Duke: I want no part of allyuh

KEINO SWAMBER


Political Leader of the Progressive Democratic Patriots (PDP) and Tobago East candidate Watson Duke has cancelled the planned meeting with One Tobago Voice (OTV) co-founders Christlyn Moore of Tobago Forwards, Ashworth Jack of the Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP) and The Platform of Truth (TPT) led by Hochoy Charles.

One week ago, Duke wrote the party requesting a meeting to discuss how the OTV and the PDP could fight as one against the PNM.

However, Duke is now saying he wants no part of the OTV team.

“You don’t put new wine in old wine skins. I want no part of allyuh. I was trying to work with allyuh but I recognise allyuh bad mind, allyuh envious, allyuh wicked. You all are a bunch of backstabbers and, apart from that, you all are a bunch of losers.”

In an open letter to Duke, Moore said it is regrettable that the teams have not been able to collaborate in the interest of Tobago’s people.

“While I understand that manipulation and misstatement may be the tools of many politicians, it was regrettable to count you in that number.”

She admitted that she has had disappointing moments with Duke previously.

“You announced to the national public in a previous election cycle, that you were in fact a supporter of the ruling PNM. I have managed to forgive this matter, though it is difficult to forget.

“You met with me in the middle of the 2016 THA election to agree on a compromise position re: candidates, and your utterances were so outrageous and egomaniacal that it became clear that your main reason for meeting was to grand-charge. As an aide-memoire, that was the meeting where you insisted that your party was assured to win at least eight of the THA seats.”

Moore said Duke also agreed to a merger with the Tobago Forwards, under the PDP banner, at a meeting with her in 2019, but thereafter could not be found to implement any of the agreed terms of the merger.

“You failed to respond to any correspondence regarding the merger, and instead articulated in the public space that your party had instructed you not to merge.

"You fixed a meeting with OTV for July 10, 2020 where the date and time was agreed by your party’s deputy political leader Farley Augustine and the venue suggested by him, only to have your lady deputy political leader Faith BYisrael throw a tantrum about not being a part of the decision making on the venue.

“You have introduced at least three stories in the media, and three different ones with OTV leadership about why you requested a meeting with OTV, and why you eventually aborted that meeting. Keeping a story straight is not your strong suit, I have come to learn – I suggest you work on that matter before taking any oaths.”

Moore said she thinks she has a better record than Duke in keeping undertakings.

“I will wish you the best. While I have not been able to trust you, perhaps the electorate will see what I have not been able to discern and, in so doing, install you as the representative for Tobago East. It will certainly be a hard choice facing our people, but they are experienced in separating the wheat from the chaff. May the force be with you and whatever the outcome Vox Populi, Vox Dei.” Moore said she would respond to all attacks directed towards her by Duke.

“I have held my tongue because a public spat between people who are seeking to reach a collaborative consensus is not productive, but I have to admit that it has been a failed endeavour, and my collaborative efforts with you, spanning the last seven years, are now at an end.”

DeeksI will keep my fingers crossed for this man who I think is more Trini than me,I hope his attitude has changed and less of the hot head.TW mirrors the attitude of people from the North East,the people come from very deprived parts and maybe TW is one with such a background.They all seem to have a fighting spirit and even sound like they want to fight when they speak.When I was studying in Manchester I heard one of the students talking,I said are you from Newcastle,his reply,"like f**k I'm not i'm from Carlisle",the thing is Carlisle is a stones throw from Newcastle.Manchester people call them "nutters".One question did you agree with TW as our coach.

Breds, YES! I think he has as much right as any Trini to coach the team. He lives in TT. He started from the ground floor. He was in the trenches with Jabloteh. He did a good job. He could have packed up and go back Hengland. He stayed and dealt with TT bakanal. TT has hired a number of coaches since he is here. Some foreign, some local. Some were good, and some were bad. Real bad. I think he should be given the chance. But leh we don't talk too fast because this contract business might screw up everything.

Looked like he learn the Bachanal better than We, and fellow mentor (Peter Miller) guided him well. Ka-Ching.

Let’s here from Fenwick defenders(at home and here) before judgement is passed. After all, I think it was only one individual on the selection committee opposed that selection. Though I feel we get hoodwinked one more time. Them fellas seem to have Trini down to a T, and now and T.

