BREAKING NEWS: Reliable Labour Party sources have confirmed that Roosevelt Skerrit wants to step down as Prime Minister but his choice of a replacement is not finding favor with senior members of the Cabal.
The sources reveal that the ailing Prime Minister is under serious family pressure to step down and pay attention to his health. He wants either UWP defector JI or his long time right hand man Colin McIntyre to take over, but Reggie and others will have none of it. So the battle lines have been drawn, and the party is in the vice grip of internal strife.
Meantime there are social media reports that he is in the process of selling his multi million dollar Vielle Case home to a US resident in order to facilitate building a new family home in Morne Daniel.
Well placed labour insiders say the recently announced plan to improve the pension arrangements for former leaders, is really a Skerrit initiative to set up himself in light of his impending departure from the Prime Minister’s Office.
