Getting the small things right

Editor: Getting the small things right are of importance in our continued development. The politics of our day are indeed becoming interesting, with Carlos James being now the assistant general secretary of the ULP and we hear rumours about Patel Matthews eyeing the post of vice-president of the NDP, the latter being just a rumour with no confirmation. Indeed, these developments in our politics make it interesting, for we know that they are North Leeward caretaker of the ULP and representative, respectively.

Of course, in getting the small things right, some attention must be given to the Richmond road that has broken away and is very dangerous as it stands. There is a possibility of it further breaking away should there be more trough systems and with trucks continuing to traverse the area.

The public service is another area that needs to get it right. A careful investigation would show that in some areas, many are incompetent in their position or job. The public service plays a pivotal role in the development and administration of government. Thus it is important that the right persons be placed in the correct positions. Sometimes it is the public servants that fail in their duties and make the Government look bad. Some public servants even play politics with their jobs.

In getting the small things right, some attention ought to be given to the amplified music that is played in vehicles. The Traffic Department ought to be commended for the aggressive approach in educating the public on areas that need brushing up, such as the number plates and sometimes the stops and searches to check on licences and other relevant things. However, it is annoying to hear the loudness and type of music that is played in some minivans. What is even more annoying is that they seem to choose to play this music louder when they are transporting schoolchildren. Even private vehicles sometimes have this loud music that can be heard in the homes and sometimes the place shakes when they pass, due to the loudness of the music.

Of course, there are more small things that need to be put right, but I will rest my case there.
