"They going to get licks as if they ent christen ."
That strong (but curious) war cry was thrown at
the PNM by PP s Clifton De Coteau at UNC s Monday
night forum in Barrackpore.
The usually mild-mannered De
Coteau was in attack mode as were his
colleagues and boss visiting "the area
where the Ganges meets the Nile, with
both African and Indian brothers and
sisters," De Coteau said.
Featured act, Prime Minister Kamla
Persad-Bissessar arrived in a sea of
flashing blue vehicle lights. A slow meet-
and-greet walk through smiling sup-
porters left her security detail sweating with effort.
The people reached out and she, as always, reached
back easily. No surprise, therefore. The night s target
was again PNM leader Keith Rowley which PP pitched
as her opposite, playing on the "raging bull" per-
ception created by his former leader Patrick Man-
"Wrong and strong," added Persad-Bissessar to
the PP s roll out of its repertoire of Rowley rhetoric
along with other target, PNM s PRO Faris Al-Rawi.
"He (Rowley) even used the Shaggy Defence,
Wasn t Me (on the David West issue)," she said
quoting the Jamaican hip hopster s tune of the same
At meeting s end, the PM s relaxed tone indicated
her satisfaction with crowd turnout and energy levels.
UNC next Monday heads to St Joseph, a seat the
party lost in 2013 and is busily "working" now.
Barrackpore, where Monday s event was held, is
a way off from San Fernando East which the PNM
is now eyeing with some concern after the recom-
mended shift of boundaries in ten areas, San Fernando

East included, by the Elections and Boundaries Com-
PNM vice-chairman Colm Imbert said San Fer-
nando East had been weakened the most with the
loss of 1,000 pro-PNM actual votes (not electors),
due the introduction of three (UNC)
Oropouche East polling divisions and
transfer of two San Fernando East divi-
sions to San Fernando West.
"San Fernando East could turn into
a marginal. If those three Oropouche
divisions had been there in 2010 PNM
would have had 1,000 votes less. The
areas moved into San Fernando East
are very strategic. It includes unoccu-
pied HDC units, including from
Corinth," Imbert said.
"San Fernando West has been strengthened by
100 pro-PNM votes from the two added San Fer-
nando East divisions. "It s insufficient to win. That
seat will have to be won on merit," he added
In his Diego Martin North East, Imbert said the
impact was positive since 250 anti-PNM votes were
He said if his margin of victory was 450 in 2010,
it would now be 700. "But my seat is still close
though the chances of winning have improved." He
described other changes as inconsequential.
PNM San Fernando East officials said officers were
campaigning house to-house, especially in Corinth
with a voters list to detect any "house padding."
However, stated numbers may have
been in question at Tuesday s COP
Arima meeting where UNC MP Jairam
Seemungal, saying election were around
the corner, exulted at the "hundreds
of thousands" present. Some eyebrows
had a "hah?" moment. Couple smirks
Chairs were full at the Arima new
Government Primary School auditori-
But they covered little more about
three-quarters of space and guests
appeared a couple hundred rather than
Enthusiasm, tempo ed calypsoes and
flag waving however conveyed the vibe
of the attendance, a tad larger than the
previous week s St Augustine meeting,
all of which COP leader Prakash
Ramadhar said uplifted him.
Saying meetings cost more than COP
could afford, he appealed: "We need
each and every one. You carry a serious
responsibility to play your part... help
us. We can t do it alone."
Most interesting spin of the night
though,indirect acknowledgment of
COP s current ground floor status, was
MP Lincoln Douglas s observation: "The
COP has nowhere to go but up."
Next Tuesday s meeting at Diego
Martin will tell if that s possible.
