Etienne Doesn't Make the Grades

But Rashid Beebeejaun, who apparently did, reassured everybody when he said that Sinatambou is a bright guy. I found all of that kind of weird because I can't remember what Beebeejaun should be remembered for since he returned to power in 2005. As a matter of fact, I have an extremely hard time recalling what he achieved as a Minister between 1996 and 2000.

If my math is as good as yours that's a full eight years in the cabinet (1/5 of the time since the Union Jack was lowered if you prefer fractions). Granted he did not literally transform his ministerial responsibilities into a job search as one globe-trotting MSM-MMM Minister did. But then again, the latter performance hardly qualifies as a benchmark.

In a similar vein you get the impression by looking at how they work and what they say that Nita Deerpalsing and Cader Sayed-Hossen need at least 800 years each to finally achieve some tangible democratisation of the economy. And of course there is Navinchandra: 8 years as Prime Minister and all that he's achieved in the top job of the land fit comfortably on a stamp.

Beebeejaun is an important man - he is a symbol of the Muslim vote. So he doesn't have to do anything - he gets a car which flies on the roads whilst others are forced to pull over, talks to us as if he was addressing kids, reminds us he is a sage by asking the PM do say this every now and then, he has no 'bilan' to produce.....he is a freeman....he will stay No2 until he is nominated as President after SAJ goes to hell, sorry heaven.

Yeah, he helped the BAI get a plot of land in MOKA, remember the BAI said the hospital was going to be near the seaside somewhere Magic.
