n.— «If our military strategists feel that tear gas and batons would be enough to control an enraged mob of “parteys’ they are deluding themselves. Things have progressed to the stage in Male’ today where almost every “partey” carries a knife. Like certain clans in Arabia who regard the ceremonial daggers they carry as part of their dress code, the damned and the disillusioned generation of our youth, who call themselves “parteys,” and who constitute the majority, carry flick knives and box-cutters. And they rule the streets.» —“President Gayyoom: the Agent Provocateur?” by Ali Rasheed (Maldives) June 28, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
