I am amused and perhaps perplexed at the extent to which some UNC activists will go to defend and promote the “achievements” of their beloved serial loser leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

A recent newspaper report states that UNC activists claim that under Kamla’s leadership the UNC won more votes in the recent general election as a party on its own and without ties to other parties than the UNC did in 2015 when it was a part of the People’s Partnership coalition.

As if the above fanatical and senseless post did not border on the fringes of lunacy, the activists incredulously slipped in, for good measure, Kamla’s overwhelming victories in internal elections over UNC founder Basdeo Panday, former first youth officer and original member of the UNC Roodal Moonilal and lastly the well-loved Christine Newallo Hosein.

Well hooray to these activists for allowing members to know of these most fascinating statistics. I guess they may have been guided in their expose by some political analysts who crunched the numbers and revealed that the UNC had gotten more votes than the PNM in Trinidad.

It may not be too long again for this fringe group to call upon the President to appoint Kamla Persad-Bissessar as Prime Minister of T&T.

One may well blame the Covid-19 pandemic for the UNC activists with their contrived and useless statistics, for not getting the news that Dr Keith Rowley is the Prime Minister of T&T.
