D/Martin grateful for small mercies

The People’s Partnership yesterday distributed cheques ranging in value from $7,000 to $30,000 to over 100 Diego Martin families affected by last month’s flood.

The pay-out totaled $1.8 million or roughly $200,000 less than the State paid Machel Montano to sing “Advantage” last year.

“I know there is no way this can satisfy your needs,” Housing Minister Roodal Moonilal told the families, “but it can help.”

One grateful flood victim kissed the ground at Moonilal’s feet. Wired868 can confirm that it was not Opposition Leader Keith Rowley.
