The Battle for 14-17 park Street, Port of Spain Part VI. The Special Convention.

Brothers and sisters in pan, please note that The CIP,  Aquil Arrindell and Gregory Lindsay are only puppets in the politics of pan, allowed to promote their own personal agendas, while furthering the cause of a faceless cadre of corrupt, toxic, recycled material whose closets are full of skeletons that can be positively identified by both the Forteau fraction, and by Keith Diaz. Hence the reason GREGORY LINDSAY is continually being shoved in front of TV cameras, and AQUIL ARRINDELL is continually being bombarded with articles that he did not, and/or does not write to publish on this global forum which he chooses to call "Ah Ole Talk Forum" when caught flip flopping and back peddling

REWIND TO NOVEMBER 2017

  • REMEMBER HOW GREGORY LINDSAY GALLERIED HIMSELF ON NATIONAL TV, ripping apart Keith Diaz's character?
  • REMEMBER HOW AQUIL ARRINDELL GALLERIED HIMSELF ON THIS GLOBAL FORUM, defaming Keith Diaz?
  • REMEMBER HOW GREGORY LINDSAY GALLERIED HIMSELF about boycotting Panorama?

FAST FORWARD TO CARNIVAL 2018 - APRIL/MAY 2018

  • Gregory Lindsay takes his band to Panorama, and believes that because he is the CIP's Advocate, he should automatically make it all the way to the finals, on a stage where the playing field is level, and the advantage of enhanced acoustics is absent. Aquil Arrindell's band does not leave his panyard.
  • Gregory Lindsay went back on national TV and disclosed to the world that Keith Diaz is a transparent public official...
  • Aquil Arrindell, promoting Keith Diaz, wrote on this global forum that; "What is amusing and ironic is that photo and his band of five thieves hate Mr. Diaz so much that they took him to court and he ended up back as President. Mr. Diaz, the one they took to court did not lose. It is the membership that are continually on the losing end because Photo, Shepherd, Scobby, Tempo, El Salvadour, and Pablow, alledgedly took the membership’s money to challenge the membership’s decision..."
  • What is amusing is that Aquil Arrindell and Gregory Lindsay no longer seem to want Mr. Diaz to account for luxury vehicles they alleged were imported from the UK
  • What is amusing is that Aquil Arrindell and Gregory Lindsay no longer seem to want to question Mr. Diaz about the investment of Pan Players money in capital projects.
  • What is amusing is that Aquil Arrindell and Gregory Lindsay are now solidly behind mr. Diaz, and may have (at least for the time being) given him immunity from prosecution in the court of Panman's Opinion.
  • What is amusing is that Aquil Arrindell and Gregory Lindsay have now trained their guns on the men who defended Mr. Diaz against their volleys late last year.
  • What is not amusing is that Aquil Arrindell and Gregory Lindsay seems hell bent on encouraging the steel band fraternity to exchange SIX OF ONE for HALF A DOZEN OF THE SAME.

Have members of the steel band fraternity considered the resonance of the deafening silence of representatives of The Big 5 whose names and appearances generates the most annual revenue for Pan Trinbago? Have members of the steel band fraternity considered the resonance of the deafening silence of representatives of The +2, where only one half dead, band hopping ex official, who not unlike Forteau, Diaz and the advisor to the president, may firmly believe that his navel string is buried at 14-17 Park Street, Port of Spain, hiding behind Aquil and Gregory, refusing to give up on his lifelong goal of being an executive of Pan Trinbago?

Have members of the steel band fraternity considered if the virtuous represents himself, or those on the banks of the St Anns river?

Have members of the steel band fraternity considered the half dead, band hopping, recycled, former and current regional officials that Gregory Lindsay and Aquil Arrindell continually attempt to sanitize and impose on delegates of steelbands as suitable replacements to the current undesirables?

I want to implore delegates of steelbands planning to attend tomorrow's special convention that the date and time:

  1. Is designed to pressure you into making hasty decisions that your band members did not have time to deliberate on.
  2. It was designed to pressure you into doing what Keith Diaz wants, and not what is best for Panmen, as not one of you are prepared to spend all night Thursday night deliberating on the real issues at hand.

