Playing to the gallery while country suffers
Mouth open, ‘tory jump out, and when you living in glass houses don’t pelt stone. These two time-honoured maxims adequately describe the latest salvo in the acrimonious break-up between Jack Warner and the Kamla Persad-Bissessar-led People’s Partnership administration. The split was concretised with the launching of the Independent Liberal Party formed by Warner, who has joined those in opposition to the PP coalition.
One of the main weapons in his fight with the PP is to aggressively accuse some of the main players in the regime, his former cabinet colleagues, of being corrupt and went a step further by saying during the current budget debate that the PP was the most corrupt government ever to walk the corridors of power in T&T.
Apart from threats to sue the former Fifa head honcho, the PP has been treating rather nonchalantly the accusations levelled by Warner until the debate, when housing minister Dr Roodal Moonilal fired back with accusations of his own against his political opponent. In attempting to give Warner some of his own medicine, Dr Moonilal said Warner family members benefited handsomely under the PP government and went on to describe some of these “benefits.”
