How Ingraham Treats His MPs
We reported last week how Vernae Grant MP (FNM) for Eight Miles Rock is having a problem securing her nomination from the FNM.
Hubert Ingraham, the Prime Minister and leader of the FNM, reportedly wants someone new in that seat. Perhaps this story which follows is a sign of the times. Mrs. Grant was in the smoking room of the House of Assembly on Wednesday 29th June.
She saw the PM and asked if she could speak to him about something for a minute. “I have something I need to say to you,” she said. The PM turns around and says: “Well if you need to talk to me, call the Prime Minister’s office and make an appointment.” “But I just need to say something here, ” she pleaded. The Prime Minister replied: “If you want to talk to me, you should call the Prime Minister’s office and make an appointment.”
He turned around and left the room. Kendal Wright, the MP (FNM) for Clifton, a man who knows about snubs by the Prime Minister said to the perplexed Mrs. Grant: “I bet you if that was Kay Forbes Smith (the Consul General in Atlanta) he would simply have gone off to the side and spoken to her. ” Amen!
