The Star (St. Lucia) - - LETTER -

SLP TAR­GETS TEEN! If St. Lu­cia vote UWP or SLP this time I per­son­ally mov­ing to Cuba . . . I rather live with a fu­ture than live in the past . . . we Lu­cians have to stop the po­lit­i­cal vam­pires or we will never see the light. For­ward ever.

--- Jack­son Price Kenny Dumbtony’s ar­rival into the lead­er­ship of St. Lu­cia in 1997 was the birth of the death of St. Lu­cia. A big red tick just suck­ing the life blood out of the is­land. Now, St. Lu­cia is on her death bed and count­less red ticks are con­sum­ing and get­ting fat while the av­er­age St. Lu­cian is see­ing a mis­ery that you would find in Haiti. At least we both speak French cre­ole.

-- Doubt­ing Thomas Lu­cians are so full of shit, Rick. I won­der why they don’t from con­sti­pa­tion. I watch all your shows and I see noth­ing wrong with what the young man said. I too am a youth and yes I too have thought of cer­tain thing sim­i­lar. We are frus­trated. We see no way for­ward for us in this coun­try. We are sick of the politi­cians and their hacks. The SLP has an army of peo­ple on the ground ready to at­tack. Peo­ple are scared of speak­ing out be­cause of those hacks. We are threat­ened into si­lence. Yes hacks. We are FRUS­TRATED and we blame the SLP for our present sit­u­a­tion. Kenny lied to us. Yes he did. He tricked us into vot­ing for him. But, fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. Kenny will not fool me a third time.

---- I am Lu­cian

PRICEY BRIDGE OPEN­ING Any­time con­struc­tion and gov­ern­ments of any coun­try are in­volved, cor­rup­tion in the guise of cost over-runs are a byprod­uct. St. Lu­cia is en­slaved to an eco­nomic model which is killing business growth. You can’t keep bor­row­ing and just think tax­a­tion will take care of your debt; the very tax brings despair and hope­less­ness. Kenny is in the process of cre­at­ing a plan­ta­tion with NICE roads and bridges. What next? The air port?

--- Doubt­ing Thomas The lit­tle ex­tra cost must be VAT in­duced. Must be a spe­cial kind of bridge, it can swim when the river rises.

--- Doubt­ing Thomas It is telling, that in St. Lu­cia suc­cess is de­fined as a bridge built with bor­rowed for­eign money, at greater ex­pense than planned and opened with a lav­ish cer­e­mony. It’s just ba­sic in­fra­struc­ture that most coun­tries would just com­plete as a mat­ter of course. With so many is­sues to deal with and so many peo­ple suf­fer­ing it re­ally does look a class apart.

--- baz PE­TI­TION TO SAVE TROUYA BEACH SUB­MIT­TED I hate to say it, but suc­ces­sive Gov­ern­ments have pushed St. Lu­cians to the brink for mere pit­tance from for­eign­ers and this even more bank­rupt Gov­ern­ment is no dif­fer­ent if not worse. Un­less we take stock now we will one day wake up and find ev­ery­thing we value in the hands of for­eign­ers and Lu­cians go­ing to what­ever lengths nec­es­sary to re­claim their her­itage. Even vi­o­lence and blood­let­ting. Our politi­cians are do­ing to us what the Bri­tish and colo­nial pow­ers did to African na­tions which see the kinds of events which tran­spire in Zim­babwe to­day in a mis­guided at­tempt to right the wrongs of the past. It is when th­ese places start to go up in flames and Lu­cians stricken by poverty be­gin to be­have like the peo­ple in the streets of Haiti, and th­ese busi­nesses start to re­quire heavy mil­i­tary like se­cu­rity (like I see all over cer­tain Latin Amer­i­can coun­tries) to guard their turf, that our politi­cians will learn. Or when ar­nachy be­gins to trans­form this once peace­ful tran­quil par­adise into a war zone and our loving peo­ple take up arms against their own gov­ern­ment, and civil strife and dis­obe­di­ence be­comes the or­der of the day, that the gar­goyles and par­a­sites which see no evil with the treach­ery of elected of­fi­cials will be sat­is­fied to say enough is enough and pull support from th­ese jack­als we are forced to elect elec­tion after elec­tion. I may sound harsh and crude if not in­sane, but the stage is be­ing set for fu­ture home­grown acts of ter­ror­ism in the name of free­dom. Make no joke, when hun­gry bel­lies and abused peo­ple see the the only spoils to be en­joyed are but by a priv­i­leged few and they know the spoils were stolen from them and their fore­bears, it makes for a dan­ger­ous con­coc­tion of deadly re­volt. His­tory is re­plete with it; mod­ern so­ci­ety is filled with the re­sults of the now gen­er­a­tion fight­ing back and rav­aging their own coun­tries to roll back what took many gen­er­a­tions to bring to fruition. Is this what we want? No!!!. So it is time to tell the cor­rupt politi­cians Stop!!!!

--- John Joseph Rick that beach have a long his­tory - 45 years ago my dad almost got shot when he broke down a gate the then own­ers of the sur­round­ing land put to keep the lo­cals out. We sell­ing all our beach prop­erty to ho­tels for quick cash when we can make more if all ho­tels were at least 1/4mile from so called queens’ chain. We de­stroy­ing the very thing that at­tracts rich en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious tourists. Well done Comp­ton, well done King, well done Kenny . . . tick tock

--- Jack­son price Kenny wants a ho­tel on ev­ery beach; he is sell­ing St. Lu­cia at jam­met prices and we are talk­ing jam­met spe­cials. The only place all the neg will be able to swim is in the river mouths.
