Chas­tanet pulls off a small mir­a­cle

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LETTER -

Hail he, hail he, hail he; the great war­rior will de­liver us from eco­nomic bondage. Cuba cut­ting into ev­ery is­land’s prod­uct; Fa­ther Butch look­ing to build three San­dals by 2020 in Cuba alone and cruise ships lining up like the great block­ade. Yes, the great sav­ior sun of the soil will pull a rab­bit out of his top hat to save the econ­omy.

- King Majesty Kenny uses pa­tois or lang mam nous to fool the peo­ple. You think just be­cause Kenny can speak cre­ole that he means well for the coun­try. Misie ca mate caca aun tete jean Set lu­cie. Vieux neg pol­i­tics.

- Doubt­ing Thomas The de­trac­tors of the march are now us­ing the noise around the “N” word to take away from the fact that peo­ple are fed up with the way things are hap­pen­ing in the coun­try. On the one hand they talk about democ­racy and free speech and on the other they are con­demn­ing some­one’s right to ex­press them­selves in the strong­est way pos­si­ble. Come on peo­ple, it’s a protest and no one ever said it would be pretty. If she did any­thing il­le­gal she would be ar­rested. If she of­fended any­one then let them com­plain then shut up.
