Dear Editor,
IN the 1970s, I did my National Service at the Papaya training centre in the North West District. During military training, we became familiar with the command ‘As you were!’, meaning: ‘go back to your previous position.’ No doubt, the President, the Minister of State, and many senior functionaries in this Government are all familiar with the term, as they were all military men. Even the Minister of Finance is perhaps familiar with the term, since he was a UG student and may have had to do national service like the rest of us. As regards VAT and the 2017 budget, this is the most appropriate and desired order the President can, and should, give to his finance minister. Never mind the campaign promises, we were a lot better off ‘the way we were’.
Regards,
WILLIAM TELL
