Crimeclusterf@$k/Political Pantomime 21mts, 25dys: Poachers’ Rights!

San Fernando Mayor MArlene Coudray...did the UNC hunt her down? Photo courtesy Trinidad Guardian website.

 

 

Well yesterday we thought the Red Howler monkeys was the endangered specie of the day….but is apparently COP members.

Marlene Coudray ups and leave the COP in one breath, and join the UNC and end up as a candidate in their internal elections in the next breath….easy easy so….and without so much as a bye your leave to her political leader…after all she is a big woman!

Chairman of of the COP, Joseph Toney vex to buss and he warning the UNC don’t poach, or else the People’s Panchayat go mash up!  We go believe that when it come out Prakash mouth….you know how you boy fraid to lose he seat in Parliament! And to add insult to injury Roodal Moonilal reminded the COP that their party started off by poaching its members and the UNC has room for all!  And in all of this Marlene Coudray cool, cool. How the saying does go again??? Tief from Tief does make God Laugh!

Anybody keeping an eye on CAL? Apparently the company owe the Treasury real $$$$$$ in aviation fuel….how come nobody aint pulling up on them?

Gypsy well boof up constituents in Mayaro last night when he and them clash over bad roads. If you missed his meltdown on the news last night check it out here.

Well ah hear Shoppin Toppin had to apologise after Fuad Khan issue he apology and further to that she credit card get cancelled.

Ms Toppin, I want you to resign! Your apology for abuse of public funds is inadequate and late!

Further to that, I do believe you are lying when you say you were unaware of how the card was supposed to be used. In fact, every time you open your mouth about the card your lies become larger and larger.

The smart and honourable thing to do is step down….we don’t want dishonest and arrogant public officers like you!

TCL strike beginning to get very disturbing, when is not Maxi getting stoned, and Mayo residents’ water source being interfered with is homes getting firebombed. Is one thing to strike for better pay, but why so things have to get to violent? Roget, what is your position on this?

Speaking of fiery protests, Penal residents still vex with Kamla. And they have vowed to keep protesting until the Prime Minister, who is also their MP, meets with them because they are fed up of her empty promises…..imagine that…Kamla does make empty promises….you don’t say!

The upcoming Law Association elections looking stickier and stickier every week. Now their Head administrator resigned and Seetahal says no-comment. Keep an eye on this election folks…it might be more crucial than the UNC internals!

The Integrity Commission Tribunal anxious to probe the matter of Gladys de Badiss. Long time my favourite stalwart aint make the news! And it look like the Judge for Gladys case might have to recuse himself too….just now we will run out of people who could question Gladys!

In more news about people who don’t work and drawing big salary…..no, not the PM, I talking about The Hot shot Top Cop, Gibbs. The Commish is reported as saying there is tension between him and the PSC. Maybe because he got a negative performance appraisal…I wonder what Gibbs woulda say if he got a good appraisal…and what he think he really accomplish in the last 21months and 25days? And where the Crime Plan??????

 

ah boy….between credit card fraud, poaching each others party members, and non-performance by this government De Vice Cyah Done!

All eyes on the Commish!

 

So Gibbs missing the mark! It aint have nothing new about that….what is the Govt doing about it? Nothing but talk because they need to keep their favourite Fall Guy.

watch and observe folks….for all the boof Gibbs might get from the AG, Sandy, Griffith or the PM he aint going NOWHERE!

Apparently the 21st Century uniforms going to be worn by recruits and not officers. You see how these people could bad spend money!

Speaking of bad-spending….Colm, what is the real story behind this No Float Ferry?

And Vernella….what is the position with you and the Govt credit card? If the card only meant to be used internationally, then why are you using it here? Your salary run out? You have hidden debts and depths to you ma’am? If the card supposed to be used only when you abroad then why you withdrawing from local ATMs? The bill collector harassing you?

