Suruma’s 2008 Budget Raises One Important Question

A sustained rise in fuel and food prices has pushed the national inflation rate to eleven point six this year which, while not an emergency in real fiscal terms, nevertheless warrants some concern. It seems Suruma’s budget has made addressing inflation a priority, from my analysis.

For example, unlike the previous budget, (2007) which was evidently aimed at inspiring consumer spending, with the view of increasing internal commercial activity through various fiscal as well as non-fiscal incentives aimed not only at foreign investors but at local small-scale businesses as well, this 2008 budget is going in the opposite direction. For example, by acting on interest rates, it looks like Suruma is trying to encourage an increase in aggregate savings. In an effort to offset inflationary pressures by withdrawing money from circulation, perhaps?

If successful, this will protect the economic gains of the  past few years, while simultaneously consolidating the future, so the only question we need to ask ourselves at here is, at exactly what point did you realise that I was bullshitting through this post?

Who did I think I was fooling.

Anyway, here is what I was really going to blog: Some of you, those with nice jobs that entail computer usage (or nice schools. Or nice homes. Or just nice cafes in the neighbourhood. Whichever) may have come across the Internet legend that has come to be known as Ken Lee.

If you had not met Ken Lee, meet Ken Lee now, by clicking the word below.

Har har! It is a hilarious rendition of a Mariah Carey song by an auditioner in the Bulgarian version of Idols! How hilarious was this song by one Natalia Hassan according to Wikipedia!

You would think that nothing worse could possibly be done to the song after that, but you would, of course be wrong. Christine’s link, please step forward.

Hi. hHi. I’m Christine’s link. Click on me a little bit, please. You will be astounded by what you see me do! I swear. Click.



  1. For a while I was worried, really worried that you were in geek overdrive and you were getting carried away.

    Yay for Ken Lee and a pox on you and your house for that link to Christine’s page. A pox.

  2. i did not even follow the links. i remember ken lee. she rocks! and she still insists it was English!

    contemplating if that second link is worth my valuable download megabytes, i have been overindulging as it stands.

    someone tip the scales for me so i can rush on over.

  3. Lol…Ken Lee is hilarious. No wonder she/the song are monstrous now. They even have a wikipedia thingie. Wow.

    Now lemme look at Christine.

    Christine felt like she was gagging everytime she got to the can’t live part…Maaaaaaan.

    But Ken Lee is the winner…mbu Ken Lee tulibudibudauchu.

  4. Everytime I have watched Ken Lee, I’ve laughed so hard….so hilarious…cheered me up when I was doing my exams.

  5. These idols and tusker project famers are a failed attempt to import American Ideas. We just cant pull them off. The earlier we realise that the better. No wonder she was sent home, how did she qualify in the first place. Or that Ninah and Wendy fron Tusker

  6. Christine is an improvement on Ken Lee. I even sort of enjoyed her rendition – a strong woman who knows what she wants is lways impressive.

    Naye tulibudibudauchu??!! Aaah Ah!

    Baz, for a moment there I thought you had got possessed with the financial wizard djin…anti you posted on Friday the 13th.

  7. hmmm….. interestin that; project fame?! idols?! they should join paddy … bitama, they will def make a better career there.

  8. i was laughing fat by the end of the first paragraph. though sometimes i wish u take on that tone without, like tumwi says, getting carried away
