    I hope the message from the so-called sham consultations is pellucid by now. The dishonest hardliners of the Star Boy of Stupidity are ensuring that the corrupted system will remain firmly intact.

    Boycott all the other sessions put on by these hoodlums and take your grievances to the streets in a massive show of people’s power. Only the collective will and power of the people will turn the direction of the country from its archaic and criminal state to one of shared prosperity.

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 8 Thumb down 2
