If you haven't got a clue how to deal with discontent against your policies and can not control riots, go ahead and switch off SMSing! That will totally sort out your problem, if you are an ostrich government, that is.
I thought we were beyond the days of Mugabe ranting stupid stuff like Britain is a nation of "faggots", in response to a question about Zim being kicked out of the Commonwealth...Or the late Yassir Arafat totally losing his cool on live TV and screaming at the female journalist calling her..."Stupid woman"!
Is there a "what not to do" TV programme for goon governments? I strongly recommend one.
