The sweet smell of success

13 June 2013, 07:18

So once again there has been a lot of the smelly stuff around, only this time it was being transported by train, on Monday, by a large number of people, on two separate trains to boot. The image of that is almost too much to contemplate. Did nobody else on the train suspect a rat, or maybe a trace of something not quite, how can I put this politely, above board, or above the belt at least?

At the risk of offending many people, carrying the poo to the leaders may seem like an appropriate tit for tat for service delivery failures , but literally flinging s**t around won’t affect those who have had their snouts in the public trough for so long that they truly believe theirs doesn’t smell any longer. And no I am not talking about the DA, although they were obviously the target of this lavatorial display.

Wait a minute – I am beginning to understand the reason behind this act. The gravy train is clearly almost on the skids, or at least it is being examined a little too closely for the comfort of those enjoying their free rides, so maybe this was an attempt either to throw the investigators off the scent, or to continue greasing the wheels, albeit in a slightly more offensive manner, if that is possible. With no tickets purchased for the trip, it’s obvious really.

Remember, all are equal, but clearly some more so than others, and anything to throw investigators off the scent is clearly fair play.
