Demand party views, Kamla

THE EDITOR: Much is being made of the ruling of the High Court on matters relating to buggery.

In fact the very small LGBT group seems to be getting an inordinate amount of publicity, which seems to indicate it has influential people in high places.

My major concern however is the stance taken by Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

The former prime minister, who should have an interest in these rulings, has chosen to offer no guidance to the population as to how the members of her party’s executive feel.

In fact, it is my strong belief that the majority view from her executive may in fact support the rights of the LGBT group.

This will be in direct contradiction to the vast majority of the churches in the country and Persad-Bissessar may fear alienating them.

Persad-Bissessar should first demand a vote from her party before she hides behind a call for a national referendum.
