NUTSHELL

 

THE SIGHTS

 

CHIEF negotiator for the Tigers, Bala, has been missing in action for a while now with nary a peep from the old coot regarding matters peace. The man has neither been seen nor heard of in Ole Blighty and even the Norsemen have had no contact with him, leading to concerns about the peace process.

But now the leading types have solved the mystery of the missing Bala. It seems, mama-in-law has hopped across to Blighty from down under and being the dutiful son-in-law Bala is busy showing her the sights aí la big bens and Trafalgars. And the Norsemen are hoping  Bala in the process will not lose sight of the peace process!

 

BOUNCING BACK TO HEALTH

 

AND back in the presidential abode in paradise, the Bandas were huddled in family conference last week where Satellite, A Bee and the sister with the beautiful eyes were hotly discussing the family fortunes in these difficult times, what with the Raja Pakses breathing down the family business  ó the es el ef pee. And the first concern was how to keep A Bee healthy given his penchant for walking with Johnnie and looking regal with Chivas. And the akkas were particularly con-cerned after Mallo said he dreamt of the matriarchal mum what with being superstitious and all. So now a decision has been taken to get Mallo some healthy treatment. Hmmm .. at least Mallo can now look forward to another trip. What? 

 

A LARGE ONE

 

BUT it seems that it isnít just the akkas who are worried about A Beeís health but also the green types. None more so than class chum and green man on the chair Ma-lik who also showed he has not lost his sense of humour. Ma-lik was cornered by some green types at a party recently who asked  why he had authorised a large security contingent plus vehicles for the man when he is going around attacking the greens.

Replied Ma-lik, the large contingent was because the man was large and added it was in the interest of the greens to protect A Bee, for as long as he is in the opposing camp they will continue to bicker and be the opposing ones. With friends like that would A Bee need enemies now eh? 

 

 

A COURTESY CALL

 

AND that politics is indeed the family business was more than evident last week when the gee es em boys called on Satellite with the Emir Chandiya in tow. And there they presented Satellite with a satellite phone worth $700, all on the house of course. Not bad no?

Well we leading types can only repeat the words of Abba: Ring, Ring,  Why donít you give me a call...

 

CLIPPING THE WINGS

 

THE green types also sure believe in making merry while the power lasts and the ministering angels are flying in and out like thereís no tomorrow. And with the issue becoming embarrassing the Pee Em has now put a stop to all unwanted travel and asked the angels to stay put. And yes folks, Ra-Kneel ainít the most popular guy these days with the ministering angels.
