Fed up with gutter politics
The gutter politics that we the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago had to face over the last few weeks was just too much to bear. I am totally fed-up of the theatrics and the gimmicks that are brought to the forefront on political campaigns.
Two parties, whilst they kept fighting amongst themselves, little did they know that their main opponent was toiling in the night for victory and in the blink of an eye, sweet victory was theirs.
As it is now, the UNC cannot win a general election. History shows that the PNM is a force to be reckoned with and this UNC party cannot defeat them. The UNC is now a fallen party and they have failed hundreds of thousands of people in this country. The results of the local government elections tells it all. The UNC have now lost three elections in a row.
Almost every one of the ministers have become self-centred, mean and arrogant. They all think they are the “Untouchables” and it’s sad that they have forgotten the real reason why they were given the ‘mantle.
The people of this country saw a light at the end of the tunnel but that light is now fading. The citizens wanted good governance, and a safer Trinidad and Tobago. Do you know what we got? We got controversy after controversy, bickering, back-biting and a lot of disappointment. All of the UNC’s hard work and good efforts have been overshadowed. People remember bad rather than good, especially when it comes to politics.
Too much time was spent and wasted on everything else but good governance. Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar, you had the power in your hands, you had the resources and the knowledge but the downfall of this Government is to be blamed on certain individuals near to you. Once they are around, you won’t get another term in office. I’m not sure if the UNC will rise again, too much damage has been done. Blame the downfall on yourself and your ministers.
Madam Prime Minister you seem not to think before you speak. Everything you say just does not make sense anymore! To me, the UNC and the PNM are of the same cloth. Tribal politics are a thing of the past but you and Mr Rowley continue on your high horses encouraging the tribalism. Trinidad and Tobago is a cosmopolitan country and I want to see a political party in power one day that reflects this.
My wish is for each citizen of this country to really think carefully about who they will vote for in the next general election. Think about yourself and your children’s future. SM Hosein
