To execute this most recent acquisition without the public being aware and asking questions is indeed a feat most administrations would envy.
One wonders how many other things are being procured at this time without any scrutiny.
The Sandals debacle and others seem to have motivated implementation of a 'dark' procurement policy.

So once again we the people are kept out of the loop on our tax paying monies being used to purchase another fr1gg1ng boat?

WTMC is wrong with Trinidad politishitans? Why do we sit back and aloe this level of utter blatant fukupery? Our leaders should all fking burn in hell for their thievery and their utter ignorance and corruption.

This is quite hilarious and most certainly informs the fact that tax payers and the public at large are totally irrelevant in the eyes of those who rule.
Maybe a picture which applies is

The most alarming thing there is that no technical team went to look at the ferry :shock: Just these two freeloading PNM cronies, and they arrogant like fack on top of it too!
Anyhow, we shouldn't be upset, because didn't the esteemed PM fly all the way to Australia, sans technical team to select ferries?

Pray tell what "we the people" would do to stop this? Were you even aware of it?

Once again it's actually the lazy Opposition who are not representing the other side. They are just not doing their duty at all. It's so frustrating seeing what Kamla et al have been doing since 2015, taking a literal holiday. No wonder people does consistently vote PNM yes. PNM does actually perform all the time no matter what side of the bench they sitting on, no matter what lies and sins they commit.

This is the real reason why UNC is finished and the next election is PNM country. It's not that the people stupid and zr keeps braying. It's because the other side are completely unreliable and have abandoned the people, but only show up when they want power. And Kamla really expect people to miraculously vote them back in in 2020?

Ask yourself if this was switched around. PNM lambasting the UNC ass left right and center every single day in Parliament, hounding them down, getting all the inside info, having town meetings to spread the bad word, as if UNC committed the worst murder on Tobago's head ever.

Their strategy seems to be to let the PNM hang themselves. Risky, as most Trinis have the attention span of a gnat.

But they won't! Because all these "problems" will suddenly tidy up and resolve in 2020, and the PNM will have nothing in their way. And truthfully, why would people want back UNC? Haven't forgotten about the last set of corruption. And they've been doing absolutely nothing since. PNM will play politics and turn some tricks and appear like saints next to them on the 2020 platform.

It's not that the people stupid, but that they're not given a better choice.

PNM perform in opposition? well rowley voiced emailgate, and pledged to not vote with government for nothing.
apart from that, i cant recall what they did while in opposition.


UNC in a kinda damned if u do/dont situation. they say nothing, they get blamed for not doing anyhting, and loose the confidence of their supporters. they come out and talk, they get blame for making noise, and not letting the government do their wuk.

but, politics wise, it would be prudent to rev up the campaign soon. not just speak out on individual matters. hold some meetings, and spend hours delving into the activity of the pnm.
proceed on a proper postmortem of the last 3.5 years. do that at least once a month.

it is wise to bide ur time, but they hadda pong the iron while it hot, cause if they wait too long it will be too little too late.
lock it into the people's minds while it fresh. when u see the print out of the meeting in the papers, it will be too many points to dismiss with the arrogance.

It's called playing politics, not telling the truth. Truth means nothing in politics, it's all about giving people feelings to vote with their riled up hearts. PNM does it well. Rowley toppled the last government with a set of fake email and non-stop corruption hysteria, UNC didn't peep when it was revealed that it was fake when they were on the other side. And the PNM committing even more corruption than the UNC ever did. Hearing anything? They failed miserably in this very topic about the ferry. Yeah they well biding their time right. Watch and see how they will still be biding it in 2025.

You must watch some Question Time in the UK Parliament, and see how an Opposition should perform.

We're not holding politicians to account. We are not going out by MP offices and in front parliament demanding better. We quicker make some noise on social media which then descends into PNM sycophants vs UNC sycophants until the next story.

Yes i agree that the UNC opposition is weak and lazy but we the people just have mouth for a few days and we move on to something else. Last week was Al wari and he still going to collect rent. This boat will come and sail between T&T normal. Cabo star still here making easy money.

I will agree and admit that when PNM was in opposition, although hypocritical, they were on the ball.

Well Sinninan referenced the tender for the lease in the 2019 budget debate, and in follow up press articles....so it's public knowledge since Sept/Oct 2018.
So we know the tender went out,and was closing...

The entire process of the purchase of the 2 Aus ferries was also detailed by the PM in Parliament since then,technical consultations, finance arrangements and all.

What more needs to be said?
