    Fahie must be commended. He has brought the VIP from the dead back to life. This is the sign of a great leader.

    Abba Eban, Israeli diplomat, is credited with the quote “That Arabs never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. Translation: When opportunity avails itself it must be capitalized upon. The reality on the ground is that the NDP is delivering the opposition a great opportunity to replace it. Will the opposition squander the opportunity? To avoid squandering the opportunity talk must come with action. Talk, talk, talk.......etc is not enough; challengers must put meat on the bone. They must answer the question where is the beef.
