When abominable acts are perpetrated without any pangs of conscience, when all manner of thieves and cut-throats act in broad daylight with impunity, when those who are supposed to act in the public interest mistake public funds for their own private property to use as they like, one can say we are in for the worst catastrophes.Where does our redemption lie?

A new trend is emerging in our ‘plaisir’ country and I am sure that we shall get the rest of the world to stop and take notice.

L’écrivain mauricien Bertrand d’Espaignet souligne dans son ouvrage Les Bâtards de la République (2013) que «le Grand-Bassin a été un lac mystique pour les Marrons (esclaves déserteurs) aussi. Ils pensaient rejoindre l’Afrique ou Madagascar grâce à un tunnel sous la mer...

If one needs to know the state of health of the Remake, one just has to listen to what the representatives of the Party in power have to say at their insipid press conferences every Saturday. If there is no attack on the MMM then it is more than likely that the local Snowden will have briefed them about the ‘difficulties’ or , to say it in the language of this ‘plaisir’ country, the ‘macadams’ in the relations between the MMM and the MSM. But if it is otherwise, then you can safely assume otherwise.
