Letters & Opinion

“IN their last days if it were possible even the elect would be fooled”… an adaptation of Holy Writ, from memory. To the many sensible and God fearing voters on the island, the question who should lead the United Workers Party (UWP) in the next general elections has finally been settled. For staunch UWP supporters that question was settled three years ago. The doubting-toms needed more proof. Did the last convention finally put this matter to rest for such toms? Not if Anthony’s Labour has its way. The ranting and raving of the failed St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) will not stop. The spotlight has however turned to the appointment of a playboy of unknown pedigree (that word again!) to represent Saint Lucia at an important international forum.

Thanks to the determination of a majority of UWP supporters one may now declare, it’s Allen Chastanet time. Others have had their time. Allen’s conclusive anointing last Sunday has set the failed SLP trembling and quaking in their shoes. The excessively corrupt who have used the SLP as a ‘legal corporate entity’ for profit maximization providing jobs for family, friends and their several women is fast coming to an end. To such greed Allen Chastanet is no longer ‘white;’ he is now a ‘bet noir’ who threatens to discover their hidden nest eggs. It’s no longer politics; it’s personal survival at all cost. And they are panicking.

Saint Lucians ought to be as concerned with the hidden nest eggs and the secrets the SLP government is determined to hide from them. Some secrets are not connected to nest eggs but are nonetheless as pernicious and diabolical. Take IMPACS for example, or the playboy’s appointment. What is known about these two by the public or by Ministers of the government?

Thankfully, Allen Chastanet’s hands have been strengthened to go for broke after this useless and corrupt SLP government. Chastanet must demand that the playboy’s appointment be rescinded immediately. He must be prepared to take to the streets until that playboy goes – period!

Allen Chastanet and his candidates must take the high ground, and lead the charge against failed SLP. He must bear in mind that it was Kenny Anthony who said that the next general elections will be a fight between his failed SLP and the Chastanet family? How he arrived at such an alignment of the forces is anybody’s guess. Surely, those with a modicum of democratic blood in their veins would by now realize that the SLP is mortally wounded and is afraid to face a pauperized and hurting electorate. To add insult to injury they continue to appoint square pegs in round holes. It must be embarrassing even to those square pegs, whose nouns and verbs are always at war with each other, to fit where they do not belong.

To their chagrin New Labour has discovered that the next general election is for the SLP government to show its report card to the electorate for evaluation and marking. The UWP election campaign must see to it that the SLP does not cheat and does not hide its report card. The electorate must demand answers to the government’s failure; while their lies and bluff not be allowed to take hold. Let the gods of vengeance spell their doom.

‘Oh discerning fate let the tolling of the election bell spell doom to the trembling hands of the nervous SLP leader.’ This refrain one imagines will fall from the lips of those who have been made to suffer under New Labour. Even the misguided who lined up under the deceitful banner now cry out for help from the gods of fate. And fate has decreed a new leader sworn to follow in the footsteps of the father of the UWP and the nation, rise to free the people from hard labour and lead them to prosperity and success.

Let us now pause and take a moment to peruse the report card of new labour. They promised transparency but delivered blinding smoke, falsehood and deceit. For this they get an ‘F’… fail! They criticized the idea of a value added tax (VAT), alluded to by the former government, calling it oppressive and anti-poor, yet introduced a 15% VAT soon after they were returned to office. Mark another ‘F’… fail! They promised an immediate injection $100,000,000.00 (one hundred million dollars) into the economy if they won the elections of 2011. It’s now four years and not a word, not a dollar, not one cent. Mark another ‘F’… fail! They have injected more economic pain and misery than previously experienced. The economy is unable to get off its death bed and even the IMF is afraid to touch that feeble sick man of the Caribbean. Mark another ‘F’… fail! Did someone say ‘doctor, heal thyself’?

But that’s not all! These fools found an exit (departure tax) imposed by the former UWP government on persons exiting the island via Hewanorra Airport. They stopped it and instead imposed a tax on water, thereby hurting the poor, who must use water every day, and hardly ever travel via Hewanorra Airport. Smart! Very smart – another ‘F’ fail! The government would today have completed the redevelopment of Hewanorra airport with the proceeds from that tax. There is more. The same fools are planning to hand over that same international airport to foreigners we know not; another ‘F’… Fail! The details of the proposed deal remain shrouded in mystery – another secret which Allen Chastanet and his UWP must discover and reveal soonest. And who can forget Rochamel? Another ‘F!’

