Tom Chou to return?

Tom Chou to return?

Castries South East MP, Guy Joseph, has declared that the outcome of the last elections was a vote for former Taiwanese Ambassador to Saint Lucia, Tom Chou.

Addressing last night’s Victory Rally of the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) in Micoud North, Joseph said he did not claim the party’s victory at the polls.

“This victory goes to the people of Castries South East. It is you who put Kenny in his place. It is you who told him it is not he who decides who will represent the people of Castries South East. I know that this is a vote for the UWP, but I know that the way you spoke, it is a vote for Tom Chou,” the former minister asserted.

The UWP won the June 6, 2016 general elections by a margin of 11 to 6.

The Castries South East MP said, to roars from the audience, that he would ask new Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, to invite Tom Chou to visit Saint Lucia.

“There are a few people who are good for Saint Lucia that Kenny Kenny wanted to get rid of and Tom Chou was one of them,” Joseph said.

He said he would love to see Chou visit Saint Lucia in an official capacity under the UWP government.

Joseph declared that God has been good to him.

uwp-crowduwp-crowd-2He told the crowd that he had gone through the entire election campaign and had survived.

“I know it was your prayers; I know it was your support; I know it was your words of encouragement, “he said, adding that the fight was on in Castries South East.

Joseph said although he was proud of the people of Saint Lucia, he was more so proud of the people of his Castries South East constituency.

He publicly acknowledged businessman and former labour party candidate, Timothy Mangal, who was on the stage.

Joseph said of Mangal:

“He knew that Kenny and labour were bad news for Saint Lucia.”

Joseph said he and Mangal, former political opponents, had joined forces.

“You have spoken and we have listened. We are ready to work,” he declared, adding that the new UWP government is at work already, even though he has not been sworn in as a minister.

He declared that the UWP candidates are not fighting among themselves.

“We are fighting the victimization of the Saint Lucia Labour Party,” Joseph said.

He said the defeated Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) candidates are afraid and in hiding.

“Have you seen them?” Joseph asked the crowd.

He said when the UWP lost the elections the party took its defeat with dignity.

“The next day you saw us all over the country – We were on the media – we were thanking our people, but where is the labour party today?” Joseph asserted, adding that they were afraid.

Joseph, while in opposition, had a highly publicized clash with then Speaker of the House, Peter Foster last year.

The Castries South East MP, who at one point had accused the Speaker of being a politician, was ultimately prevented from continuing his contribution.

Joseph said to laughter from the crowd last night that he wanted new Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, to hire Foster for the first hour of the sitting of the house of parliament.

“I want to show you what your role is,” he declared in remarks address to Foster.

    i agree with you Guy has to stop behaving like a spoilt child and start working he has no right to ask the Prime Minister on the stage to invite Tom Chou that is for internal and the party to decide, he has to think before he talks and stop making foolish mistakes he forget that all, and i say all, eyes are on him and it is time he starts to write what he is going to say so he will not stray from the topic.
    Finally Tom Chou has done his part give someone else a break.
    UWP has won their seat Guy please have respect for all the members of the UWP and the St. Lucians who went to the poles.
    STOP TRYING TO DO YOUR OWN THING WITHOUT CONSULTING THE OTHER MEMBERS.,YOU TOO HAVE TO FALL IN LINE and remember that you are no longer on the opposite side. You are to serve God and the people of this country.

    St Lucia cannot be used as a political football between Taiwan and China and Tom Chou has no role being back in St Lucia. It’s time for Guy Joseph to watch his mouth.

    Guys this was just talk and humor at a political rally. If that was a government function I would agree with you all holy and solely. I think the PM knows better, Remember when ALVA said over his dead body Chastenet would never become Prime Minister of these country on an SLP plat form? how the crowd erupted. The supporters were enjoying the humor and phrases. Remember poodles only stay in the house!!!!!!!!!!!

    We can always identity sheep in wolves clothing whenever cats belly is full the rats head always biter. Whenever Slp lost they always have negative things to say about UWP. it becomes a boring tradition that will not go away.

      dear you are missing the point. It becomes a shame for St Lucia when the nation spoke loud and clear to politicians that we don’t want the pointing of fingers, that we don’t want the uncivilized behaviour. Leave campaigning for the time of campaigning. Who is bitter? Seems to me Guy is forgetting his role himself, We voted you in to make a difference not to make a fool of yourself and our new prime minister. Know your role and put yourself in line because we as St Lucians will surely show you yours if you don’t fall in line. And dear as a st Lucian you need to grow up and stop seeing red and yellow

      Man there’s no shame in getting dough from Mr. Chou. People became millionaires over night with Taiwanese monies. After they helped themselves the rest trickles down to the little people to do community works and IMF monies takes care of things we don’t see; top secret things even. Therefore the return of Tom Chou or some one similar to him is critical for the upkeep of communities and keeping the dough flowing and not for the enriching of Reps like that Guy who are now hunting larger game. Remember Chou is also the Rep for Gros- Islet Spider just holding the seat till his glorious return.

      Kenny just have a case of sour grapes that’s why he said all those things about the great Chou.

    Am hoping its just humour. We are intend to see MPs taking our country business seriously and professionally. We can have fun I guess but there should be a distinction made. When we voted Tom Chou was not on our minds neither was there mention of him on any platform according to memory. Anyway if he is a serious persuit I expect it to be professional and within statutes only. Our eyes are on you ll….don’t form it /(the @r$$).
