Yesterday was a total waste of time, a day sinberguenza
Now is the time for a COLLECTIVE SENSE OF PURPOSE, and what we got yesterday from the gentlemen at the helm of the POR party was a shitshow of the tallest order.
Our tiny island is in crisis on so many levels, and they just decided to add wood to the fire, add chaos, to insanity.
Gentlemen: You are as immature and petulant as the King-Baby in the white house.
You should be taking a page out of Mark Rutte’s book instead of looking at Trump for a role model.
WHY? Why Now?
That’s of course an unanswered question, besides the obvious: The current MinInfra started cleaning up the mess left behind by the former MinInfra, and greatly disturbed the hive.
In Aruba, no good deed goes unpunished.
She was working, moving in the right direction, but the so-called retired puppet-master didn’t like it.
He must be a ventriloquist, because I saw the MinJust speaking, but I heard the former MinInfra’s voice.
So what happened you ask.
He said in a surprise press conference that she doesn’t communicate, she is too busy to meet, she closed the public road at the park for ATV/UTV traffic and she wants to suspend payments at Serlimar thereby endangering the livelihood of many. He said the ‘party’ lost confidence in her as minister of this-that-and-the-other, and they will be replacing her. She had to resign by Monday 10am
She said it was all news to her, she has been working very hard on a great number of delicate issues, and the decisions quoted as hers were in fact made by the board and management of the park and the board and management of Serlimar respectively, and she had nothing to do with that.
He said it pains him to boot her out, they are friends, they have known each other from youth, and as a born-mediator, a self-styled peacemaker, he tried his best to prevent this blow up from happening.
She said it all came to her from left field. She was at a meeting at parliament when she heard her own party was showing her the door.
Honestly, her body language and quiet outrage made her totally believable, while he was apologetic, meandering, spinning a yarn, trying very hard to convince himself, because apparently he and she are good friends, but his master made him do it.
He was just channeling his master’s voice.
He – the Minister of Justice, Security and Integration.
She – the Minister of Land Development, Infrastructure and Environment of Aruba
Where does it come from?
Not from the MEP side of the family. The MinPres was fast to announced this was an internal POR matter, she did not want any part in it.
My lawyer friends say they cannot remove the MinInfra from her job at the ministry. They can file in a motion in parliament, but that wouldn’t fly because the opposition and the independent member will abort it.
We are burdened by so many problems, and you just went ahead and created some more.
The MinPres is running a kindergarten.
And by the way, compliments to the MinPres on her excellent discourse last evening, restoring stability to education, acknowledging difficulty and promising slow-change. That was exactly what’s needed!
