Jack meets constituents Thursday; promises 'mother of all speeches'

Jack Warner is holding a meeting on Thursday at the Pierre Road Ground in Felicity at which he has promised "the mother of all speeches".

The former National Security Minister and former chairman of the United National Congress (UNC) is still the MP for Chaguanas West. And he has said he owes it to his constituents to speak and explained "all".

Media have been speculating that he might be critical of the People's Partnership administration. However he has said he would continue to be supportive.

Internet listeners around the world can tune follow the meeting from any of these links:

So far the relationship between Warner and his Political Leader, Kamla Persad-Bissessar remains excellent and on a political platform Monday night she described him as "a highly industrious and productive member of the Government having served with distinction in the Ministries of Works and National Security".

And just before she left for Canada Tuesday for a 4-day official visit she said people all over the country are "hurting" because of Warner's departure from cabinet.

“Not only in his constituency, there are people everywhere, he was chairman of our party, he served the party well and there are many people who are hurt about what has happened. But Mr Warner took the high ground in the best Westminster tradition and I think we give him credit for that,” she said.

Warner has been one of the most productive and popular MPs in the country since he was first elected to Parliament in the 2007 general election, defeating the popular Manohar Ramsaran who was running against him as a member of the Congress of the People (COP).
In the 2010 general election he hardly ran a campaign, spending more time with his colleagues in different areas, helping them to win. When COP's Carloyn Seepersad-Bachan was at risk of losing the San Fernando West seat, it was Warner who intervened and took her into the most depressed areas and guaranteed she won.

In that election Jack received nearly 19,000 votes to the fewer than 2,000 that were cast for his PNM opponent.
