By Ian Francis
Public policy, legislative changes and other decision making mechanisms by governments are often subject to ridicule, misinterpretation, apathy and misinformation by those who should understand and articulate why these changes were necessary.
Ian Francis resides in Toronto and is a frequent contributor on Caribbean affairs. He is a former Assistant Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Grenada and can be reached at email@example.com
Unfortunately, there is the existence of a current regional initiative involving the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), the governments of Grenada and St Vincent. Suffice to say, the prime minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines remains one of the region’s most pragmatic, committed and forward looking prime ministers as it relates to regional integration and sustainability of small states.
It is also very enticing and appreciative to know that Governor Dwight Venner of the ECCB recognizes the problems and challenges of small states and saw it necessary to establish a rainy day reserve fund that member organizations can access in the case of recurrent expenditure problems. Governor Venner and his team must be commended for this initiative and it clearly shows the competence and visionary of this important regional institution.
The current economic decline in Grenada should not be a secret, although administration officials continue to paint a different picture. With increasing youth unemployment, rapid decrease in the quality of life for Grenadians, uncertainty in meeting public servants’ payroll, late payments to suppliers and vendors and government’s demonstrated inability and capacity to move the nation forward that will increase the socio-economic situation has reached a climax and no new changes are anticipated for the future.
Given the above challenges, it should not be a surprise to anyone that the administration will pursue a path of desperation, especially when it realizes that there will be a shortfall in honouring recurrent expenditures, which will only spill over in anger and further despair of the Grenada electorate. The Thomas administration was recently encumbered with some of the above challenges and had no other alternative but to seek the assistance of the ECCB and the government of St Vincent.
In my humble and honest view, the Grenada administration responded to its critical situation by tapping into the generosity of a small state institution and government. They both must be commended for their positive response and critics are obligated to take a deep second look at the circumstances.
With the advent and access to information technology tools, it is always likely that the above initiatives will come to the forefront. Unfortunately, many end users with instant access to technology tools will endeavour to put forward their weak and misguided interpretation, as recently seen on an electronic medium regularly utilized by Grenadians and other Caribbean nationals. The postings were pathetic, ill-conceived, silly and showed a total misunderstanding and disregard about the notion and understanding of small state problems.
It was extremely difficult for me to express the above views when the Commonwealth of Nations in their 1979 Heads of Commonwealth Nations meeting in Zambia adopted a resolution on small states challenges and the need for the More Developed Countries to be responsive. Interestingly enough, the resolution was proposed by former prime minister Bishop and received unanimous support from countries like Canada and Australia.
From all the information available, credit must be given to the Government of St Vincent for coming to the aid of Grenada. Prime Minister Gonsalves’ action must be seen in the context of one small state assisting another. Such a response must also be seen in Gonsalves’ long and historical perspective on regionalism and integration. While I have not had the opportunity to converse with my beloved Comrade on this matter, I have no doubt that the sentiments and understanding that I have advanced are likely to be aired by the Comrade Prime Minister.
With fairness to the Thomas administration and given my growing concerns about the administration’s governance practices, there is nothing wrong with the action that was taken. On the other hand, Burke and his officials could have been more transparent by explaining to Grenadians the economic situation and why it was necessary to pursue the ECCB and government of St Vincent path.
There are many wild speculations about the role of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) general secretary in this matter. After carefully checking many regional sources, it is fair to conclude that Burke and his Permanent Secretary Timothy Antoine, who is a respected and competent manager, are the two administration officials who worked with Venner and Gonsalves to firm up an agreement. ALBA or Venezuela was not involved and the three OECS member states that are members of ALBA were not involved in these arrangements.
In conclusion, ACP small states are facing many challenges, including Grenada. The very unfortunate situation in this state is related to a planning deficit, mutinous conduct of certain administration officials, unfilled promises and useless allegations against the opposition of Dr Mitchell. Grenadian voters have told the administration that they do not wish to hear more of the same verses that were preached commencing in July 2008. They are hurting, in despair and charting an unknown future. They want the NDC administration to fix the problem or retreat to the New National Party (NNP).
Once again in the true spirit of the regional integration movement, I salute Comrade Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
here to receive daily news headlines from Caribbean News Now!
