So, if the stroke affects both the right and left sides of Patrick Manning, does that constitute 'co-lateral damage??'

I hope the people come out in large numbers and support Mr, London's government. The present government has not done anything for Trinidad and Tobago. What is the government strategy for Trinidad and Tobago? What are their short and long term goals? The PM and her party has successfully divided the country along ethnic lines. One thing for sure is the Indo-Trinidadians cannot win any election with out the support of other ethnic groups. According to the cencus, the Indo-Trinadians make up 41% of the population. If the PNM were to go out there and register voters(the remaining 61%)like the Democratic Party did in the US and turn them out to vote, the Indo-Trinidadian Party will not win another election. It is all about demographics. Please do not wait untill the last minute. Please start registering people now.
