Shocking Toppin: Tobago East MP molests Rowley family… And Charlotteville!

The Trinidad and Tobago Parliament was yesterday the scene of the most spectacularly unsuccessful revenge missions since a one-armed bounty hunter cornered “Tuco” in a bathtub in the classic western movie, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”

“I see hate, I see bitterness, I see acrimony, I see animosity and I see (someone) completely out of control…”

Former Prime Minister Patrick Manning had meant those words to be the epitaph of Diego Martin West MP Dr Keith Rowley, although, in reality, his outburst was the beginning of his own end.

Yesterday evening, though, the parable of “The Raging Bull” was finally laid to rest. Like a suicide bomber who decided to do a test run, Tobago East MP and Minister of the People and Social Development Vernella Alleyne-Toppin blew herself to smithereens while stunned observers watched on, unsure whether to laugh or cry.

In an effort to paint Rowley as a sexual predator, Alleyne-Toppin molested multiple Tobago families who had no business with the Parliament. In trying to put the Opposition Leader into a straightjacket as an angry black man, she herself became unhinged.

This was straight from the “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” with no Madea to lighten the mood.

“One day (in Mason Hall, Tobago) a young girl went to take lunch for her father in a coalspit,” Alleyne-Toppin read in Parliament. “When she got there, her father had gone to change his cow. It’s a true story. She, however, met her father’s best friend and co-worker, alone in the coalspit.

“This young girl was then raped by her father’s best friend. The produc­t today is the aspirant to lofty offic­e…

“Mr Speaker, can you imagine this mother carrying this pain and shame for nine months and the impact it had on the unborn child?

“The child was born and groomed to be arrogant and bombastic… He is the sum of his experiences.”

It might have been the most vile perversion in the Parliament’s history. And Toppin, who did not hide the spiteful intent of her attack as retribution for Rowley naming her in a credit card scandal, is as unfit for those halls as she is for her home town of Charlotteville. The town that she exploited as a backdrop for her unprecedented attack that also targeted Rowley’s mother, an unnamed school girl and her own family name.

And what did Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, the supposed patron saint for all Trinidad and Tobago women, and her People’s Partnership MPs do as “Shocking Toppin” made a mockery of their recent claim to the moral high ground?

They voted for the Tobago East MP to receive an additional 15 minutes of speaking time. And, when Alleyne-Toppin finally ended her sexual assault and, proverbially, lit a cigarette, Persad-Bissessar and her gang thumped their desks and cheered.

They were all accomplices to the metaphorical rape and ridicule of flesh and blood Trinidad and Tobago citizens whom they had never met.

So absurd and intellectually vacuous was Alleyne-Toppin’s scripted attack that, at one point, she posed a question to the Opposition Leader and sat down.

Her colleagues pointed out that the other side was empty as the PNM had walked out more than an hour earlier.

In truth, Parliament was completely empty. The Tobago East MP obscenely stripped the place of any lingering shred of decency that might have survived the reign of ex-Attorney General Anand Ramlogan.

The People’s Partnership dug a hole for the Opposition Leader and then fell into it themselves. Never again can they discuss the “Raging Bull” without rekindling memory of their own spectacularly unsuccessful attempt to terminate a rival.

“When you have to shoot, shoot,” Tuco advised his dying would-be assassin, “don’t talk.”

On the evening of 25 March 2015, Alleyne-Toppin talked herself and her colleagues to (political) death. Party done.

“Mr Live Wire sees hate, he sees bitterness, he sees acrimony, he sees animosity and he sees a Government completely out of control… Just call the bleeding elections already!”

  1. Vernella, out of evil cometh good. You know in trying to shame Dr Keith Rowley and his mother you just raised him another notch! Why do I say this? Hats off to Dr Rowley’s mother, her father and her mother. They could have gone the other way and have her terminate the pregnancy, but they knew that they could have raised good out of evil intent.

    Look at Dr Keith Christopher Rowley now. His conception may not have been what was wanted but he is a better man for the people who raised him. You cannot hold a candle out to him, Vernella. You have tried to villify DR KEITH CHRISTOPHER ROWLEY with your venom but girl when one finger points at a person four are pointed back at you. I hope that you have learned that before you try to bring some one, and your own country man at that , down look at the consequences to self first.