Isn't it ironic that NON-VINCENTIANS like Ian Francis, Dr Isaac Newton, Rebecca Theodore etc could recognize PM Ralph Gonsalves contribution to regional integration, while Vincenians like Brian Alexander, Markie Spring and Allan Palmer are incapable of recognizing this quality in our Prime Minister?
Ian Francis quite accurately described the Comrade as being "one of the region's most pragmatic, committed and forward-looking Prime Ministers..."
Sadly, some Vincentians are so HATE-FILLED, specifically against the Prime Minister, that they are unable to identify any of his positive initiatives.
Unfortunately, "a Prophet has no honour in his own country," and in addition to those bad-minded individuals mentioned above, there are those like Ricardo Francis, Lenford O'Garro, Richard Huggins and Stephen Huggins who simply turn a blind eye to reality.
Make no mistake about it, Ian Francis is going to receive significant criticism for simply complimenting Ralph Gonsalves. Fortunately, Francis has a thick skin, and could take it.
Fortunately as well, with their criticism of Francis, they will expose their ignorance, and the readers will certainly recognize the asinine qualities which these individuals possess.
Isn't this the friend of GONSALVES, IAN FRANCIS the Marxist scum bag from the revolutionary Marxist 'New Jewel Movement', comrade to that dead Grenadian Marxist.
HIS WORD STANDS FOR NOTHING IN THE SCHEME OF GONSALVES OVERALL CRAP.
D. Markie Spring:
Reader in a few articles that you have read about my take about Gonsalves and his initiatives and commitment he placed on regionalism. Like other Vincentians I have embraced our role in regionalism.
Moreover, in my recent book, “Regionalism, the Caribbean Prospective” this was also discussed.
However, I also said that the reason St Vincent and the Grenadines is placing so much effort into the integration process is questionable. First, SVG invested more money into LIAT than any other Caribbean Island not because we want to; it’s because we have to. If LIAT does not fly then Vincentians and visitors alike will either have to stay in another island or catch a boat. So yes, it’s wise to invest so we have airlift in and out of SVG. They won tell you this!
Additionally, more effort is placed in CSME (the Single Market Economy) not because we want to but because we see the advantages to SVG for doing so. If the Caribbean managed to established a single market economy then Vincentians who are suffering from lack of employment at home could go elsewhere and seek jobs - a political master piece that would avoid Gonsalves from worrying about creating jobs for Vincentians, which he has failed to do in his rule. This to, Vincentians they would not tell you!
Vincentians, I know that you are abreast of what is happening and no one cannot fool you. Do not be fooled!

By the ANDERSON you missed BYRON-COX from your list of MARXIST
EVERYONE IS AWARE THAT SOME OF WHAT GONSALVES HAS DONE IS BENEFICIAL TO SVG. BUT ALL THE BAD THAT COMES WITH THE GONSALVES REGIME COUNTERACTS ANY APPLAUD THAT HE MAY DESERVE.
ANDERSON you wrote
“Ian Francis quite accurately described the Comrade as being "one of the region's most pragmatic, committed and forward-looking Prime Ministers..."
THIS MAN LIKE THE REST IS JUST BROWN NOSEING GONSALVES BECAUSE OF THEIR PAST AND PRESENT MARXIST AFFILLIATION.
ANDERSON you wrote
“Sadly, some Vincentians are so HATE-FILLED, specifically against the Prime Minister, that they are unable to identify any of his positive initiatives“.
NO ONE HATES THE MAN, WHAT WE HATE IS WHAT HE STANDS FOR, HIS MARXISM, ALL THE SPITE AND HATEFUL WRONG THAT EMINATES FROM HIS REGIME.
It is you ANDERSON that spouts hate and lies about decent people who will not accept the GONSALVES crap that we are fed, and blindly supported by people such as you ANDERSON.
1/ Under this SVG MARXIST regime times have got so hard that people cannot earn a living in SVG.
2/ People are frightened of the police who beat and torture admissions of guilt from people, police get convictions from forced false admissions.
3/ Rape is out of control, with even prime minister Gonsalves being accused of such.
4/ Murder is out of control.
6/ Police shoot to kill, and ask questions afterwards.
7/ It is common for women to be beaten and even chopped with cutlass by their men and boyfriends.
