Unfortunately the politicians in small island benefits when they encourage the political and other divide, put enmity between the people by stirring up the fears, anger and other emotions of the masses; thus ensuring their party maintains a strong hold on the governance of the country, and for the selected few or the other party, it means ensures that they keep their elected seat in the house of parliament. We all know it is an unhealthy social condition to continually encourage a venomous divide among the people; but to do such to achieve a personal or a political goal is not good for any one. It is a dirty shame that politicians are not big enough to put their country before their party, their personal and their political ambitions. When one speak about selfish men you speak about small Island politicians, I hole the size of their state in no way impacts on the size of their brain or mind.
Small island politicians have adopted the techniques of the old slave specialist; Willie Lynch. Willie Lynch taught slaves owners: if they can keep the slaves divided then they will keep their slaves. Small island politician practice the same concept, which is; if you can keep the people divided you will keep your job.
I have seen a new day dawning in these small islands, a day that will left the politician behind. A day when the citizenry becomes so informed that they unite for the common good of their country. party card and loyalty, scare and other tactics will not work in swaying to vote for any politician or his party; there is dawning a day when politicians will have to come up with sound plans and programs and a character to match before the people will even consider them. When the people will demand that the parliamentarians enact and enforced sound integrity legislation, when one will have to be able to pass the acid test to be a politician; when this new era is ushered in what are you guys going to do.
