British High Commissioner Sir Tim Stew.

The issue raised centred around the registration of Venezuelan nationals in Trinidad and Tobago

The Prime Minister said the portrayal was inaccurate and argued that it was injurious to the Government and to the country’s image.

Responding to the Prime Minister, Sir Tim said:

“The Government has brought to my attention a BBC documentary on Venezuelan migrants. As I have said, the UK’s commitment to freedom of expression means that the UK media, including the BBC are independent of the UK Government.”

    Who the hell this PM think he is. He is from a pip sqeak dot in the ocean. BBC has power and reputation he cannot dream to have. Perhaps he should go plant peas in Tobago. Shadow had plenty more common sense than him. Two bit piece of crap. He is a joke.
