The Honourable Patrick Manning

Well in researching about the Minister of Finance, I realized the Parliament’s website is cool in terms of its graphics and layout of information. While idling there I couldn’t help but click on “Prime Minister” for kicks…there’s a short biography about Manning there, no surprise..but the ending paragraph to me was LOL-ass funny :

“Mr. Manning is married to Senator the Honourable Hazel Manning (current Minister of Local Government) and they have two sons – Brian and David.”

They seem to cutely suggest they got married while in Parliament as senators…if only it were that cute. The Undisputed Truth however is :

In 2001, Mr. Manning led his party’s campaign against nepotism as claimed to be exhibited by the now opposition party, the United National Congress (UNC). In an unbelievably hypocritical move, Manning promptly after winning the election appointed his wife of 29 years, Hazel Manning, as a Senator.

Believe or not that is the truth. Not to mention that Manning re-appointed her as Minister of Local Government in 2007. Demockcracy.
