The government’s ‘thermometer’
I HEARD the funniest news lately on the alleged plan of a group of lawmakers to present an interpellation request against HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Mohammad Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah over the rising temperature in the country. Perhaps, a grilling request on increasing humidity is also underway, because some lawmakers want to hold the government responsible for the soaring temperatures and humidity in Kuwait.
Although the temperature has indeed reached above 50 degrees Celsius which, by the way, is not detected by the government’s ‘thermometer’ apparently to avoid the implementation of a law issued by the International Labor Organization on stopping work in all institutions once the temperature exceeds 50 degrees Celsius, it seems this issue is not important. What really matters is the interrogation of the premier over the rising temperature!
Maybe it is now time to demand a change in the weather in Kuwait to be similar to that of Switzerland where the premier usually spends his holidays. Forgive us!
