I dare anyone to deny that Trinidad and Tobago is not a Mickey Mouse, bacchanal and carnival country. During the past week, I had extreme difficulty in deciding on which episode to voice my opinion. In the end I decided to add my “two cents” to the current debate between the Prime Minister and the wannabe Prime Minister.
If the truth be told, right thinking citizens are anxiously awaiting the hour when the Ole Mas will end and the conversation to be lifted out of the gutter, allowing the real issues which affect the lives of ordinary citizens to become the focal point and not the ‘cyat’ of which Dr. Rowley spoke. I am unable to understand why as an aspiring Prime Minister, he felt that it was necessary to use the now famous or infamous cyat to make his point? Is it that he is an animal rights activist par- excellence or is it a case where he simply has an affinity to kyats?