Then of course there was the insult to the vice president of the USA, and the secret appointment of a representative to ALBA and/or Venezuela at that same time which long remained a secret. And who can forget that smart American who had taken the sister island of Grenada to court for the same reasons he has Saint Lucia even though his precious drilling equipment for black gold is yet to arrive on the island – mark two ‘Fs’… fail! We may wish to compare this to recent news out of St. Kitts where a French company is soon to commence oil explorations.

On closer examination one must ask whether Saint Lucia is experiencing a curse under this clueless government. And did cluelessness extend to an error in the correct constitutional authority to sign an agreement for exploring minerals and oil deposits in Saint Lucia territory? As if the list of misery to which new labour has subjected this island was not enough, there has not been an audited report of the government finances for longer than one cares to recall. Why did the government challenge the long standing practice that the leader of the opposition chairs the parliamentary finance sub-committee? In addition, the IMPACS fiasco will not soon go away. The island has suffered the loss of one of the best liked and respected police commissioners arising from the secret IMPACS report. How many more ‘Fs’ are these? What is the Government hiding and why?

Together the above can best be described as ‘Labour’s Painful Secrets.’ Having failed to deliver their wild promises they now resort to a regime of silence, hiding. Their ‘in-your-face’ public meetings further emphasize Labour’s painful failure. They speak and say nothing. They act as if they are the opposition. Enough! Go now, losers to where you belong … in the opposition. Go now, please!


  1. Your opening line bespeaks the HYPOCRISY of the ANTI-Christ.
    That is, your holy denomination and all its ABRIDGED Misals glorify DOING GOOD DEEDS as a way to Heaven. This ties in with the doctrine of selling INDULGENCES o’er the centuries.
    BUT Bible deep (the SElect) readers know that not even Mother Theresa is assured a place among the elect.
    PEETAR ,
    you do show how smart you may appear by throwing the concept of ELECT around-
    BUT you FAIL to give an insight upon its implications for your denomination’s doctrines on SAINTS- and their assumed automatic PASS – GO monopolization of the Pearly Gates
    -(ah MONOPOLY & Capitalism- your master Chaz ought to be an expert at MONOPOLY-the game and market varieties, n’est pas?).
    When the denizen’s of Hell begin to DEPARLE about the little understood concept of the ELECT –
    ole boy “baille fini, violin en sac”, oui.
    Your Anti Christ hypocrisy at the very start of your monologue (the elect is not understood by the vast majority of your denomination’s lay congregations)
    in much the same way your party execs do not explain your master’s TEA PARTY infused REAGONOMICS manifesto……..

  2. Peetar
    Backwards, to your repeated drop mapewee about some alleged playboy appointment.
    Lets call it your conclusion (we shall categorize your middle ( garbage) subsequently.
    Is that not REGRESSION (perchance in support of your ID-Freud) or hypocrisy based on your UWP chairman’s edict, post Mary’s venomous spit ball @ MP King, –
    about raising the bar of etiquette? ☺
    And most folks assume that being a Don Juan is a rite of passage given our love of Bacchanal ☺
    Peeter given the long term status of your amputated genitalia, isn’t your occasional toss salad rumpus far more erotic if not titillating than what is widel accepted as a StLucian rite of passage, i.e., playboy.
    Pete ole buoy even your CONFABULATIONS are as LIMP as your VIRILITY.
    Apparently, your decade old MID-LIFE CRISIS was inundated with mean spirited JEAlousSy –emphasis on lousy louse!!!!
    The virile SAGABOYS must make you wish for younger days- but even then you needed surrogate sexual scaffolds, n.est pas?
    Ah, malheuresment, the dreadful discontent of a peashooter / peep-squik Hermaphrodite.
    That dsyfunctional probus of yours accounted for so many lost SJ Convent bikini party opportunities, oui.
    Oh, how you must have squirmed as you SMC classmates reported on their weekend conquests, ongoing trophies at Vigie, Choc, Reduit and all the narrow coves in between….
    Consequently, you’ve channeled all that dam up erotic silt from your scrotum, into a cantankerous plume and grumpy oral cavity.
    Very soon you will need cold water therapy followed by soothing strait jacket sessions to cope with your demented -demonic frustrations.
    To buffer the chagrin, Drinking and pills have created the purrfect chronic storm within your psyche, oui!
    Next the middle or body of your RIGOBERT AMBULANCE CHAS-ing style-
    of this putrid article.

  3. But before we continue our streaming analysis of your garbage pile –
    a brief siesta to celebrate your VIRILE nemesis- Dr Khttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7B3BFNujtVQenny Anthony
    St lucias best prototype of Shaka Zulu -at the helm of state-
    you did frown upon his modest secondary educational institute preparation for University success – at one point the ONLY secondary ed for ALL the entire Southern parishes including Micoud.:
    Presenting the words of the SLP for all the People:

  4. Peetar/
    Did you like that anthem Jacob Milled for the SLP
    We shall not allow the curse of GREED – to formulate our national culture !
    (I am aware that your witch partner, disagrees).
    On a minor note-
    Remember to siphon the usual Sunday ration of l’eau benni from the Minor Basilica, for her ritual séance.

