    Monday Morning – With Commie Yummies for Brunch! 


    Just stirring gently, no need to rush around, confident the rainy season will not begin today, or hopefully this month of August.

    But I was up in time for the 8.30am news, with a VERY pretty Commie Korean soldier, warning the South Korean ‘gangsters’ to behave themselves. or the Dear Leader, Comrade Kim, would come and get ’em, astride one of his marvellous missiles.

    • Hard to believe anybody, even somebody living under a hereditary despotic gangster godfather, would talk such rot, but then she is not as lucky as we, who are mostly still free to say what we think (unless of course we upset uptights with insensitive ‘phobia’ comments!)

    But I WAS impressed by her good looks. I had a quick search of Google to see if i could find her picture to delight you – a cutie makes Mondays much more bearable – but no joy, so I offer you this instead, more North Korean yummies.

    What a shame to see them regimented thus, when they would be much more enjoyable sitting seductively outside a cafe, or propped provocatively on bar-stools in those short skirts.

    Does NK have bars? or clubs? or discos?

    I’m told that even in Red Vietnam  the regime has had to reconcile itself to agreeable nightlife.

    But I still prefer Jakarta, where even the poorest working-man can revel in ‘dimly-lit stalls!’

    Yeah, I know, you can’t see what’s going on – that’s the point of being dimly lit!

      A bright beginning to my working week, Ross.
      Vietnam’s bars during the war were said to be the best in Asia but I wasn’t around for that. I can say the girls there last year were as lovely but not as friendly as Jakarta’s.

    Look Who Won Tunisia’s Election! 


     NORMAL Tunisian women!

    ————-

    Reasons to be cheerful!

    Not just a pretty picture of pretty women, who dress like women and not like sacks of spuds – no burkas, not even a drab head-scarf shrouding their God-given good looks!

    These lovely Tunisian ladies are celebrating the victory of their secularist party over the Islamists who previously formed the government.

    ======================

     

    • But beware.

    According to BBC news, the ousted sectarians are calling on the winners to form an inclusive government. In other words, having just been neatly booted out, they want back in, via some back-room deal!

    Not perhaps surprisingly, this exhortation is echoed by the Guardian, which warns darkly that whether Nidaa Tounes (the secular winners) crafts an inclusive coalition or drifts toward authoritarian models of decades past remains to be seen.

    You’d think the Guardian might just be content to respect the verdict of the people.

     

    At least Tunisia managed to get out from under Islamist rule without the need for a popularly backed military intervention.

      I have spent the past hour reading through some of your older posts looking for this one.
      That’s because I heard on the news, I think France 24, that the interim constitution in Sudan has turned out to be much better than expected, a big improvement on the old sectarian regime.
      No mention of Islam or any other religion.
      I thought you should write about such a positive development but knowing your Canadian connections, you’ll be preoccupied with that story.
