  1. So there was no money to continue the Walter Rodney Commission of Enquiry, but loads for Ministerial salaries…The PNC is shooting itself in the head since the obvious allegation will be that they stopped the Enquiry because they were indeed guilty of killing Dr Rodney. And all the while Rodney’s trusted comrade, Rupert Roopnaraine, remains passive and silent, and the distinguished and heroic Professor Clive Thomas, who withstood Burnham’s criminality, also says nothing…Who would have thought the WPA would behave so oddly, to put it mildly…?
