...Let common sense prevail*

I HAVE noted with great interest the controversy brewing and boiling over the song “Rowlee Mudda Count” by Nermal “Massive” Gosein for Carnival 2018. Even removing the reference to the Prime Minister, it will be obvious to most people the attempt to use double entendre to introduce humour into the composition. The result is a clumsy attempt, especially when repeated often and quickly.

The problem is that there is at least one more song similar in content and purpose so far this season and a firm stand must be taken. There is a song on the airways whose chorus goes “Trump is the man for Kim!” Repeat it often and quickly enough and the result is no different to “Rowlee Mudda Count!”
