Controversial Chairman of Parliament criticizes MP Emmanuel

PHILIPSBURG -- MP Rolando Brison heavily criticized the functioning of fellow-MP Christopher Emmanuel during the closing of the parliamentary year on Monday.

Without mentioning him by name, Brison reacted to Emmanuel’s statement that the current administration is “the worst government ever.” After giving several examples of perceived accomplishments, Brison said: “Is this a question of the worst government ever? Or is it just a statement from the laziest faction leader we have ever seen?”

Brison tackled Emmanuel’s observation that the current administration “has done nothing” with the remark: “The irony does not escape me that this remark comes from the one faction that has done nothing.”

Emmanuel clearly felt attacked by Brison’s remarks. On the radio broadcast The Review with Khalil Revan (My88.3fm) Emmanuel said that if the chairman wanted to grade somebody he ought to look in the mirror and grade himself. “I may be a lazy faction leader or faction member, but what I am not is the most crackhead, substance abuse and a drug using member of parliament.”

The dispute between Brison and Emmanuel seems to have set in motion a chain of events that could very well lead to Brison’s downfall.
