The Queen is Coming, No More Flooding!!


The Queen will be visiting Port of Spain and hoping not to have to battle with flood waters like a regular Citizen

The Queen will be visiting Port of Spain in November and hoping not to have to battle with flood waters like a regular Citizen

The Queen is coming, no more flooding!! Hip Hip Hooray!!

For years, neither bullying by PM PM nor cars covered by flood waters could get the Minister of Works and Concrete Barriers to clean the drains of Port of Spain.  It was almost as if The Minister would look down from his Ivory Tower and take perverse delight in seeing citizens pull up their skirts to cross the flooded roads.

But when the Minister heard on the BBC that Queen Elizabeth II was coming to Port of Spain and fearing his ass would be highlighted in the international press, he announced how, after years of looking, his Ministry suddenly found out what was blocking the drains of Port of Spain and it would be cleaned before the Queen arrives.  The Minister took the opportunity in a recent press conference to let citizens know he was doing it all for the The Queen.

  1. I love this post title. And I believe you could get the job of town crier with this snazzy cry 🙂 Just walk with yuh tall boots in case the plan doh work and it flood while you out in the streets.

  2. That fear of getting their asses highlighted in the international press works on politicians everytime. I don’t think the wrinkled old lady herself has anything to do with it.:-)
