Saga unfolds all around 'Action Jack'
Guaranteed to get much, much worse before it settles down, the current imbroglio over "who knew what when; who saw who; who met who; where, when and why" that is currently taking place between "Minister of Everything and their Brother" Jack Warner and normally reserved and sedate Port of Spain Mayor Louis Lee Sing is quickly picking up momentum.
The cast of characters expands to include an Attorney General as chief defender, a Chief of Defence Staff as mime, an acting Commissioner of Police as recalcitrant contributor, a big-mouth trade unionist as witness, two goats from Central and an out of work duck.
Promising to deliver lots of entertainment for at least the immediate future, onlookers are advised to stock up on their popcorn as we get to the bottom of just how and why some illustrious members of our gangster fraternity can summon such a high-powered ensemble to their piece.
The biggest questions to answer all have to do with the man at the centre, "Action Jack" himself, and the tangled web of inconsistent, deflective misdirections he has woven up to this point.
Thinking people everywhere are going to want to ask questions, but I advise them to wait a bit as more and more of the saga gets unfolded here and, quite possibly, in the highest courts of the land.
Stay very in tuned.
