In the interest of Saint Lucia, and to educate others like me who support Allen Chastanet as political leader of the United Workers Party (UWP), I would like to put two questions to those who say, ‘Chastanet must go.’
The first question is, do you think the next elections will be fought between the Chastanet family and the SLP or between the UWP and SLP? Question two: If Chastanet goes, who would Kenny Anthony like to lead the UWP? Save your breath! The answer is not Ubaldus, or Sarah, or Mary (Isaac) or Guy, the pit bull or, anyone else who can mobilize the country and vote him out. Now, choose and make Kenny’s day!
You saw who led the protest against high fuel prices, right? Kenny has still not recovered! Chastanet demanded that he reviews gas prices every month and like an obedient little boy, (or is it like a house ‘niggar’); gas prices are reviewed every three weeks, thanks to Allen Chastanet! In answer to the first question, my guess is that the cunning dissembler would say ‘no comment.’ Do you think Kenny will choose to fight someone who would defeat him at the next general elections? You may dislike him if you wish but Kenny Anthony is not that stupid to take on the Chastanet family, even with people like Chagoury in his corner.
By the way, do you know why he appointed Michael Chastanet Ambassador at large, during his first term in office? Still, the fear of Allen Chastanet is genuine. There is a medical expression for such fear, but why bother you further. I could not end without reminding you that in every democratic country, even those without a Nobel Laureate, the electorate tends to vote on the performance of the government and on other issues of national importance such as unemployment and excessive taxation. Saint Lucians will not allow anyone, or their agents, to change the conversation or to dictate the elections agenda, this time.
