Rowley, a toothless tiger
I have always known that Opposition Leader, Dr Keith Rowley, held the reputation of being a rottweiler. I am now wondering whether the rottweiler was mixed with pitbull, because this man has become barking mad. His latest revelation is that the Attorney General by his actions and or statements in the Parliament (during the repeal of the Administration of Justice Act) has somehow prejudiced or opened up avenues so that Ish Galbaransingh and Steve Ferguson can argue their way out of pending criminal proceedings. Is he for real?
The last time I checked, Rowley was not one of the attorneys acting for the businessmen. How does he know that the businessmen's legal teams are planning to use such a strategy or is he really advising them in the public domain to follow such a course?
If he was so concerned about the businessmen and the State's prosecution, why did he not raise some kind of oral injunction in the Parliament when the debate commenced?
He couldn't because he was the one who first raised the brouhaha and the names of the businessmen ad nauseam, in the public domain. In the debate in the Parliament he barked and argued crystal clear that the Government's motive in proclaiming Section 34 of the Act was to get the businessmen off prosecution in return for millions of dollars which they had earlier funded to election campaigns.
Undoubtedly such a statement attacked the honesty, integrity and political motives of the Government. What was the Government to do? Sit back and smile.
Rowley has been barking needlessly as a means of grasping at straws and calling for resignations without merit. He has been approbating and reprobating at the same time, blowing hot and cold on almost every political issue. If you examine any of Dr Rowley's criticisms, any reasonable person will see that it is a situation of damned if you do, doomed if you don't.
If he believes that he is truly being constructive, then that can only be on account of his own hebetude. Maybe he is more of a toothless tiger rather than a rottweiler or raging bull, which his former leader called him.
Rowley should stop idling and making political mischief and do something genuine with his time. A good start would be to walk around his constituency and assist those who suffered floods recently.
