CASTRIES, Saint Lucia – The UnitedPac is growing increasingly concerned at the Saint Lucia Labour Party’s desperation to grab at anything that sounds like something good is happening in St. Lucia. After their failed attempt in spinning quarterly unemployment figures as annual figures, they have now latched onto the latest 24th November IMF report which states that our economy grew by 0.5 percent in 2014.
A detailed look at the report shows that this figure is based on market prices, which does factor the effect of price change. When comparing year-to-year growth rates, the ideal is the Real growth rate, which was -0.7 in 2014 and which was correctly reported by the PM during his Budget speech this year.
Is the PS of Finance another spin-doctor for the Saint Lucia Labour Party? The IMF report did state that he the PS of Finance met with the delegation.
The Saint Lucia Labour Party can spin all they want but they will never get the people of this country confused. The UnitedPac will continue to agitate for good governance and accountability for the people of this great country. We know what we feel and it is quite clear that this country is in reverse.
