When expectations surpassed intelligence

Minister of Agriculture, Land and Marine Resources, Senator Arnold Piggott, says there is no food crisis in Trinidad and Tobago.

His comments come as supermarket shelves nationwide are bare of flour and rice, which have been in short supply and escalating in cost, prompting some level of panic buying from consumers.

"I wouldn't like us to say that we have a crisis in food in Trinidad and Tobago, because I don't know that we do. I am not aware that we have a crisis at this time. What we have been doing is seeking to prepare such that we don't find ourselves in a crisis.

Obviously another one from whom expectations far surpassed intelligence.

By the way, wasn't there a duncey also named Piggott? Are they related, any one know?
