Trinidad and Tobago is no longer a banana republic.....as of last night with Reuters news service confirming that Warner's son, and possibly Warner himself, are indeed under investigation, her vague press release in which she says she will wait on an official corroboration is just too hollow for words.
The Prime Minister spent last month in Haiti, right next to the US AG and even members of the FBI. Talk of Daryan Warner's detention in the US had begun since December 2012 on the day he was caught at the airport with an alleged lump sum of money he had failed to declare at customs....allegedly. And yet in February, with the US AG sharing the same meeting space as you, not a question was asked?
You'd think that we don't have diplomatic relations with the US....that they don't have an Embassy here. You'd also think that Kamla Persad-Bissessar is daft, or slow minded that she would still have someone with as much shadows over his head as Jack Warner still serving as a government Minister.
But, you see, we aren't a banana republic anymore...we are THE BANANA REPUBLIC.
In future when films are being made where the setting or crime taking place in a banana republic, it is Trinidad and Tobago's name that will be used. The film companies will spend their money and go somewhere safe, and name the location Trinitario...watch and see.
But the question we should be asking ourselves this morning isn't so much will Kamla fire Jack, or will the Prime Minister act on this latest report.
Rather ask yourself why is the PM not acting? Why is she continuing to keep Warner on as Minister of National Security? Is she protecting him....or is she really protecting herself?
And then ask yourself this....if the Prime Minister is putting herself, or her minister, before the good of the entire country....what does that make her?
At the time of writing, Communications Minister, Jamal "Insignificant Muslim Coolie" Mohammed has announced that the Cabinet....complete with COP members like Prakash Ramadhar and Carolyn Seepersad-Bachan....stands firmly behind Warner.
We in Full Dotish Mode this Easter Weekend, folks...find ah bobolee and beat it!
