Guy Joseph tells SLP: Leave investors out of problems with the government

Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation, Guy Joseph, has said the main opposition St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) should keep investors out of their problems with the government.

The Castries South East Member of Parliament made the comment in an interview with reporters as the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) held what it called a “thanksgiving” church service today, June 6, 2017 to commemorate the party’s first 12 months in office.

Joseph accuses the SLP of trying to create unrest and destabilise the government. He said once the SLP is in opposition this is expected.

“I must say that they continue to exhibit the traits of character associated with the Labour Party: instability, threats to people and all kinds of things,” Joseph said.

“I mean this is our country and we should not take kindly to any former government or government minister threatening investors. The Labour Party is so well known for this,” he added.

Joseph accused the SLP of making up allegations about investors.

“If the opposition has a problem with the government, deal with the government. Do not bring in the investors and the people into this… Investors do not bring themselves into a country and give themselves anything, so if there is a problem deal with the government,” Joseph stated.

    • WELL, SMART GUY TALKING like father like son try (DETER) although not wrong, however, used in the wrong context DETOUR-different route. "CUT THE GRASS BEHIND THE GRASS" DO OU REALLY THINK THAT ST LUCIANS ARE THAT STUPID. Firstly learn to speak English properly then perhaps, others will listen to you and your puppet.

  3. I am convinced now that the SLP are behaving like a lost and spoiled group unable to cope with their defeat at the polls. Its their way or no way at all.

    But there is a trick. There is also the strong possibility that as masters in the art of distraction that is now their weapon of choice to destabilize the government and keep it occupied in nuisances. Keep it from performing. The UWP then should totally ignore the SLP's antics, do their work and report to the people when necessary.

    The worst thing is to give a deliberate fool attention. Ignore them and let them wake up to wallow in their 11-6 defeat. That should keep the SLP better occupied in trying to understand their defeat.

  4. For 15 years the SLP had deluded St Lucians. Kenny and phillip and alva borrowed $150 to 200 million every year and wasted it. They became millionaires in the process.
    They packed the civil service with thousands of their supporters who waste taxpayers money, give nothing in return and cost the treasury hundreds of millions each year.

    WE ARE BANKRUPT! WE ARE BRUK! WE AE HAVE NO MONEY!

    The figures from previous budgets showed the SLP were not budgeting for things and did not know where revenue was coming from for necessary expenses. It is a catastrophe created by the worst Minister of Finance in our history.

    Chastanet and his Cabinet are trying to dig us out of that financial mess and doing a great job.

You don't care if some of us have to die to regain that power....Sadly some people will gladly do so .Every time the Labour party is removed from office through the Democratic process there is always unrest in our lovely island of St.Lucia.Why don't you just stay on the sidelines and run your mouth but don't think you can come on the field and play.Your color is red well we the majority of St.Lucians give you the red card .let de government of St.Lucians work for we St.Lucians who put them there .if they fail you can always go back to your tired slogan "don't blame me i voted Labour"but i seriously doubt it zot peh because you know that the government just might succeed...