Like Lee Sing trying to back pedal now that he see people aint too keen on his letter to Keith. Ahh Louis…you will be the architect of your own downfall…mark my words! Your council will work towards your removal.

The Bas spitting fire and brimstone and threatening legal action against the UNC…March going to be a month of Madness, oui.

And in the meantime the IC Tribunal waiting on Gldys the Badiss court action.

 

De Vice Cyah Done!

This Week in Clusterf@$kS (TWICKS): Reshmi Reloaded!

February 26th – March 3rd

Listen….and listen well…if Hollywood make a movie based on Trinidad, no one….and I repeat, NO ONE, will go and see it because it too unbelievable!

Let me start in proper order:

At the start of the week Kamla Rani kick off the travelling Comedy Caravan aka  I Have Confidence in ME! Campaign that I like to call UNConfidence 2012.
It was a week of ads in the news papers, public meetings, television interviews all designed to remind the public that this government is the best thing since sliced bread and Kiss Sada Roti!

In the midst of the advertising and politicking TCL on strike, somebody try to kill Ian Alleyne, and a man who survive 9 bullets get murdered……No Crime Plan in sight, the Economy Stagnant, we Commissioner of Police doing pure lala…but  I have confidence in Kamla….

So Friday, UNConfidence Day reach and ppl park up by radio, tv and internet….FB and Twitter was hottttt no tail…..and is 30 hours we get in we pweffen….in that 30hrs Rowley and his Gang of Ten (or is it 9…do we count Patrick? He wasn’t present, but he name well get call up!) presented their case, buss ah mark and take real licks from Kamla’s Joker Deck of 29.

During that debate, besides listing all the issues the Pantomime complaining about a while now, Rowley make we to know that when Kamla said “Let’s Move On”, what she really meant was, “Let’s get a new name and start over!” Anybody remember when Reshmi ramnarine resigned in Jan 2011? Well according to the mark The Keith buss,” She’s BAAAAACK!” But this time you have to call her Shashi! Mind you both Reshmi/Shashi and Tim Gopeesingh deny she’s employed with the Govt.

ME aint mind the girl change she name you know…..but is my tax $$$$ paying the salary of someone who was as dishonest as Reshmi Ramnarine was?
Is someone who was part of one of the biggest scandals and cover-ups this Govt was embroiled in still working in our govt?

Needless to say the Kamla and her Deck of Jokers pretend like is not an issue….it not smelling bad or looking bad.
Instead they spend our precious time refusing to answer a question posed by the opposition and instead resorted to Blame the PNM rhetoric and even use Louis Lee Sing as a substitute on their small goal team…..

The Keith take good jamming from the govt benches over the letter that Mayor Lee Sing issued to the PNM executive questioning Rowley’s No Confidence Motion…but the Keith shrug off Lee Sing as a non-issue.

In the midst of the UNConfidence melee it is alleged that Gallery Griffith try to gangsta MP Donna Cox. I wonder what they feeding Griffith?

The latest with we Commish is that is water more than flour with Glibbs….he was wrong to rent the toy plane… and mark my words, they still not going to fire their favourite Fall Guy!

I hear I am a Gladys the Badiss suing fete to de I-Max and the Integrity Commission. So Max wasn’t getting legal advice? Nobody aint remember this lady title is Justice Gafoor?

The Parliament Pappy Show barely die down and the Vice Cyah Done start up again!

TWICKS (This Week In Clusterf@$KS): Feb 13th- 19th

Mr Fete Machel Montano and Miss-Must-Fete-Despite-Having-a-Country-to-Run!

