Baby boom
Nine months ago, we went through the first Covid-19 lockdown, forcing many families to remain indoors for weeks. It was predicted then that there would be a baby boom around this time. True.
One missing
If there are now 110 MPs in Parliament and the Opposition claim they have 55, the other 55 must be with the Government, right? No, Moresby North West MP Sir Mekere Morauta who is in Australia has not indicated which side he is supporting. Interesting, either way.
Little secret
There must have been more discussed at the National Alliance Party caucus last weekend than what we have been told so far. Little secrets.
Poor trees
City Fathers want to conserve trees around the city yet its workers continue to cut them down everywhere, even those marked “protected trees”. Who is fooling who?
Bard of Avon
The second person to receive the Covid-19 vaccine is British man William Shakespeare. No, not the famous playwright, poet and actor, although they hail from the same area – Stratford-upon-Avon in London.
McCaw is best
The International Rugby Union has named former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw as the Player of the Decade (2010 – 2020). Fiji’s Jerry Tuwai is the Rugby Sevens Player of the Decade.
