(SNO) — Laborie Member of Parliament (MP) and former foreign minister, Alva Baptiste, is of the opinion that the Saint Lucia government is suffering from multiple personality disorder on many issues including its stance on the crisis in Venezuela.

This after the present Foreign Minister Sarah Flood-Beaubrun disclosed that the resident Venezuelan ambassador is about to end her tenure and will be replaced despite the fact that Saint Lucia voted to not recognize the legitimacy of the recent election allowing Nicolas Maduro to retain his presidency of Venezuela for a second term.

Baptiste believes this is a sign that the Allen Chastanet-government is suffering from the psychological disorder which is described as a condition wherein a person’s identity is fragmented into two or more distinct personality states.

“When you have a government suffering from multiple personality disorder, that’s what you get,” he said at a press conference.

This is how Flood-Beaubrun describes the government’s position on the matter.

“One can indicate that the process is flawed and as a result of the process being flawed, the outcome lacks legitimacy,” she explained. “One can state that and one can continue to maintain that. One can also take it a step further and say as a result of your illegitimacy I can take an A, B, C course of action. We have not done so.”

But Baptiste is not buying the explanation, saying the government has no clear position on foreign policy.

“We have an administration, you have no idea where they are headed,” he stated. “It is like the story about the father, the son and the donkey. All along the way people give them advice and they end up doing different things. The father and the son carry the donkey up to a point, then the father was on the donkey and the son was walking, then the son ended up on the donkey … it was just mass confusion, when you don’t have a rational and convincing proposal for the development of the country and for foreign affairs.”

He added, “So when you accept an ambassador and you say you don’t accept the outcome of an election in the country, then that is a bitter contradiction and it clearly states that this government has no coherent policy on anything.”

  6. Mrs. Beaubrun explains:“One can indicate that the process is flawed and as a result of the process being flawed, the outcome lacks legitimacy,” she explained. “One can state that and one can continue to maintain that.

    It's worse than a passage from Alice In Wonderland. This is a statement from a minister for Foreign Affairs? AWA.

  7. What a pack of jokers. Dammit! If your regime is the one that put out the red carpet for Maduro, who today, do you think are the ones with eggs on their faces? Almost all the key players in the hemisphere are recognizing MAD-uro's opponent. Who do you think is more embarrassed? The SLP or the UWP?

    This is a cogent example of classic psychological projection. But as is common with the SLP, some people are using big words that they do not really understand. What we have always had a lot of in Saint Lucia, are jackass politicians falling over each other showing off their smart-ass talents.

    • Some of you just talk garbage you have no idea about what you are talking about. You vote for colors, you don’t listen or understand policy and international law. you don’t understand words, you call it big and you fail to see reality beyond your limited horizon.

      Even if a politician is making sense you get blindsided by your lack of reason and ignorance and you fail to accept basic logic.

      Who is Sarah flood to decide or make statements of wheather a countries government is legitimate or not, America say some shit all the sheep follow !! When will small islands states start to think for them selves and stop being a slave and a beggar of hand outs to developed countries.

      • Those with a legal background know something about legitimacy. Although a very complex subkect, it is obvious that whatever your political stripe, once there are questions contesting the "result" of an election the issue legitimacy of the "resulting" becomes front and centre. Only complete idiots can't see this or would find fault with those who question legitimacy under any issue involving election fraud or intimidation.

        Adult Saint Lucians routinely substitute alcohol and ganja in the place of meaningful self-education. They are just too lazy to think, preferring to simply parrot the words of their politicians. Some are deeply ignorant than themselves. Being a well-dressed idiots continuously spouting crass stupidly in the public domain no longer cuts it.
