This should surprise us at all, we knew of his abundant qualities already with the flurry of bills and proposals he shoved down parliament’s throat over the past 2 years. We also know of his particular predilection for fame and having his picture in the papers. I don’t know why, if I had a face like that I would hide in a dark cupboard and refuse to go out. But hey, that’s just me. I think this guy is truly driven into assuring his three wives (this is no joke, he does have 3 wives!) that he’s gonna be elected again for the next parliament, and he might well be as he’s probably the best that Riffa has to offer (please prove me wrong Riffa.)
Anyway, onto this piece of news from the GDN this morning:
MP Jassim Al Saidi is urging parliament to approve a BD1,000 Eid bonus for all Bahraini families. This is double the BD500 Eid bonus proposed by Parliament Second Deputy and Al Asala chief Shaikh Adel Al Mouawda and four other allied MPs. Yesterday, Mr Al Saidi was reported as backing a counter-proposal with four other MPs, urging the government to use the surplus generated by soaring oil prices to reduce the budget deficit, alleviate debts, finance infrastructure projects and build solid currency reserves. “Bahrainis are over-indebted and are in need of a helping hand… They deserve aid,” he told our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej.
Is that not flip-flopping? This dickhead probably thinks not, but then, he normally trips on his IQ so there is no reason to reason with him.
