Opposition criticizes government over fuel increases

The opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has criticized the government over the latest increase in fuel prices.

SLP General Secretary, Leo Clarke, has said that the increases come as no surprise.

“What we said previously even before polls is that these things are not within our control,” Clarke recalled.

The opposition spokesman told reporters that before the polls which the SLP lost by a margin of 11-6, there was a suggestion by the then opposition United Workers Party (UWP) that the labour government was manipulating the price of fuel and imposing unnecessary taxes.

Clarke asserted that the UWP administration is now in a position to examine the books and the formula that is used.

“If it was possible to reduce the price, I suppose by now they would,” the SLP official declared.

He described the UWP’s position on fuel as part of a series of lies told to the electorate.

According to Clarke, UWP leader Allen Chastanet does not know how to tell the truth.

    And black people love being enslaved and rammed to the ground by non-blacks. UWP consisting of an all Blacks, happily handed their power over to a lying a$$ White man.
