Nepal chaos continues.

August 4, 2016

Eight different Prime Ministers in eight years!

And you thought that Australia’s political world was a basket case…

Think again. It’s Nepal by a country mile. And that’s the half of it. The latest incumbent  at the head of the government of the land of Everest is none other that Pushpa Kamal Daha Prachanda. Who just happens to be not only , for a brief while, one of the previous seven heads of state but the head honcho of the Maoist rebels, who have embroiled the country in a prolonged and bloody civil war for well over a decade.

And if that doesn’t make your eyes water, the other startling news is that, more than a year after that 7.6 Richter scale earthquake  claimed almost 1o,ooo lives, an incredible FOUR MILLION Nepalese are STILL  having to exist in tents as the recovery programme grinds to a virtual halt.
