Letter: Secrets and mistrust within Allen's UWP
Published on December 9, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

While my farm blooms with vegetables, legumes and bananas, I have never committed myself to thinking that the harvest is guaranteed. I was not brought up in the Now Generation and neither do I subscribe to the naïve rookies that are developing an inferiority complex, as some members of the new UWP are developing.

If not already known, it is common knowledge that Allen Chastanet’s support is carefully masked in return for favours. It is also a school of thought that Stephenson King ‘got the boot’ for not having the resources and stature to match the largesse promised by Chastanet. This remains the hottest development at work in the party today.

Even though ancient examples have taught me not to expect fruit from a male papaya tree (espérer mâle papaye), it’s only a confused, untaught rookie who would think otherwise. I think we are seeing this in the “overnight success” of the leader of the UWP, Allen Chastanet, who is busy promising goodies he doesn’t have and has little or no prospect of ever producing. It is once again just the same old song and dance -- like all the money he promised the UWP would have access to if he was elected leader and the unfounded promises he contributed to the UWP manifesto. Seven hotels, even one in Micoud! The promise of 7,000 jobs, Oh yes, he is no different than Kenny Anthony.

But the majority of us are asking what happened. Where is the money, Allen? Anyway, Christmas is around the corner and, just maybe, Santa Claus will arrive just in time to save your inferiority complex and the confused rookies this Christmas. Otherwise we may have to jump ship!

I would hate to believe that the expression, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me,” has become a reality. It would be disheartening to see Leonne Theodore-John and Petra Nelson fooled twice in the same year. While Catherine Sealys’ United PAC and WIA, Mary Polius, and her media sympathizers, Darnley La Bourne and others that are working behind the scenes still await their piece of the pie for their hard work.

The lord of secrets has revealed that Leonne has been promised the ministry of national security and Petra the post of attorney general. Lord have mercy! Thank God, the last time I looked, Chastanet and his sidekicks don’t even have any seats in parliament, let alone the prospect of elected government to be able to make good on such wishful thinking.

At least Stephenson King had the good sense to reject such blandishments. After all, he learned from the maverick Sir John Compton and I would like to believe that he has some smarts and a few cunning moves in him. Even though he was stabbed in the back by the likes of Guy Joseph, Ezekiel Joseph, and Leonard Montoute, who also await their reward from Allen Chastanet.

The unbelievable is beginning to happen whereby the cheerleaders Leonne and Petra are attempting to use their combined law capabilities to weed out the mistrust within the party. I hope a mirror is close at hand! They are, I say, two rookies of political wit and analysis.

I wish them every success in their undertaking to protect their interests with the best of traps. But don’t even think about assassinating Tori Fatal or Tokyo Rose… you know not who you are dealing with.

Which reminds me, there was once a rebel group of whom it was said,” You give them one rifle with only one bullet, but in the morning you find ten people dead…”

If what people are telling me is true, the LPM seems to be the only political party left on the island capable of achieving a comparable result.

In any event, I am encouraged that there are crops on my farm to harvest, to which I must attend. I would welcome all the help that’s available for a successful harvest, without stepping on any traps.

This is the biggest piece of I have read on Caribbean News Now. Why don't St Lucian stop exposing their ignorance to the world.


As Political leader of the UWP Chastanet, must demonstrate he has the balls to purge the misfits from the party. Otherwise he is doomed!!


Well written......
