    Just the way it is...

    News, Postbag, Published on 27/05/2019

    » The headline on the March 26 Sunday editorial, "Politicians must put public first", caught my eye.

    » Re: "Majority disagree with EC endorsement of party MPs: Suan Dusit poll", (BP, May 12). A popular Latin maxim goes, "Vox populi, vox Dei," or "The voice of the people is the voice of God" and this is why countries hold elections.
