Manning's bag of tricks
So, the plot thickens. PM Manning takes a spin in a jet plane last week (see yesterday's post ) and THIS week it's revealed that the company that owns the jet is also putting in a bid for the TT$15b railway network. The same network, mind you, that all research has found to be an unnecessary expense. I wrote a column about this, which I will post when I get home later. Needless to say - but I'll say it anyway - Manning denies that there is anything underhand going on; apparently, it's a mere coincidence. The last time there was a 'coincidence' this 'believable', it involved a cigar and Monica Lewinsky's tunnel of love. Manning just keeps getting better and better.
