‘Ah Fraid Karl’ injustice

It is my humble and simple view that the day the calypso “Ah Fraid Karl” was aired, it added fuel to the concern by many that Karl Hudson-Phillips was a disciplinarian, causing the electorate to reject him. It was a significant turning point for Trinidad and Tobago.

I say this because by not having Mr Hudson-Phillips lead this country, discipline, in spite of being one of our watchwords, became a “bad” thing and it started to disappear from the national landscape.

We are now paying for that, big time! We are no longer a disciplined nation on any front or on any level of our society. This is manifested in all that is going on.

I would suggest that the calypso did the nation an injustice.
