That is why I say ,whoever it is they should be charged. I searched the pic and name and not getting it linked to any post like that. I doubt anybody would write something like that using their real name and photo, knowing people going to recognize them.

Ras, I doh really deal up with all that "dem too" arguments, nor I entertain or support any racial slander coming from either side esp coming from black ass trinis who arguing who more black and who better than who.

I doh follow any political blogs/pages on social media. I only read comments when posts get shared.

But what I would say is there seems to be a level of everyday accepted racial mudslinging that's synonymous with UNC and dey pages like is some form of proud strength to display that enriched the culture.

If u dont notice, or refuse to, or support it well word. If u find dem too does do it, word on that too

After getting publicly make out I don't think anyone would keep their same profile pic or even keep their profile active..

And you'll be surprised the kind of dumb sheit ppl freely post on social media using their whole government name. Idk if dem does hope no opposing ppl read it or the comment just get lost in the time line or cuz they really don't business and dgaf.

ALL of them are guilty of it, I just find that too many times the focus is on "dem racial Indian and dem" hypocrisy, that allows this "us and them" to fester. I make it a point to point it out because diehards like Tokesy and Red Kamla shouldn't get away with it without at least a balancing out. I know you rarely engage in the politricks thing

Look at performance from the most experienced party in T&T politics!

"HDC agreed to pay up-front, even before a single nail is driven, 100 per cent of the contract price within 28 days of the signing; to convert 60 per cent of the $485 million to precious US dollars; to absolve CGGC from paying customs or import duties, and other fees or charges in accordance with T&T laws and, if the exemptions were not approved, to pay them out of its own resources. In addition, instead of local labour, 600 Chinese workers were to be employed on the project and provided work permits and temporary housing by HDC on five acres of land located within five kilometres from each building site. And provided with round-the-clock security! The HDC “shall, at its cost, provide sufficient security for contractor’s personnel and property. During the project, at least one patrol car with two armed police shall be arranged for each site 24 hours per day by the local police station.”

Man Head Weavy only opens her yap on command from the Rottweiler JUHN Scarfy. After all 143K with no source, plus abuse of a Gov't credit card to buy hair and sperm is small thing to JUHN Scarfy compared to "knowledge" about an arrest :roll:

something to occupy media time away from any pressing into who saw the HDC CGGC contract and thought it was good, and how much is the penalty for us cancelling the contract.

Rowley: Don’t blame Newman George for HDC/China deal collapse
Sean Douglas

NEWMAN GEORGE, Housing Development Corporation (HDC), is not to be blamed for the cancelled US$72 million contract between the HDC and China Gezhouba Group International Engineering Co Ltd (CGGC), the Prime Minister said at a briefing yesterday at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann’s, to mark his return from a US trip.

Reporters asked about George’s naming as head of Paria Fuel Trading Company, following the failed HDC/Gezhouba deal.

“We didn’t put Newman George to run the HDC. This is not a Newman George thing,” Rowley replied. He said "many, many people" were involved in preparing this contract.

“The board of HDC is not Newman George. The management of HDC is not Newman George. We are not personalising this.”

He said the HDC was an agency which had come to a position.

Rowley said it was irrelevant and just an administrative issue if he as Prime Minister had also held the housing portfolio at the time the contract was signed.

Asked if he had confidence in George heading to Paria, Rowley said, “If I didn’t have confidence in him, I’d not allow Cabinet to appoint him there.”

Rowley said the project re-tender may not be for as much as US$72 million.

He said there is no shame over the contract cancellation.

The PM said the project was part of a debate over the powers of statutory authorities/state enterprises versus those of Cabinet, with different attorneys having different views.

“This (HDC) matter has been a fairly complex matter. Cabinet approved a framework agreement which is a non-binding, non-detailed agreement, meaning you are free to go in that direction. There are interpretations by some people as to what that means.”

“HDC proceeded to the point of a contract.”

He said by the time Cabinet discovered a problem, they gave the necessary oversight and monitoring which Cabinet cannot relinquish.

“Having done that, for many reasons including a review of its own position, Cabinet decided this should not go forward and we should start over.

“That is not anything for us to be ashamed of or to be worried about. The system has worked.” Rowley said Cabinet had not ignored queries raised.

