The Anil Conundrum....
Again to bring this back on point, one would be hard pressed to envision Anil making such a stupid move, and while he may yet be ejected from the Congress of the People for daring to step on what are appearing to be little egos at the top, the long vision seems to portend that even if he loses this battle he may yet win the war. Members who are tired of the bait and switch politics that has been practiced at their expense since May 24th 2010 may find that their fortunes would bring better results if invested with people who possess the ability to stand by what they say. Fumbling into a stand off with the Prime Minister on moral and ethical grounds after letting all manner of abuses slip by unchallenged fooled no one, and while the media may be giving some face-time to those engaged in these marathon talks to nowhere, the nation is already clear as to the lose/lose position the current leadership of the COP has carved for itself. I would like to suggest to all those who are making suggestions as to where Anil's political future might lie that they turn their attention to their own business instead and contemplate where the future of the COP lies should Prakash and Co. follow through. Breaking up with the UNC will open them up to attacks on a level and with a fury and finality that they may never have contemplated as their former allies turned enemy seek to destroy any future competition for their stomping ground. The UNC is not a little party by any stretch of the imagination and the COP as it exists today is nowhere near ready to go toe to toe; make no mistake, drawing first blood in this skirmish is not going to be where the bragging rights lie, it remains with those who are left standing after all is said and done. If the COP finds itself once again wandering in the political wilderness in search of a Moses to lead them to the Promised Land, enter into that scenario the personality of an Anil Roberts and tell me again who has the longer play left to play.
