7th February 2009 – A Tyrant’s Diary

7th February 2009

 

Dear Diary,

 

The war is finally over.

Bimkunda has been caught and elections have been announced.

But my people are not celebrating. Not the way they did when Killinochchi was captured.

I was confused at first but I suddenly realized why.

There is no one left to report the victory!!!

All the journalists have been killed and the media stations burnt down.

Of course the paper that brings you the daily news is still being printed and the media stations down Bullers road are still functioning.

But the people don’t believe them anyway.

I’m bored. Maybe I’ll start another war.
