Morsi Ain’t No Mandela

Morsi ain’t no Mandela, nope, no way not even close. Both were the first “democratically” elected presidents, both fresh out of jail for their beliefs and, and….yes well that’s where the similarities end. Let’s see now Mandela came to power on the back of the disintegration of Apartheid, Morsi on the back of a revolution, unfortunately for Egypt he rode in on the camels back and now it’s broken.

All those straws in typical Egyptian fashion were stacked way too high. No thought was given to the bridges to be manoeuvred under, the bends and bumps along the way, the winds, often gale force, of public opinion battering against it, never mind the fuel, food, electricity, water and friendly assistance required to complete the journey. Morsi rather like a camel is running on empty, how long before his legs buckle and the whole house of straw comes crashing down.

The sooner the better ….some might say (obviously I can’t say that, that would be insulting the President and we all know what happens to those silly people) Bassem Youssef the Egyptian satirical comedian is one example, up on charges for amongst other things making fun of Morsi in this outfit, sorry but how could you not! This was taken on his tour to Pakistan, it’s a bad job when Morsi has to indulge in a variation of the Emperors new clothes, I mean where were his advisors!


His advisors, or his prime minister at least was playing truant, yes him Kandil of the “Mucky Breasts” quotes, Getting his game points up on the Smurfs Village App apparently. He tweeted ”

“Doctor Smurf prescribes cakes, pies and smurfberries as part of a healthy diet.”

Now, Egyptians need no encouragement to eat cakes or pies, not quite sure what the Smurfberries are but hey they can’t be any worse than their other diabetes inducing favourites. These people are running the country, no, no, not the Smurfs the other two eejits. Although………………

Morsi is now seeking an English teacher through AUC and has apparently completed his diplomacy lessons, phew well that’s a relief, hopefully we see a decrease in the finger wagging and “naked” quotes, but why does he need English lessons? He did his degree in America prior to working for NASA, no sorry he didn’t work for NASA that appears to have been propaganda from the Muslim Brotherhood, now retracted. Maybe the degree thingy is a bit like the NASA thingy as I can’t see how he has a PHD from an American University yet can’t speak English, weird, is Baksheesh common in America?

Getting back to Mandela, one of his most famous quotes is-

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.”

Obviously Morsi isn’t up on how newly released prisoners should conduct themselves on becoming President. He seems to have it confused with #TheArabTyrantManual, for which he is writing new chapters daily. He should have a chat with Mandela, should being the operative word, unfortunately he is more likely to give the Smurfs a call, that In itself would be ok if he got Papa Smurf or even Brainy Smurf but you just know this is how the conversation would go

Grouchy (Morsi): Where the Smurf are we?
Gutsy: Up the smurfin’ creek without a paddle, that’s where!
