PETER TURNQUEST FALLS FLAT

Peter Turnquest is the country’s new Minister of Finance.  He can’t even add two and two together but never mind, he at least reads the speech that the officials give him.  He reads it uncritically too.  Whatever they give him he reads.  That is what he would have us believe when Gleyns Hanna Martin, MP […]
