Rufus Bousquet

Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Choiseul/Saltibus Constituency, Rufus Bousquet, has predicted that United Workers Party (UWP) candidate, Bradley Felix, will lose the election.

“I think it’s a bad deal for him. He is going to lose. There is no doubt about that,” he asserted.

The former Foreign Affairs Minister said Felix is not going to lose the seat because he (Bousquet) wants the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) to win, but because he was part of a process that allegedly attempted to disenfranchise the people in Choiseul.

“I will say he was part of that process unwittingly, because I do not think he deliberately became part of that process. But he got caught up in the promises and schemes of the leader, and his best bet would be to leave that tiger alone. But if he wants to grab the tiger by the tail that’s up to him,” he added.

Bousquet had told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) in a previous interview that the whole process to organize a run-off had been bypassed, because there have been rumours that someone was already selected.

However, he had expressed an interest in contesting in a run-off to become the party’s next candidate for that constituency. But said if this didn’t happen, he may contest the seat as an independent.

Incumbent MP and Minister of Tourism Lorne Theophilus is also expected to contest that seat again.

In the November 28, 2011 General Elections, Bousquet obtained a total of 2,756 votes whereas, Theophilus, obtained 2,810 of the constituent’s votes.

Bousquet is currently serving as chairman of the UWP Choiseul/Saltibus Constituency Group.

    You SLP members of Parliament have no serious political agenda for the people of Saint Lucia but bickering like a bunch of school children. Mr Rufus Bousqet , maybe you should hand over your constituency to someone else and resign.

  4. Rufus is a pertulant child., his comments are solely because he was not selected as the Candidate . Bradley represents a new face and breath of fresh air. I believe that he stands an enormous chance of being the elected candidate. Rufus must recognize that his era has expired. The only tiger he references is a "Paper Tiger" who gives the impression that he has some prowess but is completely powerless. Rufus brings nothing to any political party and his attempt to discredit the UWP can only be interpreted as egoistic, destructive and self motivated attempt to derail a party where he no longer posses the attraction to , and required skill to be selected as a rep for choiseul .

The people want Bradley Felix, not u and with all their rights. Accept your defeat u sore loser and stop behaving like a big baby. Shameless man.

  7. Rufus seems to me as a little boy who cannot accept rejection. I mean for a man to be fired twice, rejected twice (once by Chas and once by electorate), shouldn't that person either give up or take a rest?

    To make matters worse it is common knowledge that Mr. Bousquet has some kind of ailment. Of course there are some people who still believe in Bousquet, and there are still those who still believe in Sir John, who is believe it or not. dead for several years now.

    Imagine there is still a great majority who will not vote for UWP because of Sir John or his policies. Some may also judge Chastanet on the stint that he did as Tourism Minister, which is quite different from being the leader of a country.

    The only person we can judge is Kenny Anthony who has been our leader for almost 15 years. His record stares us right in the face as being one of abject failure. The country has not improved from where we were in 1997. Just look at our levels of poverty, health care, justice, agriculture, youth empowerment etc.

    Check our infrastructure, roads, schools, hospitals etc even though we now pay triple the amount of tax. The level of alleged corruption, nepotism, lies, contempt far exceeds the days of the UN scandal, where we are now internationally recognized as a country of alleged fraudsters and human rights violators with Frenwel, Grynberg, Lambirds, Juffali and the likes.

    If there is one thing that we can judge is that there is a serious problem with us in making decisions based on the facts which confront us. Bousquet is another one of those distractions which will continue the status quo and legacy of Kenny, Bousquet, Richard etc.

    Making decisions in such a manner can only lead to the conclusion that we are a functionally illiterate people. Why should our future be determine by what these self-centered antiquated, derelict brains have to offer.

    I say to the right thinking literate people let us put this past of Kenny, Bousquet, Richard, Pip, Dalson to rest and make good decisions for the future and for our children's sake.

  8. Our Choiseul dolts gave him status as a past inmate of the US penitentiary system. But it not unknown for dogs, to return to and lap up, with tails all the time waging, their own owned vomit.

  14. Rufus Bousquet alias Bruce Tucker, sometime ago UWP'S were referred to as Mongrels yes Mongrels ( breed of mix dogs) now look carefully and see who is the real Mongrel, you are now begging on four legs to be accepted as the Candidate for Choiseul/Saltibus, You want to come back into the Party just like you never left, You realize Chastanet and crew have brought respectability back into the party because people like you are no longer there. You want to raise your ugly head again. Stay away, win or loose with Bradly we still win

    (11)(2)
  15. Somebody please give this guy a job. STEP, NICE, SMILE, CCC because he must be really desperate for a job. Josh man take a hint they don't want you!!

  16. It never ceases to amaze me; Some people just don't know when to SHUT UP! In their quest to destroy others they are actually destroying themselves.

    (11)(2)
  17. Does it even matter? SLP will win so this petty squabble between losers is pointless. Vote SLP.

    (9)(63)
  18. Bousquet - Accept it. Look at these comments. No one wants you so give it up. This is not for you.
    No one will vote you and UWP will make a big mistake if you have to run in Choisuel. No one wants you there.

    (41)(4)
  19. Really Rufus, the people of Choiseul do not want you. You are a spoiler, give up the reigns. You are chairman of the Choiseul UWP group.. Unbelievable. Put your tail between your legs. Marsh...

