So sickening, and deafening, what is being offered!

September 27, 2019

Just within the past month there took place three events that for the serious concerned mind about the state of Montserrat and how the teenagers and those just leaving school might see what is in store for them in the not distant future.

The problem here is that with 50 – 70 young people graduating from the Montserrat Secondary School and others two years older from the Montserrat Community College, a few of them with high marks and several certificates, only very few of them are really ready for the world. A world that is not as simple, as they may not have given an ounce of thought for that day, when they didn’t have to wake up on Monday and get on the way to School.

The question is, however, how many of them will take a deep breath, whether they have no school to go to, or maybe a job to go to, and realise this is really the begin of a whole new school, or simply just the continuation of the never-ending school of life?

The three events, and there maybe more, depending on how serious one looks at whichever aspect of life, first that Teacher’s protest. How many people looked further than what they heard or thought about, if at all of what just took place, quite differently from what we proposed in our quiet expose.

Second, what many have taken as a culture being landed on Montserrat, like they often pass off anything untoward in behaviour to the culture brought in by those ‘non-nationals’ etc., serious complaints about the police tactics which seem quite new, but seemingly not so new after the first person went public with their experience.

The third is this most recent FlyMontserrat ‘runway management’ whether by human or mechanical incident being blamed on a wet runway. Yes, incidents do happen and when injury or worse take place, it is possible to judge the seriousness by the result. Only this was the fourth for FlyMontserrat which operates more flights than other airlines into and out of Montserrat, but those others have had no incidents worthy to reach the public, or that have been reported likewise.

The concern with that is the way the public and the air travelers have been treated. No word of apology that we’ve heard except from our government, while they seek to protect and inch closer to worse than monopolising Montserrat’s travel.

But considering there are other issues, complex or otherwise, on these with all the people who are practising for a stake at leading the next government, not a word on these issues, lost on them.

Then let’s mention a burning issue that surprisingly no one has taken up, maybe the reason it has not to do directly with the politics, (and what a big mistake that is) which everything about it is. There are several matters in our courts brought by individuals who claim wrong dismissals or suspensions, while there are reportedly some 20 plus persons out on suspension or other reasons where they are being paid for not producing work, some for years. Then sadly when some of these matters reach the courts, the public purse must face the bill.

Merely finding reasons to berate the government politicians, is definitely nothing compared with telling the people how they plan to deal with the existing challenges, past and to come, facing the little nation. Its deafening.

What continues is the curse that has plagued the little island, where there are too few who really are concerned with the national problems that face us, as against promoting their own selfish desires for power and whatever else comes with it. That is sickening.