There were many stories this week that battled for primacy of place in the Pantomime; but for many reasons the Prime Minister’s appearance at Machel Monday on February 13th earned top position. The incident took place at the start of the week and threw most of the nation into a total tailspin, not because her presence at fetes are unexpected; indeed, like any Trini worth her salt, the PM seems to have racked up more feting time than office hours since her return from the India Extravaganza. It seems too that on her way back from India she made a stop in London to buy a pair of pricey Louis Vuittons that she showed off to the crowd at Machel Monday. The PM’s detractors were loudly critical of her appearance on the stage as well as her dress code. Those in favour of the PM and desperate for this govenment to remain relevant and in power immediately dismissed the furor over Kamla’s inappropriate dress code as a “non-story”, what’s the fuss about? Do we question Rowley’s underwear?  The level of moral relatavism that was employed to shift from the real issue at hand was a clear sign that the supporters of this government have grown desperate. To not see those boots as vulgar and inappropriate and a symbol of what this government, certainly its Prime Minister, has come to represent to significant portions of the population, is to put one’s head in the sand. Kamla mounted a stage in an ad hoc manner representing not her private self, but the country as PM, and sought to honour a soca artiste with an award that is yet to be named, and whose reason is yet to be explained, dressed in exactly the sort of ostentatious bling that we decry in the nation’s youth when we talk of their value systems. What made our PM this last Monday a role model to the nation in any real sense? What made her a leader or stateswoman in that stunt on stage? Come Carnival Monday and Tuesday she intends to jump with Trini Revellers in a section whose theme is based on Africa….more pappy show for the masses. Take that in all yuh gaaaar!

The other reason this story received top billing was what the image above also symbolised for the fete goers and soca lovers. This appeared to be Kamla Rani’s public endorsement of Double M for major prizes at Soca Monarch and within seconds of entering the stage the talk went around the Hasely Crawford Stadium that Montano had to indeed still be in the government’s pocket. The Machel Hate and the Iwer Support became renewed and MMHD would spend the rest of this week battling not just his own demons about winning the competition but the spirit of the Vengeance of Moko that so many of the Carnival population would feel was his just due to publicly aligning himself with the government. Many asked, “who is the pimp in that relationship: Machel or Kamla?”

Then came Fantastic Friday and though Montano delivered two technically proficient performances (his voice was hoarse though and he resorted to bellowing, but then so did most of the competition), it was clear that he didn’t have as much audience support as he used to command in his pre-competition days. Montano would go on to cop not one, but both titles, as most people suspected; and now in the minds of most, Montano, for all his obvious talent and mastery of the musical form has sunk to the position of Government Stooge in the eyes of many. HE is in bed with government it seems, and willing to sell his social capital in exchange for real liquidity. So the PP Govt is reliant on his fan base to remain popular, populist and relevant. But the tides are turning for both HD and the Govt…

Of course one of the delicious little ironies that the Pantomime has noticed is that many people seem to want to ignore that Iwer George, who now has popular support as the wronged and robbed soca artiste who is entitled to the crowns, was and is openly PNM and benefitted greatly from PNM largesse. While then PM Manning never came on stage to wine and bling out and publicly endorse George, everyone within the industry knew that Iwer was heavily endorsed and supported by the PNM…indeed there is much to sustain rumours that George has been involved in diesel bunkering since the PNM’s tenure. So the ire of George’s fans may well be a case of political do so aint like so!

The OWTU brought the government to its knees this week, and who don’t want to see that or concede to it hadda be smoking what destroyed Whitney Houston. Ancil Roget and his cohorts using a combination of gas and mas, turned the government on its head as he exploited the People’s Panchayat’s greatest fear: the shut down of the country on their watch! A national strike is akin to the 1990 coup for this government because it is a stigma and ghost they will NEVER be able to escape. Roget set the pack nicely. Waiting the week of Carnival they announced the strike, knowing full well that if the strike began Carnival Saturday and ran for 90 days there’d be no Carnival to distract the natives from the pressures of gas shortages, long lines to fill up and even more frustration in a place that is already a pressure cooker given the ineptitude of the govt.The government tried to grand charge with small pieces of trump like threatening to import gas and deploying the army. Game went to the union though, who got 9%. Now I wonder how the PSA 5% cap supporters feeling today?

