2. He's overcome with the desire to be the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago.
The first covetousness has led him to hire an image consultant. But, cosmetics may hide blemishes, not remove them, not so Mr Leopard?
The second though, is the real, unquenchable frenzy giving him ulcers—everything he does is aimed at fulfilling his prime ministerial ambitions.
It's a desperate race against time—like every human, he has no say over when Death will come knocking...like every PNMite, he knows if the PNM doesn't make it back by 2015, it never, ever shall.
That's why, on September 24th 2012, in his Republic Day message, Dr Rowley did pretentiously extol the role of the Mass Media and promise to do his utmost to protect media practitioners, to wit:
Apparently, he is not one of us, as, within three months, when given the opportunity to walk his "all of us is godfather" talk, he would make a volte face and refuse to alert the media personality, or her boss, or his own PNM colleagues, upon receiving a mysterious document which allegedly signalled a member of the said Mass Media was in imminent, life-threatening danger.
Dr Rowley's queer behaviour doesn't surprise me for two reasons:
2. In his wrapping-up contribution to his absurd, no-confidence motion, he confessed to taking the deliberate decision not to show the document to his own PNM parliamentary colleagues because, in his mind, he was the only trustworthy official, his colleagues, according to Mighty Shadow, being a gaggle of gossipers.
In light of the foregoing, it's beyond doubt neither Dr Keith Rowley, nor his PNM, is worthy of a second look if their names or symbol appear on any ballot paper in future.
