The leader of he opposition United Workers Party (UWP), Allen Chastanet, accusing Prime Minister Doctor Kenny Anthony of believing that the people of Saint Lucia are his employees, has asserted that the real boss in the people.
“That’s the mistake he keeps making every day, because he forgets who the boss is,” Chastanet told a meeting of the UWP at Tete Chemin on Tuesday night.
He told the meeting that Anthony is treating the people that he believes are his employees worse than if they were working on a plantation.
“The little money you had in your pocket, he is not happy to see you have that money so he must take it way,” the UWP leader said, adding that the UWP’s belief is that money is better placed in the pockets of citizens than in hoe of the government.
“That is the change that has to take place,” Chastanet declared, while pointing to the Labor government’s imposition of VAT, increased unemployment and other conditions under the current administration.
“This is the wickedness this man has done to this country,” the UWP leader said, referring to the economic decisions made as “Kenny-nomics.”
He urged the people of Saint Lucia to say no to “Kenny-nomics” and announced plans for a protest march, the date for which he did not disclose.
“The only way Kenny will hear us is when we come out and march together hand in hand and say no more Kenny-nomics,” Chastanet declared to applause from UWP supporters.
“The labor government has to go. Enough is enough,” the UWP leader told party faithful, while urging hem to support the protest march.
He disclosed that he had spoken to a seventy-six year old woman in Micoud who told him that if the UWP could not afford to pay for a bus to get her to Castries to support the event, she would walk.
“All of you must find your way there,” the UWP leader urged, adding: “Do not lave this job to anybody else.”
The Times understands that the UWP protest march is being planned for some time next month.
