Mauritius To Soon Run Out of Sanatogen

I mean it's almost a year since the Prime Minister has promised the imminent publication of a white paper on electoral reform. He has also given us the impression he's struggling intellectually with it. Which has made me wonder over the past twelve months if his efforts were in the same league as when Andre Wiles finally solved Fermat's Last Problem. But he doesn't have to wreck whatever brains he may have. All he has to do is to put a few very broad parameters in a document and place it on the web. Along with all relevant data. And let us Mauritians play with this puzzle.

With all the smart minds around -- of the non-TINA variety -- we should see many great ideas flowing in quickly. As we iterate to something better. Eminently thoughtful. To something that cannot be obliterated in a flash. Unlike that evil proposal which was so weak that it was completely demolished in a few minutes.

So, releasing a white paper is a matter of timing? This thing is getting funnier by the day.
