Is Sudama the new politics?

As a foundation member of the Congress of the People (COP) and a youth of our nation, I was so proud to be in the COP with Winston Dookeran as a clean and decent leader. I subscribe to the new politics of issues, ideas and plans for the youth and depressed communities.

However, after a COP meeting in San Fernando on Tuesday night where I heard that COP brought back Trevor Sudama from the UNC and this former, now washed-up politician attacked Basdeo Panday, Jack Warner and Dr Roodal Moonilal, I was very upset.

Is this the new politics? Is Sudama an indicator of new politics? And to see him sit side by side with my leader Dookeran was most disappointing.

Our “new politics” was never about bitter attacks against anyone, but about progress. Dookeran has surprised me.

Now I cannot vote for the UNC, PNM or COP. Another youth who will not vote since all the parties are the same. But the COP, which promised to be different, ended up just as the others.

Poor Trevor is ah fockin political vagrant.
The neemakharam come back to the UNC with the hope of fighting ah seat. When he realise that he cyah get no seat to fight, he gone.
Why the fock all yuh ole coolie like that for. Yuh like ah fockin political prostitute, jumping from one political party to the next.
Jus for ah fcokin seat boy? Laard