    (41)(5)

  21. Bouquet is clearly showing the desperate lengths he will go to so as to be in political office.
    The reality is now sinking in that his party is running a candidate and it is not him. He is now raging with anger and bittetness as did vauhan Lewis and Jeanine compton before him. Look what became their fate, defeat at the polls and that is what happens when people allow anger, hatred, bitterness and revenge to get the better of them.

    Bouquet squandered many opportunities HD had to have been a fine politician

    (29)(1)
  25. U waste of time Rufus, you've had your turn, fired twice and did nothing significant for Choiseul, your statement shows you never care, because you were not selected you want the man to lose, show us you can win independent then.

    (50)(2)
  26. I rather him lose than have you contesting the seat

  27. A few things comes in mind after reading this nonsense. These guys like all UWPs, thought that they would have won the 2011 elections. They wanted to continue seating on their gold mine, but God is in control. God had UWP to loose the election. UWP could not have function with King as leader and these 2 honchos. Rufus did not hesitate to say every bad about the UWP, hoping to get favor from the SLP. Remember God is in control. God gave us Mr. Chastanet and gave him the strength to get rid of Mr. Invincible. However, it was not God's plan to leave SLP in power hence all the nonsense they are doing to the country. These 5 years was just a cleansing period for the UWP. Now that the cleansing period is ALMOST complete, they are desperately trying to destroy what God has put together.

    (43)(7)
    • SLP was given a chance to see whether they would put things right. SLP turned out to be even more self serving and victimizing than UWP. they preach one thing and do something entirely different. its the guy gang and nothing is done for country. but they think that their phds make them brighter than you and me so we can't see through them. big mistake. what is dirty cannot be hidden. SLP will not be given the reigns of government. Kenny De Antonym will never head this country again. neither will the volaire and the rest of the sutiwez people in the sham loving party. SLP is done and gone.

      (8)(1)
    • With that logic you should write a bible. Apparently God put UWP in office . They sinned against him. He took them out to put SLP who even with their worst mistakes has proven to be far better than UWP. Now he's going to put UWP back. You must be a false prophet.

      (6)(6)
  28. Of course!
    SLP is winning again:)

    (13)(56)
  29. Hahahaha,they can't stand to hear the truth.one of they own is speaking out and they ready to take his head off.a whole bunch of losers all they do is to cum on here and talk shit about good government. Rufus will deal with y'all back stabbers.haha haha.

  30. Bousquet I prefer losing with Bradley than winning with u. Power hungry. Boy go an rest.

    (37)(4)
  31. I blame the media for all the attention they are giving to this guy. There should be some law in this country whereby persons such as Rufus Bousquet, Richard Frederick, Spider Montoute and Ezekiel Joseph who have absolutely no contribution to make, be arrested or charged everytime they express interest in anything related to politics of this country, I mean. That is absurd and ita relly becoming disrespectful, the level of attention

    (28)(5)
  32. Your statement is irrelevant no one gives a rats ass about you or what you think. Please do you want some cheese with your whine? take a chill pill and relax merci.

  33. Jaded Brownskin Spreader

    THE CHAS IS BEING GIVEN LESS CREDIT THAN HE DESERVES. DUDE CAME THROUGH LIKE A HURRICANE, TOOK OVER THE PARTY, GOT RID OF OR SIDELINED THE OLD GUARD, INSTITUTED A NEW EXECUTIVE, RESTRUCTURED THE PARTY, UPDATED THE CONSTITUTION, AND GOT TO PREPARING FOR ELECTIONS. THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN IS IN FULL SWING, WITH THE MOOD OF THE COUNTRY SET DEAD ON REPLACING THE SUICIDE SQUAD KNOWN AS THE LABOUR PARTY. THE CHAS DID ALL THIS WHILE BEING ATTACKED BY THE LABOUR PROPAGANDA MACHINE AND THE SIDELINED OR DEMOTED FORMER EXECUTIVE. THE LABOUR PROPAGANDA MACHINE, JADED AS THEY MAY ALWAYS BE ARE EXPECTED TO ATTACK A FORMIDABLE FOE (THEY ONLY ATTACK YOU WHEN THEY FEAR YOU) AND THE UWP. BUT THE ATTACKS FROM THE OUSTED RETARDS LIKE RUFUS IS THE MOST NAUSEATING. RUFUS ACTUALLY BELIEVES THAT A PARTY WHICH NOT ONLY WANTS TO WIN BUT WANTS TO GOVERN PROPERLY WOULD EVER CHOOSE HIM!.

    (32)(4)
  34. Bousquet please leave the people party alone and stop causing confussions in de people party. UWP is doing very fine now without you all bad rats. Please admit this party is a much well organized party and you still wanting to allegedly destroy it. You can't work with Chas and you still want's to run on a UWP ticket? oh please Rufus.

    (32)(1)
  35. If you so confident he will ose, run independent like you said, or go on lornes platform. I would rather see UWP lose the electiopn without people like you thatn to win with you, You are one fool, I really dont know hopw you ever came into politics. The monies run out?

    (25)(2)
  36. You lose so what'd wrong if another MSN lose I would rather lose with that guy than win with you because you ate a snake remember sir John fire u
