Letter: Why the continuing fuss over section 34?

Why does the Section 34 matter strike such a chord in the media and the Opposition? It seems as though mischief is beginning to take place and knock our country’s faith in its leaders. 

Now I note that the matter was a serious one. However, it was dealt with. People walk around saying that Trinbagonians have short-term memories, but I am of the belief that we have convenient memories.

So much time has elapsed since the entire fiasco and yet staring us right in the face is this matter that died off such a long time ago.

I believe we need to stop beating the dead donkey and get a move on with life.

To top the entire thing, the recent victory of the people in the case filed by Steve Ferguson was literally blown with the wind.

It actually symbolised the good sense of the government in dealing with the unjustly publicised matter and here it is we forget it. So whenever I see the opposition forces and even the media make attempts at being objective and in our interest I get a good laugh at how ridiculous they all seem.

Destabilising the people’s trust unnecessarily in the government only makes the country itself unstable—regardless of whichever party holds the government bench.

When we make attempts at remembering, let us try hard that we remember not just a part of the truth as the entire thing, but the whole truth as the reality.

This will make us a more honest nation and one that could put differences aside and strive for the betterment of the country.

Adopting this mindset is not easy, however, and that is why the “bacchanlist” and “fassy” approach that we feel so comfortable with must be outgrown and fast. The world today moves way to quickly to accommodate laid back and sensationalist behaviour that locks people in an underdeveloped mode.
