The Blame Game‏

In Primary school a famous saying by my teacher was "Common sense is not so common". After viewing the general elections and its results, this quote rings true for the following reasons:

* The persons who voted either for the UNC-A or the COP did so because they did not support the PNM why then would they split their votes so that the said PNM would win?

*The UNC-A has been touted by all as having a track record of performance. If the business of elections is to put in a government that can perform, then why not the UNC-A? In America, former President Bill Clinton was re-elected for a second term, in spite of the fiasco with Monica Lewinsky, because he ran the country well. Is that not the more important issue?

*In law we always heard "innocent until proven guilty" yet this seems to work for everyone except Basdoe Panday. How can a man who the PNM has been after for over five years and could find nothing else on him other than he did not disclose a bank account and who even Mr. Anand Ramlogan says is "virtually incorrutpible" be the reason for not having an accomadation?

* That any party regardless of how many votes they receive will be of little value unless they get a seat in parliament. Could the COP then not have made a deal with the UNC-A that even if the only thing they do upon winning the election was to change the constitution to allow for proportional representation; so that in the case of a split we would not have this result of a minority government, rather than taking a stance of no compromise?

* That if Mr Dookeran, rather than being rock-headed in his refusal to dialogue with the UNC-A leadership had chosen instead to at least met once with the leadership council could not be accused of being egotistical and selfish.

*That accomadation with a party is not the same as integration with that party, and that if the COP had joined the leadership council of the UNC-A and not been in favour with certain decisions of the council, could have taken up stakes and left, which may have even given them greater leverage in the campaign.

*That had the COP put aside their hate for Basdeo Panday and rather focus on the issues of crime, food prices, flooding, education, health care, infrastructure, water, job security, pension, etc. that today, we would not have a post election crime situation of almost a murder a day with the rape of a woman and her daughter on Divali night and the slaughter of a woman by a gilted over in additio to the stealing of a newborn infant at one of the nation's health institutons.

*And finally, that common sense comes before book sense and all those who believed that because they were "intellectuals" could forget the basic principle that "divided we fall" will have to face the crime, flooding, food prices, poor health system, etc. just like the rest of us backward coolies.

* The persons who voted for COP did so because they did not support the PNM AND fawkin DuncE-A

* Panday will always be known as the first prime minister to make jail

*1 month after and allyuh still blaming COP. the 148000 comprises of former unc supporters , former pnm supporters AND the ones like myself who will never support unc/pnm

* "divided we fall" tribal politics

*instead of blaming winston dookeran for not joining with unc ,and crime, flooding, food prices, poor health system, etc you all should blame the one man whose fault it is pnm got in power 6 years ago (RLM AKA TWIST MOUTH)

To the fuckin anonycunt above: Judging from your IP location, I'd say you are the typical COP cunt. A wannabee.

Panday will NOT be the first, last or only leader to go to jail yuh cunt.

For the next 5 years we will be blaming COP so get over it - idiot.

RLM is feared by all those fucking crooked COP vagrants - like yourself.

Don't study Panday - think about the people YOU are swindling - pretending yuh care - fuccking neemakaram!
