WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT THE YOUTH
Of late we all have heard the political anthem! YOUTH THIS! YOUTH THAT! YOUTH ECONOMY!
It really bemuses me how a Political Leader vociferously speaks on Youth issues as a campaign strategy. However, when the time came for him to be their voice, he switched on the mute button. How convenient!!!
The silence was deafening. His larynx was severed by the sharp surgical instrument of political correctness. “Why must I trouble the calm waters?” “Why must I ask the burning questions?’ “Why must I put my neck in the hangman’s noose?”
Alas!!! In times of great difficulty the true nature and quality of a LEADER would be exposed. Surely!!! It was exposed! The incident at the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School warranted some sharp and frank castigation. “Are ALL these POLITICIANS be it red or yellow in BED with each other?’
Oh what a bed filled with bed bugs!
Haha!!! Haha!! Mi Roro!! Let’s laugh together!
The Political Leader would not have dared to bat an eyelash in rocking the red and yellow boat, while our young people were adrift in the Rona Sea.
Mr Political Leader! Did you not care about the welfare of these same young people you use as a campaign strategy? Did you not care as to their mental state? Did you not care as to how the fiasco was handled? Did you have any recommendations?
Is that how “YOU ARE PUTTING THE YOUNG PEOPLE FIRST”
Political Leader this is an EMPTY SLOGAN!!! One devoid of any TRUTH.
Allow me to elucidate you as to what you placed first. Your aspirations on becoming the next Prime Minister of St.Lucia. Certainly NOT the young people. You remained silent when your voice was needed in the wilderness. You should have been David the shepherd boy rescuing our young people from Goliath!!
You were afraid to speak for fear of being eaten alive by the political actors! Aren’t you ALL Political Actors?
If it was all about the YOUTH as you claimed, you would have BELLOWED! The earth would have felt your wrath, however, you cowered under pressure.
I scrolled through your social media pages looking for that glimmer of hope where you would have written an inspiring piece uplifting the students. NADA!
It is all about politics and not the youth!!! The stench of POWER hypnotizes you that you forgot the students!
Oh What a Shame!!! Leadership gone with the WIND!!
Is that how you would lead our country Political Leader???
