More lefty twatishness on Haiti

Yes, in The Guardian:

It also interlocks very conveniently with US economic interests in the region and in Haiti in particular. Food and water may be scarce, but some of the factories in the so-called export processing zones, where Haitians labour in sweatshop conditions, have managed to get their machines working again. Yet there is still no electricity in the areas where people are surviving in makeshift camps or under plastic sheeting in the streets.

Eeeevil bastard yanks, eh?

Hmm.

The largely government owned electricity sector in Haiti is facing a deep, permanent crisis characterized by dramatic shortages and the lowest coverage of electricity in the Western Hemisphere[1] with only about 12.5% of the population (25% if illegal connections are accounted for)having regular access to electricity.

So, umm, where there was electricity supply before the quake there is now electricity supply after the quake. Where there was not electricity supply before the quake there is not electricity supply after the quake.

Well, I just guiess that the failure of the Yanks to entirely wire the country in three weeks, to build an entire electricity generation and distribution system for an entire country, shows that they really are truly and irremediably evil then.

What bastards, eh?

    Quite.

    First we should provide decent houses to everyone in Haiti. Then attend to the water supply, and provide electricity for everyone. After that should come telephones and fibre-optic internet connections; these will be useful for all the schools and hospitals and universities the people of Haiti need.

    Then, a proper system of public welfare must be established, making sure all Haitians have a decent pension, and maternity leave, unemployment benefits and disability allowances.

    If there is any money left over, perhaps we could allow a few factories.

  2. Shouldn’t it be “twattishness”? I guess americans might keep the single consonant, as they do with “traveler”, but it doesn’t look right to me.

  3. Umm, Mark, if you are a regular with “Our Tim” then you might realize that your irony meter needs recalibrating, not that BFOD needs defending…
