Anita de Sousou is as Clueless

as Mahama is Incompetent

Much as common sense is common, it has unfortunately evaded Anita de Sousou same as urine has escaped the fowl. Common sense has never been common to her but rather become such a scarce expensive commodity to come by.

Whenever she opens her mouth, she spews rubbish that underscores her level of lack of intelligence, wisdom, and common sense.

I listened to her grant live radio interview to Asempa FM on Wednesday, 26 June 2013. As clueless but loud-mouthed, she made an authoritative statement on the £3,000-bond placed on Ghanaians seeking visitor-visa to the United Kingdom.

Anita, as ignorant, clueless and shameless bigot as she is, said, “The UK government has introduced that policy obliging any Ghanaian going into the UK to deposit an upfront payment deposit of £3,000-bond following from the uncouth recent impromptu demonstration against visiting- President Mahama by Ghanaians in London” As usual of her, wearing her tilted-opaque partisan lenses, she accused the NPP of masterminding the Saturday, 15 June 2013 demonstration against the incompetence, thievery and lawlessness presided over by the Mahama/Arthur-Amissah-led NDC government.

Be it known to Anita de Sousou that unlike in Ghana where the NDC government formulates laws and policies at whim, that is, at the crack of the fingers after waking up from a bad night’s nightmarish sleep, the British government comes out with a number of year’s thought-through policies. Their policies are not churned haphazardly out by any propaganda machine sitting squeakily in a corner of the party’s headquarters. Being brief with her, I would like to state that it has always been the policy of the David Cameron-led Tory government to stem immigration into the UK. Like in most of the Western world (Whiteman’s land), immigration has become the bane of their governments. The citizenries of these countries have come to hate immigrants, blaming them for the surge in unemployment confronting the nations, shortage of social accommodations, pricy accommodations, rise in crimes etc. Therefore, any political party intent to curtail immigration into their countries often stands the chance of doing well if not winning in elections.

The Tories have among other policies to reduce the number of foreigners into the UK, a year-on-year immigration quota where highly qualified immigrants needed to fill certain positions in their job industry are favoured. They are trying to flush out economic immigrants in the system let alone allowing influx of what they term as unwanted immigrants, into the nation to increase their socio-economic woes.

The policy of the £3,000-bond placed on UK-visa applicants or foreign entrants into the country is one of their policies to discourage people from coming into the country or deterring foreign visitors to overstay their visas or welcome. Once you break the duration term of your visa, you forfeit your bond-deposit fee to the UK government and also if caught, you will be repatriated to your home country.

Anita should therefore not think John Mahama is extremely important that a demonstration against him would compel the UK government to slap a punishment of £3000-bond on Ghanaians seeking entry into Britain. President Mahama is not known by anybody in the UK apart from a few those in government. He may even be known for bad, but not any good reasons. He may be known for colluding to rig election 2012, conniving to pay out judgment debts to fraudulent individuals and companies and for being utterly incompetent.

President Mahama thinks the art of successful governance is paying people to tend the NDC propaganda machine, churning out lies and nonsense to deceive the public. Instead of implementing policies that will enhance the living standards of the majority of Ghanaians if not all, he rather prefers dishing out the money to a few with loud and foul mouth to stand up for him by way of slurring his critics and opponents. This is why we are where we are today, facing all sorts of curses and condemnations.

I shall be treating Mahama’s stark incompetence as a separate topic.

I am on my way to Source radio studio to co-panel a programme this afternoon so please tune in to listen to one of the fearless sons of Kumawu/Asiampa.

I dedicate this write-up to all those seeking to know the truth that shalll set them from the tentacles of ignorance. Do not let Anita de Sousou fool you by her ignorance emanating from absurd partisanship.
