See you in Five Years, Cutie tells Magistrate

MP Steadroy Antigua St. John's - "See you in five years," political hopeful Steadroy "Cutie" Benjamin told a magistrate recently.

The Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) candidate for St John's City South will face Mervyn "MR" Richards in the upcoming polls.
 
Benjamin, one of Antigua's most sought-after defense counsels, usually has a busy schedule. With the elections only days away, Benjamin yesterday named an attorney who would "stand in the gap" for him while he is away.


 
"I am here today, but not next week," a chuckling Benjamin told the court.
 
The lawyer, Samantha May, operates from Benjamin's chambers.
 
Earlier, Benjamin told the magistrate, "If things go my way, see you in five years' time. If not, see you on June 16."
 
If he fails at the polls, this would be Benjamin's first defeat.

You have described exactly what you do best.

You offer nothing meaningful to the discussion.


Hence " ...YOU-JUS- A- ChAT" that which might be considered " ...gibberish."

You are bitter and hopelessly lost. Please liberate your mind.

Sure you can contribute more positively to the discussions. Your are so encouraged.

Hi Frenchie,
Always looked forward to your sometimes " ...Poetic commentaries and quotes."

Maybe you might just decide on becoming one.

Best wishes.

I find it most unfair to Mr. Benjamin that he has not been given the opportunity to plead his case regarding the passport incident in a court of law. Until he has been given a chance to clear his name there will be a dark cloud hanging over him wherever he may roam. Bring him to the Magistrate and let the poor man have his day in court to which he is well entitled.

Illiteracy & Numeracy Stalks The Land!

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! The discourse at the Amofah Market at Da Bridge was Most Sobering! Anansi and his mates decided to engage in Cultural Melee while waxing philsophically!
Tenman who in recent days had suffered many 'slings & arrows' whispered Quote:
If you can meet with (Illiteracy & Numeracy) And treat those two impostors just the same; - Kipling
in this "silly season" when throughout the "Deserted Island of Pompey", Che Roared Quote:
''Ill fares the land, to hastening ills a prey, Where wealth accumulates, and men decay: Princes and lords may flourish, or may fade; A breath can make them, as a breath has made; But a bold peasantry, their country's pride, When once destroyed, can never be supplied.'' - Goldsmith.
SlyThatGuy was going to have the last lofty say Quote:
The incumbent party’s manifesto can be considered its report card, because even though they will have added some more subjects, they are sure to be ticking off the ones that they passed. Hopefully you will be familiar with EACH (AB)STEP needed to LEAP to the NEST or get you through the GATE. - Madame Nadine Blackman.

Darn right. Did correct the work of Police officers in " ...Red Ink." Tried to eliminate " ...Mediocrity."

Who said they were not mad to see " ...Reports or Statements returned, with almost half of it corrected in red ink.

That was what the teachers had done to every " ...Dunce or half dunce student." That was what they did to me. It had helped me greatly.

Whoever you are, and perhaps you may have been one of those who may have written " ...Reports and/or Statements" that may have made " ...Inmates at the Boy's Training School" felt that they were more intelligent than the officers who may have caused them to be residents there.

By the way, ' ...Why do you believe " ...Che' ; ...TenMan and ...Have Mercy were querying?- They all wanted more content-more details in the story.

OK my friend SLY.

Don't fool yourselves, learned from every commentator, but avoid contention with some. Used the time to research.

Look out for " ...THE DRAMATIC ANNOUNCEMENT-THE COUNTDOWN" possibly tomorrow.

LOGIC AND REALITY

#13 RAWLSTON POMPEY » 2014-06-04 22:34

CHE',
You see, in my way of thinking, it is about " ...Logic and Reality."

Except a charge was " ...Indictable" (Trial by Jury), where upon conviction" a ...Judge may order confinement to a penal institution, only a "...Magistrate" may so " ...Convict and Confine."

Based upon that which was reported in this news story, neither had occurred.

Then why tried to " ...fool yourself or be misled by those positing arguments without discernment?"

You still correcting with them red ink scratching and changing people words so they sound like you? Did it work in CID and did it work when you became commissioner. I believe the phrase to each his own is quite suitable and your interpretation is just subjective. HAAAAA! Am laughing at myself for sounding smart and know i am a bit stupid. That one is for you though. At his five years announcement I could conclude that if he is unsuccessful he might be before the court on the 16 to answer charges and this idea that he will not represent anyone if he is returned to office is neither here nor there. What would stop him this time around? A certain post of min of security? [email protected] Something catch at my throat just now. Oh well finally decided to throw in the towel, not compelled, it aint a morals or ethics thing. Remember he has been undefeated and the practice he engages in has been done while a minister. plenty a dem a wear many hats digging dem hand into every cookie jar tdem find. Where is the DPP anyways Is he on vacation, does someone got him by the bolls that he will not act only Rasta you got strength for?

See you in five years Cutie told Magistrate.I am not a mind reader.In my opinion he was saying that his party would win the elections.If that were to happen and he became a Minister of Government.He could not go the court and practice his craft for 5 years.That of a Lawyer.

DESTITUTE OF PERCEPTIONS

#7 RAWLSTON POMPEY » 2014-06-04 11:47

Come on " ...Sly," never thought you were " ...Destitute of Perceptions."

Grade 6 students " ...Mary E. Piggot Primary School," may easily interpret:

" ...See you in five years" to mean, if he is " ...Successful in the elections; ...appointed as a Minister of Government."
He " ...will not then be able to engage in private legal practice."

Case on point " ...National Security Minister, Senator Dr. Errol Cort -Attorney-at-Law."

" ...See you on June 16th, 2014.
Form 1 Students at the " ...Lutheran School" would interpret this to mean, " ...If he is unsuccessful or defeated," then he " ...shall return to his private legal practice."

Case on point " ...former National Security Minister, Senator Collin Derrick."

If you read between the lines you'll know doubt discover what the writer of the article is implying. I think the writer is trying to draw our attention to the attitude displayed by Cutie Benjamin. When Benjamin says to the magistrate see you in five years " he's actually saying he doesn't have to deal with the court regarding the fraud charges if he wins his seat and is elected for the next five years. That's the attitude because they feel their status puts them above the law.
