Trinidad and Tobago’s electorate dumped a Project Manager two years ago. Now, it arguably has a Pseudo Mechanic.
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar added salt to the wounds of motorists, reeling over a 44 percent increase in premium gas prices, by suggesting that they use super instead.
“I am (…) advised that some people use premium but they do not have to,” the PM told the Trinidad Express by phone.
The PM’s trademark “I was advised…” opening now heads a queue of cringe-inspiring introductions that include: “With all due respect…” “Don’t take this the wrong way…” “I wasn’t going to say anything but…”
Mr Live Wire hopes that Persad-Bissessar’s car-care tips do not go down as well as Marie Antoinette’s dietary advice during the French Revolution. At least cakes are yummy.
