Now that he is dead, the PNM will miss good old Yasin Abu Bakr, believe it or not.
He was the buffoon black bogey man they put up whenever there were rumbles of discontent in the black PNM camp about incompetence and corruption and bad leadership. You prefer Abu Bakr to captain the ship? Shut up and go away!
The other buffoon bogey they treasure is of course the Indian UNC and bosslady Kamla Persad Bissessar.
When black PNM people grumble that the leaders are not running the country well, the PNM big balloons are quick to say, You prefer the Calcutta ship to take over? You think the Indians will give you more freeness than we? Thought so, shut up and go away!
They will see that Fuad or some other joker will take over the Muslimeen and enjoy the goodies.
What goodies you say? Why the big bucks from sales of aggregate taken from illegal quarries! The protection money paid by richy poos so their family will not be kidnapped!
Good old Abu was a millionaire, you know, a Trinidad success story.
You can storm the Parliament and shoot the prime minister and kill 24 people, and spend no years in jail and die an old man happy happy with friends and family bawling their eyes out.
