Is it that our society is on a slow drift to lawlessness and confusion and no one cares except for a few writers here and there? Is no one strong enough to stop this unhappy movement?
Attending the City Council meeting last Monday was yet another educational opportunity for me, if not a tragedy.
The Mayor revealed how, as never happened before, a minister who is not even the municipal subject minister is in regular consort with the town clerk, giving orders without the Mayor and Councillors’ knowledge.
The Mayor reminded us that it was strange that the building that collapsed at the corner of Hadfield and Smyth Streets (luckily no one was injured) was the direct responsibility of the Town Clerk and the Minister of Works, Robeson Benn, since this building is owned by the state.
In their regular walkabouts they did not notice this threat to life, a few yards away from City Hall.
Next, we need to remind the Town Clerk that a law which was passed earlier and apparently enforced by this regime – the Public Corporation Act – clearly prohibits officers such as the Town Clerk from dealing directly with the media.
Yet this fine lady calls press conferences and pontificates on matters; this is illegal. What is the Minister and the Council doing about this gross violation of our laws and customs?
Is this lady a special breed who can be rude to a well respected internationally known political personality and get away with it?
Where is she getting her ‘spounce’ from? Or it convenient for the State to use her as their pit bull or good old house slave, a position to which she obviously resorted? By the way, there is a call to rid us of pit bulls.