The cornered Jack Warner

Fifagate has gotten to be too much for the Pantomime to fathom at this stage. Who aint suing little Jack Warner is who aint remember he owe them $$$ or who aint land in the country yet for the Carnival that is Jack! On February 12th wired8686.com’s Lasana Liburd dropped a bombshell that revealed Warner was involved in an Haitian aid scandal scheme. Warner just can’t seem to cut a break or start smelling clean. In typical Warneriffic style he threatened to sue Liburd for defamation and continued to avoid answering any real questions. The UNC party has also taken to pretending that there is no stench coming from Jack despite a clamouring public and numerous opinion polls. When Liburd contacted members of the UNC executive, either his calls got cut off or they indicated that there was no need to investigate the many problems plaguing Warner. Weird much?

AG Anand Ramlogan: Forgetful Jones? Photo courtesy Trinidad Express website.

In a move that struck of pure convenience the AG decided that he wanted nothing to do with the ACIB, despite knowing that this was a body that has been under the direct rule of the AG’s office since the tenure of Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj as AG. An& has singlehandedly convinced me that not only is government aware of precisely what went down during that raid on Newsday and Andre Bagoo’s home, but that they were probably the ones who instructed the operations and are now seeking to play a clever game of cover your ass. It is Clarence Rambharat’s article earlier this week, along with fmr AG’s Maharaj’s comments on CNC 3 that put the nail in the coffin for me. Mr Ramlogan even wrote about it during his time as a columist for local newspapers. And, just as eager to avoid the storm that the govt being linked to an attack on the media is likely to cause, the PM has readily agreed that she will remove the ACIB from under Ramlogan and place it under Gibbs, a man who has proven to us time and again that his major duty as CoP is to be the govt’s Fall Guy! What has me curios is this…why all the elaborate lies An&, when so many people would have been able to call you out on your claims of ignorance about the ACIB? Are you that convinced that the population is that gullible? Thank goodness we have Justice Rambharat’s article to help refresh your memory. But it’s worrisome that in light of the Newsday Raid you throw the spotlight on the Police Commissioner when in truth and in fact it’s really you, dear Mr AG, that has to explain why the ACIB conducted that raid…isn’t it?

The Commish!

 

The National Fall Guy Glibbs got his performance review this week and the PSC under Ramesh Deosaran gave the Hot Shot Top Cop a pass!  Then backpedalled, a dance so common under our current regime, and said it provisional. One member of the team even declined to sign off on the review. So now, we don’t know whether Glibbs has passed or not, what we do know is that Glibb’s continues to have a free hand under this government to make mistake after mistake and cock up after cock up in the name of National Security!

 

 

 

Justice Gladys Gafoor, throwing dust in dey face these days.

 

The Gladys Gafoor Affair has gotten even more complicated. No one knows if I-am-a-Gladys was informed by the President of her suspension, who gave the order in the Minisrty of Foreign Affairs and Communications to tamper with the President’s press release or if the President is still an independent office, because he clearly seems to be taking orders from someone…but why? What gives Max?

And in between all of this, it’s still murders, robberies and general crime on a regular. Calypsonians want more monies, Louis wants a bottle ban, road accidents aplenty and prophets throwing wine all on Kamala!

De Vice Cyah Done!

Have a Happy and Safe Carnival to All. See you Ash Wednesday!

Sound the horns, because Roget coming!

In 3 days if the Government doesn’t come through with far more favourable terms this country is likely to shutdown for 90 days and in a sweetly ironic twist it is a member of our current Govt who has signed the notice of war: David Quicksilver Abdullah! http://www.guardian.co.tt/news/2012-02-15/roget-warns-90-days-war

Lines for gas grow as fuel reserves go lower and lower.

Both Queen Kamla and the Energy Imp, Kevin, have gone on record saying gas reserves are there, while reports show that reserves are lower than they should be. The Imp   has even declared that he will IMPORT fuel if he needs to…..with what $$$$$ Kevin?

http://www.guardian.co.tt/news/2012-02-15/gas-running-out-south

http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,155387.html

The most repeated lines of this Pantomime these days are: I don’t know; I wasn’t informed: I was advised or I’ll launch an investigation into it.

