A Very Serious Suggestion

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.

Peter Josie.


  1. Surah Az-Zukhruf

    But the factions among them differed. Then woe unto those who do wrong from the doom of a painful day. (65)
    Await they aught save the Hour, that it shall come upon them suddenly, when they know not? (66)
    Friends on that Day will be foes one to another, save those who kept their duty (to Allah). (67)
    O My slaves! For you there is no fear this day, nor is it ye who grieve; (68)
    (Ye) who believed Our revelations and were self-surrendered, (69)
    Enter the Garden, ye and your wives, to be made glad. (70)
    Therein are brought round for them trays of gold and goblets, and therein is all that souls desire and eyes find sweet. And ye are immortal therein. (71)
    This is the Garden which ye are made to inherit because of what ye used to do. (72)
    Therein for you is fruit in plenty whence to eat. (73)

    Lo! the guilty are immortal in hell’s torment. (74)
    It is not relaxed for them, and they despair therein. (75)
    We wronged them not, but they it was who did the wrong. (76)
    And they cry: O master! Let thy Lord make an end of us. He saith: Lo! here ye must remain. (77)
    We verily brought the Truth unto you, but ye were, most of you, averse to the Truth. (78)
    Or do they determine any thing (against the Prophet)? Lo! We (also) are determining. (79)
    Or deem they that We cannot hear their secret thoughts and private confidences? Nay, but Our envoys, present with them, do record. (80)
    Say (O Muhammad): If the Beneficent One hath a son, then, I shall be first among the worshippers. (81)
    Glorified be the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Throne, from that which they ascribe (unto Him)! (82)

    NOTE: The class of Angels who administer the Hell are called Zabaniyahs under the Arc-angel MALIK – the denizens of Hell cry “Oh, Master….” they are addressing Malik. The cry of the people of Hell is not allowed to leave the Hell.

    Angels are created from the Electro Magnetic Spectrum/Light and Lucifer/Satan is created from that same medium in the micro waves section. Satan was NEVER an Angel; Angels can only do what Allah commands them, since they are created without Freewill. Satan comes from a class of Creation called JINN, which means that which is hidden. He has no power over you except to whisper evil suggestions into your mind. We are told in the Quran:

    Surah Ar-Rahman
    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
    The Beneficent (1)
    Hath made known the Qur’an. (2)
    He hath created man. (3)
    He hath taught him utterance. (4)
    The sun and the moon are made punctual. (5)
    The stars and the trees adore. (6)
    And the sky He hath uplifted; and He hath set the measure, (7)
    That ye exceed not the measure, (8)
    But observe the measure strictly, nor fall short thereof. (9)
    And the earth hath He appointed for (His) creatures, (10)
    Wherein are fruit and sheathed palm-trees, (11)
    Husked grain and scented herb. (12)
    Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny? (13)
    He created man of clay like the potter’s, (14)
    And the jinn did He create of smokeless fire. (15)
    Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny? (16)
    Lord of the two Easts, and Lord of the two Wests! (17)
    Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny? (18)
    He hath loosed the two seas. They meet. (19)
    There is a barrier between them. They encroach not (one upon the other). (20)


    Surah Al-Kahf
    And (remember) when We said unto the angels: Fall prostrate before Adam, and they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He was of the jinn, so he rebelled against his Lord’s command. Will ye choose him and his seed for your protecting friends instead of Me, when they are an enemy unto you? Calamitous is the exchange for evil-doers. (50)
    I made them not to witness the creation of the heavens and the earth, nor their own creation; nor choose I misleaders for (My) helpers. (51)
    And (be mindful of) the Day when He will say: Call those partners of Mine whom ye pretended. Then they will cry unto them, but they will not hear their prayer, and We shall set a gulf of doom between them. (52)
    And the guilty behold the Fire and know that they are about to fall therein, and they find no way of escape thence. (53)
    And verily We have displayed for mankind in this Qur’an all manner of similitudes, but man is more than anything contentious. (54)
    And naught hindereth mankind from believing when the guidance cometh unto them, and from asking forgiveness of their Lord unless (it be that they wish) that the judgment of the men of old should come upon them or (that) they should be confronted with the Doom. (55)
    We send not the messengers save as bearers of good news and warners. Those who disbelieve contend with falsehood in order to refute the Truth thereby. And they take Our revelations and that wherewith they are threatened as a jest. (56)
    And who doth greater wrong than he who hath been reminded of the revelations of his Lord, yet turneth away from them and forgetteth what his hands send forward (to the Judgment)? Lo! on their hearts We have placed coverings so that they understand not, and in their ears a deafness. And though thou call them to the guidance, in that case they can never be led aright. (57)
    Thy Lord is the Forgiver, Full of Mercy. If He took them to task (now) for what they earn, He would hasten on the doom for them; but theirs is an appointed term from which they will find no escape. (58)
    And (all) those townships! We destroyed them when they did wrong, and We appointed a fixed time for their destruction. (59)

  2. Poor Jab, when I dispensed penance to Monsieur Josie many decades ago; I said “climb a coconut tree at CoCoDan and pick 1 fresh coconut, then sit on the beach naked, say 12 Hail Marys -sip 1 teaspoon of the fresh picked l’eau coco in between each Hail Mary.
    Somehow Josie has bouts of selective hearing. Apparently, In this confessional vignette miscue, he heard l’eau cocoon .
    Since then, He remains terrified of silkworms, butterflies, caterpillars. Even his brief stint with active govt roles were affected.
    1- Sir, would you prefer to order 3 John Deere or 3 Caterpillar tractors for Beausejor ? “Dammit, it has to be Deere and that’s final”, he snarled .
    2- “Sir, the mistress wants to order matching PJ’s for that romantic weekend while attending the international conference, Harrod’s has a sale should I get silk or cotton? “Cotton will always be king next to my skin”, he replied.
    Recently, Mary Isaac has a stock of Coco Rico coconut soda imported from Puerto Rico. Her favorite beverage at lunch is 1 cup of pureed pulp of jelly coconut in a tall glass topped with 16 fl ozs of ice cold Coco Rico. So, when Mary invites Josie to a pow wow lunch and he is swirling his way too dry martini coyly, she raises her glass and in her best amicable patois says ‘ have some of my L’eau Coco to chase your bone dry Tangueray?”
    Will Josie’s response be:
    a) make a hasty excuse for using bathroom to avoid a display of panic attack
    b) inform Mary that he will swing around her place at 10:00 PM
    A recent tweety bird beaked that empress Reegohurt admires his eunuchoid traits for close proximity scheming sessions on the election trail 🙂
