Josie says: Make an example of corrupt ‘Big Boys’

Peter Josie, former leader of the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP), has said that priority must be given to curing and correcting corruption in Saint Lucia.

Josie made the remarks in an interview with the Times, while voicing support for the Desert Star Holdings (DSH) project in Vieux Fort.

He asserted that corrupt practices that preceded the project must be dealt with.

Josie declared that the situation in Vieux Fort is now more backward than when he was a child.

“Even though this project were to succeed and people continue to behave the same – technical people, government people and opposition people, we will still be spinning top in mud,” the politician told the Times.

He stated that if laws have to be amended in order to deal with corruption that should be done.

“The people can’t use their knowledge of the law to do what they want, mamaguy the people, sign all kinds of contracts days before elections and then nothing happens,” Josie asserted.

He said:

“So the little criminal at the bottom of the ladder when he sees that the big guys are getting through – they don’t have to pay, nothing happens to them; what do you expect him to do?’

Josie said as far as he is concerned, a lesson must be made with the ‘big man’ first.

“Somebody must go to prison- some ‘big boy’ and unless that happens Saint Lucia will never change,” he declared.

    Yes Jojo. You support giving the chinese DSH that level of control but you have a problem with giving small contractors and struggling St Lucian’s a means to feed themselves.

    Where was Little Peter when all this was happening on SLP’s watch?

    What hypocrisy.

    Peter, simply stated, you are “yesterday’s man”.

    You had your chance and you lost it. Too bad, so sad, suck it up buttercup.

    Perhaps consider taking your large bourge’ government pension and enjoy your retirement, open a new ball and fire one for the old days of glory.

    Our island, our people, our children, our future deserves more. And it’s not you.

    All he’s saying is there should be less corruption. He hasn’t said which party or necessarily called out anyone. Are all the previous comments trying to stay that they don’t stand against corruption?? Or are they just all looking for a reason to complain and be unhappy

      Peter Josie has been bouncing in our island’s public and political arena since at least the late 1970’s.

      40 years and he now has an epiphany? What a sham.

      It’s easy enough to recognize when a playa is trying to shine on Looshans that are wiser than that.

    What about all the corruption after the 1979 and 1980 hurricanes involving the Hess funds and the amount of false boat loss claims. Put on your thinking cap

    Josie? Of all People? Is Josie also trying to ride on the coat-Tails of Mas-sa at the detriment of a people? Josie is the same vile, inept and confused shoe-shinning licking feral mo-.nkey as he was (contributing nothing) to the society other than occupying space on this Island’s unreadable and ‘un-wanted newspapers.’ See, this is what happens when Black males do not understand what is at stake, but because it’s a white male at the helm, that his fe.ces and fa.rt are gold for those ho.use-sla.ves. I have read what is at stake in this shame of a DSH deal and all the cards are against us. St. Lucian Men need to be also aware that our women (the Black women) will take away from you and handed over to the Chinese male to satisfy their natural urges. Are you going to allow all of this and more to hit you in the face without standing up? Is that why you all voted for Ma-ssa?

    This same DSH tried this same crap in other countries and were all booted out. So why in the name of this Great Land of Ours, have YOU, Saint Lucians, allowed a white boy you elected, to do you like this. Giving the Chinese all of your 700 acre lands for free @$1.00 per acre for 99 years. Giving them 40,000 passports by only buying a thoroughbred. And they (the Chinese,) have the option of pulling out in 24 months, should the investors they needed not materialized, with us having to buy all 700 acres of land (our own land) back from them. Chastenate the boy, would never allow this to be done to his father’s property. But he did it to you, BLACK PEOPLE. Because he or IT knows, he only has to be wh.ite to have you looking up to him and take all his col.o-nial wh..ipping without you even flit.ching
    What an En-s.laved mind you have, Saint. Lucians.
    When will you learn, Black People!

    Do people understand what the man is saying or you all just stupid.when jalousie was open people cry like criticizing the project saying that they will take the piton away now we are talking the same foolishness. St lucians have to talk air their views but be smart also. The prime minister would not sign something if in the interest of St lucians. The land right there it’s not going anywhere, let the project go on and stop being backwards.

      You posted this same cr.ap on Stlucianewsonline.com. You have NO clue how this will affect the generations to come. You have NO clue that St. Lucians will have NO access to the lands for a whole century. That is a whole generation of people lost at the hands of your Ma..ss.a. We can all see right through you and understand that you have gained since he took office. And hence you are here doing damage control. How about the fact that he has messed up the CIP to where 40,000 Chinese will have our passports to come and go in our island. Either you clearly have NO clue what is going on or is on you European leader’s Lap every-night doing (God knows what.)

    Thing is, the release of this sham of a deal has now landed this island in deep trouble, since the boy who was elected signed a deal that was promised by him, because the CHINESE funded his campaign. And St. Lucians who hate to put their shoulders to the wheel supported. But now the Chinese have required of him their 3 pounds of flesh. SMH. So he have given them free reign, even to procreate with Black Saint Lucian women to bring forth a new race of people here. But also the ability to do anything possible and if they want, just pull out, and still have this island pay them in millions or billions. This is how stupid this boy is. I VOTED LABOUR. Because we are Superior!

      Thanks to democracy we all have the opportunity to constructively express our views, which will not always be in alignment.
      Unfortunately, you have exposed yourself as the deplorable self that you truly are by bringing in the PM’s family into it.

        You are the reason why he will be out! We will take a=our country back, son! And i know the reality will eat you up from inside out. Have you noticed how the ‘Judging” of post on Stlucianewsonline.com is now sliding from him? Take Notice, son. The same people who Voted for him are waking up to his lies and deceit. The Great Dr. Kenny Anthony had warned this Nation. But SLU sold their souls because they didn’t ant to pay taxes to build our country. Soon, they will also realize that they can’t afford anything at the supermarkets due to all the ‘Zero Rated’ items have now acquired VAT.
        But again, you will be presenting your plate at Micheal Chastanet crappy hotel to eat. So you aiiite 🙂 House Negro Sla.ve!

        There’a no doubt, Sad-And-Vapid, that the former PM was, and still is a nice human being, a genial and very intelligent person. However, he was not particularly distinguishable as a great leader. and he suffered from having a Cabinet that would not take the tough decisions necessary to effect change.

        Will the new PM and his Ministry be different? Who knows. What is certain is that deeds speak, and that things can’t be immediately turned around overnight. It will take time and will benefit from all Looshans engaging in a constructive manner on effecting the changes necessary for helping position our society and our economy as a model for the OECS.

        Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for the nay-sayers to crawl out from underneath the rocks they live and offer nothing positive to the ever-evolving, organic policy discussion in our democracy.

    Do you actually believe that Chasyanet’s boys and girls in his Cabinet is all ok with the madness and ne0-colonial way of doing things here? I bet at nights, they are secretly shaking their heads. But the sad reality is that, bills have to be paid, more prostitutes have to be bed and so forth. So therefore, they sit and say nothing, at the detriment of a people and nation. Dr Kenny Anthony was way superior in his thinking. He came out and addressed the Nation of the reason for his implementation of VAT. And he said, if he has to suffer the loss of this election, then so be it. Saint Lucians are NOT a TAX Paying Nation. Therefore, it was easy for the white boy to come in and say the opposite to get elected. So said, so was done. But the hash reality of getting monies to pay a high civil service wage bill, building and maintaining infrastructure, paying 17 ministers high salaries and so forth have to be met. Trust me when i say, it doesn’t take much for anyone to see what a mess this island is in. And thanks to your white saviour!
