Politics create weird bedfellows. Case in point, feral Frank DaSilva and intellectual snob Jomo Thomas are now allies. Thirst for power has aligned these two miscreants who have been circling PM Ralph Gonsalves hungrily waiting for a power grab opportunity.
Unfortunately for both, they cannot convince Vincentians with their illogical gibberish, so they rely on conspiracy theories, false statements and politically charged commentary to rile up the people, who were recently traumatized by the volcanic eruption on top of dengue and Covid outbreaks.
Jomo has declared himself a vaccine expert while Frank continues to stir the pot of discontent.
Opposition Leader Friday, in the absence of his own intellect has courted rabid beasts like those infamous Kings: Adriana, Kenson and Luzette.
Luzette shouldn’t even be in the country, but I won’t digress.
With a supporting cast of misfits like Fitz Bramble, brutish Israel Bruce, the incoherent Nigel Stephenson, and empty headed wanna be feminists like Zita parading their ignorance for all to see. We can clearly see how political theatre has devolved into a shit show of competing egos in the absence of well thought out policies.
Now Fitz appeared from Canada last year, where he kinda functioned as Economic Development Coordinator for the city of Estevan. I say kinda, because I saw the video of his pathetic version of Black Lives Matter protest. He spent his time ignoring black citizens in a weak appeal to placate and pacify white Canadians. But he expects to talk to black Vincentians from a superior place. Please, wheel and come again Bramble.
Like Friday, he is not exactly qualified to serve in parliament. However, our magnanimous PM let him slip through, despite Snake in Chief, Frank DaSilva’s efforts to bring this to the fore. Strange, ain’t it?
Equally strange is the idea that Bruce Israel is joining the calls for Ashelle’s removal from parliament. By his own logic, he shouldn’t be there either. Israel was the dude who allegedly assaulted a man at a bar for calling him ugly. I personally see nothing wrong with that statement, since his appearance bolsters the argument that he is unrefined and borders on the uncouth. But hey, what do I know?
Nigel Stephenson continually solidifies his reputation as a misogynoir and brute with every incoherent, barely comprehensible utterance that liberally puts forth from his mouth.
Zita is the window dressing for feminism cheering them on. What feminist allows bitter old men like Loser-In-Chief Eustace – who incidentally is the losingest opposition leader in regional history – tell her not to uphold an oath to serve the people of SVG? Her particular brand of feminism is quite distasteful to thinking black women who are ready for a change.
Like Ashelle, she was a waste of a female body in the house.
On the sidelines, cheering them on are the infamous Kings of confusion: Luzette, Adriana and Kenson.
Luzette is a non Vincentian grifter who goes from country to country, looking for a place to house her malintent. NDP has embraced this embarrassment of a woman as their Rosa Parks. The insanity is real.
Adriana King continues to relentlessly spew hate against the government and it’s institutions, including the one that keeps her gainfully employed. Her disrespect is notorious. She ought to be removed for her frequent calls for civil disobedience. Our nations children should not be subjected to such an instrument of hate.
It was with great pleasure that I observed Kenson King receive a long overdue slap in his face. Honestly, I did rewind several times. His incessant ranting and ravings were getting on my nerves. Hopefully the next slap will send him off into the stratosphere of irrelevance, where he belongs.
It is way past time to enforce the laws of SVG to put these characters in check.
Dishonorable Minister Friday – the so-called Statesman who has yet to state his case to the Vincentian body politic about why he should be PM. He has proven over and over again that he is incapable of applying the laws of SVG to the issues in SVG. Preferring to helplessly bleat, bitch and moan to regional and international bodies about issues that can easily be addressed in parliament, by any member who cares enough about due process. His weakness has become a liability to the entire nation.
I say get rid of this entire cast of unsavory characters from the landscape of Vincentian politics. Introduce them to the heavy hand of the law. PM can no longer afford to show forbearance to these unruly people.
