After spending months in the back pocket of Prime Minister Manning (probably next to a dried up, unused condom pack), the country’s general election day has finally be announced as November 5th. About fucking time; I half expected that it would have been next year, but I’m glad it is sooner than that.
The question now is, who is going to win. I am leaning to the COP (also know as ‘the congress’), which, as the new party can hopefully offer something new. New isn’t necessarily better, however, given the other choices – PNM and UNC – I will take my chances.
My only peeve with COP is that they keep preaching about ‘new politics’, however, they are using the same old tactics – mud slinging. The opposition parties only giving one reason to vote for them – to get the PNM out – and as such just attacking them on every little fucking thing. What difference will you make? What are your policies? What are your opinions on the current issues of security, health and education?
Answer those questions and then we will have a clear race.
