Former THA head backs London

Laying of Constitution Amendment Bill 'done at wrong time'

By Elizabeth Williams Tobago Bureau

Former Tobago House of Assembly (THA) chief secretary and leader of the Platform of Truth Hochoy Charles is in full agreement with Chief Secretary and PNM Tobago Council leader Orville London that the laying of the Constitution Amendment Bills in Parliament yesterday has been done at the wrong time.

Charles said what the People's Partnership Government, aided and abetted by Tobago Organisation of the People (TOP) leader Ashworth Jack, has done is disgusting and insulting to the people of Tobago in the build-up to the THA election on January 21.

He said to date neither he nor the people of Tobago know the details of the bill and this is totally wrong.

"And you carry it in the midst of an election campaign, you serious? They not serious. The Prime Minister all of them crazy. All of them are mad people," said Charles at his party headquarters in Scarborough.

He said if he were London, he would call all parties in Tobago and demonstrate against the doings of the Government. And he is calling for the TOP to lose the upcoming THA poll.

"And if people know what is good for them the TOP should not make one seat in this election. The TOP should not get a seat in this election or else we would be destroyed in Tobago," Charles said.

He said the TOP is foolish to think his party is being funded by the PNM as 99 per cent of his party's campaign is being funded by him. However, he has no problem joining with the PNM or any other party to run the country, but not to run the Tobago House of Assembly.

"Don't you think I'm qualified to run the country? I don't have to join with anybody to run the country, in fact all of us can build the country."
