MF Rahman's final words ...Rowley's grand scheme

MF Rahman's final letter:

Rowley’s plan to stage a march to President’s House deserves contemptuous disregard, certainly not the response recommended below.

Not all the foaming at the mouth can mask the egg on Rowley’s face following the Opposition’s contrived outrage at Clause 34 – a done deal for which the PPG can claim congratulations for repealing promptly.

Rowley’s grand scheme is grander posturing as he must know that the President is powerless as a titular head. One recalls Dr. Cudjoe’s earlier march complete with petition to the President accomplishing nothing. But Cudjoe marched without failing to draw support since he had asked for none. Rowley has set himself up for spectacular failure even before his meaningless petition is delivered.

Williams marched historically on Chaguaramas with telling effect. Panday marched on Port of Spain with a repaired heart. Cudjoe’s squib fizzed out.
Manning marched away from the Parliament towards his constituency where he is now confined.

Now Rowley proposes to march to deliver a meaningless petition to an impotent office that cannot help him even though its incumbent was a PNM appointee.

It is said: “One fool makes many”. We shall see how many will join Rowley in his folly.
