(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – The United Workers Party has issued a severe condemnation of statements made in the House of Parliament by the Member from Laborie, Alva Baptiste.

In what it describes as ludicrous, insultive, and a total fabrication, the UWP is shocked that Alva Baptiste would have the gall to accuse the United Workers Party of using the ‘N’ word when referring to members of the Opposition.

The UWP also expresses further shock that Alva Baptiste went further to allege that the Opposition was also referred to as “dogs” and “terrorists.”

The UWP wants to make it abundantly clear that at no time has any member referred to the Opposition with those words.

In fact, it is SLP members, and in particular the Vieux Fort South MP who referred to Hon. Guy Joseph of the UWP as a “poodle” and “coolie.”

We find it hypocritical and amazing that the member for Laborie, Alva Baptiste, is the one who has engaged in reckless statements in the past, along with his other SLP colleagues.

The United Workers Party calls on all Saint Lucians to condemn these baseless allegations made in our House of Parliament, and demands an apology from Alva Baptiste.

We are convinced that these continued racist and insultive comments made by Alva Baptiste were designed to sow seeds of discord in Saint Lucia knowing they were patently false.

The UWP views this as yet another attempt by the SLP to mislead the people of Saint Lucia by uttering blatantly false accusations in the hallowed chambers of our Parliament.

  2. AUDI DRIVING LABOUR PARTY SUPPORTER

    Alva Fancies himself party leader...lol....a two bit mouthtrap who was given the foreign affairs ministry so that he would not be on island talking the half intelligible gibberish that he does in the house. Chas has you Jackasses cornered. You oversaw a wasted five years. No amount of shouting, lying or marching is going to stop the 60% of Saint Lucians from never voting you in again. Hillaire is going to get rid of Alva when he takes over the party in a year a anyway!

  8. Now I see why there have been so many destructive fires all over the place.
    First verbally, then physically. Leave the damn Hospitals alone, they will be built in time.
    Learn to speak with a civil tongue in the 'House' with the respect that the nation deserve.

  9. You all need to stop campaigning and start governing. You issue more press releases aimed at the opposition than those aimed at informing the public on what you are doing or plan to do. You were handed the mandate to work for the people, your obsession with the opposition is hindering your own progress. WAKE UP!

  10. When did nigga become a bad word in Saint Lucia?
    we are not in the US!
    Please......
    Their history is different from ours.
    The whites in the US stayed in America and wanted the blacks out.
    The whites in the Caribbean left the blacks to fend for themselves.
    We didn't sit in the back of the bus.
    the whole bus was ours!
