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.
