Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar came out
fighting on Monday night, sounding a stern warning
to former national security minister and Chaguanas
West MP Jack Warner that she is ready to do battle
in defence of the UNC.
Persad Bissessar, addressing the party s Monday
Night Forum in Warrenville said: "Losing is not an
The Prime Minister told constituents they have to
keep their party in government.
"Because this is not about an election in Chaguanas
West alone. This is about the future of your govern-
ment. This is about your future and your children s
future," she said.
She told supporters they have an important decision
to make and must use careful consideration when
choosing their MP.
Without mincing words, Persad-Bissessar urged
supporters not to be "fooled" by the "twisted logic"
being used by Warner.
She said: "He is telling you to support his new party.
He is saying his vision has not changed, but he wants
to fight against the UNC. I will not ask you to support
your party blindly. What I will ask you is to consider
who we are and why you have supported us over the
She also questioned Warner s motive to contest the
Chaguanas West by-election.
"There can be no doubt that the objective of the
former MP is to take Chaguanas West into the hands
of the PNM," she said.
"The objective is to give (Keith) Rowley Chaguanas
West. What the PNM could not do for 50 years openly,
they are now trying to do it through the back door."
She once again rejected Warner s proposal for his
party to join the PP coalition.
"There is no room," she said.
However, the Prime Minister issued a call for Warner
to withdraw his nomination if he is serious about
returning to the PP and the UNC.
"I say join the Government before July 29, withdraw
your nomination now! Clear you name and we will
welcome you back," she said.
"But if you fight the mighty UNC you cannot come
after you stone down the house of the rising sun to
seek solace in the very house you want to burn down."
Persad-Bissessar told supporters they had a battle
on their hands and if they do not want the PNM to
get Chaguanas West they have to "fight with every
muscle and every drop of sweat and blood to defend
your party---our UNC and your UNC candidate (Khadi-
The Prime Minister said it was time to bring the
"cabal talk" to an end once and for all.
Don't be fooled by
Jack's 'twisted logic'
