Express gives Rowley’s backdoor the treatment

Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley did not know about his backdoor until very recently. Presumably, neither did the Trinidad Express. But reporter Renuka Singh latched on to Rowley’s rear with the sort of relish not seen in these parts since US-based R&B star Akon grabbed hold of an underage girl at Zen.

Rowley’s backdoor was, in Singh’s words, penetrated, unknown to him, in September 2012. Bizarrely, that was not even the strangest thing to happen to the Opposition Leader last year. The prowler allegedly left with valuables belonging to the PNM chief.

Stoic as ever, Rowley told the Express he was not “overly concerned” by the intrusion but admitted that he “did suffer a particular loss.”

Wired868 cannot confirm whether former Prime Minister Patrick Manning sneaks into Balisier House on weeknights to pretend he is still the “Father of the Nation.” Or if Singh is working on her first novel, “Fifty Shades of PNM.”