That is a good analysis of him (Para.2) which has spoken to our detriment in National colours. Maybe he needs to slow down the pace a bit to increase/focus on increasing control and possession. He's still young, i'm sure he'll continue to improve.

Well we are a free democratic country- People do have the right to choose whomever they wish to align with.

I just  think that based on the principles of a party and the ethics of leadership it seems like an u fathomable choice to chose a party whose leadership in divisive dysfunctional and  destabilizing.

I would like to know how Candidates who are looking for an opportunity into the political foray decide on who they will align with:

- do you jump at where there is a vacancy ?
Or do you consider a party
S ethics morals and leaderspih within?
However, if one is serious about helping the country, that’s the party that you would have the best chance of changing or attaining leadership, as a political tactician. Not so ? Unfortunately many aspiring and good ppl tend to fall by the wayside when they constantly butt they head on the wall constructed of Bachanal bricks that is TT administration and politricks. Ppl democratically opposing each other, to give the impression they doing something by fighting each other, instead of supporting and pulling/pushing together. Best wish any newcomers best wishes and hope some    Diety of their choosing guide them to be one day successful, for all TTians sake. Amen, Awomen, Inshallah or whatever is appropriate.

maxg, tell me where you have the perfect democracy? Canada ? Australia? Denmark, Sweden.  In my years of observing democracy, the "best" political system, I have seen a double edged sword. People are given the choice of associating with who they feel would deliver goods and services for their daily living. Yet people get chastised and hated for which party they join.

 Democracy is geared for antagonism. It was not intended to be that way, but it ended up being that way from the get go. When there is campaigning, the different parties are supposed to campaign on the issues, facts and what are the goals for the country. When you go to a meeting, the innuendos, exaggerations, boasting and demonizing are par for the course. Kamla call Rowley a dictator. He call she a  traitor. When the the elections over do you really expect who ever lose to put aside their differences and work with the ruling party. Almost never. It goes both ways. Like when Mitch McConnel told Barak, "our goal is to make you a one term president". This is coming from a man who is in the party of Lincoln, in the the land of the bastion of democracy. You thing the Democrats enjoy working with Trump? They will do everything in their power to get his arse out.

If allyuh think the parties should working hand in hand cumbayah, allyuh on crack. We might as well have a one party system.
I agree with all you say, except I don't know why little we can't have a one people system. No we stuck on the crab in barrel system, providing distraction and entertainment for most of the people, and economic control to a certain few, who already have figured out our particular democratic style. Stronger ppl getting concious doh. Maybe young ppl like Nakhid and other traveled  ppl can stick it out.
I wouldn't have made a good politician, so I didn't even try. However, Please don't ever use America as a example of the bastion of democracy doh. Just look at where they are at present, due to their past, and a always unknown and prejudiced future.  Democracy was meant for all the people, not a particular segment of the populationm  at a particular time. I wouldn't comment further on a Country I have no affiliations in any way with. You may as you live there.

I don't mind the investigative reporting but where was this from Sports Max over the last 2-3 years?
it wasn’t yet the fullness of time. Yet tbh, either Wallace, Ramesh or both set us up with false hope. I want to believe Wallace is a plant, cause he can’t be so naive. But like the man with the real clout is Ramesh. Or is it, T&T football is just entertainment programming for Heaven and Hell. Like mass and bachanal  is in we DNA.

Wallace doh realize BLM is for ourselves to respect too, not just for different races. I lost confidence right dey. Taking responsibility and blame might show yuh is a man, maybe

What BLM has to do with this?
BLM has to do with everything. It not just about equality and lack of  respectful treatment, and being alive. It's also about how we live. We cannot and should not be taken advantage of by Local or Foreign bodies.  Our young ppl, especially Black people (this includes both Afro and Indo Trini) should not only be just dependent on a food but they should be taught proper management,integrity, unity and of course comportment and behaviour. Someone don't put a paper in front of you and you sign. Someone don't give you moneys and you sell out your brother. Someone don't say take, hold this bauble and forget your neighbour and you hold. We need leaders to take hold and teach the next, how to keep our soul.
 Is Bachanal after bachanal the only things we can pass down. Black Lives and the way we live now and in the future must matter to us too. Our leaders today must recognize they have a responsibility to and for our leaders and followers of tomorrow. Mistakes like that, if true, have in the past and will always cost us dearly one way or another in the future. Who will be the next president and how will all this be resolved. It;'s not impossible but sets up a greater chance of failure, and regression back to some extrinsic dependent body (Massa).
Just a thought. Hope You see my point.

maxg, your point is well taken. I agree. But I don't think BLM  has anything to do with this issue on hand. When people start adding all these greviances to  BLM, it waters down the serious issues at hand.With football, we doh dead if Fifa appoints a NC. With the US police and Black men, the score is always Black Man zero, police 1.

