Carrington sees victory in real poll
St Michaelâ€ˆWest MP Michael Carrington says the just released CADRESâ€ˆpoll showing a six per cent swing against the ruling party, does not impact on him and, “polls or no polls”, he will be back to serve another term.
Carrington, Speaker of the House of Assembly, told Friday’s gathering at the Democratic Labour Party’s (DLP) headquarters in Belleville, St Michael, where he delivered the weekly lunchtime lecture, that the “most significant poll is the poll which takes place on election day”.
Before an audience that included former senators Derek Alleyne and Tennyson Beckles, Carrington said he had done his homework over the last four years in the riding.
“I have done my work in the constituency of St Michael West. I have represented the people of St Michael West with every sinew in my body and I expect to be rewarded, polls or no polls, with their support in the next general election.” (MK)
