Kamla’s cold war

Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has spent the past 72 hours afflicted by an unusual strain of the cold.

Persad-Bissessar apparently shivers at the mere thought of attending any function that might have reporters present, such as Cabinet or Shouter Baptist Day celebrations.

Yet, the Prime Minister had no problem donning a hard hat and posing for photographs during the nationwide blackout in the wee hours of Friday morning.

One-way communication is fine too as Persad-Bissessar pleaded for time from the local public this afternoon with a press release that said the Trinidad and Tobago government would sit on its hands until Washington tells a Head of State what she should do about her own Minister.

That makes the Prime Minister’s symptoms so far: nervous in public places, diminished sense of responsibility, inaction, aversion to long distance phone calls, inability to audibly to say “Jack Warner” let alone call her National Security Minister in for crisis talks and disconnection from reality, which makes her believe that wearing a hardhat is somehow helping our still unexplained electricity problems and also makes her unable to accept that everyone knows a case of journal-itis when they see it.

Not since disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong blamed cancer for years of doping, cheating and bullying has a disease felt so shamelessly abused and exploited by a supposed victim.

Mr Live Wire has been unreliably informed that the cold has dispatched a pre-action protocol letter for libel to the Office of the Prime Minister. And it is being represented by Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj.
