PM: 'Lying' Jack never helped me win election
"We met there (in Westmoorings) every Tuesday for almost three months to strategise and to plan for a PNM victory in 2015…Dr Rowley felt the votes were too close for a third candidate (in St Joseph) and that an ILP participation would cause the PNM to lose. Needless to say, not one of Dr Rowley's promises was kept and, over the last five years, I have watched as TT has become worse off rather than better. The rich have got richer, the poor got poorer and the middle class has dwindled." Warner claimed the meetings took place at the home of Kenny de Silva but did not say who this person is, but it is believed he was referring to a former NCC chairman.

The calypsonian and 2018 extempo champ said he wanted to give back to the people of the Diego Martin North East constituency, and that is why he entered politics. He will contest the seat on a Movement for National Development (MND) ticket.

Nicholas: TT still involved in road-paving politics
"In 2020 we are still involved in road-paving politics. It shows how really truly contemptuous the representatives feel about the constituents of Diego Martin that after five years, a PM in Diego Martin West, a finance minister in Diego Martin North/East and an absent MP in Diego Martin Central will, on the eve of election, try to mamaguy the population by paving roads."
