IN A CRYPTIC MESSAGE ON HER FACEBOOK PAGE THIS AFTERNOON, THE HONOURABLE DELMA THOMAS ANNOUNCED, AND I QUOTE “THERE IS A NEW CARETAKER IN THE CONSTITUENCY OF ST. ANDREW NW FOR THE NEW NATIONAL PARTY AND SO SHE IS PRESENTLY INFORMING PEOPLE OF A MEETING WITH THE POLITICAL LEADER. I TAKE THIS AS AN UNOFFICIAL EXPULSION OF THE PARTY. END OF QUOTE.

SHE ADDED THAT, IT WAS THE SAME THING THAT HAPPENED TO SISTER X AND SISTER Y.. SHE NAMED NAMES, BUT THESE HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED.

MRS. THOMAS ENDED HER POST BY SAYING, I WILL GET AN INVITE BECAUSE IT’S THEIR STRATEGY….END OF QUOTE.

HER MESSAGE HAS FURTHER HEIGTENED SPECULATION ABOUT HOW A CLEARLY FRAUGHT (FROT) POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP WILL END.

THE NEWS COMES DAYS AFTER LONGSTANDING NNP ACTIVIST ANDRE DONALD CALLED FOR THOMAS TO RESIGN AS MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT FOR THE ST. ANDREW NORTH WEST CONSTITUENCY WHICH HAS BEEN AN NNP STRONGHOLD SINCE 2013. IT FOLLOWED HER FAILURE TO ATTEND THE MOST RECENT SITTING OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

THE PLOLITICAL DRAMA STARTED IN THE AFTERMATH OF LAST JUNE’S GENERAL ELECTIONS AS OBSERVERS MONITORED THE POSTURE AND BODY LANGUAGE AT SOME OF THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE OPPOSITION PARTY WHILE ATTENDING THE SWEARING IN CEREMONY AT THE GRENADA TRADE CENTER.

THOSE WHO FOLLOWED THE OPTICS AT THE POST CEREMONIAL LAUNCH PHOTO SESSION SENSED DISCONTENT.

MRS. DELMA THOMAS ADDED FURTHER FUEL TO THE FIRE BY ENGAGING IN A NUMBER OF PUBLIC EVENTS ALONGSIDE THE NDC REPRESENTATIVE IN THE CONSTITUENCY, MRS. GLORIA THOMAS WHO SHE DEFEATED AT THE POLLS.

THE INTENSITY OF THE BLAZE WAS FURTHER PEAKED WHEN IN FEBRUARY SHE EMBARKED ON A TRIP TO NEW YORK ALONGSIDE GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FOR THE ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE CELEBRATIONS.

SHE PLAYED A HIGHLY VISIBLE ROLE, PRESENTING AWARDS TO GRENADIANS WHO WERE RECOGNISED FOR THEIR ROLE IN NATION BUILDING.

MANY QUESTIONED WHETHER HER ACTIONS WERE SANCTIONED BY HER PARTY, TO WHICH SHE SAID, NO PERMISSION WAS NEEDED.

PARTY SOURCES TELL GBN THAT MRS. THOMAS HAS SMELLED SMOKE WHERE FIRE CONTINUES TO BURN AND THAT THE DRAMA IS NOT YET AT ITS PEAK AS SHE ALLUDED TO IN HER SOCIAL MEDIA POSTING.
