UNC ‘Supporters’ Outside Parliament
They turned out to picket the parliament in support of the prime minister, but many didn’t know why or what was taking place in the House.
With diverse ethnicities supporting the two main political parties, one wonders how many politicians and activists view their supporters in similar ways as Jaishima Laladharsingh?
According to an Express report, back in September 2013, in what was described as a “closed UNC group”, he [Jaishima Laladharsingh] advised his “apan jhat” brethren to summon groups of “niggers” to attend a protest at City Hall that was being staged by the Partnership Government. “…My pick would be for the niggers…they pushy enough and gullible…it would not take much to sway them…it would also enhance the look of the PPG having the African members protesting…”

Imbert: Waste of time
“Foolishness and a waste of time.” That was how People’s National Movement MP Colm Imbert dismissed government’s no-confidence motion against Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley during yesterday’s debate on the motion. Imbert was replying to People’s Partnership (PP) House Leader Dr Roodal Moonilal’s piloting of the motion in Parliament. Imbert later had to withdraw the word “foolish” on House Speaker Wade Mark’s request because it was deemed unparliamentary language.

THE walkout by the Opposition bench yesterday was a “strategic move” that effectively doused the fire the Government intended to bring to the House of Representatives with respect to Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley, political analyst Dr Winford James said yesterday. A motion of no confidence against Rowley was moved by Dr Roodal Moonilal around 2 p.m. yesterday.

The most worrying aspect of the recent cyberbullying against our journalists is the complete silence by the Persad-Bissessar administration which has shown no interest in dissuading its supporters from such obnoxious behaviour or in denouncing their activity. While it is convenient for the Government to distance itself from these bloggers now that the issue has exploded publicly, it is worth noting that several of these persons seem to enjoy the Government’s favour, either through employment and contracts or by association.
Jack walks out too
CHAGUANAS West MP Jack Warner stayed in the Lower House after the Opposition’s walkout from yesterday’s no-confidence debate in Opposition Leader, Dr Keith Rowley, but later himself walked out in apparent protest at the limits of the subject matter allowed in the debate.
‘Rowley a child of rape’
TOBAGO East MP Vernella Alleyne-Toppin yesterday suggested Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley was born as a result of rape and that these circumstances have made him “aggressive” and “arrogant”. Any members of the public gallery who might have started to doze off yesterday afternoon at Parliament at the International Waterfront Centre, Port of Spain, were shocked into alertness when Alleyne-Toppin told the house of a story, related to her by “an old man in Mason Hall”, Tobago, which spoke of the rape of a young girl and the resultant offspring, who was now an aspiring leader.