When it comes to football we must have the most unfortunate and surprised ppl on the planet. Everybody always finding something that turns out to be unfortunate and surprising. The damn thing is, correctly so. Ppl who supposed to be in the know always seem to be left out, and the media gets it before them and then we spend a couple weeks dealing with that controversy, until the next surprising, unfortunate revelation.      smh

You know if Wallace and company had bye pass Fenwick, you would have heard all kind of talk that TTFA bias against the man because he is of a different skin color, etc, etc. Terry is a Trini, not by birth. He has lived and coached here for a while. Where else he going to get a national team coaching job? He has waited his turn, and he finally got it. Look at all the coaches who got the chances to coach TT since 2006. Saint fait and Otto Pfister came out of  the blue and they both stunk. We had Reiberger, Maturana, Latas, Fevrier,, Hart, Lawrence. Why not TF? Because he white? All think TTFA getting a big name coach for anything less. Tell me who allyuh would have chosen to coach the team?
Deeks. If  Fenwick didn't take the JOB because they had NO MONEY to pay Fenwick.  They won't have by passed him. They had NO MONEY to pay NOBODY. The bank account was seized, they inherited a debt of ~50 Million dollars. Even if they got the money to pay Fenwick, and very nice staff, they wouldn't have a penny to run a fete-match. Sponsorship might have just managed to pay the staff. 2 Mill US from Fifa wouldn't cut it. They needed volunteers, at least temporarily. Fenwick could have volunteer knowing the situation, he would be in, but he actually raised the price(or somebody did). He actually requested top dollar. Knowing our present situation, where Top Dollar was coming from ? They couldn't barely raise ah week salary to fight for what is right. Fenwick spend 20 years, 1 or 2 strain wouldn't have made a diffrence. But I'm not surprised that he asked, but how the fack they could say yes. They trying to make more court case ? And on top of that, yuh don't even verify the contract yuh signing. Because is Fennos ? If was Angus now ? Woulda be same everything ?

Deeks. They had a right to tell Fenwick, “Later, with them salary demands”.
There was no money in hand for now and given the debt, for the future. They negotiate a regular, above regular salary, considering National experience, and yuh don’t have a pot to piss in. So how everyone else would be paid, with mangoes. And yuh dun promise Hart and Walkes, Latapy ( maybe even Jack too ) . So we woulda have to hire Randy to beg for we again ? Wallace doh realize BLM is for ourselves to respect too, not just for different races. I lost confidence right dey. Taking responsibility and blame might show yuh is a man, maybe even a good one, but doh mean yuh didn’t do shit. And given all that we have been through as far as football is concerned, it ain’t no end of the world. We have all kinda other issues for that, but yuh go choke yuhself and don’t even know.. to quote a fellow poster “Common man”

Hart had at least many years of Regional Ntl team experience. Then there are all the different level coaches to pay as well, and office staff, and players, in addition to some assholery rumour bout building complex in Arima( feel some deviant make up that too),  and yuh broke and 50 Million in debt ?

Media (social and public) is so misleading. Who accused the man of racism ? If someone doesn’t know and could never experience the significance of something, even if it’s as simple as eating food, how can they accurately comment on starving when they have only gone a day or two without food in their lifetime. I don’t expect Chris or any non-black person who has NOT been part of the problem to immediately grasp what such terms mean. Initially i didn't either. Similarly why ppl feared ‘Black Power’.

So Chris is unaware and uninformed, so his ppl educate him, or they fail too. That is reporting material? Me mum misinformed opinion. We have so much bigotry and racist ppl right there in our country , where every creed and race find an equal place, depending on what job yuh does do and which area yuh grow up in, who is yuh fadda and where yuh study, doh talk bout skin colour and hair. Yet the Media have to report on Me Mum, like he’s the Greatest leader America ever had- Trump.


Trinis, please !

A BLM or George Floyd protest in TT, is not just about policing and against the oppression of Black ppl in the USA. Freedom of minds is not just restricted to one group of ppl.
