      Maybe, he will get work from Sheri Veronica since he and/or his followers, allegedly, used her platform to smear Kirk Humphrey’s name and reputation.

      He should resign from NUPW give up his Government job, Fire his campaign manager, Run way Saddis and Lead Pipe or go on a sabbatical.

    Deborah Bennett if Mia’s backing couldn’t buy him the St Michael South seat do you really think she has enough money to win in St John? I think not.

      St John may be ready for change (which I highly doubt) but that change certainly isn’t Asokore Beckles. Maybe if the BLP had kept someone like Hudson Griffith pounding the ground then they would stand a chance but they basically discarded him after the 2011 by-election.

    Ivy -Anne as usual good comments, i know that this Beckles chap must be so hurt all now, after all, he was one of the persons who was using his allegiance in another area to exert pressure on the Government along with his cohorts,well i am sure he now realizes that it did not pay off and he was only a pawn in the bigger scheme of things.

    Can’t serve two masters at the same time. It is either the Trade Union or politics. Stop using the workers to advance self- interest. It Is my opinion, Asokore should have distanced himself from the Union in pursuance of his political ambition.
