Homes & Gardens

As reported by our friends at Penultimos Dias, the Castro regime has confirmed that it’s failed to meet its modest home building target for the past year. Again.

According to a news report on State television, only 52,600 new houses were completed during 2007 – about 75 per cent of the number promised in the first place.

But don’t think for a moment that this embarrassing shortfall is a reflection on the ineptitude of the regime.

A senior official told Reuters the problem is due to the fact that some 1,600 building and construction workers were sacked or reprimanded during the year for “economic crimes” and “corruption”.

Corruption? In a communist society where the government controls absolutely everything? Don't say such things. It will scare the children.
