Monsoon

My, what a difference a couple of months makes.

Two months ago the doom and gloom was whether the PLP would die a slow death as a result of their leadership battle between Ewart Brown and Alex Scott, and now the UBP is having a particularly bad run on it.

The news that Gwyneth Rawlins, party chairperson has resigned, has thrown the party back into turmoil. But, as they say, 24 hours is a long time in politics, and the PLP can attest to the fact that in October they felt very uncertain about their future while today they feel invincible.

But for Wayne Furbert and the UBP, when it rains it pours; and right now it's a monsoon.

I just got off the phone with two MPs who told me that they had a late night last night, that they have a new young and energetic party chairperson, and will be holding an 11AM press conference.

So they fight on.

You can debate the merits of that, but that's the course they've evidently chosen and I can say that my conversations were clearly not a case of putting on a brave face.

I'll have more to say on this later as the picture becomes clearer.

But for now I'll say that Jamahl had told me that more was coming...to which I'd assumed he meant that his claims would be substantiated. Evidently I was wrong, we've got more claims and another person parroting Jamahl's press release.

This is clearly an orchestrated series of events, and it's pretty clear to me that it's being driven by Dr. Brown and his proxies.

But that's politics.

I'm going to try and get up to the UBP's press conference at 11, and will report back what I find out but it won't be until early afternoon.
