Sinecure anyone?

I read in the papers about the ghastly bombing in Mogadishu yesterday. That three Ministers had been amonghst the 22 dead.

And then I read that one of the Ministers that had been injured was this chap.

The Somalia Minister for Tourism. Yes, that's right Tourism (including wildlife).

That has just got to be the biggest fake job in the history of fake jobs. How much is he being paid, and by whom? To do what?

GT Old Chap,

Never mind this Minister of Tourism - we can apply the same question to just about every member of the present government from GB downwards!

Before now I never realised one could get a first class honours degree in F*** Ups!

Not only is it the ultimate fake job, but any claim by a 'government' to have monopoly of force in Somalia is like claiming to have pluralism in Year Zero Cambodia!
