Rowley not fit to be Opposition Leader
Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley's continues to reminds us what former prime minister Patrick Manning thinks of him, culminating into his firing from the then People's National Movement (PNM) government.
Ever since his ascension to the PNM leadership, Rowley's frequent "rant and rave" attitude seems to justify that "out of control" behaviour which Mr Manning lambasted him for prior to kicking him out.
Without even considering the consequences of his idiotic actions, Rowley's new approach is to attack every idea, plan or solution of the present People's Partnership government with full force, assassinating people's character along the way. But one may obviously ask, is not this the same Rowley along with his 11 PNM parliamentary members who among themselves unanimously voted for "Section 34" in Parliament?
It seems that Rowley's mission now is to craftily team-up with union leaders Ancel Roget, Vincent Cabrera and David Abdulah to engage in antagonistic tactics to destabilise all the goodwill efforts of the Government.
His recent threat not to co-operate with the Government on any bills in Parliament must be seen not only as an insult to all of us as citizens but more so as a definite attack on our democracy. How long must this Opposition Leader and his 11 MPs hold Trinidad and Tobago to ransom? Do not these PNM members really have compassion, love and care for our lovely people of this country?
Rowley has repeatedly shown disrespect to the offices of Government ministers including the Prime Minister, the Attorney General and even the Minister of National Security on national investments, the economy and concerns about the spiralling crime situation with nonsensical "hot air" frivolous statements which leaves everyone with no choice but to question whether he deserves this Opposition Leader's salary.
If Rowley and the Opposition parliamentarians continue with their frustrating, antagonising behaviour, any sitting MP should raise a "vote of no confidence" on the Opposition Leader.
Credibly now, everyone knows why Mr Manning said Rowley was "out of control" and likened his behaviour to that of a "wajang and raging bull". Rowley seems to be bent on continuing this "jammette" behaviour by putting his foot in mouth too often now.
Perhaps the same people he professes to represent must now judge from his perspective about "the peoples' rights" and see whether he has their interests at heart or that of the dwindling PNM minority.
Objectively and honestly everybody must not be hoodwinked by Rowley anymore but rather open their eyes and see he is doing an excellent job in dividing our beautiful people between racial and political borders all for dubious, selfish PNM mileage.
If Dr Rowley's behaviour continues unabated, his dream of being the country's prime minister you will never see!
