Why is Gonsalves so angry at the NDP?

Dr Ralph Gonsalves is mightily upset with Arnhim Eustace and the NDP for announcing the party’s decision to  switch its support from Taiwan to China upon assuming office. This announcement took everyone by surprise, especially Dr Gonsalves. Among other choice adjectives, he described the move as “stupid”.

According to the Prime Minister, Eustace and his party are in opposition, yet they are foolishly making foreign policy pronouncements. In light of his reaction to date, the question arises, why is Gonsalves so angry at the NDP?

Could it be that Gonsalves was upstaged by the Opposition? Is it true that Gonsalves himself had been contemplating a similar move for some time now? After all, for most of his years as a political activist, Gonsalves supported China! He had a change of mind upon assuming office especially when faced with the generosity of Taiwan.

Good move by the NDP! Vincentians are looking forward to more like that! Keep the Comrade upset and we may well get fresh elections!
