There is a scene in Julius Caesar, a play by William Shakespeare, in which Brutus (one of the assassins of Julius Caesar) is led to believe, by indeterminate shouting, that his ally, Cassius, had suffered a major defeat and, rather than seeking to ascertain the true facts of the situation and continue preparations for battle, he chose to commit suicide. Had he been patient and wise enough to ascertain the correctness of the situation, it was very likely that the combined forces of Cassius and Brutus would have defeated the armies of Mark Anthony and Augustus.
Ever since the No Confidence Vote (NCV) of December 2018, and immediately after the March 2, 2020 Elections, the PPP/C and its surrogates, Ms. Gail Teixeira being the most recent example, have employed a mixture of bravado, insults and threats to goad and demand that the Granger-led Coalition concede defeat and engage in self-destruction. This unsophisticated and desperate strategy has not worked, and will never work, as President Granger has consistently and patiently sought to acquaint himself with the correctness and requirements of the overall situation. The PPP/C, in my view, never concedes defeat preferring to claim that it was cheated and to engage in treachery, deceit, fraud and public disorder to achieve its objectives.
There is no obvious and compelling need for anyone to concede defeat at this stage. The National Recount of ballots will soon be complete and a victor will be declared. GECOM must be allowed to complete its work without hindrance and threat from anyone and the State must ensure public order.
