Gonsalves to sack Daniel?

Montgomery Daniel

Montgomery Daniel

There is talk in some circles that Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves seriously considered removing Montgomery Daniel as minister of agriculture. However, he is reluctant to do so since it may lead to problems in the party. Despite, his failings as a minister, Daniel himself is not prepared to budge.

For Gonsalves, sacking Daniel could lead to the demise of the ULP. It is therefore a risk that the PM is not prepared to take. For one thing, removing Daniel from that critical ministry may be seen as as sign of a weakening ULP. Furthermore, Daniel may defect and leave the North Windward seat up for grabs. Thus, as far as the PM is concerned, Daniel must handled with care.

Although Montgomery Daniel has proven over and over that he is incompetent, stupid, and backward; although he continues to be a big embarrassment to the administration; political imperatives demand that he retains his position.

The thing is: Gomery scares the Comrade!

    All of a sudden Gonsalves is the principled, morally high, leader! What’s with this ingratiating guy who’s writing these pieces. Guy, yo nar give up. Yo will eventually get something.
