Pierre Hits Out At Destruction Of Government Property

spot_img

Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has spoken out against the destruction of property built by the government while reporting progress regarding infrastructural work in his Castries East constituency.

“The infrastructural work in Castries East has been progressing steadily over the last two years, and we have only just begun,” Pierre wrote on Facebook.

“I solicit your patience as we attempt to address the longstanding issues in our communities, which were punished during the last administration because you voted Labour,” he said.

But, he asserted that people could not destroy facilities and expect the government to rebuild them.

“We spent one million dollars on the Marchand Ground. We did changing rooms. We put in toilets. We re-fenced the entire place. We put lights in. We redid the field and we were going to do the pavillion,” he told a recent constituency gathering.

“They mashed it up. They destroyed it,” the PM stated, adding there was no excuse for destroying facilities the government has built.

He also mentioned the James Belgrave court.

“We fenced it. We did changing rooms. We put a little pavillion. They destroyed it,” Pierre lamented.

Nevertheless, he said the government would redo the work.

But he warned that this time, the security forces would be told to arrest anyone vandalising the facilities built by the government for the people.

He said it would not matter who the guilty party is.

“You could have a red shirt with Philip J. Pierre on both sides,” he told his audience at the constituency conference.

He said either money from friendly governments or taxpayers fund the facilities.

Pierre believes all Members of Parliament, regardless of party affiliation, should get the necessary state resources to facilitate community projects.

The Castries East MP noted that unlike the previous United Workers Party (UWP) administration, as Prime Minister, he has ensured that all elected representatives receive an allocation under the Constituency Development Programme.

However, he observed that the people of his constituency were ‘Belrose Doctrine’ victims.

As a result, Pierre recalled that the constituency suffered neglect for almost six years.

“As the elected Member of Parliament for Castries East, it is my honour to serve my constituency,” he declared.

  1. Has PJP once again blamed Us for the failures of the sporting facilities. PJ “They” or We get blamed for everything. So the Police nvr had the power to arrest persons found guilty of breaking the law, i.e. destroying public property. Oh and special permission it seems is needed to arrest ppl with PJP shirts or SLP supporters, may i add. SMH. I wish my PM would talk less.

  2. Before the yellow Clowns hacks start to bark mention where stated “The Castries East MP noted THAT UNLIKE THE PREVIOUS UNITED WORTHLESS PARTY ADMINISTRATION, as Prime Minister he has ensured that ALL ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES RECEIVE AN ALLOCATION UNDER THE CONSTITUENCY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM”, In other words I AM NOT BAD MIND LIKE THE YELLOW JOHNCROWS.

  3. Good job Mr.Prime Liar. Keep improving the infrastructure. The next thing which should be on your Agenda is to speak the truth. Regardless of the situation always deliver the facts – that is a sign of respect.

  4. All you do Mr pm is criticize the other administration did the people vote for you to complain… just childish

  5. Talking about Marchand, it doesn’t surprise anyone that this is simply hooliganism, and it has always been that way. Whereas, the stopping midway during construction of the Modern Hospital to serve the South, and letting it rut after spending $millions, is an act of pure hatred of one set of Cabinet members against Chastanet in particular(racism??)and short sightedness, small mindedness and pure ignorance. When shall we grow up small Islanders.

  6. I THINK HE IS MISTAKING WEAR AND TEAR FOR DESTROY OR DAMAGING PROPERTY. PPL HAVE TO USE THE GROUNDS THATS WHY THEY WERE BUILT.

  7. Between Chas and Pierre, who do you consider to be a bigger LIAR? To substantiate your evidence name 3 lies that person has said.

  8. PJP doesn’t know the difference between being a leader of a political party and a leader of a country. This is beyond sad. There is never an utterance from him to unite. Always divisive, and that will be his downfall.

    Somebody, anybody, please teach PJP how to be a STATESTMAN.

  9. You PJP have been in government for 20 years in the last 30, while UWP only 10 but you have the guts to insult our intelligent blaming the opposition for your incompetent and laziness. You should be ashamed of yourself for making these these untruth. You have the place as a slum and a big ghetto and haven’t done nothing for we the people. So wheel and come again sir, just throw your hands in the air and give up.

  10. @TMHLH – amazing that he doesn’t see himself as a “hack” as well; and a red one too. It takes one to know one.

    Anyway. PJP always seems to put his big foot in his small mouth. WHY seem to blame politics, instead of looking at the “possibilities”. While his office was “out of power”, he could, and should’ve been motivating the constituents to do better for the community! That is how one can woo people to your side. PJP does not seem to have a clue for diplomacy – I wish he would. Instead he is a cry-baby. That is why some people claim that he is better at opposition, than steering the wheel like a driver.

  11. Any party the takes down foreign investments of agricultural products should not be put in power but we lack the knowledge to realize who is on our side. right now we are hopping on one foot of tourism but not for long because nothing lasts forever and we have no plan b no plantations being sold just tourism. How embarrassing!