Lawyers want to know why Andre Bagoo’s house is under police surveillance….and Glibbs, the Ken to Kamla Rani’s Barbie, has responded that he………doesn’t know! http://www.trinidadexpress.com/news/Police_car_outside_reporter_s_home__lawyer_wants_answer-139265273.html

This Govt sinks accountability to newer depths daily.

As if long lines at the gas station and short supplies of fuel aren’t enough, the Police Service is coming under regular fire for poor performance, poor execution of its duties, and poor training that reveals a deep, dark festering core of corrupt practies. Two foreign media bodies have called on local police to apologise for the raids….let’s see how long Glibbs, An& and the Queen intend to drag this out for.

http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,155388.html

The AG who seems to be slow to take action or responsibility these days.....any word on Calder Hart?

Discontent is brewing in the far lands to the north east….THA’s London has written to the AG on non-action on two Bills.
An&, boy things beginning to look real sticky. First you have absolutely no clue about what going on in the Anti-Corruption Bureau, a division that falls under your remit. Or are you making that up? Remember complaining about the unit a few years ago? Saying that it was the AG’s secret police? Now you claiming ignorance on the raid on Newsday and passing the buck. You tell Kamla Rani you don’t want that division no more and like a spoilt child throw it back to Glibbs the Fall Guy?????? Responsible behaviour from this People’s Panchayat too bad! http://www.trinidadexpress.com/commentaries/Helping_Anand_look_back-139265298.html

Add to all of this the ever escalating crime situation, 2 more gunned down, the murder toll is now 53. http://www.guardian.co.tt/news/2012-02-15/two-more-gunned-down-north

Paula Chester-Cumberbatch, who was fired by one RHA  has been hired to run Tobago’s RHA…..huh? http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,155390.html

New twists and turns in the Non-Integrity Commission Gafoor/Gordon Affair….university lecturer alleges that Gordon is also in breach of laws and could well be dismissed too.  http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,155347.html

Gladys the Badiss insists she not moving! http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,155344.html

PantyGate becoming a full fledged 5-act play complete with its own play-within-a-play! Now Sita Gajardharsingh-Nanga, who wanted a transfer from under Sat so badly is now challenging her transfer orders…..So you prefer the conditions under the Panty Rajah? Battered wife syndrome much? http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,155349.html

And while Trinidad and Tobago burns the Queen going to fete after fete after fete!

De Vice Cyah Done!!!!

Miss Must Fete in her favourite place....on a stage, close to a mic....careful HD, she might take over your career!

A clusterf@$k describes a perfect storm being created by the coming together or even collision of the right elements.

A pantomime is a theatrical production put on by actors.

This country seems to be heading towards a clusterfuck while depending on a troupe of actors to run the country in the midst of what is clearly a growing crisis. 

Crimeclusterf@$k/Political Pantomime 20mts, 21dys:

Mr and Ms Fete!

Clearly I misjudged Miss Must Fete….she aint a partier….she is the FETE PROMOTER!

Imagine Kamla Rani show up on the stage in Machel Monday’s Carnival Fete……to honour Benjai?

For what?
What has Benjai done to get an honour from the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago?
None of that was made clear.

What was clear was that the Prime Minister was clearly politicking
Machel Montano was continuing to curry favour with the govt of the day (nails in your coffin son….trust meh…take all the prize $$$ you can and RUUNNNN!)

And many members of the audience were UN-Im-PRESSED!

Is the Pantomime toting?
Hell yeah!
Nothing wrong with the PM of the country, any country, having a night out in the VIP section and enjoying entertainment.
But why you onstage everynight??
Chutney Brass, Chutney Soca Monarch,  Machel Monday?

You is a deejay or you own Prestige Promotions?

