Peurvian government says "Adios to Manana" but turns up late

The Peruvian government is getting tough on lateness. It has launched a vigorous campaign to promote punctuality. This is in a country where "Peruvian time" means an hour late.

Unfortunately there is a slight snag, as reported by The Times:

Officials arrived 30 minutes late for an event to unveil details of their campaign against lateness.

My wife says of me: 'My husband doesn't do late'. The reason is I am genetically punctual is that I went to a public school where hell and earth came down on you if you were late for anything. I still have nightmares about not having the right books with me for lessons and possibly being a minute late for Double Maths.
