Mr. Philemon Yang, match-fixer

Camfoot

Remembering Mr. Yang, the dutiful Dean of the diplomatic corps in Ottawa, Canada, for so many years, the mild-mannered gentleman who drove a cute jalopy in town and entertained his visitors on Clemow Avenue with benevolence and respect, and watching him now entangled in the web of largely despicable football shenanigans, leads to a sobering reality. A Prime Minister, like any ordinary stiff, has to make a living, i.e. do what he is told to do in exchange for a pay check.

I must admit I was particularly cock-a-hoop over the appointment of Mr. Yang. There is something regal in his demeanour ; you would think that he would bring neatness, accountability and respect for the ordinary man just by being there. I did bet that his mere presence would bring about a nicer and friendlier government as most mandarins would readily buy into his charming style and stoop to copy it. In a different setting, I believe that Mr. Yang could move mountains.

But fixing a broken system of football that has been left to rot for so many years still does not strike me as being a particularly enjoyable endeavour for Mr. Yang. Actually, I believe that he never thought he would be one day assigned to directly intervene in such an elbows-up environment of ruffians and freeloaders as football is. I hope he survives unscarred, his mind and manners untouched, his trademark love for Cuban puros still vibrant.

    Dear Leon Gwod,
    I hate to make this remark again about your google translated English articles.
    The article first of all does not make any sense and there are expressions in it that are not of English expression . Find below a few examples :
    1-largely despicable football shenanigans, leads to a sobering reality
    2-I must admit I was particularly cock-a-hoop over the appointment of Mr. Yang
    3- friendlier government as most mandarins would readily buy into his charming style and stoop to copy it
    4-an elbows-up environment of ruffians and freeloaders as football is
    5-his trademark love for Cuban puros still vibrant

    Congratulations