  2. Shokin, Toppin, Moppin, poppin for nothing.

  3. We in Trinidad love him and he is going to be our next prime minister

  4. Evil woman. I cannot and will not support any thing this woman is part of.

  5. What a thing to do as a woman to another woman by putting a private family matter, true or not into the public space to discredit ones image. It’s a disgrace and speaks to the level politicans would go to get what they want

  6. She looks so stupid, why couldn’t she stay quiet and just let us keep on thinking that, omg she had to open her stinking mouth and confirm everything

  7. How could we as a people put the PP Government back in office when we’re seeing and hearing how heartless they’re. It was venomous and very spiteful, wickedness from a very wicked heart. Woe be unto you Ms Toppin

  8. That is why I have NO respect for ALL politicians…imagine not one person took offence to the statement just because they are on opposing sides.

  9. Not only did she molest Dr Rowley and family but all rape victims

  10. Shameful. Oh. Woman. Get. Behind

  11. You make those people to set you up at what CO$$$T…

  12. It’s a sad day in politics…really sad…my heart feels heavy. I had to comfort my own Mum after she saw this speech on TV. This is in no way about party, but about humanity. I pray for the families, friends and countrymen who were affected by what they heard. God is our strength!! This too shall pass…

  13. what example is left for the younger ones behind, the dignity, social justice for one’s personal life, where is the advocate practice really going ,then what really is confidentiality?

  14. She needs psychotherapy. But remember her outrageous talk was sanctioned by the entire set of MPs who listened to this and did not interrupt.The ultimate exposition of trash supported by dressed up trash.

  15. Is this is the quality of people we have in Trinidad that want to lead our country? Does she have children or grand children

  16. Party done when you have stupid morons like that on a microphone. Party done,done

  17. You have no right to be so crass and to think you are a minister you should be ashamed of yourself

  18. You could go any lower,you reach,the type of statement she has made in the past not surprise.

  19. I cannot believe that this OLD woman said something so horrible..she have children??

  20. My fellow Tobago brothers and sisters I believe that the statement made about Dr Rowley’s mother been raped was not well thought out by Mrs Toppin. However can you recall when in a general election campaign allegations of Mr Manning fathering a child besides those with his legal wife? He as the then leader cleared the air on such . As citizens of this nation let us strive to promote better values and have better leaders for our country and not be partisan and emotional. Look at the mirror people at the end of the day these guys have all established themselves and we still in the same position.

  21. Satan said well done vernella. u r a true disciple

  22. In 2010 the u n c had come up with some thing like this ,against mr. Patrick manning .can any one confirm ?

  23. how come the u.n.c womens arm havent said a squeak about this it just goes to show you

  24. She have to be a twin she too dumb for one person.

  25. where is the unc womans arm. or is it that rowley does not count?

  26. And to me what makes it worst is the blind loyalty and the abuse that is taking place that people was ordered to go down and support or risk not being payed or fired!!!!!

  27. This desperate attack on Dr Keith Rowley and his mother goes straight to the core value of the people that is running this country!

  28. This desperate attack on Dr Kieth Rowley and his mother goes straight to the core value of the people that is running this country!

  29. She’s a worldwide disgrace to all women and she should be fired immediately.

  30. Tobago EAST MP when you come to shoot shoot don’t talk.

  31. Tobago EAST MP when you come to shoot shoot don’t talk.

  32. The spoken word can be dangerous yes , but her supreme ignorance is what I’m afraid of She does not deserve to call herself woman. Everyone has already said what I am feeling I just hope Rowleys mother ,if still aground ,feels no shame due to this as she had no reason too She should be proud of the job she did (even if u didn’t vote for him ) Vernella , you stupid stupid person , resign and go away you have NO right yo do what u did. You are an ass ! !!!!!!!

  34. Why didn’t the speaker of the house or any members of the government stop her? That was an abuse of palimentary privilege.

  35. Why didn’t the speaker of the house or any members of the government stop her? That was an abuse of palimentary privilege.

  36. Five years of ongoing buffoonery and criminal conduct. An aptly sordid end to this abominable passage in our country’s history.

  38. Imagine…A no- confidence motion and she gone to say what she heard concerning Keith Rowley’s birth…but you no what…do not talk about what a man was then….say WHO HE IS NOW….today he is Dr Keith Rowley…

  39. WTF!!!! Sorry to be this crude… I cannot believe she said that…. No Lasana Liburd…. You being sarcastic, right ?

  40. Shocking Toppin is far too mild but my version will be unprintable.

  41. Cheryl Locke, do you have any evidence of what you are saying? Did you see him rape a child you are just like Toppin talking without evidence, shame, shame , shame on you.

  42. Again I say this government is so stink!so hypocritical! Please!I want to hear my Ms.Romona and Ms.Stacy and the rest of them who was offended by the word “cyat” to say something about this!PNM please sit still and let the PP commit political suicide!
