Jack set for the big attack
Obviously another State of Emergency would be unwelcome, so the Prime Minister, using her common sense, appointed the next best thing down from a State of Emergency—Minister Jack Warner—to head National Security. As Minister Warner might himself say, "I have no problem with that".
Any rumoured objections to this important appointment have fallen on deaf ears. Minister Warner has been operating as "the only life in the Partnership party" for over two years. It is a bit too late to bring up his unfinished alleged FIFA mis-steps. With 200 homicides and bodies mounting, even as the clock ticks, drastic measures come into play.
Jack Warner is no amateur when coming to dealing with the media. Shy is not the description for our newest National Security Minister.
I can foresee Minister Warner having weekly press conferences and if necessary, daily meetings out in the war zones located in North, Central and South Trinidad. Some press briefings might start at 4 a.m. or 5.30 a.m. or even earlier.
Journalists are forewarned.
Because his reputation as a "fixer of problems" precedes him, much will be expected. Will he be able to deliver? There is no one else with his tenacity of purpose and as for his naysayers, "man, they could say what they want."
The police will have more to fear from Mr Warner than the bandits.
All who like to play sick and cannot work, be afraid. Be very afraid.
