Is real Panic at the Disco for the People’s Panchayat!
Kamla summon her whole deck of cards…..except Jack!
All because the Keith of Rowley and his paltry band of 10…wait, 9, because Patos on the road to recovery….are about to deliver a No Confidence Motion????
Surely in a partnership that is stronger than ever, with a slew of ministers who performing so efficiently and a the hardest working Prime Minister in the world Queen Kamla can’t posibly be afraid?
So then why 3 public meetings this week?
To avert what?
To explain what?
You aint even make 2 good years in government yet and you already have to convince YOUR constitutents? Water more than flour boy!
Mind you Scott Drugg Report Rambachan is insisting that the govt not panicking and instead trying to make out that the Balisier Tie Affair is a larger issue. Drugg Report Rambachan also trying to convince us that the group of activists who petitioning for a shift in the highway route also asked the PM to hold public meetings of national importance. Desperate much?
PNM all yuh look for that though…..all yuh well embarass all yuh self with that public squabble over which knot it make more sense to go with in Parliament…As a political party you have yet to prove to a wider public that you are capable of change and evolution. All yuh try to pressure Rowely and end up defecating right where all yuh have to eat…PUBLICLY….Carry on Smartly with the internal squabbles and see where it will get you…..
While the Panchayat’s inner circle running like headless chicken to drum up support and figure out what The Keith has up his sleeve, Principal Sita Gajadharsingh-Nangar fights with a security guard and the Minister of Women’s Unmentionables indicates “It wasn’t us!” It appears that this Principal won’t get a break. The Maha Sabha and its supporters continue to attack her and people continue to give them their support. What is happening to Gajadharsingh-Nanga is abusive and illegal….but not a voice has been lifted in condemnation of Sat!
In the latest We Were Never Going After Calder Hart news, the probe’s chief investigator is going on 21 months leave….like he in government? I wonder where An& Ramlogan these days? What really has this AG of ours achieved since he get into government? And it seems Glibbs under fire for stalling too. Glibbs you will never get fired, boy…you are too good a Fall Guy. By tomorrow they go blame you for the KFC Baby death…watch and see!
The country’s murder toll hit 61. But the kuchoor in the politics so intense people don’t even have time to pay attention to who get murdered these days.
TCL strike to hit tomorrow….well let me see how the government dealing with a strike and no-confidence motions and Glibbs and Vasant and Jack and whatever else gets thrown at them this week!
Is the hunt on for a new SSA head? Government have 3 more days before the current contract expires…are they making a move to renew or replace? Any family members applied?
De Vice Cyah Done!
It was the week of our Carnival
And all through the land
We feted and partied
With drinks in our hands!
Normally the week of Carnival is a slow news week.
The major headlines focus on who’s won the Road March title and Band of the Year.
Not that these things weren’t also considerations. But in the space of a carnival week we had:
- A government minister injuring a woman with his vehicle and driving off on Carnival Monday.
- Police arriving late for Carnival duty
- Queries about whether Gibbs’ $.9m Crop Duster was actually used for surveillance during the carnival season or to spray White Oak over the crowd!
- Prof Ramesh Deosaran bashing Gibbs for being incompetent
- Anand Ramesar calling for Gibbs and Ewatski to be removed
- The Govt remaining mum on complaints about Gibbs
- Announcements that Trinmar was being farmed out and Petrotrin as good as sold…with Energy Minister Ramnarine waffling about the details and sounding very shady!
- Jack Warner going almost silent after weeks of mouthing off and analysts predicting his imminent demise.
- Reginald Armour having to recuse himself from the Tribunal that’s investigating Gladys Gafoor because he also counselling the President
- And Sat acting up again where his Maha Sabha schools are concerned.
In all of this the issue that has the Pantomime the most intrigued is the Motion of No Confidence (Wave Yuh Hand Up in De Air) that the Keith of Rowley is bringing on Friday March 2nd. Since it’s announcement Puss in Boots has virtually gone underground….no comments, no sightings, no Louis Vuitton to the Nines in the public face! Knowing The Keith, he doesn’t grand charge….if he is bringing a motion, he’s bringing a motion and the word on the street is that the inhabitants of the Pink Palace have held a pow-wow to figure out what trump card the Keith has up his sleeve. Want to bet they spend the week toeing the line, attempting to be low key about their mishaps while dredging up meaningless red herrings?
The Opposition doesn’t have enough numbers to get the motion passed…but my guess is The Keith isn’t bent on passing the motion, but on getting information out to raise enough concerns in the minds of the citizenry…as if the daily missteps of this government hasn’t been enough.
Short of that Kamla Rani may well orchestrate another SoE to get the heat off her.
Time will tell.
De Vice Cyah Done!
