THE new Saint Lucia that is being built is a rattling nightmare which we must all wakeup from. It is unsettling.

We are about to hit the iceberg but all the apologists, accomplices, the elites, the financiers, the lettered, the stewards and the stewardesses and the captain of the Lucianic are having a merry time to our eventual demise if we do note change course.

All it takes is three UWP parliamentarians to cross the floor. Then again, it does not have to come to that. All we need is an overthrow of the captain of the ship before is sinks.

The UWP administration can save itself by appointing another among themselves as Captain. The operatives are well aware of the ease of transition and that is why they are in defence mode.

They are running helter skelter. The Knee jerk reaction reminds me of an article by Michael Chastenat called “Leadership Qualities” written in response to an article I had written a few days prior. Those of you who follow this column will know what I refer to.

A few pronouncements that I have seen expressed by Michael Chastenat has caused more that my eyebrows to rise. I had to wonder who was the prime minister, Allen or Michael?

I along with many others had forewarned that “ultimate power corrupts ultimately” and the mix of political and economic power was bad. It is where we were at in slavery. This dynasty must end and it does not have to take a bloody revolution.

I will be glued to my TV screen to see who the traitors are, the traitors of the people, not the party. I can careless about da party. I will see if Chastenat was telling the truth when he said that crossing the floor is in our blood. This once, I wish that he can be proven true.

The signs are on the wall. When ministers come before you and tell you “it is a cash flow issue” that’s a sign. I have been waiting for a payment from a statutory organization since june and they keep telling me that government has not released the funds as yet.

That’s a sign. When ministers come on your television and say that they are unaware of details of impending projects that are to disfigure the face of Castries, that’s a sign.

When about 10000 people take to the streets to demonstrate, that’s a major sign. I want to remind our sitting members of parliament to take again at the oath of office and see whether they have betrayed it and if they have to make amends.

There is word of first time MPs vouching not to run a second term, even if that would qualify them for a pension, (no thanks to Dr Anthony). Something is drastically wrong. I will end this here with a quote that I have used before from Haile Selassie.

“All throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph” I look forward to that vote of no confidence, whenever it is called.
