Please pay attention, children. I say children because we should assume we're being treated as children by the sort of people who don't know how to deal with them. You. know, the types who insist on talking loud and in a condescending and seemingly intellectually challenged manner.
Stravaraland's Propaganda Broadcaster was in the throes of extended multiple orgasms yesterday, Monday, as it celebrated Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov's unconditional support for the island's stand on Kosovo. In return for our brave stand on the matter which coincides with Russia's position, Lavrov also had a few stern words for the UN Secretary General's unacceptable stand on the easing of the so-called pseudo isolation of the alleged Turkish Cypriot community.
The elation felt at the taxpayer-funded propaganda broadcaster was unprecedented. Bulgarian-trained Yiannakis Nicolaou was simply beaming with what looked like post-coital smugness. The kind of look a kid gets after getting away with not paying for an expensive hooker. The side effect of this satisfaction was a new air of confidence that led him to utter a few gems on the daytime current affairs programme on CyBC. This led to the Freudian Annan-related slip of the year when Nicolaou interrupted AKEL's Takis Hadjigeorgiou.
Also appearing on the show was Nicos Tornaritis (who has the last word in this clip, albeit off camera) and a slightly hyperactive chap called Papadakis.
Don't forget to sign the CyBC petition on your way out.
