Birthday parties

IT is the season for political merry-go-round once again. That appointed time in the aftermath of every election when the smarter politicians, with the virus archipelagic, decide to jump ship – like rats in a sinking ship – and wade their way in the waters to join the new party in power. This is in order to continue partaking of the spoils, benefiting from the fortunes up for distribution in every incoming Administration’s victory. Of course, the bigger the landslide, the more “super” the coalition. Compare that to the tired lexicon of “rainbow coalition”. This is practical politics 101. Talk about personal honor? Principles? Party pledges? And loyalty to party? That was then.
