Peter Alexander criticizes the media

Peter Alexander, the Chairman of the Organization for National Empowerment (ONE), believes that a “large percentage” of the media here have their own agenda.

“If what you say does not suit them then obviously, you are ostracized,” Alexander asserted.

The comments of the ONE Chairman came as he acknowledged that his political group has been in hibernation.

He attributed the situation to the media not seeing it fit to asking ONE’s opinion on a number of issues.

“We were ready to comment,” Alexander told reporters.

He said now that persons are aware that the organization has an opinion on matters, they can approach the group to get its views on issues that affect the country.

“We have always been there – it is just that the media have stopped seeking us questions because they felt our position was too in line with the last administration,” Peter Alexander observed.

With regard to the new government of Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, he felt that Chastanet should explain the new configuration of his cabinet to the nation.

Alexander was also of the opinion that Chastanet needs to address the matter of fuel prices, following this week’s announcement of an increase.

He recalled that Chastanet’s party, which was then in opposition, had organized a march over fuel prices.

Alexander said he remembered that several persons attempting to explain to the United Workers Party (UWP) leader, that the government did not have control over fuel prices and was not making extra money on fuel.

“But lo and behold, Mr. Chastanet was paying no mind,” the ONE official declared.

Alexander said:

“He really believed that the last administration was superficially keeping the prices high. He is now in office and needs to investigate what he claimed happened and let us know by how much we were overcharged for the gas and reduce it by that amount. Failing that he needs to accept that he was wrong.”

Peter Alexander explained that politicians should learn to be careful what they say, because it can come back to haunt them.

    His lies and deception will inevitably destroy him. You can win an Election on lies. But to Govern a Nation deals with Reality and Truth. And now we can see the lies of Chastanet are slowly creeping in. And now he is going in Hibernation. So why has he not explained to his poor Black supporters as to the reasons gas prices have gone up? Is he going to demonstrate against ‘Himself”? His own Poor Black Supporters have NO clue how to access this Pappyshow of a Cabinet and ministries, Michael Chastanet and Gordon “Butch” Stewart has set-up. And Allen-The Boy, has thrown in the Faces of his own Poor Black Supporters. Exit-Left.

    Is Peter Alexander for real? Which party does he run? ONE does not even qualify to be called a few, or a group, of a club. Even gangs have more visible membership than ONE. So no journalist will waste time seeking any opinions from any ONE. If you say Peter Alexander yes but not ONE.

    Fact is Alexander himself is he biggest betrayal of ONE since he really is an arm of the SLP and Alexander only exploits the idea of ONE as a covet for his clandestine relations with the SLP. So in reality ONE really does not exist. Just a figment of Alexander’s imagination.

    The price that was increased was what Kenny had sign before the general election fuel was suppose to be reduce on June 06 2016,what Allan signed for was for the next decrease in gas price.so to clearify that’s what it is,so the recent increase was already signed by Kenny for the June 6 2016 fuel increase

    I won’t even waste my time to read this entire article cause I can’t believe that anyone in the media would be wasting time and effort in featuring this man as a party making news. As far as I am concerned he is nothing but a fraud decending into a one man “party” everytime the SLP is in opposition. Is he trying to give himself relevance by pretending that he is not aligned to the SLP? This man is not a party, he is one man trying to help the SLP get back in office.

    So, one of ONE has finally resurfaced, 5 years after the previous general elections. Mr. One of ONE, a few questions for you:

    1. Why, after almost five years, have you decided to start crying out for the people again?
    2. Where were you when important matters of interest to the St. Lucian people needed to be spoken about?
    3. What kickback(s) did you receive from the SLP administration/ party over the last five years?
    4. Are you saying that the media ‘ostracized’ you over the last five years? During this time, did you ever reach out to them to express your views on any issue? Are you saying that you did, and that they failed to carry your story?
    5. When you refer to ONE as ‘we’, who are these other phantom members of ONE? Is it that you are the Borg, and simply part of the SLP collective?

    Mr. Alexander, please stop attempting to insult us St. Lucians, for we see right through your red-veiled charade. We will respect you more if you were to openly speak out as an operative of the SLP rather than this sniveling person ‘representing’ this sham of ONE.
