If it is true that Mr. Warner was never asked to resign as the Member of Parliament, then Mr. Warner’s resignation only works to serve himself and not the people. If he is so certain of their support, there was no need to seek a fresh mandate.
Instead of the country focussing on its developmental needs, we are now in a position where the country is now in election mode and efforts are concentrated there.
It is very much noteworthy that even after his resignation he continuously vowed that he will never betray the Prime Minister or the UNC. He continually chimes “I am UNC and UNC I will remain. I am UNC and with the UNC is where my heart will always be. I love my party but you my constituents, I love you more”.
It seems as though this is really a bad case of loving so much that you hurt the people you love.
The reality is that a lot of the constituents of Chaguanas West feel betrayed by their former Member of Parliament. It’s disheartening when one man can bring a whole country to a state of instability just to prove a point. Is this really country before self?
Has the hero been reduced to zero?
