Well, I’m getting credible reports that Minister Randy Horton is no longer in the Cabinet having been replaced in the Education by Minister El James, with Glenn Blakeney now becoming the Minister for the Environment.
I haven’t seen this online yet, but I have no reason to doubt this source.
I quite like Mr. Horton, and am a bit surprised at this sudden shuffle. I am not sure if this is the result of him ‘taking the fall’ for the recent mix-up that led to the recent Teachers action, or if this is some sort of fall-out from the speculation in the run up to the PLP’s ADC that he would challenge Dr. Brown as Party Leader.
I have not yet been particularly impressed with Minister El James in his now former capacity as minister of the Environment and Sports, and I’m a bit surprised at his moving into Education. I like Mr. Blakeney alot, but I’m not too sure if this role suits him, but I am willing to see how it all plays out. I am not sure yet how or if the Ministries have been realigned, as in whether Environment and Sports are still a singular ministry or not (and I still don’t understand why they aren’t their own ministries).
On another note, I’m pretty bogged down with work at the moment, so I will be occupied for the next few days, although I will still allow comments of course, just there won’t likely be many new posts for a few days.
