I read recently that the chairman of the Carnival Development Committee (CDC) has made the decision to skip the public launch for Carnival.
But then the minister responsible for our greatest summer festival has expressed different wishes, noting that the absence of one could jeopardise the CDC’s good relationship with the public.
My question is: Why didn’t they settle on the matter before airing it in public? Nobody cares if the two have differing views; we just want to know whether there’ll be a public launch, yea or nay.
This habit of disagreeing before the public is just not professional. Some advice for the Carnival organisers: Don’t come to the public with your disagreements. Keep them behind closed doors, work them out, decide on a stance and then tell us your position.
And for the record, I agree with the CDC chairman’s decision to forego the public launch and keep the monies in the kitty.
The media launch turned out to be a rather high-standard, entertaining event. Leave it at that. No one wants to attend a low-budget, forgettable event.