8/ Child rape and buggery of little boys is common.
9/ Huge amounts of cash in US dollars regularly flows into the island. to be shared by the ULP hierarchy.
10/ Hospitals commonly have no drugs, wrong drugs, no medical dressings, scanning machine and ultra sound not working, hospital dirty, more chance of dieing in hospital than out of hospital.
11/ GONSALVES and all his ministers seek hospital treatment abroad whilst other citizens have to use fifth rate medical treatment in SVG.
12/ Business’s are being opened by ULP members to launder dirty money
13/ Poor home and mental institution joined as one, homeless people having to endure living with mentally sick people. The home feeds nasty food that should only be fed to pigs. Not enough beds and people sleep on urine soaked mattress’s on the floor.
14/ People who don’t vote for the Unity Labour Party cannot get government jobs and are treated as second class citizens.
15/ Any one who speaks out against GONSALVES or conditions in SVG is subjected to political spite in their workplace, village and home.
16/ When there is storm damage only ULP members get their homes repaired.
GONSALVES told us in parliament that he does Obeah for the Lord, well you cannot do Obeah for Lord Jesus or his father God, so you must be doing Obeah for Satan, the Devil incarnate.
YES FOLKS IT'S A HUNDRED PERCENT TRUE, GONSALVES SAID IN PARLIAMENT THAT HE DOES OBEAH FOR THE LORD, ITS IN THE RECORDS, CAST IN STONE FOREVER. GONSALVES HAS NEVER APOLOGIZED FOR THAT STATEMENT OR WITHDRAWN IT. THEREFORE HIS ADMISSION STANDS, HE WORSHIPS OBEAH.
WAKE UP PEOPLE AND SMELL THE SULPHUR
In 2010, a bag full of cash, US dollars turned up at the NCB bank, a million US to be exact, or there about. The bank was asked to change the money into EC$s, after due consideration the called his relative and told him to take the US$s away, refusing to change it. Days and weeks afterwards ULP relatives and friends began turning up at banks with smaller sums of US money and banking it. A ULP government official walked about with a huge roll of US$ bills in his pocket, removing it occasionally to pay bills in bars and shops.
GONSALVES has failed to give a credible answer about where that money came from.
That amount of money comes via banks, money transfers that can be checked for legality, not in an old bag. Only dirty money comes in an old bag.
Whoever gave it, did they expect it to be shared out among the ULP hierarchy? or was it to be used for the party? whichever it was shared out by a few.
Rape accusations against St Vincent and the Grenadines PM dismissed
29 May 2008 in Rape and Sexual Assault, South America.
Two sexual assault cases against the prime minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines were dismissed summarily, spurring critics to say ‘old boy’ networks trump the rule of law.
In 1992 Ralph Gonsalves in an address to the Barbados Bar Association noted that
" I find the approach of both parliament and the judiciary is less than wholesome in the protection of the constitutional right of freedom and expression. Too often Caribbean legislator's go beyond the outer limits of a persons rights to free freedom of expression and they are insufficiently reproached by Caribbean judges"
Was that just a MARXIST trying to have his voice and opinions heard without interruption by the governments and laws?
Now the man is in power all those values that he voiced have been abandoned or dumped. Its what's called MARXIST manipulation.
I consider that under GONSALVES we are under a dire threat of a dynasty being formed, a dictatorship, with his son waiting in the wings on the fathers promise of power being handed to him on his retirement.
If you look at all the Vincentian newspapers of the early GONSALVES era, he was hated by our parents and grandparents, they described him as a Marxist, a man without God, and a worshipper of Cuba and Russia. Perhaps the old folks were right and we should heed their warnings, which in most cases are now warnings from the grave.
If you want dire ct quotes, I have all the news papers from the 60’s to present day, just as and I will print them, showing references and pages etc.
What GONSALVES needs to take credit for is the death, rape, murder, imprisonment of Christians in Iran. I believe his support of the Iranians at the UN makes GONSALVES scum.
