Then recently with the issue with Scott's Quarry in Blanchisseuse I asked why, if Sunway was linked to Calder hart, was the contract to quarry in Blanchisseuse not suspended pending an investigation....only to have confirmed this morning what I have been suspecting for quite some time.....this government has no evidence to substantiate their claims made in elections 2010 about Calder Hart. Their accusations and allegations were likely fabrications. Which means that they probably committed libel and slander on the hustings, having made accusations against both Manning and Hart that cannot now be substantiated.
But my question now is, if the allegations weren't true, why didn't Manning out them on the campaign hustings in 2010? Why didn't Hart himself come forward and call the then Opposition liars....and what does Prakash Ramadhar and Vernon de Lima have to say in light of these revelations because they were the pair that spearheaded that "sting operation" of documentation linking Calder and Sherrine Hart to Sunway?
I wish Trinidad was a place where you got answers to questions.
Well the PNM the PNM and mainstream media keeping the pressure on the government. Sunday was the elevator in the PM residence; with Rowley questioning the appropriateness for the space and the communications team at UDECOTT responding to justify it. Yesterday Rowley announced that the AG is using his $95m budget for cronyism and he named some of the lawyers who are benefitting directly from this budget that the AG has sole responsibility to disburse.
The Opposition also pressed the PM to answer questions about activities at the Diplomatic Centre with The Keith describing it as as a den of iniquity, as well as pointing out that the helicopter trips cost the public purse $3000 per ride.
I think the general picture of the Prime Minister living a lavish lifestyle and being an abuser of the public purse is pretty well established now. Many would say that she is merely following in Patrick Manning's footsteps....or maybe this is an example of good family values....who knows.
Kamla's neighbours, who we met removing a razor wire fence from their property a few weeks ago, have now put their home up for sale as they have found living next to the PM unbearable. The allegations of parties all weekend and sometimes during the week, the constant noise of helicopters hovering overhead, along with aesthetic issues were all listed.
It seems the armed forces under some pressure these days. Seven soldiers have under probe for robberies in Tobago; prisons' officers are about to launch a protest; and Coroner Nalini Singh is advising that three cops be charged with murder.
On the TCL Strike front, it appears that cement supplies are running pretty low. And workers are up in arms about being labelled terrorists.
The last bit of news I will leave you with is the comment from COP chairman that the People Partnership Govt is fragile. I'd much have preferred to hear this come from Ramadhar's mouth than Toney's. Too often Ramadhar is slow to speak or reluctant to comment on the more pressing and glaring issues in this party. Let's hope that he steps up soon enough so that his party membership know what is what....or is this another red herring announcement?
