PRIME MINISTER Patrick Manning caused good-natured laughter yesterday when he assured the House of Representatives that he has been certified fit for service “at all levels” yesterday.
He was replying to a casual query and good wishes from Chaguanas MP Manohar Ramsaran about his recent health check-up in Cuba where he had previously had a heart-valve replacement and was fitted with a pacemaker.
“I’d like to assure him and the members of the national community that not only have I been given a clean bill of health, but the doctor has assured me that I can return to service at all levels with full capacity, Mr Speaker.”
At that jocular quip, MPs clapped as laughter filled the House.
Minutes earlier Manning had struck a serious note as he explained that recently he had got two differing diagnoses on his health.
Yes Shithead Mano! Enquire about yuh fockin colleague.
Doctors remove ah lump from Kamla breast but yuh aint concern bout she, yuh former Cabinet colleague. You concern bout Manning so the COP will make PNM win this election, so all yuh go finally get rid of the ole man from the scene. But all yuh wait, you aint see Manning say he ready for servicing.
He want to service all yuh cont jus like he droppin that limp black prick on Christine Sahadeo all over Trinidad.
Why you think he driving around by he self now. He aint want the security to see he pickin she up to go and bull she all over the place.
Just now they go have to put ah pacemaker in she cyat.
