PORT OF SPAIN –  Independent Liberal Party leader Jack Warner apologised on Thursday night for “the wrongs imposed on this country in May 2010” when the People’s Partnership (PP) coalition came to power. He added: “I will have to correct the wrongs if it is the last thing I do before I go to my grave.”
Warner, along with Movement for Social Justice leader, David Abdulah and former Attorney General Ramesh Lawrence-Maharaj spoke to reporters following a, “tell all”, meeting hosted by Barrington “Skippy” Thomas who was the former adviser to sacked minister Dr Glenn Ramadharsingh. Earlier, the meeting had been disrupted by a group with placards.  
They were seemingly in support of the Government as they objected to Skippy’s statements about the Government and the Prime Minister.
Warner, who resigned from the PP last year, said: “I am just sorry because Basdeo Panday warned me about her you know,” as he referred to Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.
In a news release on Friday Warner commented on Thomas’ meeting stating, “although the incident was more than what I expected and was very alarming, I held my ground and I listened to Mr Barrington “Skippy” Thomas address.
“Having heard him it is quite clear that the mob was sent to the proceedings to disrupt the proceedings for fear of what Mr Thomas would disclose to the public. Also, it is my opinion that they were only able to do what they did because of the absence of [police] officers.  
“Had there been officers present they could not conduct themselves in the manner they especially did. At the end of the meeting, I saw members of the mob assembled in a corner and [were] paid.” (Express)
