The Prime Minister is responsible for this. She even glibly revealed how she was appointed to that position. Kamla is either oblivious to the fact that this woman is insane or she actively rewarded it.

Made it to 20 minutes.

Was shocked that
 a) she admitted to using subliminal messages to promote Kamla. Are lecturers allowed in promote political parties?

b) What qualifications did she have to be a Minister of Health? Surely your supposed to use your M.P.s, particularly for key positions. Otherwise, why would you vote for the party?

That part about being given the Min of Health job was one of the first OMG moments I had watching that.  The woman basically said that the only reason she was chosen was because she Kamla's teacher in UWI.......

Now when this woman was first appointed I remember thinking eh??  What??  Who she??  Where she come from??  Now I understand why I'd never heard of her anywhere in the medical fraternity.....she eh know one damn thing bout health.......now think about the rest of Kamla's cabinet and wonder what de hell going on??

Ganga Singh and Hurricane George were two other appointments that made me go hhhhhhhmmmmmm.........a real pick up side.....we really in a mess yes.....

LOL, I was thinking I'm sure that's the slogan on the coat of arms and I didn't realise it was part of the National Anthem!!

Can't believe this lady is paid a fortune to be an ambassador. Just shows how people are given jobs just because they are friends.

After a few minutes, I could not watch any more. It was too embarrassing. I knew that the rambling and incoherence at the beginning of her address would only get progressively worse. I am seriously beginning to question her sanity. Her delivery was not lucid.

Why are her sentences not linking together? She starts off talking about one thing then goes to another in the same breath. Does she have a mental problem? Serious talk.

I don't know this lady, but, to me, she looks a lot younger than Kamla. If so, how could she educate her  ???

I'm thinking MBA. She said it herself, the opposition leader who at the time was one of her students.

Ex-minister takes heat over video lecture
Originally printed at http://www.trinidadexpress.com/news/Ex-minister_takes_heat_over_video_lecture-164161976.html

By Gyasi Gonzales gyasi.gonzales@trinidadexpress.com
July 28, 2012
FORMER health minister Therese Baptiste-Cornelis, now the country's ambassador to the United Nations in Switzerland, has been slammed on social media networking site Facebook and BlackBerry Messenger, following a lecture on cultural diplomacy she presented in Geneva in June.

The video, which shows Baptiste-Cornelis's speech, was uploaded to YouTube on June 28 and began spreading to Facebook over the past two days.

The Sunday Express viewed the video presentation, and although Baptiste-Cornelis addresses the subject of cultural diplomacy, throughout her 30-minute presentation, she also spoke at length about her stint as health minister, how she got the job as health minister and about how she met her husband on the Internet as well.

About her one-year stint as minister of health, she said, "I caused chaos. I told doctors they were making mistakes. They hated the fact that I pointed out they were making mistakes. They pleaded for me to get out, so I agreed with them in that plea, so I gave them even more stress so that they would plea louder, and then I was replaced by the MP (Dr Fuad Khan) who I was the campaign manager for in the elections. He's a doctor so he took over."

She did not receive many "likes" on Facebook for her presentation, which was described as rambling and embarrassing.

Some of the comments included:

"Have you ever seen a diplomat carry themselves with such lack of professionalism, diplomacy is all about how you appear to the outside world, how you represent your country. I am upset because the way she behaved does not represent the Trinidad and Tobago I know, the Trinidad and Tobago I'm working to help build. This is a disgrace, and I'm happy that people can recognise that. Accountability. That's the order of the day."

Another comment: "This is what happens when people just get appointed to diplomatic positions simply as a means of getting rid of them from active politics...."

Other viewers were a bit more understanding.

One wrote, "Forget being an ambassador and all that... As an educated female, she was disappointing to listen to. She clearly forgot what it takes to deliver a successful speech! She had the structure but lacked in delivery.... She had too much of her personal baggage in there.

The Sunday Express yesterday attempted to get a comment about the video, which has almost 3,000 views so far, but Foreign Affairs Minister Dr Suruj Rambachan could not be immediately reached last night.

I agree with you. She has to be put on medication immediately and should not be unleashed on an unsuspecting audience.

I only two minutes in and I had to stop fuss it cringeworthy. I feel like I watching the Saw movie where you want to see the plot progress but yuh donít want to see the full gory details.

I wastrying to figure out what she is ambassador to then I realise is the same lod-mouth clown who was telling people to shut-up a couple years ago.

They really donít value these Ambassodorial appointments. For the US they appoint a fella who was in school same time as me. No qualifications other than the fact that his family is party insiders.
