Stuart Young, in his eagerness to emulate his leader Keith Rowley, has shown yet again, that he is not fit to hold any high office, especially the Minister of National Security. In yet another ranting outburst with no evidence to substantiate any claim, Young, using the weight of his office, sought to vilify and criminalise members of the Opposition.
UNC PRO Senator Anita Haynes issued the following statement in response to Young’s reckless rant:
“It is not the first time, nor do we expect it to be the last that Stuart Young would show he is unable to treat the office of Minister of National Security with the respect and dignity it deserves.
The comments coming from the political platform on Friday 18th October have exposed a desperate and defeated Rowley administration that is now grasping at straws. They have only just found their voices after being rendered speechless following the Leader of the Opposition’s presentation of the UNC’s National Economic Transformation Plan in Parliament.
The Rowley administration’s main mouthpiece Stuart Young has shown that he is willing to use his position for politics to suggest some validity to his deranged outbursts. The Minister of National Security needs to tell us why, under his watch, no one in this country feels safe. Young needs to account for his tenure as the worst Minister of National Security this country has ever seen. Perhaps his preoccupation with pursuing a vendetta against UNC members and anyone who disagrees with the Government has rendered him incapable of performing in his portfolio.
The Local Government Elections campaign has kicked into high gear and while the UNC is preparing our proposed candidates to be solid representatives for the communities, the PNM is continuing to wage a propaganda war. The days of “Emailgate politics” where you will say anything to win an election are over! The population is demanding more from those of us who hold office and the UNC will rise to the occasion and do the work necessary to take this country forward.
