  1. What's the point? Stop using religion to further your political agenda. I don't care how many times a feudal lord circles Hubal's former shrine, runs between Isaf and Naila or kisses the black stone idol. What I care about is what you do for us peasants. Not what you do for your imaginary afterlife.

  2. Should be an interesting exhibition. Will show the disparity in govt spending on the atolls and on Male' over the last century. Very keen to see.

  3. Anni is not afraid.

    He will do whatever is necessary to help rescue Mordis.

    He has been to jail several times and now he just went to Arabian Umrah, which gets him and others from South East Asia treated like stray diseased dogs.

    This will make him popular with some bearded dimwits.

    Anni, that's what I like about you. Stretching to the limits to bring back humanity to Mordis, not just democracy.
