Top 10 Reasons Why Mauritius Was the Best Managed Country in the World With Berenger as PM

No. 10. Wait till we hear the reason why expensive sports coupes have been purchased for the SIDS conference. Will 20% of the revenue shortfall be footed by senior citizens?

No. 9. We won’t send Buckland and Milazar to represent us in the 100m dash and quarter-miler anymore – we’ll send 2 folks that live closest to the airport as measured by the GPS.

No. 8. Dead bodies of stray dogs have to be routinely avoided on our motorways and main road arteries.

No. 7. An economy that was in the doldrums in the morning is made to roar back with a vengeance in the afternoon. The same economy is pronounced lifeless the following morning.

No. 6. We lose a number of spots in several competitiveness and corruption rankings year after year - Management Guru, Tom Peters is definitely nuts to say that perception IS reality.

No. 5. The response to soaring unemployment has been to change the way it is computed.

No. 4. The two oil shocks of the 1970’s and the Volcker deflation never happened - revisionists are having a ball!

No. 3. Actual bye-election results are not as good as opinion polls.

No. 2. A very strong link between an ethnic wardrobe and delivery of a stellar economic performance has been established. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences may be missing something here.

And the No. 1 reason why Mauritius is the best managed country in the world is 

No. 1. Nobody in his right mind would say so!
