For by thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned – Mathews 12: 37
Here we go again, the furrowing of quotations from the Good Book to suit ends.
We no longer being perplexed by a Beast of Ephesus (fought), or monsters of Beelzebub, nowadays the demon takes on persona of goats’ skins and sheep skins. Mr. McDowall et al beware. Some prefer old wine “in bed” to youthful drams of inviolable wines. This lull currently being experienced is but a calm before a storm. Rest assured plans still remain to slaughter deemed ‘old sheep’ as we speak.
From way back PM Stuart has taken a liking to parable twisters. Every since giving parlous advise to teachers of Alexandra (time you catch-up), PM Stuart seems to have red in his eyes and fire in his tone. Ever since the Opposition Leader signalled that she won’t be leading HM Opposition back into Parliament until stipulated amends, Stuart being seeing red. Nowadays bozie, it is of new wine and old skins… Grapes of Wrath …brackish wine.
Those UWI students for instance, who were looking forward to their promised bursaries from MOE Jones. After PM Stuart’s echoing at the party’s George St. Headquarters, that Bajans have 125,000 spanking new motor car and many colossal houses of concrete … and that they should be able to find monies for their children’s tertiary education,…in-need students have good reason to worry.
Pray tell Mr. PM, how many of these ‘so called rich’ Bajans families’ children are being denied a university education, or for that matter, are applying for these $1,000 bursaries? Seems like we gone back to the days that GHA and EWB fought so hard to put behind us.- Future doctors and lawyers coming from families of means.
‘Needy’ new wine can no longer cleave to the ‘old skins’ for subsistence. Your parents will either pay your way or you falter behind and be further disenfranchised. Bitter wine to swallow indeed.
