Who wants to be a millionaire? Zimbabweans don’t!

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The Zimbabwean Dollar – revalued Making a $1,000 note worth $1 for example at least once – is now standing at almost ZWN$500 to the pound.  Inflation has jumped to 2,200% in the last month alone.

Before the Zimbabwean Dollar was revalued, a toilet roll cost over $145,000 which was the equivalent of about 45p.

The average gross national income of a Zimbabwean is £170 per year and life expectency is down to just 37 years old for both males and females.  Unemployment is estimated at around 80%.

    Na, land-grabbing and communal farming is too socialist for New Liebour.
