First lessons of a failed ‘Coup’

Written by
Explaining the law of dialectics in a pictorial manner, Mao Tse-Tung said that “A bad weather is sometimes conditional for a good spring.” This is precisely the lesson to be learned from the political cyclone that hit the country during the past two weeks. And now, with a helping hand from the civil society to the wheel of history, nothing will be as before.

The flip-flop exercise

Written by
It is amazing how the leader of the Labour Party and Prime Minister Dr. Navin Ramgoolam and the leader of the Opposition and leader of the MMM Mr. Paul Bérenger have indulged in a flip-flop exercise on a national issue like electoral reform.
My dear Billy,
Life’s long journey is often punctuated by the sad news of the demise of some close relative, cherished friend or acquaintance. Suddenly they feel tired or fed up and command the world to stop for them to get out.

Question Time

Written by
Two weeks ago, we wrote, under the title ‘In the name of Democracy’, “constitutional change having been mentioned, it would be naive to believe, given the compromise to come between Ramgoolam and Bérenger, that Electoral Reform is not in fact a first step towards a constitutional overhaul, especially with a president endowed with effective powers. Time will tell who, tomorrow, shall install himself as General Manager or as Executive Chairman of the Mauritius Corporation.”

Billet : Le vainqueur et le grand perdant

Written by
Les tractations entre le MMM et le PTr ont pris fin, jeudi après-midi. Elles se sont soldées sur un triomphe du leader du PTr, Navin Ramgoolam, qui a pu amadouer le leader de l’Opposition, Paul Bérenger, avec son Livre blanc sur la réforme électorale.
Bearing in mind that not every political party can field candidates in every constituency because of financial constraints, it would be unjust, unfair and discriminatory to impose an arbitrary 10% of the national vote to be entitled for PR seat/s. [...]

Theatrical politics at its best

Written by
It is more than obvious that the new alliance between the Labour Party and the MMM will be put on hold and it seems that the Remake will soon breathe its last. The way the Prime Minister Dr. Navin Ramgoolam has enticed the leader of the Opposition and of the MMM Mr. Paul Bérenger with the Electoral Reform and the Second Republic is quite impressive.
My dear Billy,
When I was a young boy in primary school, we were taught the song “Rule Britannia,” which ends with the line “And Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.”

Premiers enseignements d’un coup d’État manqué

Written by
Expliquant la loi de la dialectique de manière imagée, Mao Tsé-toung disait que « dans un mauvais temps, il y a toujours les conditions d’un bon printemps ». C’est précisément l’enseignement qu’il faut tirer du cyclone politique qui a frappé le pays durant ces deux dernières semaines. Et désormais, avec un coup de main de la société civile à la roue de l’Histoire, plus rien ne sera comme avant.
Le premier Chinois à avoir foulé le sol mauricien est un ancien meurtrier du nom de Sincko (phonétique néerlandaise). Il a débarqué à Maurice le 1er mai 1654 avec trois autres bagnards chinois, tous originaires de Jambi, Batavia (Indonésie) dont les noms sont toujours inconnus jusqu’ici.
