Slipping on banana skins

Published:

Trade unions demand respect, or else. Or else they make us all look like fools in the eyes of the world. Social media sits on every shoulder and reprehensible behaviour instantly goes viral. We the people need to demand respect for our intelligence when only two immigration officers report for work and visitors and locals suffer.

Image is everything and our image right now screams “Banana Republic.” And then we are told “it was not me, and I do not know.” We are slipping around on the banana skins that some people proudly wear in exchange for sensible clothing.

The collective image and veracity of the TT trade unions must be at the lowest for 2017. The impression being given is that the collective trade unions are insisting on micro managing every facet of governance.

I am unhappy with the idea that the trade unions allegedly expect citizens must believe that theirs is the superior view. I voted for a political party not the trade union movement. Government employees are paid by our tax dollars.

When demands are made do we now have to ask: How much do you want, my children?

Perhaps I need to put it more simply for all to understand. No tail is supposed to wag no dog.
