Editor Leigh Bourne and his friends are at it again and they are not holding back.

Here’s a few of the topics in the first Ping Yark of 2014:

On former UK High Commissioner Arthur…

UK High Commissioner’s farewell party cancelled because only 10 people RSVP’d!!!!

“If Tony Arthur’s remit was to avoid the public’s gaze – keep in the background – smile as little as possible – come across as abrupt, aloof or act like Mr Grumpy ….then he was a roaring success !

Sadly …community wise …which is all we’re interested in …success is not a word you can attribute to Tony Arthur’s UK tenure. Many a time in these here pages have we had a pop at the relationship between him and his staff – and the chasm that existed between him and his deputy.”
