THE EDITOR: In a media advertisement entitled “Walk your Talk”, “Fixin T&T”, calls for a matter to be put to rest.
Curiously, this so-called NGO, prior to the General Election of 2010, saw nothing in the country that required “fixin’”, but they only wanted to be “arriving alive”, and hardly ever saw the need to cite anything remotely related to the previous government.
This organisation, led by Kirk Waithe, continues its farcical nature with its most recent release.
Clearly, Mr Waithe, either is not concerned about even appearing non-biased, or he is apparently clueless when it comes to the laws of basic natural justice. Allow me, Mr Waithe, to assist you in “fixin fixin T&T”.
It is understood the Government is the primary arm to ensure good governance, however, if any organisation is truly impartial and seeks the interest of good governance, this should also include being a watchdog for a good Opposition, yet it is passing strange that Fixing T&T seem never to have anything adverse to say about the Opposition, when many other groups and organisations show that degree of impartiality through constructive criticism at both sides if and when they see fit, so if an organisation is politically biased, they should not use the cloak of being self-proclaimed as an NGO, as it shows gross disrespect to what NGOs stand for.
The most recent and curious action by Fixing T&T is their remarkable interest in the email matter, whereas even the most fanatic Rowley supporter is very skeptical about the authenticity of the emails, as it shows that it was a “type written” document, and not a soft copy print, and one that was littered with flaws.
Yet Fixing T&T has said nothing about this matter with regards to a Member of Parliament hiding behind the corridors of Parliament to slander citizens, brandishing a document from an anonymous source, even concealing it from his own colleagues.
Fixing T&T does not see this as needing “fixing,” and now they are actually trying to play police, by making a public statement to inform those who were wrongfully accused by an anonymous sender about a bogus email, about who they should write to, and what they are expected to do.
Likewise, not a word from them with regard to the Chairman of the Integrity Commission meeting with the Opposition Leader in a covert manner, but had it been the Prime Minister or senior Government official making such an unforced error, they would have been hot and sweaty with a press release, bright and early the next day.
