The Express yesterday pleased me greatly. The editorial points out once again the typical behaviour and the character of Roodal Moonilal, the MP for Oropouche East.
“Why yuh doh hush yuh stink mouth?” he shouted loudly at me across the parliamentary floor, when I accused the UNC of thievery of public money.
The Express correctly condemned Moonilal’s constant use of the name and circumstances of the daughter of Maria Daniel, a woman with whom Minister Stuart Young had a relationship.
According to the editorial, Moonilal descends into this cesspool in order to attack the minister.
The editorial also observed that neither Madam Kamla Persad-Bissessar, who holds herself out as being “with great empathy to women and children”, nor the UNC, has taken action to rein him in.
Krystiana Sankar is simply his latest victim. When he was forced to apologise to me and the Parliament for his comment that “da is why, Snake have lead fuh yuh” no one in the UNC attempted to correct and rehabilitate him. He went to court, lost and obviously, did not learn.
I commend the Express on “expressing” a thoughtful, moralistic and sensible position on this issue. It reflects the general public sentiment.
