From my article in The Sunday Times today:
“And now, after the FATF’s greylisting, the ruling party that drove us here is rightly expecting to be confirmed in power for another five years of this rapid backsliding of the economic, and, therefore, social, environmental and political viability of this country. They’re not forcing us to re-elect them. Sure, they’re manipulating us and lying to us and deadening our resolve with trinkets and sweet talk. But we choose to fall for it.
“When they point us towards the sun, so we look at anywhere but the mess they made, we choose to look up and to chase the comforting reassurance that, no matter how dark things are down here, the sun still shines brightly.”
