Do your jobs, politicians
Why do we Trinidadians feel we must re-invent the wheel?
I refer to important pieces of legislation that are desperately needed to improve the our lives. The three that immediately come to mind are:
1) The Beverage Container Bill
2) The Dangerous Dog Bill
3) Gang/Gun Control Bill
Surely there are other countries that have similar laws that can be used in T&T or is it that our legislators are conceited enough to believe they know best?
Why must we continue to experience the continuing saga of people being mauled by dogs, gangsters out on bail committing crimes and floods caused by drains blocked with discarded beverage containers, while the politicians blame each other?
Simple answer: No political will.
For God’s sake, and that of T&T, get off your tails and do the job you were elected to do instead of pandering to every Tom, Dick and Harrilal stakeholder. Think of the good to the nation, not only your future.
