    This report is inaccurate; the Prime Minister said that she had received a letter of resignation from Mr. Ramlogan, but Mr. Griffith has said that he did not resign, he was fired

    What ever her failings this Prime Minister will leave a legacy of some accountability for any future cabinet in Trinidad & and Tobago. It will be a hard act for any future Prime Minister to follow. Madam Prime Minister I appreciate your tenacity , resolve , and strong will……Maybe a ray of light is beginning to shine through the darkness.
