WHILE the United National Congress has united with different political groups to fight the general election, the Congress of the People (COP) has set up a caravan to move throughout the country to unite the people, COP political leader Winston Dookeran says.
Referring to the caravan as a "Unity Safari", Dookeran said they were already seeing results.
"That is what is bringing people like economist Dr Patrick Watson and former House speaker Nizam Mohammed onto our platform. The unity drive is beginning to pay."
He was speaking at a public meeting at the Montrose Government School in Chaguanas on Tuesday. Both Dr Watson and Mohammed also addressed the meeting.
The UNC has joined forces with four smaller political groups-the National Alliance for Reconstruction (NAR), Democratic Party of Trinidad and Tobago (DPTT), National Democratic Party (NDP) and YEStt-in the hope of defeating the PNM in the upcoming general election.
But Dookeran remained defiant that his party would continue with its own agenda.
"While some (people) continue to talk about unity, we shall be the unity party of Trinidad and Tobago," he said, adding that the evidence of such would be seen in the next six weeks.
Now this cont eh bet he fockin dotish nah. Lard put ah hand.
What fockin safari he on. Like he touring Mt. fockin Kilimanjaro looking for baboons to support the COP or did he find "tabla head Nizam Mohammed and Dr. Patrick Watson on the fockin safari?
Every fockin jackass in the country pleading wid d leaders of all the opposing parties to the PNM to get together to defeat them.
This is the only group that is detemined not to join forces to win the election. They have said so over and over. So the rest of us are movin on... and dey heaping scorn on the effort.
What the UNC has done is to make an effort that demonstrates that they are willing to work with any group that is opposed to the PNM.
The COP on the other hand is fockin bent on providing the PNM with the government on ah silver platter.
Question is: Who benefits from this fockin split on the opposing sides?
PNM off course!
