Opposition leader commits to working with government to keep Saint Lucians safe

Opposition leader, Philip J. Pierre , has  committed to working with the government to ensure that the people of Saint Lucia are not unduly affected by the current weather system.

In a statement today Pierre advised Acting Prime Minister, Lenard ‘Spider’ Montoute, that since the impending storm is expected to affect Saint Lucia sometime this afternoon, he should advise that businesses be closed before midday.

Pierre said this would to allow persons travelling outside Castries to get to their homes at the earliest.

He noted that as is the usual custom, the Leader of the Opposition was not invited to the first STRIKE meeting OF NEMAC yesterday.

He has urged all residents of Saint Lucia to take the necessary precautions in order to minimise the loss of life or property that may result from the impending weather event.

The Saint Lucia Labour Party leader has advised residents to listen attentively to official weather advisories from the Met Office and to follow all instructions given by NEMO.

    If Phillip Pierre is sincere about working WITH the government at this time for the safety of St. Lucians (putting country before party/self) then why does his press release have to say that he was not included in a meeting. Who you think you fooling Pierre…Choops tan. Stop politicizing everything and help from the bottom of your heart, not according to what the eyes of man can see. Remember GOD the righteous judge sees and knows our innermost thoughts and motives.

      It is quite obvious Angela this incident has touched you and touched you hard. The only reason for this is because you are extremely partisan yourself. If you cared as much you claim to be you would have understood Pierre’s position as Leader of the opposition. After all he don’t belong to a pressure group. He belong to a political party and if he feels some group is trying its best that his party is detached from people’s needs then expect the man to fight back. So much for God being a righteous judge and knowing thought and motives!
