In an attempt to change the social fabric of the crime-plagued Laventille community, Government is considering the establishment of a massive re-development exercise “from top to bottom.”
Prime Minister Patrick Manning announced this last evening, while addressing People’s National Movement (PNM) supporters after a hastily-planned walkabout in John John.
Manning told an audience of about 350 faithful at the basketball court in the area that he had been contemplating the social problems in East Port-of-Spain during “my quiet moments... and deciding how to treat with it.
“We have to put in place—and we are studying how it is done elsewhere in the world—a programme that comprehensively starts from the top of the hill and comes right down,” he said, amid a lukewarm response from the crowd.
The PM pointed out, though, that the Government might have to buy out lands in the area to facilitate the exercise.
“And, if we have to buy out everybody, we will buy out. We will rebuild housing in accordance with a planned development and on this occasion—as we do that—we will have to put in roads, water, proper drainage and we will have to do the project in such a way that it is consistent with the highest standards of development elsewhere in the world.
“That is the only way to do it... We will start at the top of the hill and come down the hill.”
Manning recalled that the Government had been attempting to change the social face of Laventille through the Beverly Hills housing development.
However, he noted that the project had been plagued by controversy.
This fockin negroid feel he smart yuh know.
Laventille is the hot spot for fockin murders and crime in the country. Labentille is also the home of the fockin PNM. Manning and dem know if dey take these teefing, murdering sons and whores of all dem Grenadian descendants and scatter the fockers all over the marginal constituencies it will beef up their support in those areas.
And that is what the exercise is all about. Apart from that the mudder cont and them goin to get paid for that as well. That will now bring about another problem. As yuh gee dem fockers money dey goin to buy more drugs and more fockin guns.
So coolies, start packing and running. The focking PNM goin to bring them right into your communities, which dey will fock up in a short space of time.