I want to encourage delegates of steelbands planning to attend tomorrow's illegal  special convention to boycott this meeting, and reject it's unconstitutionality, as any decisions taken here will again be voided by a court of law.

  • Keith Diaz has now found willing allies in Aquil Arrindell, Gregory Lindsay and the CIP who only a few short months earlier vilified him as Trinidad and Tobago did Mano Benjamin back in the 60s, yet these men are now encouraging you to  give your daughters' hand in marriage to Mano.
  • Richard Forteau and the other embattled members of Pan Trinbago's central executive  have now found a willing ally in Bryon Serrette, whose only desire in not "To Kill A Cat" like Black Prince, but to ascend to the throne at 14-17 Park Street Port of Spain.  

Unlike others, I do not believe that the steeband fraternity is bankrupt, or does not possess the human capital, skill, or intellectual and professional capacity to decide for themselves the future, and direction of Pan.

  • Clary Ben is a Panman.
  • Ainsworth Mohammed is a Panman.
  • Michael Marcano is a Panman.
  • Nestor Sullivan is a Panman.
  • There are many many more that I can make mention of, younger, stronger, harder...

Aquil Arindell and Gregory Lindsay are hustlers, singing for a bigger slice of the PIE that is divided annually at 14-17 park Street, Port of Spain, men who have demonstrated their intention to isolate you when they get their way as is evidenced by their hot romance with Keith Diaz.

  • Thursday evening will be revealing.
  • Friday will be a day of reckoning.
  • The weekend should be exciting for steelbands.

Consider the similarities

A word to the wise is sufficient.

You know what is amusing, seeing an expat and his protege playing hide and seek online in anticipation of... LMAO.

... as you know (and Cecil Hinkson will tell you), I have stated many times on THIS FORUM that DEBT IS NEGOTIABLE. So the PAN TRINBAGO DEBT is the LAST THING ON MY MIND. If DOCTOR DOLLY had HALF OF A BUSINESS BRAIN she would have dissolved that debt already.

What I have been debating OUT HERE for 40 years (with the TRINI CROWD) and on this forum for almost TEN is the value of the HUMAN CAPITAL within the STEELBAND FRATERNITY -- which I consider to be WORTHLESS.

It is no accident that THIS FORUM (WHEN STEEL TALKS) is NOT BASED IN TRINIDAD.

PAN has gone GLOBAL!!! And the HUMAN PAN RESOURCES IN TRINIDAD (educated and uneducated) is stuck  in a  NINETEEN SIXTIES MENTALITY driven by OLD EMOTIONS.

I batting for local talent, and you hitting them for six? That is unacceptable sir. it is unacceptable to denounce the entire local steel band fraternity in this manner. 

Make steelband great again. No steelpan movement/organization needed. Anybody try to figure out what goes on in steelbands around the country? How well are they run?  It seems that 'all is well' in bands around the country, maybe PanTrinbago should follow their lead, if allyuh really need a leader. Just sayin'.

If that's your DESIRE so be it...

Richard Forteau and the other embattled members of Pan Trinbago's central executive have now found a willing ally in Bryon Serrette, whose only desire in not "To Kill A Cat" like Black Prince, but to ascend to the throne at 14-17 Park Street Port of Spain.

LOL...yuh bad too much...

Indeed an excellent executive for pan. 

  • Clary Ben is a Panman.
  • Ainsworth Mohammed is a Panman.
  • Michael Marcano is a Panman.
  • Nestor Sullivan is a Panman.

bugs

Pan lost a moment of national unity when:

  1. Gregory Lindsay declared Keith Diaz transparent on national TV.
  2. Aquil Arrindell joined forces with Keith Diaz against Richard Forteau and friends.

"...although there have been many leaders of the steelband fraternity since, none have really changed the course of pan history as George "Sonny" Goddard did.
