So, Volney do it?

He alone do it?

Why he do it?

Did he tink nobody would ah notice it get done, if he alone do it, dat is?

He was de one drinking champagne in Tobago?

Ah putting aside mih suspicions of him dat I had since de time he was ah High Court judge one day and de next day he resign and running fuh political office. Dat move alone, from one of de supposedly independent branches of government tuh de next, tainted de independence of all three fuh me. Ah pushing dem suspicions aside.

Ah next set of suspicions ah pushing aside. He came out and suggested loudly dat Atiba Duncan, de fella shot dead by police in Champs Fleurs was ah homicide victim. He say more buh dat dey was de juicy part. When he get pong fuh dat he put orn he judicial hat and he say ‘homicide’ eh mean murder so he wasn’t saying de police murder anybody. While ah know what he saying he was inflaming passions fires den seeking tuh back away.

I wasn’t following he when he was ah High Court judge so I eh have no personal knowledge of the one ting so many people raise dey eyebrow about. De Brad Boyce case. All I know is what I just read. One man kill ah next man at ah club, geh charged wid murder, it geh reduced tuh manslaughter. Justice Volney questioned de pathologist credentials and tell de jury tuh find de accused not guilty.  Dat all add tuh he ‘colorfulness’ although I would tink de people wid raised eyebrow have udder words tuh describe Volney. Tuh dem wid everything he do after dat dey was yelling, ‘See?’ ‘See!’

I cyar yell. Instead ah wondering what de hell de Ministry of Justice doing since Kamla kill Mannin’ and appoint he de minister. Wid all dem suspicions ah looking elsewhere fuh ah pen pal. Still, ah asking again.

Volney do it?

He alone do it?

Why he do it?

Did he tink nobody would ah notice it get done, if he alone do it, dat is?

He was de one drinking champagne in Tobago?

I read plenty of de blogs in Triniland newspapers since Section 34. Hear nah,  Trinis does write plenty shit is one ting dat does keep getting confirmed. have some interesting tings tuh say. Ah see as many opinions on dis as it had bloggers.

Ah have ah theory when it comes tuh tings dat happen and people commenting.  When people opinions doh show no consensus, I tink de truth is usually de least controversial of all de opinions. Sometimes smoke is just smoke and not ah screen. Normally is de people who involved in de ting dat causing all de ruckus who does put out dat ‘truth’ dat doh geh believed. All dem udder theories tuh me does tell more about how we does think. We does believe whatever fit in wid de beliefs we already have even if it mean concocting outrageous scenarios tuh make tings fit. So who story simple and who concocting what? Dat is why ah asking:

Volney do it?

He alone do it?

Why he do it?

Did he tink nobody would ah notice it get done, if he alone do it, dat is?

He was de one drinking champagne in Tobago?

Once I did calm dong from mih Trini reaction when ah hear Kamla make she announcement and fire Volney, ah decide tuh look at it as objectively as ah could. Look at de bigger picture dis all fighting into. See what de forest telling mih about de trees I guess.

Sometimes we does give people too much credit. Moreso if dem people part of ah group and dey blind, lame and naïve and tink everybody else blinder, lamer and more naïve. Who is dem dat blind lame and naïve? Politicians nah. Who supposed tuh be blinder, lamer and more naïve? Not we, dey borses?

Yes, I admit de opposite could be true and all ah dem insightful, caring and loving and want tuh give back. Not all ah dem. De kind of dotishness dat does parse fuh good governance have me believing what Kamla say when she drop kick Volney out de ministerial door.

Would the insightful, caring and loving take de boat dat does make de Tobago run wid foodstuff and building material and oxygen fuh dem in Tobago tuh live, put it orn dry dock and doh even bodder tuh have ah next boat ready tuh take up de slack? Okay, eef yuh is ah conspiracy peong de answer probably is ‘yes’ as yuh tink dey pocket de money dat was tuh pay fuh de interim boat, ent? Buh still, de man in charge, if he do dat didn’t tink he would get cyatch?

Let mih try dis one den. De school year just start. I listen tuh de infamous ‘ethnic cleansing’ saying politician, an opposition member at de time, buh now de esteemed Minister of Education. I listen tuh he de udder day paint dis picture of de school system dat had mih delighted dat all was finally well. He had mih when he tork about all de school repairs dey do tuh de hundreds of school and ting. Ah saying, ‘Yes! Ah ministry wukking hard and getting great results’.

Den de parents of ah primary school near and dear tuh mih heart, stage ah protest. Is 60 plus lil chirren tuh one teacher in de school oui! De parents complain dat de ministry take out like 5 teachers and eh replace dem. So, could, not even ‘would’, could de insightful, caring and loving fool people like I geh fool? I eh see how de answer could be ‘yes’ as de man in charge eh tink parents wouldn’t realize is ah week into de school term and de teacher eh reach dey chirren name yet in roll call so many in de class?

Look no further than mih boy Jack W. Why he does make it into everything so? Everyting I say ah meaning eh. If yuh tort I was meaning simply ‘everything’, den dat is on you as me eh saying dat. Buh now he get bring up, he had rolling wid something he say. He was commenting on de PNM march up tuh by way Max does live. He say when dem marchers was going up de road tuh de president’s house, dey should ah take ah left and go by ah next house, de mad house. Whatever I tink of Warner as ah minister, ah willing to give Jack he jacket. De man does say some hilarious shit oui. Shoot. Ah digressing again so back tuh de topic.

It have more examples dat show it eh insightful, caring and loving leaders at work. Not enough times anyway. Tuh keep running through any list is like beating ah dead horse. De eye have tuh remain on de future after learning from de past.  Buh all dem tings not mentioned is what lead me tuh de opinion dat 25 plus Trini politicians from de same party could not conspire tuh fool de people of Trinidad and Tobago wid no Section 34 sleight of hand. Geezanages, dey cyar even parse ah viable dorg bill tuh protect people!!

So since collectively all ah dem not, ‘Section 34 capable’, den it eh had tuh have happened after de bill get parsed?

Former High Court Judge Herbert Volney do it?

He alone do it?

Why he do it?

Did he tink nobody would ah notice it get done, if he alone do it, dat is?

He was de one drinking champagne in Tobago?

It never ends. It never even slows dong.
