Letter: What a deplorable mess we are in under this ULP regime
Published on February 22, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

There can be no doubt this ULP government has brought a lot of bad publicity to St Vincent and the Grenadines.

We have seen all sorts of crap laid at our door, I was going to say at no fault of the citizenship. But that would be grossly untrue, if our parents and grandparents refused to elect Gonsalves we should have respected their insight and knowledge of the man. He was the most hated and disliked man by our old folk, the newspapers were full of his antics every week and comments and articles against him and his behaviour. They commented and objected to his trying to bring Marxism and communism to this wonderful island. They read him like a book, and said what they thought, he never sued a one of them, they wrote what they wanted, because it was true.

Everything that happens in SVG can be labelled and blamed on one man, perhaps two and now possibly three, the father, the son and the hole in the head cousin. Not so much the son, I doubt he really knows what day of the week it is yet. But you can be sure he will learn rapidly, between uncle and papa, he will be given an express rail link to how to be another member of the Marxist scum brigade.

All the forgotten allegations about uncsee wunksee, the years without work as an odd job man, because banks where he worked made outrageous allegations about him. Driving old bangers, unfit for the road, wearing cast off clothing and wearing clothes rejected by the poor home and the Salvation Army.

No one stays with Gonsalves, he outs them and replaces them, each time with young whippersnapper idiots, tells them what they dream of, then later discards them like a pair of soiled y-fronts. Remember one batch he even described as the dream team, they all turned out to be a nightmare. But not the family, they stay in power, despite being unelected, there are two of them now, unelected and ministers of government, hard to believe eh?

Daddy waddy has been accused of sex crimes against women, charged for rape, charged for sexual assault. According to the DPP Colin Williams there were at least five cases involving sex accusations and allegations. Never been to court, one man’s decision, the DPP, decided he had no case to answer in every case.

We were lied to about the airport. Told it would cost us nothing; that other countries would pay for everything; lies and more lies.

We are in such a mess; we are teetering on the brink of fiscal failure, close to being unable to pay our debts. Those which we are paying are at the expense of not paying others. I believe we are caught up in a huge state- owned Ponzi scheme.

The Argyle airport should have been finished in 2010; every year we are told it will be next year. 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014; yet still it’s at least two years away; the earliest it could be would be 2016. Then only if we can borrow a further $250 million. In another two years, our national debt will be approaching $2 billion, an amount that we will never be able to repay.

It really is time to have a clear out, get the rubbish out of the cupboard and the scum from the boil-up, time to start over, to get some common decency back in our lives.