IN 2001, GONSALVES ISSUED OR CAUSED TO BE ISSUED A DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT TO A VINCENTIAN CANADIAN MAN CALLED REUBEN MORGAN, HE WAS NEITHER A DIPLOMAT OR EMPLOYED BY THE SVG GOVERNMENT. SUBSEQUENTLY IN 2004, MORGAN WAS ARRESTED AT A LONDON AIRPORT CARRYING A KILO OF COCAINE IN HIS LUGGAGE, HE WAS TRAVELING ON THE VERY SAME DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT THAT GONSALVES HAD APPROVED OR ISSUED TO HIM.
Let there be no doubt unless GONSALVES approves of a diplomatic passport it cannot be issued.
I ENQUIRE WAS THIS THE FIRST AND ONLY COCAINE DELIVERY TO THE UK, CANADA OR ELSEWHERE BY MORGAN? THE QUESTION HAS TO BE ASKED BECAUSE HE HAD THE DIPLOMATIC PASSPORT FOR 4 YEARS BEFORE HE WAS CAUGHT.
AT THE TIME OF REUBEN MORGAN TRAVELING TO THE UK HE WAS GOING TO AN EVENT WITH A RELATIVE JUDITH JONES-MORGAN THE SVG ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO WAS TRAVELING ON A DIFFERENT FLIGHT.
In 2010, Reuben Morgan opened a Chinese restaurant with his Canadian Chinese business partner in SVG at Villa. In 2011 Morgan’s Chinese wok cooking expert said that they were going to open a casino at the new Argyle Airport, they could only do so with the blessing of GONSALVES.
The Chinese Canadian having made that statement, GONSALVES got real angry, and said he would never sanction a CASINO.
One night the Chinese restaurant closed and all the equipment moved out during the early hours of the morning. Everything was shipped out to Saint Lucia, where they have now set up business.
Peter, ah mean Brian, I see you like to see your name in print. Every chance you get, you write some nonsense.
Look guy, you must be a damn fool. I wrote before you and I predicted that you and thiefing Markie Spring would come around and chat garbage, AND YOU DID EXACTLY WHAT I SAID.
Why do you continue to prove me right?
So thiefing Markie Spring said tat "the reason the SVG government places so much emphasis in LIAT is because we have to."
He goes on to say that they won't tell you so.
Well, does anyone have to tell anyone else that?
Isn't that obvious?
If you Markie,could see that, why cant anyone else do so?
To make matters worse,. since that investment in LIAT is so obvious, then why would any fool even oppose the investment in LIAT or the construction of the airport?
Now the half-idiot Markie Spring writes in his above penultimate paragraph, "If the Caribbean managed to ESTABLISHED a single market economy..."
"ESTABLISHED???" Markie, what happened to your verb?
If verbal wind were a marketable resource, Mr. Gonzalves would indeed have been a most transformative leader of St. Vincent.
As it stands, however, his articulate posturings have done little other than to earn himself attention. How involving St. Vincent in ALBA or stressing his socialist ideological credentials is supposed to do anything for the practical realities of his country is something known only to him and his admirers.
It says something sad that a PM can find the time to write such copious nonsense about theory and vacuous philosophy at a time like this.
It is curious that only residents and leaders of the smaller islands of CARICOM (like grenada and svg) seem to place so much stock in closer integration and CSME as a practical reality.
While leaders of larger member states pay it lip service, they recognise, rightly, that in practical terms closer economic integration of our region makes no sense whatsoever for the citizens of their countries. It clearly makes sense for the smaller ones, which already have OECS, so I find it hard to understand why they agitate for more.
Put together, Caricom has a smaller market for goods and services than uruguay! Additionally, regional countries are usually competitors (and not natural bedmates) for GLOBAL markets, which is why they each benefit from GLOBAL, rather than regional integration.
I so NO WAY to CSME or closer regional integration. Gonsalves can talk all he wants. He will never convince us.
When anyone says a Prime Minister "can talk all he wants. He will NEVER convince us," they are only exposing their closed-mindedness.
"NEVER" is a very strong word.
If a University Professor who is also a Political Scientist, Economist, Attorney, experienced politician and Prime Minister, is incapable of clear accurate perception, then heaven help us.
If SOME of those who never ever completed secondary school KNOW BETTER than the Prime Minister, then obviously, something is wrong.
If your mind is closed....of course, no one could convince you of anything!
A mind is like a parachute....
