Lack of Judgment in a Crisis Situation

The challenges that we face as a nation is proving that the political party in Government have once again exceeded their capabilities. It would take a bit of political will along with common sense to face and confront the problem from another perspective and give answers to the situation that bring greater encouragement to the citizens. However, that does not seem easily attainable or understandable for a weak leadership, locked in a capricious position before the critic.

The challenges that we face as a nation is proving that the political party in Government have once again exceeded their capabilities. It would take a bit of political will along with common sense to face and confront the problem from another perspective and give answers to the situation that bring greater encouragement to the citizens. However, that does not seem easily attainable or understandable for a weak leadership, locked in a capricious position before the critic.

The lack of common sense exhibited by the Government, its advisors and other organs of power, in view of the measures suggested by the most elementary logic, causes great alarm among the observers especially when the country is relapsing into an economic tailspin with no viable solution. It would be enough to make the necessary changes to reduce the rejection of this administration which is almost zero with political equilibrium and whose destiny ventures into uncertainty. Within this complex situation there is also a painful contribution from those representatives government like Edmund Castro, Anthony Boots Martinez, Wilfred Sedi Elrington among the many more on majority side of the House who because of intellectual sobriety, have no vision for any solution. That compounded with the fact that the once recognized Minister of everything, Prime Minister Barrow, have vanished and is now just a shadowy dust of all the crafty misjudgements he have made as Minister of Finance over the last decade.

The country is in chaos because Prime Minister Dean Barrow has been missing in action, in and out of a country that needs his full attention, simply because he lacks the capacity to govern on the grounds of his weaknesses which includes the medical aspect.  

Meanwhile here at home we can feel the incompetence and see the failures when we have to accept the presence or gibberish responses of UDP representatives he left in charge especially when they are attempting to respond to the media on any of the overwhelming national issues where they seem to lack the most basic and elemental that contributes to a viable solution. All this just add to the UDP’s traditional bad images that relates to numerous scandals and corruption among all other inexplicable blunders since 2008. The reaction by this government’s interpretation could only lead to greater rejection.

As we come closer to July 1st we could only observe the new attempt by this government without an ‘Election and Boundaries Commission’ to manipulate the upcoming campaign of voters re-registration. This is only one of many strategies to benefit this out-of-date UDP leadership that is in government, even while the country remains swimming in misery and falling in the cracks of poverty brought upon by this government.

Anyone would believe that at a time after so many corrupt scandals the government would try to put a damper stop all the wicked corrupt practices and the conflict of interest in the preferment of government projects but that initiative which is the most basic ethics obliges them, they still continue and refuse to step aside from the corrupt creaming, racketeering and kickbacks in project that concerns the government.
