British MP surprised by controversy surrounding his plea on behalf of TT nationals

British Member of Parliament, Steven Baker, had a little something to say in response to the comments made against him by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley.

In the UK Parliament earlier this week, Baker said there are currently T&T citizens in his constituency of Wycombe, who have been burning through their savings as they desperately await repatriation. He then made an appeal to the T&T Government to repatriate its citizens stranded in the UK.

However, on Thursday night, during a virtual post budget ‘meet-up’, Rowley accused Baker of being an “itinerant UK MP,” whom he said the United National Congress had found to raise the issue in the UK Parliament.
Rowley added that if Baker was really interested in T&T, he should “try to get back the money that they (the UNC) thief.”

He added that the Conservative MP will “get correspondence from me personally” seeking his assistance to find state funds now believed to be hidden in the UK.

Baker, in a Facebook post on Friday, did not refer to Rowley by name, but said, “I would never have imagined that showing some simple compassion for people stuck away from home would generate so much controversy. God bless you all.”
