EXPECTATIONS are known to bring about the best and the worst in human beings and — unfortunately — this phenomenon will forever exist. On the other hand, finding an amicable solution would undoubtedly be the best way forward.
There are individuals who remain committed to certain political parties, be it what it may, which is understandable, while others support their party while in opposition for personal reasons and therein lies the misunderstanding which angers those individuals to a point of hatred.
This scenario is experienced on both sides of the political divide and when these incidents occur, the various parties simply have to deal with the fallout. Generally, the animosity is derived from people not being appropriately recognized in one form or fashion but usually financial compensation tops the list.
Administrations assuming the role of government must remain prudent when disbursing the revenue of the State and the idea that individuals who have supported the party in opposition must automatically receive a cushy appointment at a fictitious monetary level should not be a definitive expectation regardless of the state of the nation’s finances. Individuals who support political parties should do so based upon the philosophy of the party and that political party deserves a timeframe in office to make good on that philosophy.
In the case of Jeff Fedee, who was an ardent supporter of the current PM, he has demonstrated his misgivings within 17 months of the current administration’s term in office but has not taken the time to reflect on the burning issues he highlighted upon for 4 years on a weekly basis. Jeff has a great command of the English language but if one dissects the facts of his concerns he shall conclude that there is not much merit in his concerns as the time factor for creating the change required did not exist.
More importantly, has Jeff taken the time to sit down with any minister or permanent secretary within his field and make a meaningful contribution of what he could do to help the nation rise to a new level within his sphere of knowledge? This article will most likely not alter his concerns but maybe the article will trigger another side of his expectations, thereby encouraging him to think that moving from one political philosophy to another is not the best way forward. This article is written to excite the minds of other individuals who tend to make statements at random and write articles in their moment of discontentment.
