The United Workers Party (UWP) will stage a “massive” national rally this Sunday, August 25, 2013 in Vieux Fort.

A press release states that the event will include two motorcades which will travel along the western and eastern coasts of the island.

The rally, according to the party, comes after the “phenomenal success” of its recent 37th National Convention.

“The event seeks to build on the heightened and growing interest in the party as it prepares to take over the reins of governance when the opportunity arises,” the release said.

Party, supporters and enthusiasts will hear from the newly elected leadership and other speakers “who will address a litany of concerns and the unprecedented hardship facing all Saint Lucians under the rule of the Labour Party Administration,” the release said.

“The rally will be a demonstration of party unity and strength as the UWP readies itself to regain office and restore confidence and pride in Saint Lucians locally and in the diaspora,” the release also said.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. near the Vieux Fort Town Hall. Motorcades will leave Castries and Soufriere at 12 noon and traverse various communities in a “post-convention show of force.”

“The Vieux Fort rally is the first of a series of activities to mobilize the party’s base and consolidate the UWP as a viable and potent political force. The United Workers Party has assumed the posture of a more organized and vigilant opposition, and is committed to giving quality representation to the people whilst preparing for the good governance of the country after the next general elections,” the release said.

  1. Oh Harry your English needs to be updated Sir. In the past, English teachers used to preach that one should never start a sentence with conjunctions like “and" or “but". Does this rule still apply today?
    Not entirely. It is already acceptable to start sentences with such conjunctions. Some authorities, in fact, even defend that for some cases conjunctions will do a better job than more formal constructions. Here is a quotation from Ernest Gowers addressing the usage of and on the beginning of sentences:

    That it is a solecism to begin a sentence with and is a faintly lingering superstition.

    The OED gives examples ranging from the 10th to the 19th c.; the Bible is full of them.

    While it is acceptable to use such conjunctions to start a sentence, you should still use them carefully and efficiently, else your text might become choppy.

    Secondly, many people still regard such usage as informal. If you are writing a formal piece or if you are not sure how your audience might react to conjunctions at the beginning of a sentence, you could substitute them with more formal terms.

  2. Uncle X,
    I do not have the time to teach persons the correct use of English.I suggest what they can do to improve their competency in the area.
    Most of my contributions deal with the issues raised in the news items.
    When rhetorial questions are asked, generally answers are not expected,however in some instances answers are provided with a view to broadening the discussion.
    You suggested that should I find errors in your sentence structure or grammar i should point them out.
    Are you aware that the word AND is a CONJUNCTION and therefore it is inappropriate to use it to begin a sentence?
    I await your enlighened response.

  4. What change, is it for the better or for the worse Why didn't they do it for the 5 years they were there, when things should have been better with all the aide from Taiwan, after hurricane Debbie, after the st jude fire, With the mess that the uwp left fair Helen you think any government that just comes in would be able to turn things around so quickly, especially in this global recession.Chastenet was minister of tourism, what growth did he bring except to spend, spend,spend with no accountability
    For my Lucian people to believe that chastenet and his cohorts at the uwp will do for them think twice. Ask about his Soufriere candidacy, his Relationship with litten and eroline, firing of poor people in Soufriere., the Taiwanese fund, the town council, etc etc

  5. The place is overloaded with bad English yet we want to correct each other. Every sentence starts with a space after a full stop and don't forget capitalization. You can't write every word in full caps, this is a bad practice. And its not “leave the party be"...it is more correct to say “let the party be". Chk, wri, b4...they are not complete English words, therefore it is incorrect to write such while pointing out someone's mistake. “U Speak thank U" is an incomplete sentence with a poor structure. Please correct your errors before you post your suggestive corrections to others. And Harry, you don't ask rhetorical questions and go about answering them which will defeat the rightful purpose of speaking rhetorically. May I remind you Sir that though English may be your strongest language its never wise to go ahead correcting people without laying out the corrections but blatant insults which shows that you're not capable of any better. Now please stick to the topic of the said rally or correct me wherever you think your English is strong enough to let you identify any errors and bad sentence structure.

  6. Sad to say that Saint Lucians really need to grow up politically. We are left behind by the rest of the world due to our lack of intelligence on the way we vote. It is about time that we begin to think seriously about our future and make the right decisions that will benefit us all, forget the colour RED AND YELLOW vote for candidates who can lead us. At present we are the laughing stockof the world because we do not know what we are voting for and what we think is best for the country. We the younger generation need to advocate change and we need to first be the change that we want to see. Attend both parties meetings and make informed decisions based on that, mummy and daddy voted for different causes what is your cause? Live in your time vote for what you want!!!!!!!! At the end of it all you and I stand to loose NEVER the politicians.

  10. tenisha,
    You gave advice to CONCERN.You definitely need as well.You wrote,"Not for that you all can ever win an election" THIS IS BAD ENGLISH.please enroll in a program which offers USE OF ENGLISH as a subject.
    May i inform you that such a subject is offered as part of a university program.Are you academically qualified to be admitted to a university?I doubt that.Your only recourse is to enroll in a LANGUAGE ARTS PROGRAMME which caters for students with grade five language proficiency.
    Hope you accept this advice .This time,please try to learn.
