What A Crowd!

By Marcus M. Mottley, Ph.D.

King George V Ground was packed! It was filled with a sea - an ocean of blue and yellow!

People from everywhere... the young, the old, the middle-aged, the infirmed, people in wheel-chairs... They were all there...

They came to endorse the candidacies of Lenworth Johnson, Bertrand Joseph, Winston Williams and the Honourable Prime Minister, Baldwin Spencer! They also came to hear the date of the election!

The atmosphere was a carryover from the motorcade that was held earlier today! Festive! Supportive! Confident!

A lot of substance was shared tonight! The candidates and their colleagues gave the massive crowd the reasons why they should give UPP five more years! They highlighted the fact that the ALP was running scared and that there was only one reason why ALP was contesting the election: They wanted to avoid justice!

But Justice Day is coming! It will be here within 21 days!

Yes the Prime Minister indicated that he would dissolve Parliament tomorrow... Monday February 9th.

The election is just starting to warm up! People are getting ready! As a matter of fact I think that the people are more ready than the candidates! And so they were disappointed when they did not hear a specific election date!

But the people are ready and they demonstrated that today and tonight!!!
