The Prime Minister is right to halt the projects in Tobago and order any investigation if she is of the view that there is financial impropriety and corruption in all or any part of the process.
If Orville London feels that the House of Assembly can do anything it wishes without oversight from the central government then he must be sadly mistaken about the governing structure of our twin-island republic.
So far I have not heard these so-called interest groups and trade union leaders supporting the Government's decision to ensure that there is transparency and accountability in the conduct of the project.
Maybe if the Leader of the Opposition had called for the stoppage of a government project then they would have been calling for the resignation of a government minister or they may have been doing the usual press conferences to call for protest action.
What these leaders of interest groups and trade union movements may not realise is that the population is taking note of their double standards and will judge them at the appropriate time.
