Allen Chastanet Sworn in as Saint Lucia’s New Prime Minister
I believe Allen can never feel the pain and misery of the poor as he has never known want or poverty. I never wanted Allen for my PM and I hoped that the party would win but he would lose so he didn’t become PM. However, the people of Micoud made a choice. A wise one as among the candidates for that constituency he was the better in many respects. Now between Kenny Barnard and Allen whose family has built their fortune on the backs of the poor? Slave owners and finally plantation owners to now hoteliers are the Barnards, or so I learnt from way back when. Is is true? Is it documented fact? Now where did Michael start? His story is interesting, to say the least, but while I personally have my gripes with him, I must say I admire his guts. As for Allen, well another story, but I say better him than Kenny any day. – Padre Joe
Allen did nothing but help all the poor people. Kenny took from the poor and sent taxes up on everyone so how can you say he was better? The tax was not needed; we just need the politicians to quit stealing from every contract and spend the money wisely and this country will be a whole better. Every contract let on the island would be 30-40% higher than what it should have cost. You tell me this is not stealing form Lucians and the poor? – Sir Mark
Fact: Huge losses in the now defunct Rum and Wine Tasting Festival.
Fact: Huge losses at Jazz 2009 and 2010; also the misuse of tourism funds to promote and entertain Amy Whineout. Fact: The monopolization of groceries imported and supermarket chains in Saint Lucia for years resulting in resounding hardship for the working class and poor Saint Lucians who find it difficult to provide the basic necessities for families who do not have the luxury of a barrel or remittance coming from friends and family overseas.
Now with all these fiscal failures with state funds he is now fit to lead? In order for one to reach the peak of the mountain, one has to walk through a valley. What, where and which valley has Allen Chastanet walked through ? – King Majesty
