What really is the meaning of ‘politician’?

August 9, 2019

It has been and it continues to be such a sobering experience to listen to most of the politicians who believe that they hold the answers to Montserrat’s misfortunes and wilfull mistakes, in the past 30 years.

And those thirty years can easily stretch back to nearly years when a serious and knowledgeable account is taken of the folly and the poisonous curse that has saturated itself in much of what Montserrat could expect to be the progress it deserves.

Over the last few years at least when there is any mention of Montserrat’s economic status and it reflects that, no sooner than there is mention of a decline in the growth rate, or improvement for that matter, anyone listening might hear the rumblings and mutterings, it is not correct, what is wrong and how bad the economy is.

It is not difficult to put blame as to why those statements go unchallenged and denounced as mere politics which in our estimation is more of the dunceness and the mediocrity that continue to prevail.

Recently and times over we might hear sounds similar to that which the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) published recently when it said, that Montserrat was amongst the fastest growing economies (Monserrat (5.2 per cent)).

We find the sincerity for selfishness and lacking of a desire for truth which stifle any opportunity for the upliftment that stimulate their minds. Instead of attempting to properly analyse the state of matters and circumstances what you hear leaves us with the thought we have not seen the last state.

That report from the Auditor General, may have been well done in accordance to what ‘international’ standards it maintained could have been quite damning. AS it is we would like the audit in light of its published findings and recommendation, it would be useful to quantify the losses and the damage that single act cost Montserrat.

Since the PDM government came into power there has never been or we have not seen anywhere an analysis of how they came into power and what should have been expected. We had cautioned that if they did not take certain actions they may be considered accomplices.

Most disturbing among some of our so called politicians and those who have been pontificating as politicians, is that far too many of them believe they are fit and ready to be leaders of Montserrat. And in case anyone believes there is any talk here about requirements as to education, we get to the point and draw attention to one word, apprenticeship.

That is a big word. What credentials do they really bring? Ah! that again seems to be a ‘bad word’, but then the question is now said there is no such thing as ‘bad wud’ any more. Qualification seems to have no meaning anymore. Not required and its meaning so badly misinterpreted, all round.

How many of them look around and see or hear how many years the majority if not all of the leaders around have behind them. Of course, has anyone noted that word experience in job offers? In 2014 there was one new candidate who actually showed that he was studying politics. That you realise we would say is commendable.

Looking at one dictionary meaning of politician it says in just a few words. “One who deceives or outmaneuvers others for personal gain.” Any wonder that many people are saying they are not voting this next election! But then could it be that is what we have been saying for some time. Add dunce to that, what do we/I’get? Is that the reason a religious leader is not allowed to contest elections in some places?

Maybe you heard this before, about the lack of meaningful political alliances, political parties or political continuity to plan the ‘now and when’ for Montserrat.

That is such a big problem. Shoot down, offer no solution. “When I get there, we will put the right things in place.” Ask them for who, what, when? where?

Please stand by as we break down what seems to be a bit confusing, may be too much right now.
