The SLP administration and their supporters need to focus on St. Lucia’s failing economy and unacceptable levels of unemployment, in addition to the scandalous Lambird’s issue and the St. Lucia tourist visas affixed to Cuban passports instead of meddling in the internal affairs of the UWP.
Whatever decisions taken by the constituency branch of Micoud South is an internal party matter. The decision to have Mr Chastanet represent the area without the consent of the SLP is a fait-a-complit and the fear within the SLP is understandable as those benefiting from the ongoing largesse have clearly understood that the days of wastage will soon be terminated.
The indiscriminate borrowings and construction of unnecessary edifices will soon become an event of the past and these funds will in future be used to educate the youth of the Nation at several vocational schools to provide the kids with skills which will permit them to earn a living and not remain on the block.
The Prime Minister should be ashamed to display a paid advertisement clearly demonstrating the millions he intends borrowing under the KENNYNOMICS banner as though this is something to brag about. If the PM had indicated that these millions of dollars borrowed and a reasonable return on those monies envisaged, one could understand the rationale.
Squandering such vast sums simply places St. Lucia into a more vulnerable situation than it already is. Hopefully the general elections will be held sooner rather than later to save us St. Lucians from an ongoing recession/depression. We simply have to revisit the findings of Mr Harris, the newly appointed Prime Minister of St. Kitts who disclosed that Mr Denzil Douglas a close friend of the SLP administration disbursed some $8 million two years prior to the general elections attempting to seek an advantage.
Interestingly enough, two well-known attorneys within the region received a total of EC$2.5 million in legal fees which makes us wonder how much our struggling St. Lucia has paid those attorneys thus far. This administration needs to take into account that the day of reckoning is around the corner.
