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.

Winston ‘Gypsy’ Peters is an Idiot

And a ghetto fabulous, embarrassing-ass one at that too. Handkerchiefs have been used for centuries, said to have been invented by Richard II of England. When used as an accessory to a suit, a handkerchief is known as a pocket square. Wikipedia lists several ways in which a pocket square can be folded :

  • The Presidential is folded at right angles to fit in the pocket.
  • The TV Fold is folded diagonally with the point inside the pocket.
  • The One-point Fold is folded diagonally with the point showing.
  • The Two-point Fold is folded off-center so the two points don’t completely overlap.
  • The Three-point Fold is first folded into a triangle, then the corners are folded up and across to make three points.
  • The Four-point Fold is an off-center version of the Three-point Fold.
  • The Cagney is basically a backwards version of the Four-point Fold.
  • The Puff or the Cooper is simply shaped into a round puff.
  • The Reverse Puff is like the Puff, except with the puff inside and the points out, like petals.
  • The Astaire is a puff with a point on either side.
  • The Straight Shell is pleated and then folded over to give the appearance of nested shells.
  • The Diagonal Shell is pleated diagonally and then folded.

And here are some pictures of the pocket square in action :

proper pocket square

Classy.

However, what the fuck is this?

Winston \'Gypsy\' Peters in Parliament

That’s NO pocket square people. That is in fact, a TIE HANGING OUT OF MR. PETERS’ POCKET. And not just any tie, its identical to the one he’s wearing with his shirt! Yes, its not just an embarrassingly, ignorant, fashion disaster choice, he’s color-coordinating it! A grown man, a MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT in the Lower House of the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago thinks its fucking proper to hang a tie out of his pocket! Either that or he foolishly thought that the people he saw with fabric hanging out of their pockets (pocket squares) were hanging ties out of their pockets too!

And it gets worse!

Bling bling????

From this pic its seen that MP Peters is wearing an earring!! What the fuck???? Isn’t that like, disrespectful or something? What’s next platinum teeth?? I wear an earring too everyday but I’m sure if I were elected to Parliament I would have to stop wearing it then….or atleast not begin wearing one, uber-ignorantly thinking it constitutes proper attire.
How esteemed. From this pic we can also see the TIE HANGING OUT a little more.

Another pic from my TV on the Parliament channel which identifies this disgrace (Mr. Winston Peters, MP – Member for Mayaro)  that ridiculed the House of Representatives on that day.

What a joke. What clowns these people are. Would a US Senator or a UK MP come to a sitting looking anything remotely like that jackass???
