LOL at that big snake Jack Warner.

Warner: PNM win a victory for ILP

Tuesday, September 8, 2015

Mission accomplished.

This was the response of Independent Liberal Party (ILP) leader Jack Warner late last night after the PNM won the 2015 general election.

Although Warner’s ILP lost all 23 seats it contested, he was victorious when he showed up at his Chaguanas East constituency office after 11 pm.

Warner said a victory for the PNM was a victory for the ILP for the two parties had one common mission; getting rid of former prime minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

As for how he felt about not winning any seats, he said: “So what? You win some, you lose some.”

Warner gave himself a large measure of credit for the People’s Partnership’s loss in the election.

“At the end of the day, I made Kamla in 2010 and I broke her in 2015,” he said triumphantly.

“She will never see another government in our collective lifetime,” he vowed. “The cabal is dead.”

Warner said since 2013 he has been relentlessly attacking Persad-Bissessar in Parliament, in his Sunshine newspaper and on the political platform.

As for his own political career, Warner said that would be his last hurrah.

He said the ILP would now discuss the way forward and was looking to pass on the baton to a new leader.

Commenting on his party’s loss, Warner said he felt the campaign period was too long and that put the smaller parties at a disadvantage.

Smaller parties did not have the kind of funding that the larger parties had to sustain them to the end of the campaign, he added.

He also admitted that it was the most grueling campaign he ever fought.

He said he chose to contest Chaguanas East because his hometown, Longdenville, was in that constituency.

A small group of sombre ILP supporters who were assembled around a television set outside the office, broke into victorious shouts after the PNM was declared the winner.

“The PNM for life,” a man shouted.

So Jack actually split the vote?
Or is it because PNM had a higher turnout than last time?

Anyone has a vote break down?

Jack did not split the PNM vote and many PNM people who voted for the PP/UNC in 2010 realised their grave mistake and went back to voting PNM.

I think not.

IMHO PNM is different to the PP.
The PNM in 2010 had some perceived corruption by one or two minsiters but the whole government was not totally corrupt like the PP/UNC seems to be.
Also almost every PP/UNC minister became a millionare during the past 5 years. I can't think of any PNM ministers who became millionaries during the PNM's reign during their last term before they got voted out in 2010.

The PNM under Dr Keith Rowley has a lot of new people and seem to have upgraded themselves from where they were in 2010 to make themselves electable again.

PNM have a lot of work to do to turn things around seeing the economic hole the UNC/PP has carried the country down into over the past 5 years.

Yeap! He is a Trini and that is what most Trinis do for carnival.
This is no big deal to most real Trinis which is part of the reason why he won the elections.