Does sitting in the office of the PM mean nothing?
Is stateswomanship a lost art?
There was no reason to be up on that stage.
You aint handing over an award.
So I can only assume you was there to ramajay yourself!

Speaking of ramajy yourself….I am a Gladys come out the corner gloves swinging and leggoing some hard cuffs behind President Fete to de Max! http://www.trinidadexpress.com/news/GAFOOR__BLASTS__MAX-139265283.html#idc-container

PSA wants a probe into top cops who doh pay their traffic tkts..http://www.guardian.co.tt/news/2012-02-13/cops-want-probe-attempted-ticket-fix

Valencia murder accused hit court….at least we seeing 1 murder for the year have some momentum towards a solution. http://www.guardian.co.tt/news/2012-02-13/3-courts-murder-charge

Prakash see the opportunity to start a campaign against Gibbs and for the Media and possibly resuscitate the COP as a viable party….after 20mts of sitting silent and allowing the Panchayat to advantage the country, Prakash now find he voice…..

De Vice Cyah Done in the place because the PIGS only know to take ADVANTAGE!

(TWICKS): This Week In Clusterf@$KS – Feb 6th- 12th, 2012

The calm and unflappable face of the TTPS: Sgt Wayne Mystar. Photo courtesy the Newsday's website.

This wasn’t a good week for the Trinidad and Tobago Police service inspite of the straight face and neutral voice of Sgt Wayne Mystar. Just as the public seemed to be coming to terms with their brutal handling of members of the Panorama semis crowd came the announcement of a raid on Newsday’s office that targeted specifically reporter Andre Bagoo.

The cornered Jack Warner

Fmr Fifa Vice President, Jack Warner also had a pretty screwed week, what with Fifa suspending his pension plan, the Soca Warriors seizing his property in lieu of payments owed and now his name being linked to a Haitian aid scandal. I’m not sure that Warner can build enough roads and bridges to dig himself out of the hole he in. http://wired868.com/868/index.php/volley/item/91-warner-named-in-haitian-aid-scandal

Justice Gladys "De Badiss" Gafoor. Photo courtesy Newsday.

Deputy Chair woman of the Integrity Commission, the badiss Gladys Gafoor, has gone from admonishing Ken Gordon to being in the centre of a $hit storm so magnificent it may well put an end to Intergrity Commissions. It is alleged that Mrs Gafoor has been leaking information to the media: specifically journalist Andre Bagoo. In light of this President Fete to de Max Richards dismissed Justice Gafoor from the IC (and that dismissal in and of itself rife with kuchoor, because the media release was intercepted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Communications and doctored before being released to the public. No one knows who did the doctoring or why…just that it was done). The IC then called for a full investigation. This investigation led to a raid on a media house and the entire People’s Panchayat Govt rushing to condemn the police’s action, and for the AG to go so far as to deny association with the Anti-Corruption Investigation Bureau (who carried out the raid) even though they fall within the ambit of the AG’s office. Ramlogan has gone on record to the Trinidad Express as saying he, “he viewed any continued connection between his office and the ACIB as an “embarrassment” and intended to speak with Commissioner of Police Dwayne Gibbs to once again assume full control of the unit.” http://www.trinidadexpress.com/news/NO_CONTROL__OVER_COPS-139168474.html. If indeed Justice Gafoor did leak information to Andre Bagoo then she has single handedly created problems for the Integrity Commission, the Government and the Media…..and people wonder why the Pantomime say Gladys is a Badiss or Epic Proportions!

Such is the influence of the “Badiss” that COP Leader Prakash Ramadhar suddenly remembered that he too had a mandate in the Parliament not as Kamla Rani’s stooge, but as the representative of a demographic, and he took to the television to make clear that his party in no way supported the attack on reporter Andre Bagoo and the Newsday.

Andre Bagoo: the little reporter who could, and may well be the straw to break the IC's back! Photo courtesy Andre Bagoo's blog.