    1. Such wit DASSAULT MIRAGE ! I owe you much for your contribution to my health – laughter is indeed good medicine.

      You know DASSAULT MIRAGE, I was told if I told a lie I would be given ‘Glo-beyni’ which would cause my belly to explode – just imagine the filth in that brew, as negroes who did not wash their hands after sodomy, dip it in the ‘Glo-beyni’ and anoint their sweaty bodies with this contaminated brew. Devil worship mem.

  5. 1712 – 2012
    The 300 year curse of Willie Lynch:
    Whether the curse and/or the letter are real or imagined the symptoms of Willie Lynch have been devastating.
    Willie Lynch said I have a foolproof method for controlling your black slaves. I guarantee every one of you that if installed correctly it will control the slaves for at least 300 years. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I have outlined a number of differences among the slaves and make the differences bigger. I use fear, distrust and envy for control.
    These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this
    simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “age” but it’s there only because it starts with an
    “A.” The second is “COLOR” or shade, there is intelligence, size, sex, size of plantations and status on plantations,
    attitude of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assure you that distrust is stronger than trust and envy stronger than adulation, respect or admiration. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self refueling and self generating for hundreds of years, maybe
    thousands. Don’t forget you must pitch the old black Male vs. the young black Male, and the young black Male against the old black male. You must use the dark skin slaves vs. the light skin slaves, and the light skin slaves vs. the dark skin
    slaves. You must use the female vs. the male. And the male vs. the female. You must also have your white servants and overseers distrust all Blacks. It is necessary that your slaves trust and depend on us. They must love, respect and trust only us. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. If used intensely for one year, the slaves themselves will remain perpetually distrustful of each other.
    Thank you gentlemen
    Lets Make a Slave

  6. Black Lives Matter/
    Merci for sharing:
    Let’s make a slave is so evident among folks in the large melting pot city of nouveau avant garde.
    The above, is very good knowledge to help maintain my coping abilities in the great metropolis.

  7. josie judas !

    You quoting bible to make your Vermont deadly? this will not work !
    the devil also quoted bible to Jesus when he was trying to temp him
    hear your father the devil: He shall give his angles charge concerning you: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. (St. Matthew 6)
    Judas josie your bible also say : if any man hate his brother without a reason he is a murderer and the love of the father and the truth is int in him. so all your quotation of the bible with the intent of fooling people who want to read you bullshit.
    judas josie you must study your life long story by reading from your bible the book of Genesis 4:i-15.
    O judas josie ? you are a scrap and a curse of the homo sapiens.who can never rise again in the politics of this country. so keep having all your dirty wet-dreams about your massa allan.

    the uwpppp are all finish “fine”
    Kenny is the one chosen by God to lead his people to victory come next election.
    this is already written in the books of heaven.

    Some people who read you bull don’t even know about plywood city?
    you judas josie was one of the leaders of this catastrophe.

  8. Regret and jealousy are hard things to have and the possessed behave in unpredictable ways. Here is the case of a firebrand fool who wasted his life and his potential by blowing smoke up etoile’s loyal soldiers butt for years. He lived off a government check most of his life for doing diddly squat for the country except being loud and paying for shots of rum for the lesser fortunate. Now that the public has seen his con game he goes after everybody who’s not accommodating his blackmail. The truth is the only thing he ever had a was big loud uncontrollable mouth combined with a lack of shame that was mistaken by a largely uneducated populace for smarts….Well let’s see, Josie you still have a few years to live ma be you will accomplish something useful for St. Lucia before you die apart from incessant braying; if not perhaps the grim reaper can do you a favor and give you chance for a rapid reincarnation into something more worthwhile.

  9. JAY
    rapid reincarnation into something worthwhile?

    JAY !
    there is sweet-f+*+8-all this serpent-seed can be worthwhile about
    he will never be reincarnate?
    he had all his chances to repent but because of pride which was found in him he was cast-down from his high horse.

  10. Josie the fallen star! You have proved and continue to prove yourself to be so dangerous! One who is so informed and experienced like you should know it is impossible to find and individual who has no faults. This is precisely how you try to portray Golden Balls. For some reason this man can do no wrong in your eyes. It has always been said when people change they always move from one extreme to another. You are a typical example of that assertion! I wonder if we in St. Lucia have seen your complete metamorphosis.