The PM said Cabinet was unhappy with some aspects of the contract, including a conflict between the plan to sell apartments (which people may not be able to afford) and Cabinet’s desire to build rental units. He also lamented the old deal would have required the HDC to get help from several ministries and may have been too accommodating to a foreign entity.

Rowley said the project would be re-tendered and hopefully be more accommodating to local contractors and “significant local participation.”

He said some public-private partnerships were taking too long, but now they know what they are dealing with. Saying the price-tag may be less than US$72 million, he said local contractors are claiming they can build it cheaper than Gezhouba.

WTMC I really seeing here! :shock:
This waste of break about to squander 43 million dollars just on the cancellation alone and talking MCery about "the system has worked"? I always knew this moron, and his cabinet full of morons were shameless, but now even he admits it. Dummy approved a bobol contract as Housing Minister, and now trying to play saviour?
The most incompetent, shameless and corrupt admin we have ever had in T&T, is JUHN Scarfy and his thieving stink bunch. Yet his enablers like Tokesy, Red Kamla Bag, elitecorolla, Zitty, wing and one eye will try to spin even this humongous piece of utter fackery.

Rowley said the project would be re-tendered and hopefully be more accommodating to local contractors and “significant local participation.”

He said some public-private partnerships were taking too long, but now they know what they are dealing with. Saying the price-tag may be less than US$72 million, he said local contractors are claiming they can build it cheaper than Gezhouba.

WTMC I really seeing here! :shock:
This waste of break about to squander 43 million dollars just on the cancellation alone and talking MCery about "the system has worked"? I always knew this moron, and his cabinet full of morons were shameless, but now even he admits it. Dummy approved a bobol contract as Housing Minister, and now trying to play saviour?
The most incompetent, shameless and corrupt admin we have ever had in T&T, is JUHN Scarfy and his thieving stink bunch. Yet his enablers like Tokesy, Red Kamla Bag, elitecorolla, Zitty, wing and one eye will try to spin even this humongous piece of utter fackery.


Redman care to explain this?

Explain? No. Spin? Yes

UNC pounds PM, PNM in platform picong
Richardson Dhalai

POLITICAL platforms present politicians with an opportunity to tackle national issues with a certain amount of seriousness and humour.And this was on full display at the UNC’s pavement report at the New Grant government primary school, Hindustan on Wednesday evening as opposition members launched a frontal assault on the PNM Administration using humour and dance to get supporters into a fighting mood.It started innocuously enough when Naparima MP Rodney Charles, who is known for his seriousness in Parliament said he wanted to speak about the Prime Minister’s foreign policy. “Our foreign policy simply is to cuss everybody in sight, we have a bad john prime minister. So first he cuss the US Ambassador.”

He then mimics Dr Rowley when he said, “I take umbrage to what the US ambassador said.”“That was after he cuss up the secretary general of the OAS, and now is the turn to cuss the British government all the while he dancing with he bestie (Nicolas) Maduro in a conga line.” Charles then swayed his shoulders in an imaginary conga line.

“Imagine Keith Rowley, accusing the British government of sending coded messages via the BBC to disrupt world peace in general and good Keith Rowley governance in TT in particular.” “I would not be surprised if he has not sent a letter by registered mail to her majesty stressing that if his concerns were not met he would impose trade sanctions on the UK and or leave the commonwealth.” He said the TT coast guard may also be preparing to invade the British Isles as Rowley’s behaviour suggests that he is “a big fowl.”

Then, suddenly serious, Charles said the government should instead focus on placing a trade mission in Georgetown Guyana as that country is poised to become the “energy capital of the CARICOM. But we not there, we seeing about everybody business and cussing.”

Then it was the turn of deputy political leader Jearlean John, when describing Rowley, used an impromptu reggae dance to show what the PM really thought about TT.

“Two weeks ago Rowley wining in the Hyatt, he eh care if it have no drugs in the hospital because he going hay, hay, hay… hay pock away.” John then swayed to the music, her arms flailing as she repeated, “hay, hay, hay….hay pock away.”

“He eh care if it have no teachers in the school and no doctors in the hospital, or no drugs in the hospital…. you pock away TT.” (Hey pocky away is a song performed by ‘the Meters.)

Supporters erupted with laughter as she also compared the cancelled HDC/ China Gezhouba Group International Engineering Company contract as being government being caught in “In flagrante delicto” or with their pants down while unable to explain who authorised the contract.
