PRESS RELEASE:-The Saint Lucia Labour Party notes with dismay that so early in its term the United Workers Party regime has embarked on the practice of a politics of pettiness and childishness when its full attention and energies should be focused on fulfilling its many election promises.
This is the only interpretation which can be given to the shameful removal of the plaque recognizing the Official Opening in the year 2002, of the Beausejour Cricket Grounds by the Hon Mario Michel, the then Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Youth and Sports in the Saint Lucia Labour Party Government.
The Saint Lucia Labour Party fully supports the decision by the then Government led by Hon Dr Kenny D Anthony to honor our cricket hero Daren Sammy, by renaming the Stadium in his honor.
However, the removal of the plaque is a futile attempt to erase the fact that the stadium was built by a Saint Lucia Labour Party Government for the people of Saint Lucia.
The Saint Lucia Labour party would like to remind the government that history is like the truth, permanent and unchangeable.