It only works when it is open.
The point is that CSME and close regional integration MAKE NO SENSE!
I am happy that my own country said "no thanks" to CSME, while remaining a CARICOM member and I would like to see other regional leaders have the courage to do the same.
Goodwill, regional camaraderie and cooperation are good goals, which is why we have caricom. But the idea of integration bringing some kind of economic benefit is nonsense.
Gonsalves comes from a long tradition of professorial, small island leaders who longwindedly espouse impractical, but intelligent-sounding platitudes about integration (one thinks of Adams, Manley and others). I am happy that the leaders of my own country (the Bahamas) have been less professorial, more practical and kept us out of foolhardy endeavours like CSME.
The ULP administration and Ralph Gonsalves need to terminate the Governmnent Plantation that is corrupted, moral bankrupted and is a disease that is only curable when there is a Prime Minister Ricardo Francis of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Prime Minister Ricardo Francis of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in waiting and in the making.
HORACE WILLIAM, you really have to get a hold of yourself mentally.
Your hiding behind alias’s such as SIMON ANDERSON, JOHN, a senior police officer and several others is evidence of you at the least having an inferiority complex, perhaps evidence of serious mental illness.
We all know when you posted as HORACE WILLIAMS, some of your claims were so outrageous that you were banned from posting for a period.
I suppose being exposed as a serial liar using a series of false names is quite annoying, added to exposure of you working as a paid collaborator and saboteur on these blog’s for the GONSALVES Marxist ULP.
Your obviously ill-bred, ill-mannered, and we certainly know badly educated.
Your type of behaviour is most prevalent in people who are ignorant nobodies, trying to be somebody’s, but falling well short of the mark.
Like GONSALVES lying is also your major problem, you cannot even be truthful about who you are. You repeat every lie that Gonsalves utters, and also embroider them.
You attack every decent person who comes on here, people who are honest and don’t need to hide who they are, such as D. Markie Spring and others. You really are a piece of crap.
Do really think that anything you post is seen as credible, even though you try and cloak it in some eloquence, its still crap and lies. You accuse everyone else of lying, and the only one lying is you.
HORACE WILLIAMS you are just scum, what kind of man would suppress the truth, continually tell lies, and attack decent people who are thank God keeping decency and the truth alive.
Why don't you just go and live in one of the countries with GONSALVES that you all support, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, and any one of those crap states where they kill, torture and maim their own people and in particular Christians. You would not last five minutes in any of those countries, because even they dislike scum bags such as you.
You are truly a servant of Satan, go and worship Obeah with Gonsalves, remember he told us he worships Obeah for the Lord, well you can't worship Obeah for God, so that only leaves the Lord of Darkness 'Satan'.
Here are some surprising writings from a Catholic website that I visited.
Here is a quote that can give some insight to the Teachers Agreement, which GONSALVES signed and he new it was unconstitutional and therefore unenforceable.
“The word of any Marxist is worthless and not to be depended on. Make no contract with any Marxist, for their signature signifies nothing“.
“Show me a Marxist and I'll show you an ends-justify-the-means liar. The Ends Justify The Means is their only guide for life“.
“All Marxists are liars. Marxists have to be liars; being a liar is virtually a definitive characteristic of being a Marxist. Lying is a requirement of being a Marxist. The ultimate goal of the Marxist is to move all of society toward or into Communism; that “worthy” goal is the supposedly noble “End” that justifies, in the mind of the Marxist, any “Means” at all that may be applied to achieve it“.
“It is not possible to be a real Marxist and not be a liar. You cannot betray someone unless you lie to him to have him believe you would not betray him. The whole purpose of the plan involves betrayal on a massive scale“.
“Marxism is a dressed-up Machiavellian plan to use deceit and treachery to assume a throne or a dictatorship. Anything that requires deceit and treachery, meaning betrayal of friends and allies, requires lying“.
ISN’T THE TRUTH ANNOYING?
Least we forget
1/ Ottley Hall, SIMON ANDERSON claims to have all the information about the $200 million for the OTTLEY HALL PROJECT that is only worth $16 million, he knows who embezzled or stole $184 million. Why hasn’t GONSALVES called him to the enquiry?
