The jackal news

The staff, Chief Editor and directors of the Jackal News Organisation has taken great exception to the, blind and intemperate swipe that the CORD leadership took at it this afternoon at a Press conference. Whilst it is understandable that the Coalition is gravely distressed by its disastrous rout at the General Election, there is no reason for it to resort to desperation and delirium as its key strategy.   It is well known that CORD’s electoral failure is directly attributable to its shambolic.

It is as if the clock had stopped in 1985, an era of partial drought, famine, harrowing news footage and the indignation of international pop stars.
