“It is becoming rather ANNOYING!”

“It is becoming rather ANNOYING!”

Media and Communications Specialist Clinton L. Reynolds has urged the St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) to concentrate on the struggling economy and stop bashing Mary Isaac, president of the Civil Service Association (CSA).

Reynolds was responding to recent press releases penned by the SLP and the Office of the Prime Minister, which have questioned Isaac’s relationship with the main opposition United Workers Party (UWP).

The latest SLP press release, distributed this morning, called on “the public to judge for itself this statement written by Mary Isaac yesterday, Sunday, July 6 in a Whatsapp chat csa2014 and beyond: “Good morning. Remember to watch Chastenet’s (sic) Program on DBS tonight at around 8pm. Licks in Govt tail.””

Reynolds’ response came just over three hours after that press release was received by St. Lucia News Online.

In an email to all media, the journalist stated: “The SLP should be more concerned about the economy and closing the deficit while it sits in the seat of government than with the statements made by Mary Isaac. Mary Isaac was just re-elected to head the CSA by an overwhelming margin, and that speaks volumes.

“It’s becoming rather annoying that the Labour Party continues to get caught up with Mary Isaac and her politics (whatever her agenda) than on the burning issues that affect ALL Saint Lucians at this time – JOBS and THE ECONOMY.

“If Mary Isaac wants to politick, for whichever side, that’s her right under the constitution per freedom of association. I think, in her position, if what has been stated is correct, there needs to be a greater level of responsibility exercised on her part, but that is only my view.

“But, come on! It’s time to raise the level of politics and discourse on this island!”

Reynolds is also president of the Media Association of St. Lucia and managing director of Infinite Horizons, Inc.

  1. The IMF will do what Kenny is hesitant to do. Don't rush the brush. The IMF has all the answers to solve all our fiscal problems. Soon come.

  3. Luchee,
    My agenda is for Saint Lucia and Saint Lucians to focus on the issues facing us. Too often we're caught up with personalities rather than the issues. Let the Labour Party provide options to get us out of the mess we're in. Let the opposition provide solutions to our problem rather than castigate and criticise the government. And let those who have not been elected to represent us Shut Up! rather than come across like someone has vested the stewardship of our country to them.

    • My brother, the opposition is just that...when you are in opposition you seem to know the answer to all problems. When dispensation is handed to you and you have the keys to the nations treasury. Areee, how different things become. Remember, we are not a homogeneous society. We are all share holders in our democracy, not passive observers. If you the media was on top things, miss Isaac would not be palling around with the opposition. We have seen more balls coming from her than we have seen coming from your inept media. Miss Isaac has exposed these imbeciles and parasites for what their truly are. Where have you the media being up to all this time?. Last but not least: point to one investigative report hilighting the plight of the people as a result of this inept PM....peace

    • I guess you are also one of those who believe in victimization with close association to the SLP. What about what he says that warrants him not having a job? Guess the truth hit home right? Lighten up and rise up....With all these trifling matters going on no wonder St. Lucia is recorded as having the second lowest IQ in the world. You seem to fall in that category...

  4. Again I say Kenny has already made up his mind...Like it or not Civil servants will loose 5% of their GROSS Salary ..Jadia is trying to distract people from what is really going on with her childish tactics...That money is as good as gone..Listen to what jadia said in an interview "The prime minister is prepared to make the best decision for the country if consensus is NOT REACHED. "Read between the lines people..there is no sense in negations in this case the decision is already made. Mary issac is the only Union Leader who has realized that. This is why they are trying desperately to discredit her.

  6. Jadia needs to pay back to the country for the medical expenses that were paid in full. We want all back, including the allowances all you asses in government are getting. Kenny you put us in that mess because of your mismanagement, you take us out. All the money you took and invested it in T & T

  7. Totally agree with you Mr. Reynolds. It is rather annoying and embarrassing for people in the highest offices of the land to behave in this manner.
    Can they me more professional than this?

  8. Kenny has to come out and admit that his policies have not worked. He thought they would, of that I have no doubt; no politicians worth their salt (A phrase, by the way that harps back to the time when Roman soldiers were partly paid in salt, a valuable commodity at the time. The word was ‘sal’, from which we get ‘salary’ – just thought you’d like to know.) would ever pursue policies doomed to failure unless they believed there was a fortune or two in it for them.

    • I know for sure, I WILL NEVER AGAIN VOTE a St Lucia Labour Party headed by Kenny Anthony. I will never stop supporting my party, I have been Labour long before Kenny, Lorne, Robert and so many currently in the Labour Party and will be Labour long after them. But a Labour Party headed by Kenny, NO

  14. Why aren't they focus on stopping all the excess travelling by the Minister of Foreign Affairs? I work on the airport I can tell you that he is more out than in and let for one moment the VIP lounge is not ready 'to his standard', well lets just say the only thing he hasn't done to us (the staff} is spit on us. STOP THE LARGESSE - PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING.
