Martin Daly, the well-to-do self-styled crusader for morality in public places, is upset that ketch-hell media people have been able to buy public housing.Daly devoted an entire Sunday column to grouse about working class journalists securing a shelter over their heads. There are a number of worthy and raging national issues to which Daly could turn his moralising attention.
Here are 10:
- The dreadful decision of Attorney General Faris Al Rawi to withdraw a legal suit against Malcolm Jones in the $2 billion World Gas-To-Liquids (WGTL) scandal;
- The threat to citizens’ fundamental rights in the onerous amendments to the Strategic Services Agency (SSA) Bill;
- The uprising of the labour movement against the Rowley Government;
- Trinidad and Tobago becoming one of the most homicidal places on earth, despite PNM manifesto promises;
- The steep sudden rise in the cost of living;
- The historic low level of police detection in serious crimes;
- The silence of certain senior attorneys on irregularities of the Rowley regime, in fearing of not getting lucrative legal briefs;
- The planned appointment of an attorney working in the law chambers of a close relative of Prime Minister Rowley to an independent national institution;
- PM Rowley’s attack on the Integrity Commission and other independent bodies;
- The growing arrogance of PM Rowley and Finance Minister Colm Imbert.
