Their accusation is preposterous, dishonest and a lie.
The SLP attempt to discredit this young gentleman, his girlfriend and his family by insinuating that they were planted by the opposition is disingenuous and callous. Their assertion displays total disrespect and ingratitude to a family who has devoted its loyal support to the St. Lucia Labour Party for decades.
Their stance clearly demonstrates that this SLP administration will not only utilize any means possible to silence criticism of its ineptitude by the opposition and the media, but will also not hesitate to sacrifice its own supporters in order to achieve its selfish and deleterious ends.
We believe that rather than battering our well-meaning and worried youth of St. Lucia, this SLP administration should devote the rest of its term in office to satisfy its promise of ‘jobs, jobs, jobs’ for the youth and not only its nepotistic JFTB programme of ‘jobs for the boys’.
The SLP administration should also publicly acknowledge to the youth of St. Lucia who are presently the demographic group most savagely impacted by the ravages of high unemployment, that their policies to grow the economy and provide sustainable jobs have failed miserably.
Furthermore, the UWP Soufriere/Fond St. Jacques Constituency Branch calls on the Saint Lucia Labour Party to stop blaming the United Workers Party, the media and the youth of St. Lucia for the mess that they have landed us all into.
