Letter: UWP 50th anniversary falls flat
Published on April 5, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

What good is it to celebrate 50 years as a political party in Saint Lucia without highlighting the good of the party and, in this case, the bad and the ugly of political existence?

Allen’s UWP went to their stronghold in Micoud North last weekend to a low-key welcome. I don’t know what more they expected in a farming village where Sir John Compton’s greatest achievement was to employ farm workers on his plantation!

The further good of UWP was not highlighted -- probably too mysterious for the naked eye, which of course is of no surprise considering Allen Chastanet’s newness and juvenile attributes to UWP history.

The bad, now that’s obvious, with daily occurrences on television and radio polluting the ears of Saint Lucians!

With little to show at the 50th anniversary rally of a few hundred persons, the heavens opened with rainfall -- a sure welcome for the farmers.

More rain came, but this time from the mouth of the crybaby speakers, namely Guy Joseph, chairman Ezekiel Joseph and the usual diarrhea mouth fast talking man himself, Allen Chastanet.

They all lamented unknowingly their sorry state of being and, as customary, showing off their non-made-up faces – a usual scare!

The loose talk and chatter was no surprise from the prancing arrogance of a laundry list of failed politicians more reminiscent of the Middle Ages who have overstayed their welcome.

The 50th anniversary rally and celebration of Allen’s UWP is another well documented example of a blind executive of cultural failures and dead horses. The blind leading the blind!

These failed conservatives are so devoid of practical political knowledge and experience that they continuously fall in the calculated trap to sideline Hon. Stephenson King and Richard Frederick – who by all indications carry the base of the UWP and have the more dynamic edge of the party -- is no more fiction but factual!
