  • This is simply an admission of the failure of Patrick Manning. He is facing a motion of no-confidence in Parliament and fears the success of such a motion, considering the dissatisfaction of many of his members. In the words of the leader of the Opposition :
    He is petrified of the information which would have come before the Parliament:
    • The UDeCOTT and Calder Hart issue,
    • the release of the findings of the Uff Commission of Enquiry,
    • the criminal probe into the Abu Bakr land deal,
    • the construction of a Church at Guanapo Heights
    • the dangerous Trinidad and Tobago Revenue Authority Bill,
    • the unpopular property tax,
    • a nation buckled by fear of unchecked crime,
    • a breakdown in the provision of health, water, education,
    • the squandering of our nation’s resources.
