Several pardners of mine had some really memorable things to say this week.

‘Annoyed’ PM must do something about it
I read that the Prime Minister was annoyed and that he has said that civil servants should not hold the country to ransom. He seems to have forgotten that the country is being held to ransom by criminals who are forcing citizens to live in fear of their lives and who in the long run, will have to be confined to their homes after working hours.
The recent upheaval by the Immigration Officers merely affected a “few” of our citizens whilst the perpetual action of criminals affect almost the whole of our population all the time. The PM and his colleagues in the corridors of power have so far failed and have done nothing to stem the high rate of daily murders, serious crimes and galloping general lawlessness, especially here in Trinidad.
Without showing the killers and other criminally-minded persons just who is in charge of this country and by allowing them to rule the roost, he can expect even his loyal contingency of civil servants and supporters to tend to lean towards the side of lawlessness.
Despite his annoyance, there is little he can now do to stop the widespread indulgence of unacceptable behaviour from those once loyal PNM supporters and law abiding citizens. He has to take the bull by the horns and introduce drastic measures if he wants his party to survive under the increasing pressures of the resentment, growing uncontrollable defiance and bad behaviour from his supporters, especially in government departments.
He is rapidly losing control of the proper governance of this nation and I won’t be at all surprised if the call for another general election is not imminent.
