Pakistan, Politics and the Bird flu

Our politicians are at it again, this time at a small town level in NWFP.  Rich farmers with political affiliations have been pushing local administrators to transfer local officials who are actually doing their jobs. A local poultry official was recently transferred for daring to say that there was bird flu in the area. the poultry industry in the area said it was a conspiracy against them that the WHO and the local poultry officer had declared the area had issues.. Puhlleezzz…   so now we have political decisions that sound strangely reminiscent of the 80’s and the 90’s.  This practice needs to be checked ASAP otherwise even those who want to work won’t be able to get too much done.

I am quite impressed by Zardari and Co. It hasn’t even been 6 months and I’m already wishing someone would throw them out. That’s the shortest span i’ve ever had before. Usually it would last at least a year.

But as the every optimist, things will improve, they always have, its a matter of when. Positive things are happening at individual levels we just don’t see the wider impact of it, since they tend to get overshadowed by our ever news making politicians.
