I cannot remember if it was here or on Caribbean News Now that Peter Binose said the Comrade Ralph said that Vincentians’ memories are good for only nine days. I dono; so I dono. But for sure, sure he is as right as rain that the government put a heap of stock in us forgetting quick.
Trouble with that (for the government) is Peter has a memory like an elephant. If it wasn’t for the amount of rum I drink, I’d be like him too.
Sometimes I can manage only weeks. For example, I remember that the puppet boss at the IADC said that not even rain can stop the yada yada before the end of the 2016 opening of the Argyle International Airport. It takes a supreme idiot to challenge and laugh in the face of the weather man. He asked for it.
And other times, I can manage months. I remember, too, back in August when the flimflam Buccament man flimflammed we justice system when he went, dressed to the nines, fit for Virgin Atlantic Upper Class, straight from Kingstown court house and instead of heading to nearby Arnos Vale, went instead to the beach at Chateau in his Bally shoes and Armani trousers, boarded a shaky pirogue — first class seat, no doubt — and hightailed it out of the clutches of justice. Pounding his wet ass on the high seas. Not even time for life jackets, I hear. From handcuffs to freedom compliments of ???? Still, he is not in the class of Tamara Marks who took the dry comfort of LIAT. Brass-face so.
The abscond was legit, they, from up high, said. Who are we to blow against the wind.
The Bally shoes didn’t even dry when his high-flying lawyer from London town write excuse saying mister flimflam got chest pains and cannot travel for three months.
August, September, October — three months. And now is four.
Not being a doubting Thomas, or one to judge, I believe the fugitive dey pun Chateau beach waiting for the Buccament fancy bus and for the Bally shoes and Armani trousers foot to dry.
He will come as legit as he left and that’s why you should not hold your breath.
