Doctor Ubaldus Raymond ashamed of country

Doctor Ubaldus Raymond, former government official in the Doctor Kenny Anthony administration,  has told supporters of the opposition that today he is ashamed of Saint Lucia.

Raymond recalled living in the United States for almost twenty years.

He said he taught at universities for fourteen years.

“Every time I stood up before my students I always talk about how proud I was when it came to Saint Lucia, but today I walk with my head in shame,” Raymond said.

The former Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Commerce, Business Development, Investment and Consumer Affairs resigned from the post in August, 2012.

He declared that the substance of governance is with the opposition United Workers Party (UWP).

“Labour has failed and they have failed the people of this country,” Raymond asserted.

He said only a few persons have benefitted under the Saint Lucia Labour Party administration.

As a result, Raymond called on the majority to get rid of labour at the June 6, 2016 general elections.

“Kenny and Labour have embarrassed the people of this country and that’s the reason why we must take them out,” he stated.

According to the Raymond, never in Saint Lucia’s history has there been unemployment of 24.5 percent.

He recalled that just recently the statistics department released the figures for the last quarter of 2015.

“We dropped from 24 percent to 20.5 percent and this is what they are telling you is the unemployment rate for 2015. It is a lie!” The Economist said.

Doctor Ubaldus Raymond, who contested the 2011 elections on an SLP ticket, recalled having warned the party that its policies would harm Saint Lucia.

He stated that events since then have proved that he was right.

“My friends if we don’t remove Kenny and labour we will be finished in this country,” Raymond warned.

He expressed the view that Anthony did the country a favour when he called elections on June 6, 2016.

“We are going to nail him for the last time and retire him on June 6,” Raymond told UWP supporters.

    Really?! Not a word during the 5 years when the country was so-called doing “bad” but you crawled out of the hole you came from now to condemn the SLP? If you warned them when you went up on their ticket, why are you now sounding an alarm? Why didn’t you before call on Kenny and his incorrect policies when you resigned? You resigned and not a peep from you all these years but now you want to guide St. Lucians? Go back to the hole you crawled out of. St. Lucians know exactly what they have to do. You input is not required.

      You obviously were in la la land when he left. He did make this pronouncements when he resigned. When he excelled at his new job people were quick to point out his accomplishments and sadness that he did not stay. It took PEP a long 5 yrs to realize that he was only a pawn in the game. Why couldn’t he have been given a better job along the lines of his expertise? Rather we took a teacher and former principal to lead to the Ministry of Health rather than a healthcare professional. Also I am yet to see the end result of the work of the Minister of Justice. Political parties need to stop using persons as pawns to gain votes. From your list of candidates the electorate should be able to tell what jobs each candidate would hold when elected. Stop putting square pegs in round holes.

      You mean the man left to take up a position in which he excelled at and was recognized by the world for his achievements and that is the best you can come up with. Lol….. Politics really eating at some of your brains. While I do not support him doing this on the political platform going against his former party but from someone who has proven his worth in his field of expertise I have reason to support him. Kenny should have reached out to him to have him come back because everyone knows of his accomplishments now. The fact that this did not happen shows that there was a sour split between the two.

    I knew this man personally. All he does is look for opportunities for himself and no one else. He walks around with his head held high, higher than everyone else’s and looks down on people. Have you every heard his fake American accent. People like that cannot be trusted. The character of people like this needs to seriously be questioned. How do you jump from one party to the next so quickly with really no proper reason. My advice to you mister Raymond, stay in your section

    I know this man Dr. Ubaldus Raymond personally and professionally. It is obvious that these party hacks are singing for their supper. Labour has obviously brought some of our people to an all-time low. Dr. Raymond don’t worry with those hacks…you are a man of substance, intelligence and integrity…yo pere!

    He didn’t get what he wanted back then…he left for seemingly greener pastures, the same country introduced numerous taxes, they refused to renew his contract, he is now back with empty bowl in his hand and he jumps unto the next ‘seemingly’ bright spark!..big news..all them fellas loose!

    Look folks stop looking at this through partisan lenses. What has happened there is shameful. Only a few days ago some of you very same persons were criticizing Donald Trump for similarly shameful behavior, but now as the scandal is happening in your own backyard you allow your party affiliations to get in the way. I beliieve Prime Minister Chastanet easily replace Dr Ubaldus Raymond thereby doing away with all the distraction that this scandal carries and then refocus on the serious problems facing the country such as unemployment, crime and our disgraceful healthcare system. Not only has Dr Raymond behaved inappropriately but he has also behaved rather stupidly in the way he has compromised himself. And just as U S Senator Anthony Weiner has to resign his position when he did the exact same thing as Dr Raymond, likewise Dr Raymond should do us all a favor and humbly submit his resignation.
