all along i thought mr Zahoor was fair

but a tiny band of uniates

who the state of the ukraine

has raised

has nourished

has fed

has schooled

has empowered

has still in its feeble minds

somehow this unholly aim

of bringing the regime down

and bringing back LIBERTY, FRATERNITY AND EQUALITY

under the guise of

UNIATE PROLETERIATISM

well lads and gents

this is no starter

it never was a starter

MR ZAHOOR has called your bluff...

NO MOR FREE RIDE

go out and earn your mullah....

propagate your

FILTHY UNIATE MATERIAL

but not under MR ZAHOOR's good name

and MR ZAHOOR's good offices

you have tried, you editorial staff

MR ZAHOOR's gave your time and latitude

BUT

you stuffed it a big time

the music has stopped now

the ball is in your court;

it is just $1

go UNIATES

you have an unparalled opoortunity

BUT THIS TIME

no one, i repeat no one

is going to stroke your whims

so that you can INDULGE

just like MR bonner

seriously...

what a sad, deluded bunch of uniate elite...

thank you

MR ZAHOOR

it has been coming to them

no money, no honey

uniates...

cia-o

Mister Zahoor has been given an offer he can't refuse. The Party of Russians will pay him off, making this grand gesture a media stunt.
