Election message: ‘Is Jack dey fraid’
The rain had very little to do with the poor voter turnout. The persons who voted, were going out there to vote, come rain or come shine. The introduction of the goat on stage wearing a Partnership yellow jersey said more about the “sender’’ in this 99th hour of advertising—that they had nothing left to offer the electorate but more picong. The ILP brought on to themselves “wetting’’ after “wetting’’ after “wetting’’.
The leader of the ILP must now admit to the fact that he is perhaps viewed as the chief cook and bottle washer for his party and all other members are mere window dressing. The unexpected, almost total rejection of the ILP says “Is Jack dey ’fraid.’’
The millions spent by the People’s Partnership and the ILP on extolling non existent gains (including the box drains) made me consider putting any personal cash savings into a shoe box under my bed. “Who else money dey spending but yours and mine?”
Many would say that the electorate has returned to racial voting. Not so. The electorate is asking for more proof that it is financially safe, that there will be a more equitable piece of the pie for all, before jumping from the frying pan into the fire.
In true blue Trini political style, it remains significantly important that we ride with the party that can win King of the Bands, Queen of the Bands, Band of the Year and the People’s Choice.
