Suffice it to say that strikes a thing of the past - almost obsolete.

Perhaps too the collective and overwhelming smartness of the TUF conveniently may have displaced their cleverness! For how else could we explain their "lack of understanding" that the country can’t meet the request for wage increases. The position is crystal clear: The gov't is "willing but unable" to meet the wage demands of the public servants and the PM presented facts to prove his position.
