LETTERS: Cat out of the bag

Yes, I know we have sent a boy to do a man’s work.

I just wish a recent letter on climate change had not let the “cat out of the bag” because our government spends so much time, money and effort keeping us all in a make believe world.

Now after reading the letter it has put doubt in my mind as to whether or not the world leaders were going to make amends to the error of their ways and reverse this global warming thing.

Yes, I know we have sent a boy to do a man’s work. Yes, he is a charming prime minister — although I am yet to see the basket with a cobra in it or the penny whistle he is supposed to blow. I was a believer. I even got stumped as to who my neighbour’s address and name were, I always had a terrible time remembering names. Usually I get by with attracting someone’s attention by: hey you, how are doing buddy? Waz up? etc.

Oh well, I do believe in Santa and the Tooth Fairy, that is unless a letter is going to tell me different. And a Merry Christmas to even you Mr. Scrooge. PS please don’t put “expletive” in brackets where I have mentioned Christmas. We are censored enough already as it is.
