An expressly grotesque obsession with the UNC.


A particular daily rag's headline this morning expressly trumpets: UNC POWER.
It's curtness, lack of verb and prominence combine expressly to imply whatever it heralded would go on to substantiate why it was chosen to be used.

Amazingly, the details don't -they deliberately speak of the Honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar being Political Leader of the United National Congress while studiously ignoring the glaring fact that she's Political Leader of the People's Partnership.

With respect to the latter political group, it mentions "other leaders of the coalition", then identifies certain other Honourable gentlemen by name and partisan affiliation as if to imply such Honourable gentlemen are Deputy Political Leaders of the Partnership.

However, truth be told, there's no position of "Deputy Political Leader of the People's Partnership" -the Fyzabad Declaration attests to this.

One is therefore perplexed; hence, one must ask why the particular rag chose to express itself as it did today.

The only plausible answers are:
1. The particular rag is trafficking in sensationalism, whereby it hopes:
(i) a couple hundred thousand extra copies would sell today, as the hundreds of thousands of UNC members/supporters throughout the Caribbean zero in to buy a copy; and
(ii) for a huge spike in hits on its online edition, as the hundred million-plus UNC members/supporters worldwide zero in to relish, or the thirty thousand UNC haters worldwide rush in where angels fear to tread."
or:
2. The particular rag is continuing to express its hateful opposition of the UNC, as was recently reconfirmed by its owners marrying it to the I95FM media group.

Both scenarios paint a picture of an expressly grotesque obsession with the UNC and of its Political Leader, the Most Honourable Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

He who is not with me is against me. If your agenda is intractably opposed to mine, furthermore, is throughout pursued in a manner which expressly shows
that, despite my undisputed vibrancy and beneficence, your intention at all costs is to bury me, not praise me, then, sorry, I wash my hands -I can no longer support you in any tangible manner.

Nonetheless, history does also record I am quick to forgive, especially when an attacker desists or is hapless.

By no stretch of the imagination is the express attacker hapless -despite having all the information in hand, it expressly failed to mention who is the Head Chef of People's Partnership. It'd have only neglected because it knew what we all know -a Head Chef has the final say as to whether an item is under-prepared, just right, or overcooked, thus has the final say whether an item is fit for consumption.


So, no more espresso for me, till every expressly unmagnificent (sic) obsession with the UNC ends!
