|Letter: NDP financial mismanagement - 1984 to 2001|

The New Democratic Party (NDP) is presently the opposition political party in St Vincent, but from 1984 to 2001 -- 17 long years -- they held the reins of government here. I do not know of another national political party anywhere, which possesses a more ridiculous and utterly shameful record of non-achievement and financial mismanagement. Let us take a walk down memory lane and revisit some of what we experienced during those difficult years.
1) The Banana Growers Association had a surplus of $25 million in 1994. Julian "Bucky" Boyea suggested, and the farmers agreed that they should establish a Farmers Bank. This was not done, the money was squandered, and by 2001 when the ULP won the elections, the BGA was in debt to the tune of $30 million!
2) At that time, the Container Port in Camden Park was ridiculously disorganized. It was definitely unprofitable, and possessed an unserviced debt of almost $10 million!
3) Meanwhile, at the Cruise Ship Pier in Kingstown, there was $14 million owing to the Kuwaiti contractors as well as the substantive debt of $40 million. This totaled a whopping $54 million!
4) At the University of the West Indies, the arrears amounted to in excess of $7 million!
5) The Diamond Diary was in liquidation for several years. It was closed, but for nearly two years, those laid-off workers were paid nearly half-a-million dollars per year for doing absolutely nothing. At the end of the day, when the NDP was thrown out of office, the amount owing was in excess of $2 million!
6) The non-payment for 17 years of severance pay to 1,300 estate workers at Orange Hill, Wallilabou and Richmond Vale amounted to close to $3 million!
Here Comes the Biggie
The Ottley Hall Project actually amounted to one-third of the entire nation's total external debt.
A) The Ottley Hall debt owing to West LB (the German bank) was $156 million.
B) There was a further debt at the NCB of $10 million.
C) The NDP government actually paid interest to West LB between 1988 and early 2001of $18 million!
D) Dr Rolla, the NDP-man, siphoned off a further sum for the Union Island project, which amounted to over $16 million.
E) There were additional millions owing for professional fees, and even more owing for outstanding payments for goods and services provided at Ottley Hall. The NDP and its supporters had a field day, as they robbed the country blind.
This is why I continually ask Peter, ah mean Brian Alexander, how much money he obtained from this project.
This entire project has put St Vincent and the Grenadines into a situation where we owed in excess of $200 million!
To make matters worse... Coopers and Lybrand valued the project as being worth only $13.5 million!
If anyone knows of a government with a worse financial and economic record, please let me know.

PALMER, ON jUNE 3RD 2011, you wrote an extensive letter right here on this forum swearing how well you knew me as Simon Anderson.
You said that you traced my roots from Dickson Village in Georgetown.
Palmer, you said that you knew me as Simon Anderson, and that I was a School Teacher then Police Officer in St Vincent.
Palmer, you even said that I went to Bemuda and became the Commissioner of Police there.
You said that you were a Police Officer under my command (obviously) and that we had several conversations while you knew me as Simon Anderson.
You went on to say that I lived in Bermuda for 40 years and married a Bermudian lady. All this time you new me as Simon Anderson.
M Y S T E R I O U S L Y, you are now saying that my name is Horace Williams. What happened, Palmer?
I KNOW, YOU LIED!
Peter has now lied as well....just like you did last June.
What would you guys not do?
PALMER WENT TO JAIL IN ST VINCENT!
What could anyone expect from a man who went to jail in St Vincent for attempted murder f the Prime Minister. See article dated Jan 3rd 2012 entitled "An open letter to Ralph Gonsalves and his supporters."
SAFE HOUSES, HOMELAND SECURITY
WHO made a FALSE STATEMENT on the fine CARIBBBEAN NEWS NOW board that he was a GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE SVG BANANA GROWERS' ASSOCIATION ? A FRAUD. Journalist FRAUD.
But, ah wander WHICH ONE of dem ?
Was it Simpleton Simon ?
Or, Mister WILLY who shared Mr. TIBBS' farm with Mother Hen ?
NOW, now, if it was Simon Anderson - - - that is FALSE, and a FRAUDULENT claim. A deliberate, calculated, unethical attempt at DECEIVING the CNN readership.
BUT, but, if it was one alleged to be, in reality, some "hORACE Handerson" - - - then, maybe,just maybe, we could find something to salvage a TOTALLY DECREDITED political charlatan.
Politics never excuses one from making claims online or in the press that are clear examples of FRAUD.
The ultra-left fanatic, COMMUNIST Gonsalves cannot expiate, extirpate, or render guilt-less, demonstrable acts of FRAUD.
Free men must live by PRINCIPLES, not by being fawning SLAVES OF OTHER MORTAL MEN.
Let us not negate the very reason d'etre of our EMANCIPATION, FREEDOM FROM SLAVERY, AND POLITICAL-CONSTITUTIONAL INDEPENDENCE.
After all, there are STILL such things as SELF-RESPECT, BASIC DECENCY, HUMAN DIGNITY, INTEGRITY, AND GOOD CHARACTER.
In this fleeting mortal live that the ALMIGHTY ONE has so generously granted us, by His grace and righteousness, WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO LIVE FOR - - - and die for ?
