Comments: Despite the promise from the Prime Minister and politicians of this government to restore the death penalty, it looks like we may have to wait months perhaps even a year or two before anyone faces the gallows here. What is somewhat confusing is that the reference made by Mr Moonilal of the PNM lack of support when the UNC wanted to restore the death penalty a few years ago. Why was it necessary to have the support of the opposition then and not now?. If the death penalty cannot be reinstated without the obvious the support of the opposition how is it now possible for the Prime Minister to assure the public that the death penalty will be restored when there are presently no signs that the UNC has agreed to support the Prime Minister's promise?. There are no assurances verbally given that the UNC will ever support this PNM move, bearing in mind what happened when the UNC tried to re-instate the death penalty. Smells a bit fishy to me. This is not I hope, just another ploy to just calm the anxiety and fears of our ordinary citizen? I won't put it past our politicians here knowing how they use tit for tat in our internal politics.
Comments: I wish to draw the attention to the Prime Minister, other politicians, and those non- supporters of the death penalty, that in America they are still executing murderers. At least three have been recently executed there. This is despite all the quibbles about the abolishing the death penalty. So there you are, you can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. I say it is about time we reinstate they death penalty here. I say hang em now. What are the politicians here waiting on?. More murders,or perhaps the approval of the Privy council?. In that case they certainly will have more killings here, but with regards the Privy Council's approval, is it unlikely to happen, and if by chance they ever give their approval, we will have to wait years for confirmation. Bearing this in mind, in my opinion the government should now embark on building new prisons to house the amount of new killers, while we wait for the Privy council' decision.
