Purtugez Corridinho

The ding ding Corridinho that is now being engaged by my good friends, Aires Rodrigues and Rajeev Gomes, on the Portuguese nationality issue, has now taken farcical proportions, not worthy, in any way of their brilliant legal acumen and other public interest litigations, they so assiduously pursue.

Needless to say, Aires was the first one to cast the stone by dragging Remo in that vicious and spiteful "child abuse" case. 

A case that our supplicant police force has gladly played along. 

My humble suggestion to all the protagonists in this comical soap opera, is this: Now that all three characters in the play are Portuguese citizens, some confirmed and others alleged, would it be possible to transfer this "dumb" charade matter, to the Portuguese courts to deal with?

Our judiciary is already overburdened with far more pressing matters like murder, rape, corruption etc, which should sort itself out by the next century. 

They don't need these fire and brimstone battles, more to feed the media frenzy. 

Such fantastic lawyers, such a clever pulse on people's issues and such oversized, self-defeating egos to accompany all the good in them!

Good old Salazar, rocking in his grave, must be smiling through his skeletal teeth: Nao foi 1961..mais Goa destruio a si propria emb2016- 2017!!  (We the Portuguese couldn't screw Goa in 1961, but they are doing such a fantastic job in 2016-2017)!!

Of course leaving Hindutva and BJP out makes for a more rational analysis
