Rowley overwhelmed

 It’s sad to see the poor crop of thinkers that guides the People’s National Movement (PNM) these days—blinkered, vacuous, skulking, selfish, isolationist and bigoted. It is as if, in PNM’s reckoning, life began (and flourishes) in Trinidad and Tobago only when PNM was born (and rules).

Once the PNM’s current philosophy is clearly understood, it’s easy to comprehend why Keith Rowley reacted the way he did to Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s pausing a bit on the pensions issue in order to take new insight on board.

Among other ludicrous things, he claimed she exceeded her autho­rity since the matter was still engaging Parliament’s attention, in other words, sub judice. What nonsense!

Rowley’s argument is not only inane, it displays he’s fundamentally overwhelmed by the challenges of his office.

It is expected he’d embrace the philosophy that Trinidad and Tobago is required to have a Government of the people, by the people and for the people; not one of tyranny or wajankism.
