THIS is how I imagine the Big Brother would have addressed a more hilarious and pointed ‘QueekQuak’ in his no holds barred Crusader. It would be in specific reference to the uncontrolled outburst by Dr. Kenny D. Anthony while addressing a meeting of red mealy bugs in the western villages. I was quite taken aback to witness the little man – Dominic Fedee – who had wrought such consternation and fear in the heart of the substantial body girth of the SLP leader.
That was the lowest the party leader had fallen. And it had me thinking. Had I been a voter at the UWP candidate selection process for Canaries/Anse-la-Raye, I may well have voted for Hermangild Francis because of my deep belief that Saint Lucia needs a serious military-minded disciplinarian at or near to the centre of its government. I was not too dismayed with the Francis loss because I remain optimistic that a seat can be found for him in the Castries basin.
It turns out that I now fully support the young Fedee, a young ‘David’ who has put so much fear in ‘Goliath.’ Such an outburst was unbecoming of one who has been prime minister for over fourteen years. Perhaps Kenny’s problem may be that, he has been accused of working at the CARICOM Secretariat in Guyana, was a Law lecturer in Barbados and is married to someone from Trinidad. But wait! That ought not to be a problem. The real problem may be that he has not rid himself of the mud of Saltibus and RivereDoree. A great pity indeed! It is now past high time that Saint Lucia rises from such clinging mud and desperation for political power.
