It's Your Write
Vote a victory for
light over darkness
I have personally sent congratulations to Balisier
House on their victory, although they know and we
know it was not of their doing, that if the vote was
not split they would have lost just as badly as they did
in July 2010, and in some municipalities, worse.
That is instructive for everyone. We move on.
The main lesson of this election seems to be the
people don't care for nasty politicking and more were
turned off by it than were turned on. That and the un-
derscoring of the truth that big-money campaigns are
For me, I am elated and have been smiling ever
since the votes began to be counted. My mission was
always the complete annihilation of the green bandit
party and the further exposing of the bandit crew, and
I count today a complete victory for light over dark-
ness and good over evil.
Now that the lie of this "action man" has been laid
bare for all to see it is only a matter of time before all
who were temporarily distracted will come back home
to the Partnership in preparation for 2015.
And a united People's Partnership will beat the
PNM very, very badly again.
Well done T&T, I am proud of you.
Next stop St Joseph, where the weather forecast
calls for wetting after wetting after wetting.

ILP brought it on themselves
The rain had very little to do with the poor voter
turnout. The persons who voted, were going out there
to vote, come rain or come shine. The introduction of
the goat onstage wearing a Partnership's yellow jer-
sey said that they had nothing left to offer the elec-
torate but more picong. The ILP brought onto
themselves "wetting after wetting after wetting."
The leader of the ILP must now admit that he is
perhaps viewed as the chief cook and bottle washer of
his party and all other members are mere window
dressing. The unexpected, almost total rejection of the
ILP says "Is Jack dey fraid."
The millions spent by the Partnership and the ILP
on extolling non-existant gains (including the box
drains) made me consider putting any personal cash
savings into a shoe box under my bed. Who else
money dey spending but yours and mine?
Many would say that the electorate has returned to
racial voting. Not so. The electorate is asking for more
proof that it is financially safe, that there will be a
more equitable piece of the pie for all, before jumping
from the frying pan into the fire.
In true blue Trini political style, it remains signifi-
cantly important that we ride with the party that can
win King of the Bands, Queen of the Bands, Band of
the Year and the People's Choice.
Show us the drawings for 2014 and 2015.
The PM said she did not lose. She did not win either.
It is like saying the glass is half full not half empty.
The novelty of a female leader is no more. She is no
Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir or Indira Gandhi.
The COP is dead, cremated and ashes dispersed in
the Gulf of Paria. The ILP is strong only in Chaguanas.
All dog bad in their yard. They are a new party and can

ernment elections. Forget about holding on to seats.

The COP has now gone from hero to zero in a few
months. Emotions were flared when any reference
was made to COP as a dead horse or a dying party,
but look at the results.
Mr Ramadhar, your principles are strong and your
vision is clear but lip service and actual service differ. I
write this as a south man who is privileged to live in
St Augustine for ten months. A few months ago I
wrote a letter praising you. It was in the newspaper
with the headline Prakash under Pressure. I high-
lighted all your great work for the St Augustine con-
stituents although the newspaper edited it by mainly
cutting what you did help with. I am still in St Augus-
tine and I would like you to live up to the praise you
get from us here.
Sir, your party is a hard-working party and an im-
portant organ and driving force of the government, so
please buck up! Time to deliver!
Alvin K Daniel,
Iam making a public and urgent
appeal to the Chaguaramas
Development Authority, Coast
Guard or Environmental Manage-
ment Authority to prohibit party
goers from entering Chacachacare.
I visited the island last weekend
and I was disgusted by the behav-
iour of some of the visitors.
Upon arrival one is greeted with
mounds of trash left behind by boat
cruises. Scores of plastic bottles can
be seen on the beach along with
disposable plates, cups and cigarette
The music coming from the boats
was very loud, creating noise pollu-
tion on the island.
Revellers were seen dropping their
litter on the shore of La Tinta bay
with no consideration to the envi-
ronment or others.
While many visitors cleaned up
after themselves and used the bins,
their efforts seemed wasted as the
bins were overflowing, a clear indi-
cation that they are not emptied
Come on people, do better than
that! If we want Chacachacare to
remain an attractive destination for
visitors, we need better rules and
regulations for the usage of the
island. The continued abuse of the
island by party goers cannot contin-

Thanks for splitting
Thank you, Uncle Jack, for allowing the
votes to be split in favour of the PNM. I
am from the San Fernando area and we
have been represented well by the COP
over the past three years because, after
years of neglect from the PNM, our
flooding problems and bad roads were fi-
nally fixed. In the past three years High
Street has not had any flooding incident
like when the PNM was in charge of the
San Fernando Corporation.
What has Mr Warner or the ILP done
for any other constituent but those of
Chaguanas west? And he didn't even win
his whole corporation.
Well boy Jack, you did it! You managed
to not win a single corporation but let
PNM walk back into office. Thanks for
splitting the vote!
