Opposition leader Allen Chastanet Sunday compared Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre and the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) to a destructive hurricane, asserting that they have become this country’s worst disaster.

“They have been like a hurricane. They have destroyed agriculture. They have destroyed tourism. They have destroyed the infrastructure in our country. They have increased the cost of living in our country,” Chastanet said.

He spoke at a UWP Town Hall meeting in Soufriere, where he also accused the SLP of increasing unemployment and adding more taxes than ever in Saint Lucia’s history.

The former Prime Minister said his United Workers Party (UWP) was reducing taxes.

He told the UWP Town Hall meeting that there had been unprecedented victimisation under the SLP.

“We are now living in a country of fear, instead of a country of hope,” the Micoud South MP asserted.

However, he explained that the UWP was preparing a better plan than before.

“We will be announcing candidates that you will all be proud of – candidates that will work together for one single goal, to make Saint Lucia the best place to live, the best place to work and the best place to visit,” Chastanet stated.

He declared that the UWP would fight for every single Saint Lucian and do everything to improve their lives.

The opposition leader recalled Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre saying persons in the UWP wake up trying to determine how they could hurt Saint Lucia.

“I want to say to him that if I genuinely, or any one of us genuinely wanted to hurt Saint Lucia, we would leave him there,” Chastanet asserted.

He said Pierre and the SLP represented the biggest disaster ever to hit Saint Lucia.

  1. funny enough the PM said he fear hurricane he don’t sleep when there is one so practically there are about 4 in the Atlantic i wonder he must be day dreaming still

  2. chas do you really think before you speak. I really don’t know why some people listen to you politricktions . do you guys really care about st Lucia and st lucians ? you guys just like the power that’s all.

  3. 2.5% levy is a gimmick, they didn’t want to raise VAT to 15% so they did this instead. It looks like a small number so they don’t scare people but adding 2.5% and then 12.5% would be higher than 15%. All of this is to “protect the victory” while playing silly games.

  4. Sure, HURRICANE ALLEN. 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不

  5. It amazes me the comments of those SLP hacks. It is so ignorant. No justification. Can you imagine John Smith’s comment? He must be hurting.

  6. Imagine blaming Chas for the issues in our country when the SLP has been in power for the last 4 out of 6 terms.

  7. It amazes me the level of stupidity that comes from this idiot’s mouth. It is as though his mouth surprises his mind with the amount of sh*t that it has to process.

  8. @Poor SLP me hurting you have a laugh mate. I don’t depend on politicians for nothing. Everything I have I earned it from working at HIA to hotel and now on a cruise ship.

  9. John Smith comments is a perfect example of an Irony: Hurricane Allen calling the present Prime Minister a Hurricane. John Smith spoiled it with too many emoticons. He should have simply said, Hurricane Allen calling Hurricane Phillip a Hurricane.

  10. No doubt you have a document on your desk that will bring down the inflation of prices as soon as you get into office.

  11. This is the same guy who told us he would remove VAT entirely. When he came in . . . . NOPE. He was like “I will revove 2.5% VA”. In the same breath, he immediately placed a 2.5% tax on gasoline.

  12. Cabot has been a hurricane cat 5+ for all of us in Cap and Cas En Bas, they are jackhammering all day Saturday and sundays claiming its not them whilst in there 350 acres Chas sold them夸ackhammer along with all during the week!!!色. Who outside of Cabot has accessed donkey and secret beach?.?..?色.. smph hurricane phockin CabOT!,,,,,,,

  13. After he signs the document that’s sitting on his desk to stop the inflation in prices, his next statement to the people will be, he needs 3 years to fix the economy so the country can reap the benefits from the grandiose plans he has in place to Make St. Lucia great again. lol me and them politickchiens.

  14. St lucians are so stupid.the prime Ministers cannot make changes without God.we st lucians need God in the midst of everything that is happening and we have never seen itinerary that in history. Pierre needs to step down and st lucians we need to do something as soon as possible to get this man out of there.some stucians are sleeping but I cannot blame them because some of them like handouts. We are in trouble st lucia was sold to who we dont even know.we need to seek gods face and ask him to take back st lucia from the hands of the wicked people right now only God that can help us put of this mess and studies dont take it for a joke we are in serious trouble. St lucians gave God a back seat to welcome the devils and their agents.we need to understand that st lucia have never been in this mess no food there are now having lack of so many things in st lucia.st lucians you all must remember those warning
