NIGHT OF THE NINJA By Ken Howell

The Prime Minister demonstrated, on Monday 2 February 2015 that she is good as any and even better than many, when it comes to using a three canal cutlass to remove the heads of those, who by their actions or lack thereof, have brought, or perceived to have brought, her government into disrepute.

She demonstrated that neither Ramesh Maharaj nor ISIS can  lay claim to the art of beheading, because, she was in that business before ISIS came on the scene, and no one can contest the fact that she caused more bodies to fall than Ramesh did in his hanging days.

Her expertise in that field, qualifies her to become an advisor to the military of countries where such skills are required to train Navy Seals, the British SAS, the Israeli Mossad, as well as the Russian and Chinese Security and Intelligence forces. These countries should not allow such skills to go to waste.

Ninja Assassins and Japanese Samurai Swordsmen, I am certain, will be lining up to acquire such skills.

The down side to all of this bloodletting, however, is that it is doubtful whether the cleaning crew will be able to remove the blood stains from the creases and crevasses of the Diplomatic Centre in time for the elections whenever it is called, or whether the Prime Minister is able to win the support of a sufficiently large portion of the population to the side of her government based on the action that she has taken in this matter.

There is no doubt that that the Attorney General should be asked to resign. The question as to whether other Ministers should perish with him is debatable. In some cultures, when a King dies other individuals volunteer to die with him. In this instance, it would appear that some individuals have become collateral damage.

But this is not something new to T&T, where we have become accustomed to drive by shootings which result in the loss of life of innocent persons who were deemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

What is very interesting in all of these scenarios, is that on the one hand the Police is claiming that crime has gone down, while, on the other, at the highest levels of the state allegations of criminal activity are being made against a central figure in the PP government. How then can we persuade the young men who have been misguided into a life of crime to turn away?

What are the lessons, young people at school are to learn, from the action of the current government?

Should they follow the example of the Speaker of the House of Representative who apparently, believes that an apology to the Parliament is sufficient for the “blunder” he made when he misled the house over the High Court/Howai letter affair?

How should a Prime Minister act in such circumstances? Well, faced with the rising call for blood it would appear that the Prime Minister decided to put on a show which, I suspect, the Mexican Cartel could not rival. All that is required now is to place an advertisement in the newspaper that we have acquired the long-hidden manuscripts of the Japanese Ninjas, and we dismantled its components as we would a Japanese made car, and modified its designs and that we are now the masters of the art.
