Why instil fear in us?

It is not uncommon for political opponents “to pelt mud” at each other hoping that some will stick. What I heard from our PM at the Partnership’s rally on Saturday was not mud but effluent of the grossest kind. It’s obvious campaigning for the 2015 general elections has begun and the Partnership’s strategy is not only to demonise the leader of the PNM but to seek to instil fear in the population.

I listened in horror to our PM likening Dr Keith Rowley to Mugabe, Stalin and, of all horror, Hitler.

What is wrong with us in T&T that we do not recognise there are some lines that we do not cross, especially our leaders.
