The United National Congress (UNC) said it needs a figure on exactly how much the National Security Minister’s incompetence and his petty politics are costing us.
They posed the question as the matter involving this country and Vertical Aviation Services, the owners of a helicopter leased by this country under the UNC administration is now before the courts.
In a release, the UNC said the country is now getting the details of the outrageous costs that the Government of Trinidad and Tobago will have to pay Vertical Aviation in the US, all because of Stuart Young.
It said “If Vertical Aviation gets the $100 million judgement that it is demanding, it is wholly the fault of Stuart Young’s dangerous, reckless, vindictive, incompetent, pushy, infantile, and simply dotish behaviour.”
“On this matter alone, the cost of us keeping Stuart Young as Minister of National Security is $45,630.85 every single day. And that figure rises every day, because there is $30,000 added daily as interest.”
“We have not even counted the disaster caused by Stuart Young through the gas negotiations in Houston, and the matters involving the Dutch Government and Damen ships and engineers.
On top of that, the party said “we have to add the enormous damage to our country’s reputation that he has caused with the Barbadian Government and the lock out of Trinidad and Tobago citizens, with the US Government and the the Delcy visit, and with the Canadian and UK governments and the lock out of citizens stuck in Canada.
The UNC said Trinidad and Tobago cannot afford to keep Stuart Young as Minister of National Security any longer. After Keith Rowley, he is single-handedly the most destructive person to our country. Stuart Young must go!
