Hello hello! Did you hear of an elections date finally coming this week? It is widely being circulated now, that having completely boxed themselves in a corner, there is no other logical alternatives but to call it anytime now before the 12th February. Notwithstanding, Parliament will automatically dissolve and the 90 days grace offered in effect. Come what may, facts remains the same, and history shall not forget this suicidal derision. In reflection, what really went wrong here? Was there not enough time to deliver all that was promised? Certainly does not read well. Especially when being accused of sleeping on the job.
Should the Bajan public now be jumping for joy? But of course, and give thanks too….a constitutional right is being ‘granted‘. In the reminiscence of a man who could raise the dead, alert thinking people, could not have forgotten the reprographic days of giants of hibernation and loss documents falling off trucks, even stolen. Now again we can look forward to old wine in new goat skins…. a repose collection of 100 day promises coming from a manifesto, bearing fresco examples of more breeches than promises.
Have they ever heard of the book Anything for Dummies? Surely by now somebody has obtained copyrights and\ or printed one. What any sensible thinking person should be doing (before swallowing fodder) given certain records of performance and promises of the past are yet fresh, is to tarry a while as to see what is in this new document worthy of remit.
Silly season or not, some should make more use of the gray-ey brain matter even if recovering from the long low air pocket swirl when giants were in battle (Ephesus) and Boeing Barbados was on auto pilot to nowhere. To hear cry of this lofty pronouncement must surely be good news. After all, ‘gifting’ a constitutional right to the people is but a good chance to rebuild creditability for fear there was none. Besides, of what was there to boast… a $250,000 sign and walk over? An elections outside the 90 days is surely worthy… . Give thanks people. Give thanks and more.
