The 5th Season

It is the Silly Season once again and I can’t help but reminisce how mush sillier we Anguillians become around this time. Though not late summer, this season is characterized by exaggerated news stories about frivolous matters for want of real news; real issues… they called it politics… we called it bullshit. And in the Anguilla context, we are in a constant state of… whatever you call it.

It’s the season where you, the disenfranchised electorate’s intelligence, are repeatedly belittled, trust prostituted and/or postulated, brainwashing exaggerations, innuendoes and frivolous discourse saturate the atmosphere; where political discrimination become the norm.

Frankly speaking, the electorate is weary of the relentlessly tainting and hoodwinking of our political atmosphere with purposelessness and echoing deafening waves backed by tribal patronage.

Let us not bush our chances for a brighter future through false choices, tribalism, omissions, false hopes and a dreamworks visionless opposition.

Let us not allow gluttony, disrespect and deceitfulness ‘glaucomaed’ our vision to global ills.

In the midst of this Silly Season… THINK!
