In a country where everything and everyone seems to have a price, we appear to be delving deeper and deeper into a dark place desperately searching for light.
Nothing that was campaigned against was real, nothing.
Not one charge has been laid despite millions of dollars being paid to lawyer friends and drinking buddies.
The Government that promised change has failed to live up to that promise, and are instead hard at work doing everything they said they were against prior to being elected, and doing it with a vengeance.
The blimp was bad but now it's good, the helicopters were a waste but now they're not, the highways wont work but now they will, abuse of Office is old politics but apparently so is new politics, nepotism was the old way, so how come the new way is looking the same?
The appointment and subsequent removal of an inexperienced thirty one year old friend of a Party hack/former journalist to run the Intelligence arm of our National Security has left a bitter taste in everyone's mouth and has had the effect of completely upsetting the population with this Administration.
In place of Tixiera's take it or leave it Property tax we have Ramlogan's piano; for Gary Hunt's flag we have Anil's concert series, and in place of Martin Joseph's failure we have John Sandy's.
The Government's tired and overworked spin doctors, having demonized the PNM, deified Kamla and neutered the press through the use of State advertising and corrupting hiring policies STILL find themselves reeling from an over informed and very involved population.
Their bag of tricks must be nearly empty and it is only eight months in, what will they do when someone other that Jack finally drops the 'N' word in Parliament or Anil lives up to the promise of Anil?
Will we rise?
The yeast of common purpose, nationhood and unity was squandered early along with all the given goodwill, and the lack of substance or anything like leadership emanating from the Red House since May 24th is causing formerly managed social cracks to widen in an onslaught of criminal enterprise.
Despite their protestations to the contrary and their many campaign events, it is plain to see that this Government will collapse at some point before their term in Office is up; the only remaining questions being time and what will be left to Govern after they're gone.
The light at the end of the tunnel that many mistook to be salvation is turning out to be disaster and an oncoming train.
