Letter: Allen wants total submission like a domesticated chicken on his farm
Published on January 22, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Sir:

Growing up, never mind how long ago, I was told you have to listen to your parents. You should not talk back and always respect the elders in the village. Most of us followed that rule or else you can expect a good tongue lashing or whipping. Often times both would descend on you without warning. This is what Allen’s UWP and his elite executive reminds me of, except this time around the one who is crying out for parents’ privilege is acting more and more like a dictator in modern times.

Last week I reminded all of Allen’s UWP reality TV show featuring new Flambeaus, all working hard to massage their master’s ego. The famous UWP national council over the weekend tried very hard to whip delegates, parliamentarians and the misbehaving members into submission. They have even gone so far as to add Michael Flood to the list of persons to fall in line, since Leonne Theodore cannot wait much longer to take his place.

They tried to keep the media at bay five hours after a scheduled 4 pm press conference, only to have chairman Ezekiel Joseph show up to eat his words. The remaining parliamentarians all vanished in the dark shortly after 10 pm. I have never seen politicians run and walk so fast away from reporters and television cameras. Someone quickly reminded me that Gale Rigobert’s (the dictator tom girl earmarked to replace King) makeup had expired and the others were too ashamed to put on their facemasks.

The experiment to whip Stephenson King into submission did not work, however, with the writing on the wall, the decision to replace him will finally come down on Monday January 21, 2014. Forget Richard Frederick, he is not going to come to the table to get whipped; as Ralph Gonsalves’ once colourfully described Allen Chastanet, "Castries mulattos", believe they are "oracles" and represent a "break in the social advancement in the Eastern Caribbean."

The weekend news on the ground is that Allen Chastanet and Arsene James are partners and owners of a poultry farm in Desruisseaux. Soon, well wishers can rest assured there will be lots of barbecues in Desruisseaux leading up to the election in 2016. That is if the foxes in the valley don’t get there first! Now you know why Arsene James is in a straightjacket. His retirement is in Allen Chastanet’s hands; what a ting!

I asked a brother why would Allen have a poultry farm in Desruisseaux? And how come it’s only now that Allen is trying to mix with poultry farmers and the common man if it is not to whip them into submission and control them like a modern day dictator. The brother replied, domesticated chickens do nothing, they are always afraid. I also asked the brother, do you think Allen really cares about the people in the community? What for, he replied, the real green light Allen wants is to run that “safe seat” on a UWP ticket.

If that’s the case, then he has taken another failed decision to disrespect the intelligence of the people of Desruisseaux. Well, of course, you really cannot fault Allen; his political thinking is filled with hypocrisy and a brain of official immaturity, similar to an overgrown baby who should be in his crib at home.

I have no idea why the UWP has burdened itself with an overgrown baby as political leader, a street talking bus driver, a dummy parliamentarian, a tom girl as leader of the opposition and Arsene James in the poultry business with the likes of a modern dictator.

I look forward to the reopening of the cockfighting den in Desruisseaux, a real Sunday afternoon pastime. Cheers…
