Once again the masses (33 of them) have spoken, and they've chosen PNM nemesis Dr Keith Rowley to be the next PM if there's a problem with Mr Manning returning to Trinidad from Cuba (if you know what we mean).
24 persons (72%) voted for Dr Rowley, 5 persons or 15% for Kamla Persad-Bissessar, 3 persons or 9% voted for none of the above, 1 person or 3% voted for Basdeo Panday, and neither Karen Nunez-Tesheira, Conrad Enill nor Dr Lenny Saith garnered any votes from anyone (they certainly need to develop their media contacts).
Well there's a story here if ever we've seen one, so go out and sharpen your pencils for what's certainly going to be an interesting few months ahead on the political front.
BTW, Miss Manradge of TV6, was it really necessary to tell us at 6am on Thursday that Mr Manning "...is said to be resting at this time"? Did you expect him to be jogging on the grounds of the hospital 24 hours after major surgery?
