Aroma still lingering


Added 08 February 2018


AN EXTRACT I heard on radio of a presentation made by the Prime Minister at a recent party political meeting suggested that he and his party members were gifted in identifying certain political aromas.

So help me, Prime Minister, what identifying aroma would you give to a promise made before an election that there would be no lay-offs only to do just that to 3 000 good folk immediately after the election?

A popular fragrance sometime back had the identifier Number One. Perhaps the aroma of that political promise might be Graeme Hall Number 1 or perhaps South Coast Number 2 or a more subtle River Tamarind Number Tree.

Prime Minister, seems like you hoped we would have had a collective memory loss but the aroma has lingered for five years.
