A trenchant statement of intent!

By Stanley Collymore


 


I know who and what I am and likewise what I’ve always


aspired to be, and although there have been occasions


in my life when unforeseen or even conspiratorial


circumstances have cruelly and unfairly


conspired against me to forestall


my deliberately planned and


profoundly cherished


endeavours and the accomplishments which I’d


anticipatorily sought to realize; I’ve always


in response to these unwarrantable actions


approached such challenges with an


open mind, and have never once


allowed them to cloud my


judgement or in any


way, come to that, interfere in, much less threaten


the manner in which I’ve personally sought to


live my life. And consequently I shall never


allow anyone or anything: corporations,


politicians, jobsworth employees –


private or state sector – the state’s


Orwellian apparatuses or


individuals, for that


matter, to ever


change that!
