I am no hunter but the obvious lesson of hunting is that you do not go after the ducks that are already dead. As a result of my last article, “You can’t win with those party hacks”, a skewed party hack accused me of being skewed. “You claim independent opinions – but this article is overly wrought with skewered political bias”, he said.
I just thought I would give some context to my last article. For a group claiming to be “aiming for progress” SLAP- St Lucia Aiming for Progress, the facebook group is infested with SLP operatives. I am told that that should not come as a surprise if one look at the obvious acronym.
The articles or postings that get the most mileage in the group are those “politically skewed ones”. Be sure if you write anything averse about Pope Anthony or the SLP government the termites will bite, they will come to try to tear you apart.
It was against this background that I wrote. And so I am a UWP operative. I am accused of being paid from a UWP purse. Oh, Lord! You just can’t win with those party hacks. We are consumed by politics on this miniscule of pomp, we call an island. They want to tell Timothy Poleon how he should conduct his programme; they want to write the script for him. They bash our local newspapers. You just can’t win with those party hacks. And I rather suppose the reaction would be the same if the UWP were in power and I had posted in United Pac (check out the name), something critical about a governing UWP administration. You just can’t win with those party hack.
The commentator seems to know something I don’t. “– as if you are in prostrated submission to Massa Chas- for a political nomination in upcoming elections……..n’est pas?”In answer to your question, “Non Monsieur!” I do not like Allen Chastanet and his tactics. To some that is an anomaly. You don’t like Kenny and you don’t like Chastanet. But for now I will not go after dead ducks. I will continue to expound on the proponents of the independent model; the way out of this doldrum that partisan politics has got.
