Neal Calls Out Mora; Says He Could Not Agree with Executive

Eldred Neal

Elsewhere in the newscast, you will hear Mora throw Neal under the bus for those unsavory remarks.  Neal, however, says that his counterpart has conveniently forgotten his role in that conversation and the derogatory comments he also made.  When asked about the perceived culture war, Neal told News Five he was only speaking to what he saw within the context of the Public Service Union.


Eldred Neal, President, Public Service Union

“Marvin, whilst amnesia has sat in and he now figures [that] somebody recorded, I know that Eldred and Marvin were there, joined by Lorelei and the only person you could have heard in the conversation was the three of us.  And in fact, the probing way in which he questioned or participated for the edited version suggests that there was some mal intent, and if the populace of this country want to believe that this gentleman here is a bigot, in any kind of way, based on that, then I am truly, truly apologetic and I am sorry.  And in fact I can’t change one’s mind but I want to ensure you that whilst the action to me is to discredit whatever I may say at this juncture.  In fact, they suggest in the letter, kindly remove yourself before the AGM and refrain from running again, suggests that there is something that I would have done that should not be tabled at the AGM and I am suggesting otherwise.”


Isani Cayetano

“Would you come forward boldly and say what that is, as opposed to merely making a suggestion?”


Eldred Neal

“By disclosing any matter as it relates to your union business would then put me in the same position as the letter that is suggested to be leaked, but it was purposely done.  If you gather and you sign a letter to give to your president, send it to my office and yet it’s released to the press and I don’t have that kind of office staff, so I can assure you that it was not leaked from the office, then who do you think are those behind it?”


Isani Cayetano

“You refer somewhere in this conversation that you had with these other two individuals to what you term a culture war.  Can you define that by your own terms, to understand…”


Eldred Neal

“The content, what were we speaking to, I was speaking primarily to the individuals who sat at the table.  For me, there is a cultural war at the table because no matter how obvious the ill was, I cannot find a way to convince these members to try to right the wrong, and you must understand that we are in the service business.  I’m a public servant; I’m the president of the public service, alright.  I’ve always served individuals.  At no time am I supposed to be in a position that should use my position for personal gain in any kind of way.  And if we would sit at that table and have lengthy dispute and one cannot even get these individuals who call themselves professionals to even call the issue out for what it is then something has to be wrong.  And that’s the cultural divide that I saw.”

    Neal, you need to learn your history African. I cannot see any visual difference between you and your Garinagu brethren! Are you still acting like the white boys’ negro in 2017? You are an African! Remember that! The original Creoles were not as dark as you; they had an obvious look of mixture between European and Africans! You do not even fit the creole look! You and all the Africans who still mistakenly hate your Garinagu brethren at the urging of your white colonial masters need to grow up, reflect on your common ancestry and work to mend a system that is crippling both of you! You sounded really silly!