2/ why did 5 separate women accuse Gonsalves of sex crimes, at least one was a charge of rape. WHY?
3/ Where did the US$1 million in cash come from that was carried to the NCB in an old bag.
4/ Where did the US$s cash come from that leading ULP and family members shared out and some deposited.
5/ Where did the wealth come from that a member of parliament now has in the way of several houses, several cars, several women, several children. The from rags to riches in 11 years.
6/ Why did Gonsalves give a Diplomatic Passport to a man called Morgan, who was not a diplomat, never worked for the government or any government owned organization, the man was caught at London airport using that very same diplomatic passport whilst carrying a kilo of cocaine.
7/ GONSALVES has said on several occasions that he is here to finish the work of MAURICE BISHOP, well according to public records in Grenada and Maryland USA, Bishop gave instructions that people should be sent to Cuba and Russia to learn how to keep two sets of books, to cook the books to enable him to commit fraud against the IMF and WORLD BANK. Has Gonsalves specifically excluded this part of Bishops work?
8/ Who in the ULP government had a house built by the Buccament Bay people not far from Harmony Hall.
9/ Why did GONSALVES sign a contract with the Teachers Union, fully well knowing it was unconstitutional and therefore unenforceable. Then told the teachers it was the best contract the ever had, why?
10/ Why did GONSALVES approve the employment of three policemen who had been convicted of serious crimes, convictions upheld at appeal. Why?
11/ Why has Saint Vincent got a bank account in Havana Cuba, where countries like Iran put money in? and who monitors and audits that account?
12/ How much each were the TEREX trucks at the Argyle airport, and who is responsible for that deal?
13/ Is it true that VINLEC has been supplying diesel fuel to the airport without payment to date. Has such action caused expensive electricity prices to be excessively expensive to the SVG consumers? are the VINLEC consumers paying for the fuel used at the airport?
14/ What was the procedure and reason that David Ames of Harlequin got SVG citizenship, and how did he qualify?
15/ Can anyone explain how the 30% pay awards promised by GONSALVES prior to the 2001 election, is now with inflation a minus 30% pay award?
16/ Why did the police shoot a harmless homeless man in the legs? was he carrying a gun? did he have a cutlass? did he throw sticks or stones? did he say something nasty? After having to high powered top brass meeting, they have now decided to charge the victim. Is that because they may have to reinstate even more criminal policemen if they are convicted of some artificially lower crime than attempted murder?

Will this kind of behaviour encourage SVG’s youth to be of good character?
ISN'T THE TRUTH ANNOYING
I consider the judgment awarded to RALPH E. GONSALVES against NICE RADIO is a disgrace and an amount that is nothing less than a travesty of decency, truth and justice.
How can anything said against GONSALVES be worth $250,000 the man in my eyes is worth no more than a bag of donkey dung. Why do I say that? because he was accused and charged with rape by a woman police officer. He denied that charge, yet never sued this woman for bringing his name into disrepute. He was accused and charged by a Canadian human rights lawyer of sexual molestation. He also denied that charge, yet never sued this woman for bringing his name into disrepute. He was accused by several other women of sexual assault, yet never sued any of these woman for bringing his name into disrepute. If what they said was untrue they brought at least a hundred times more damage to GONSALVES good name and standing in VINCENTIAN society.
GONSALVES is a man who brings himself into disrepute by being a self confessed LIAR and as such a self declared thief, and a self declared worshipper of OBEAH.
I consider GONSALVES a dirty mouthed liar who utters obscenities about all and sundry yet not a one of them sue him.
GONSALVES said in parliament “ I SOME TIMES tell lies” he also said “ SHOW ME A LIAR AND I WILL SHOW YOU A THIEF”, he also said in parliament “I ONLY DO OBEAH FOR THE LORD”, we all know you can’t do OBEAH for God, but you can for LORD SATAN. In my eyes that make GONSALVES a DEVIL worshipper.
Now how can GONSALVES good name be worth more than a bag of DONKEY DUNG.
PLEASE SUPPORT NICE RADIO AS A MATTER OF URGENCY WITH A DONATION NO MATTER HOW SMALL, SUPPORTING NICE RADIO IS TO SUPPORT DEMOCRACY AND A FIGHT AGAINST MARXISM.
