Defending the indefensible
Great attention is being placed on the allegation that Glenn Ramadharsingh put his hand on the flight attendant during the incident aboard the domestic airline.
Serious as this may be, there is a larger, more important issue which seems indisputable and which is not being given the primary focus. The Minister, by refusing to act on a legitimate request made by a crew member, endangered the safety of the aircraft and all passengers aboard.
To add insult to injury, the Minister went on television on the Crime Watch programme where the host’s agenda seems to have been a pathetic attempt to bolster whatever popularity the Minister may still have. Also, the host’s assertion that nobody could demand that he (the host) move his bag on the aircraft because of who he is and his disgusting attempt to paint a sinister portrait of the flight attendant are reprehensible.
