest comedy we have all been involved in so far, we don’t even know who the director is, or the producer, all we know are the parts we are acting, or being made to act.
