At a meeting in Debe on Tuesday, Persad-Bissessar said Warner and People's National Movement (PNM) leader Dr Keith Rowley are a "tag team", and she will not go along with their plan to distract from the real issues of the general election campaign.

"No doubt you have detected I am fed up of the gruesome twosome of Rowley and Warner, and tonight I want to serve notice that I have no intention of engaging in their script, in their play, in their comedy, in their soap opera. I have none, no intention," said Persad-Bissessar, as the audience applauded.

"I serve notice further I will not respond to the lies and the fabrication coming from Mr Warner, and every one of those I will place in the hands of my lawyers, who will deal with him in the court of law. That is the one place he 'fraid, the court of law, but he cannot escape it. He will have to come in to that court of the land," she added.

"I repeat my point. I serve notice to you and to all the media and to all the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago: I will not be distracted, I will not be engaged in the script, in the game and in the play of Warner and his tag team Rowley.

"Instead, I will focus on the priorities, on the policies and the programmes to bring up Trinidad and Tobago into the new Trinidad and Tobago," she said.
