Hey, peoples. Hope everyone had a good Christmas and it was filled with love and cheer and all that fuzzy stuff.
So, it's almost been a year since the DLP took over the reins of government here in Bimshire and I haven't really blogged much about their progress so far because frankly I didn't have the time. Not to mention, I wanted to give them a chance to get down to work. Tis only fair, right?
Anyhoo, I think enough time has passed that we can get a measure of the men and women of Cabinet and to pass out some year-end awards in the following categories:
The Most Eloquent Minister
Most politicians like to talk, even though many of them don't often make sense. This award goes to the Minister who not only has a way with words, but appears to have the heart of a poet. The winner is...
Deputy Prime Minister and Attorney General, Freundel Stuart.
The runner-up in this category was Minister of Culture Steven Blackett, who is a former broadcaster and can make the simplest sentence sound real sweet.
The Most Photogenic Minister
The winner in this category won't come as a surprise. Never before has a Minister of Government other than a Prime Minister received so much press coverage, and did the camera ever love her! Hands down, the most camera friendly Minister was...
Minister of Family, Youth Affairs and Sport, Dr. Esther Byer Suckoo. She's much quieter these days but who knows what 2009 will bring.
More awards later....
