Portuguese sense of morality

ZON Multimedia, a big Multimedia and Telecommunications company here in Portugal, officially entered the Angolan market. So far so good. To do it, they hired the daughter of the Angolan president/dictator/son of a bitc*, José Eduardo dos Santos, one of the most corrupt men alive. Angola is a country of contrasts, you have some of the world most expensive houses there. It is also a place where you'll find people in great misery, without food or water. And this portuguese company cooperates with these corrupt leaders that feed on their people's ignorance to make a life of luxury.


I saw underpants evaluated in 300000€ (2588674.50 NOK) just because an artist had drawn a dollar sign on them.

Food safety first, Humans second!

I have not posted in a while because i've had a lot of work lately, but this i could not let escape the eyes of whoever is out there wanting to know the other side of portuguese society.
There's a government agency here called "ASAE" which is suposed to be responsible for the economic and food safety. Today they shut down a mess room that served meals to the homeless because they found some dead cocroaches on the kitchen's floor. Way to go Portugal!
Moreover.. a little bird told me that the person who is directing this agency usually has luch in a luxury restaurant somewhere in Lisbon.. some sense of perspective hey?
