I wonder how Manning and Rowley's relationship is today. We all know they did not get along for decades - Rowley tried to run against him several times before the whole UDECOTT fiasco. I suspect they maintain minimal communication - Manning looked better on election day but you can tell movement and his speech is difficult.

So much has been said about Dr Keith Rowley over the course of his political career. Our views of one of Trinidad and Tobago's most experienced politicians have been shaped by what we hear of him from others. But now, for the first time, we have a first hand glimpse into who Dr Keith Rowley is. Take a quick look at Keith Rowley, the man

There is something to admire from where Panday came from to how high of an office he got, literally from being dirt poor. It's an interesting history.

I think most of our PMs came from humble beginnings. I don't know of any who came from very wealthy family. Not trying to disparage any leader who came from family with wealth. The content of character is what matters most.

On this day we mark the passing of a man who has truly achieved the dream of living a fulfilling life.

Dr. Eric Eustace Williams was born on 25 September 1911 and died on 29 March 1981 but his legacy will continue to live on as the Father of our Nation, Trinidad and Tobago. In the memory of Dr. Eric Williams there is hope, pride, discipline, humility, strength, power and purpose. To know this man, is to know that nothing in life is impossible to achieve.

Dr. Eric Williams was leader of the Nation from 1956 - 1981 and this earned him the title "Father of the Nation". He was our country's first Chief Minister, first Premier and first Prime Minister. Dr. Eric Williams was responsible for creating and leading a National Movement of People, credited with the development of Trinidad and Tobago. Dr. Williams presided over our country's movement from Colonialism to Independence and Republican status.

This movement is the Peoples National Movement (PNM) which proudly stands today as the genesis, the current and the future of politics in Trinidad and Tobago. Dr. Eric Williams advocated and nurtured the PNM Constitution which continues to be copied by other political parties across the region. The creation of a Women's League and the grooming of young politicians in the Youth League are some of the components which distinguished the PNM as a model institution. The PNM celebrates its 60th Anniversary this year and continues to grow stronger and more relevant even as so many other political parties have come and gone.

This National Scholar and Caribbean Historian used his intellect to fight against racism and to educate everyone who was willing to listen. Dr. Williams took the opportunity as Prime Minister to emphasize the importance of Education, making it free and available to all citizens and coined the timeless phrase "the future of the Nation is in the children's school bags". His autobiography "Inward Hunger" describes his struggles through his academic pursuits, "I was severely handicapped in my research by my lack of money.... I was turned down everywhere I tried ... and could not ignore the racial factor involved".

Strange coincidence that Eric Williams, George Chambers and Patrick Manning all died at age 69.
