I wish to commend your newspaper for its lead article last week titled “Rebellion in the UNC” as well as for the follow-up article on Page 3 written by your Peter Green. It is so very true.
I live at Lange Park in Chaguanas and you missed out on one point. Ask the UNC and moreso Mayor Gopaul Boodhan how come his niece, Debbie Gopaul, has replaced the hard working Councillor from my district Andell Paramsook. This is UNC nepotism at its worst. And while you are at it ask Barry Shiva Padarath who seems to be Ms Persad-Bissessar’s right hand man how many persons in the Princes Town area he has promised that he will make Aldermen and what are the criteria for their acceptance. Who is their husband? I feel sickened when I think of what the UNC has become today as against what it used to be under men like Basdeo Paday, Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj, Trevor Sudama, Kelvin Ramnath and even your own Jack Warner.
Last Sunday the UNC could not even get 5000 people to fill up the Couva South constituency car park while the PNM had over 15,000 persons bursting at the seams at the Queen’s Park Savannah. The UNC speakers at the platform are the worst I have ever heard and, in particular Saddam Hosein, who I hear is tipped to be the UNC candidate for Barataria/San Juan. I really wish he goes up there and get the licking of his life. He might be a Saddam but he is no Fuad.
I am not a PNM and my disgust with the present UNC has left me no choice but to sit out this election with the hope that following the predictable results hope will triumph over my present political despair.
A Fed-Up UNC
