Prime Minister Owen Arthur wasn’t his old self today. Whether you are a supporter or not, you have to admire his energy, his ability to put a smile on anywhere and his Machiavellian skill.
But today Owen was a little down. In a reversal of the usual, his wife was driving the Lexus 4×4 while the PM sat sad faced and glum in the passenger seat. Perhaps he was feeling unwell.
Or… perhaps the Prime Minister was thinking about the increasing calls for accountability for that $750,000 “campaign” cheque that he deposited to his personal bank account “accidentally”?
Chickens sometimes run away, Owen.
But sometimes they come home to roost.
Now, about that $750k, Mr. Prime Minister…
Who gave it to you? Why did you deposit it to your personal bank account? When were the funds transferred to the party coffers? Did you fill out the prescribed anti-money laundering forms?
… and what, Sir, did you promise in return?
At least tell us that it was not received directly or indirectly from a foreign government!
