V ulgarity in Parliament,
dismissive remarks...are these
the lengths people will go for
power? Whatever happened to
wanting to run a country for
the betterment of the nation
and all its people? And let me
guess, the response will be
"Oh goood, nah." A few jokes
will be made; a few conversa-
tions had at dinner tables, in
bars; the perpetrators will
leave the country for a few
weeks; storm will blow over
and everything will be forgot-
ten; they will return to share
in the jokes later.
What will it take T&T for
you to get angry? To be so
vexed by what is being done
to you that you use that anger
not for violent means but for
purposeful, lawful and mean-
ingful actions to effect change.
Throughout all sects of our
society, those that would do
harm are far too purposeful
(and resourceful) and those
that mean well, far too pas-
As for the state of our pol-
itics and the abandonment of
civility and good practice by
our elected officials, we have
no one but ourselves to
blame. It takes a politician a
lot less time to come up
with a witty put-down of his
opponent than it does to
come up with a workable
plan of action that could be
presented to the people.
But if that s all it takes to
have an effective campaign
and we keep responding posi-
tively to the picong and divi-
siveness, why would they
bother? Let the politicians
know that we want to be
taken seriously. Don t laugh at
the jokes/jabs at others.
Instead shout and ask:
• What is your plan for
education, for health care?
• What are you going to do
about the epidemic of so
many young people turning to
can trust you and that you are
not one of those benefiting
from and allowing the crimi-
nal heads to operate?
• What is the plan for our
ensure transparency and good
governance under your watch?
• How do you plan to better
the relations between govt and
the unions and reduce the
widening social and economic
gaps amongst the people?
They can get their own
kicks by talking about the
alleged PM s drinking habits or
Dr Rowley s Carnival antics,
but shout and make it clear
that we demand better. No
plan, no vote.
WE MUST BLAME OURSELVES
FOR STATE OF POLITICS

BRINGING DOWN THE POWER Election near when 'fighting
corruption' makes agenda
Politicians in T&T are a bunch of deceitful comedians.
There is no getting away from the fact that an election is
looming. Just look at the promises already being made be-
fore things start brewing up.
What were these guys dong for the last five years? Why
wasn't for instance, corruption not made a priority? Why
was it not heading the agenda for both the Government and
the Opposition during the last five years? Why wasn't action
taken to stop corruption?
They just couldn't get away from the fact that corruption
was flourishing and both side made no real effort to put a
halt to its expansion.
Now they are searching out all the perpetual evils to place
on their agenda and promising to resolve them yet again.
This is exactly what they all did in the campaign during the
last election. The wool is being pulled yet again over the
eyes of the electorate. Just have a good laugh. There is noth-
ing you could do about it. Just brace yourself for another five
years of the same political lies and deceit.
Truly grateful to Good Samaritans
On the morning of March 27, while on my way to work, my
vehicle got into some technical difficulties. This occurred on the
north-bound lane of the Uriah Butler Highway in the vicinity of
the Radio 730 station. I would like to sincerely thank the fol-
lowing individuals for assisting me during my time of need.
1. The hardworking TTPS officers who assisted me that
morning. These officers were all on motor cycle patrol and dur-
ing the incident around four or five of them showed up. Two of
the officers waited with me until the wrecker came and towed
2. The gentlemen in the two trucks who stopped and as-
sisted me. I believe one of the trucks was owned by SM Jaleel
and the guys seemed to be on their way to work as well. These
gentlemen assisted me during the morning rush hour traffic
when everyone else in the slow moving traffic passed straight
and seemed unconcerned with my obvious dilemma.
3. The wrecker driver who towed the vehicle to the garage.
Your swift response, professional manner and kind demeanor
aided in keeping me calm that morning.
4. The wonderful lady I met in the waiting room at the
garage, Ms S Singh. Your words of encouragement and prayer
will go a long way in assisting me to get through this difficult
time. You showed me how to always be thankful to the
Almighty despite the adverse circumstances.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for the assistance
rendered to me that morning and it's a pity I did not get the
names of all these good Samaritans. From the bottom of my
heart I thank you all, may the Almighty bless you and keep you
and yours safe.
I assure you that your kind deeds and words will be passed
on to aid in making this world a better place. You are indeed
shining examples of the type of people that the world needs
