Anil, ‘indiscipline’ everywhere it seems

Friday, January 14, 2011

Minister Anil Roberts, who still has to be “disciplined” by the Privileges Committee of Parliament, not for accidentally crashing a government-owned vehicle, has cited indiscipline among members of the executive of the COP, who are not members of Government, as the reason for his challenge to the political leader of the COP. His contention is that the utterances of these executive members have embarrassed the PP Government.

I am sure the minister is aware that political leadership carries the responsibility to aspire to be Prime Minister. I am therefore surprised that he has not challenged the Prime Minister, for the “indisci-pline” and embarrassment shown on two occasions by a government senator, who in protest marched the streets of Port-of-Spain with union and PNM supporters. Ironically, the “indisciplined” senator, who should be fired for his actions, now chairs a committee of chairmen, among whom are those who are alleged to be indisciplined. Steups!
