These photos of a certain Government Minister, commonly known as Bhaji to the grassroots, were taken before and after the Cabinet meeting yesterday. It only took a few minutes of moderate heat for the minister to show the population who is the boss.
The citizens of Trinidad and Tobago have been hounding the Government down for years to provide swift justice but today, in Parliament, the Minister of Public Administration, on two occasions, clearly said the Government aims to provide citizens with Swiffer justice. The Minister, an educated man who worships Chinese tile floors the Prime Minister walks on, left citizens puzzled as he did not say how a device which cleans up to 50% more dirt, dust, and cat hair than a broom will improve the criminal justice system.
When they out for you, they out for you and if you happen to be named Minister Gary Hunt, they out for you even more. Yesterday a reporter asked the Minister Hunt if TT$2 million was too much to pay for the big Trinidad and Tobago flag at the Hasely Crawford Stadium and The Minister was politically clever to say if the flag cost around 2 million TT$ then that was a small price to pay for National Pride (not to be confused with Country Pride, which is a brand of flour).
The difference between Gary Hunt and the member of the media who asked Mr. Hunt the question is that, as a Government Minister, he is privy to information the public has no access to, such as the cost of national pride and salaries at UDECOTT. But Mr. Hunt misunderstood the question and the reporter did not ask about the cost of national pride, but the cost of the flag – two different things the last time I checked. Were the flag bids rigged? Was UDECOTT brought in to not only ensure unheard of transparency, but also to ensure we bought the best flag and hired the best flag installation contractor possible at the best price known to man? All the reporter was asking from Mr. Hunt was reassurance that when the public sees the giant flag flapping in the wind we will feel no nausea, but a sense of National Pride in where we money gone.
To be honest, I don’t care why PM PM fired his Rottweiler since it makes no difference to the Chinese. PM PM suggested the dog got bad, lost his loyalty and became a bully. PM PM cried that for 12 years he had to put up with abusive bullying from his once loyal canine that had developed a nice shiny coat and deadly growl. I thought he was talking about his wife.
I suppose everybody has a breaking point and PM PM said his point came last year just after the Roth got away and allegedly hurled bullying language against some of PM PM’s dear friends and best performers. These loyalists became terrified of the potentially rabid dog bite and ran to PM PM with the news of the Roth’s latest insults. On hearing the news, PM PM said he acted swiftly and put the deadly dog out of his kennel.
Yesterday, the Roth suggested that PM PM, a teetotaler and ballroom dancer, was drunk and he, the Roth, wanted to avoid what PM PM was drinking, but PM PM, in one of the quickest and cleverest comebacks in Parliament’s history, said it was the Good Book he was drunk on. Cheers and admiration rang out from the adoring crowd and Opposition members, especially from one non-performing Minister sitting behind PM PM known as the 52-inch Wide Screen. Non-performers tend to cheer too much.
PM PM concluded the Opposition and opponents wanted to get his government and that is why they were making up things about his boy from the Hart land. He even suggested a jilted lover had a part to play in this plot to overthrow the country’s progress. Unfortunately, PM PM didn’t say why the vagabonds wanted to do such a shameful thing. Maybe, hate, envy, greed or the new property tax, he didn’t say. What PM PM did with his latest diatribe against his enemies in Parliament was to cement his place at the top until 2020 once his hart, kidney, suspected intelligence and comeback skills hold out.
