THE MAGNET OF CHESS! WILL IT SEDUCE KCM & NNP
Written by Ray Roberts on February 11, 2018
How long will that love affair between Prime Minister Keith Mitchell and Chester Humphrey last?
Both men are cunning as a fox and unquestionably have a quenching passion for political power and dominance.
Dr. Mitchell is the NNP and his mere followers dare not challenge him; but they all adore even his worst qualities in public, because of political favors and financial opportunities.
Dr. Mitchell is the ultimate leader – he puts you up and takes you down as he chooses.
In private comrade Chess does not hold Dr. Mitchell in high esteem; he considers him a political opportunist of the worse kind. However, NNP provides him with the last opportunity to be in frontline politics and be a part of political power.
Nevertheless, Chess remains ambitious and values himself as a major political force. His partner Peter-David-the-great, like all followers of Dr. Mitchell, adores him in public — hoping to be seen as the golden boy.
The question that the future will answer is how long will that love affair last; considering the revolutionary spirit of Chess and David, and their burning desire to create the second coming of their revolution and a socialist state – such as Venezuela.
Does NNP provide that opportunity? It is possible, considering that Dr. Mitchell is now a tired and burned out leader with no attractive talents- The likes of Dr. Modeste, Anthony Botswain, and Emmalyn Pierre have all surrendered as followers.
Both Chess and Peter have properly evaluated the situation and are spearheading the NNP media campaign under the leadership of Hamlet Mark. Much of Peters’ time is today spent in St. Patrick campaigning for Palmer Moses and in St. Andrew helping another new candidate, Kate Lewis.
Having interacted with many of the Chess followers, they are confident that Peter David will replace Dr. Mitchell within the next five years
The growing Peter & Chess clan sees Nicholas Steele as a token challenge; and old guard Gregory Bowen as a potential loser against Franka Bernadine in South East St. George — making the way for the smiling Peter
Already the zealous followers of the new socialist fraction within the NNP have created their own media entity. In building opposite the Excel Plaza they employed more than 25 media workers in all areas promoting the Peter candidacy.
So far, it’s all smiles among the new friends and lovers of politics. I strongly argue that, sooner rather than later, the ambition of the highly motivated but shameless Chess will show itself with Peter behind the scenes — similar to the collapse of the PRG
Having worked with Chess for 25 plus years, I know that he has a thirst for political power that is irreversible. The mere fact that he finds comfort going into the NNP and promoting their philosophy, (but even worse, championing Dr. Mitchell — a man about whom he said the most horrible things) tells you that he is a character who will stop at nothing.
The consequences of Chess’ power thirst have destroyed many — going back to the 1979 revolution and the collapse of the NDC in 2012.
The Question is, will Grenadians fall asleep and allow themselves to be preyed upon by yet another “Chess conversion” and exploitation of their support?
