While reading last Wednesday’s paper, I tried to decide which was the least disturbing: the Chinese yuan’s decreasing value, or the Aussies’ take on same-sex marriage. Yet I must admit that the story about the salaries of those in the semi-autonomous bracket took the cake. I bet that was even more difficult to swallow than a hard-candy Christmas.
But what can you say? It’s a tell-tale of white-washed politics, verbal inflation, and cultural correctness in Le Motu o Fiafiaga.
