The Opposition finally sees the big picture
The decision to leave behind a myopic past and merge like minds amidst a criminal plague, is but a good one; a decision that has been long overdue. With the opposition leader and the Prime Minister now coming together to hold crime talks, a brighter tomorrow holds true. But it should not have taken blood shedding in East Port-of-Spain, to arouse a dormant opposition to finally react.
Dr Rowley has only now attempted to apply modesty and real concern for a country that has been crying for these leaders to rise above political selfishness. Why now? Nonetheless, it is better late than never. The government and the PNM must work together with mature minds toward fixing a situation affecting each and every person. Each person who must be defined as a citizen and not as an elector because it means anyone at any time can be killed, robbed, maliciously assaulted or subjected to human trafficking.
Let us hope and pray that we can finally now see a solution to crime. I think that the collaborating of these two minds would bring a unique position to the table, one that would not only offer effective solutions but effective implementation strategies.