This latest snafu with the IC has many calling for an end to the institution. What’s the point of this committee if we clearly no longer have citizens with integrity. It seems every week there’s a new problem with a member of the integrity commission. From priests who plagiarise, to entire Commissions being found lacking and having to dismantle. If we don’t have the people to man the board….then dismantle the Pappy Show! http://newsday.co.tt/news/print,0,155132.html

Another niggling issue has to be the invincibility of Hot Shot Top Cop Dwayne Gibbs. This man like Teflon! HE remains untouched by a failed State of Emergency, questionable dispensation of public funds, support of Police intimidation of the Media and general incompetence. Every week there is a new installment to the Dwayne Glibbs’ show and no one seems motivated to fire him. The Government studiously ignores all calls for Glibbs’ removal…and I’m beginning to think that Glibbs’ job isn’t to deal with crime, but to act as the Government’s Fall Guy for all breaches in the protective services…..so it’s never the People’s Panchayat’s fault….just that damned foreigner from Canada, ent Kamla Rani?

Apart from the issues with the FIFA, TTFF, Police, Media and IC, the energy industry has been having a tumultuous week that has been overshadowed. Ministers Bhoe Tewarie and Kevin Ramnarine are embroiled in transactions with Saudi Arabia that led to the US having to levy a boof on the PM and now moves to privatise Trinmar seem suspicious. Is the national patrimony being sold? And if so are members of this govt lining themselves up to benefit from the sales while the country continues to suffer?

Sita Gajardharsingh-Nanga. Photo courtesy Trinidad Express.

The Principal at the Tunapuna Hindu School, Sita Gajardarsingh-Nanga, got her transfer, then decided that she liked Sat Maharaj’s mistreatment of her more than she wanted to transfer; and so has declined the opportunity to transfer. Expect fireworks in the coming week on this issue….because with no more feral cattle to rustle in Icacos, Sat can now return to the issues that he loves best: blocking school gates, searching for visible panty lines, ferreting out non-Hindus, and managing wilful Hindu women who don’t know their place under him! http://www.trinidadexpress.com/news/Sat__Sita_can_t_be_principal_at_2_schools-139168464.html

And with all of these issues occupying our minds we still have:
*Dwayne Glibb’s crop duster plane rented at $.9m and the reasoning behind it.
* An explanation for the Newsday raid.
* TV6 Board of Directors being called in for questioning on the Crime Watch Rape tape.
* Dwayne Gibb’s assessment by the PSC….how this man still have ah wuk?

* 3 violent murders this week.
And the usual bacchanal leading up to the festival that defines this country, for better or for worse, Carnival!

De Vice Cyah Done!

Crime Clusterf@$k/Political Pantomime 20mts, 18dys: The Gladys Affair!

Some of the key players in this latest police raid fiasco. Gibbs, Sandy, Persad-Bissessar and Ramlogan, all of whom are ignorant of the why the raid took place.

Gladys Gafoor, investigations into her time as deputy chairwoman into the Integrity Commission has put the country in a tailspin. Photo courtesy Newsday.

Well like this Pantomime cyah get no sleep because kuchoor, lawlessness and corruption flowing fast and furious in this place.

The Gladys Affair well picking up speed.
We gone from Gladys telling Ken to mind he business,

To Gladys the badiss being dismissed.
And now, Newsday get raid and Sgt Koon Koon saying nobody order the raid, he do it on he own steam. Doh hot yuh head! http://www.guardian.co.tt/news/2012-02-10/no-directive-given-says-senior-officer
So who is the judge that issue the warrant to search Newsday and Andre Bagoo home, Sgt Koon Koon?
The Judge ketch a vaps just so and issue warrant?
Meanwhile the Integrity Commission issue a press release to say they asked a for a full investigation.

This Integrity Commission, ironically enough is chaired by media mogul Ken Gordon, whose media house TV6 was the target of a police raid just last month.
I wonder how he feels about the police’s intimidation of the media?
