Sarah speaks on the Ubaldus Raymond scandal

Sarah Flood-Beaubrun, the Minister with responsibility for External Affairs, has told reporters that Doctor Ubaldus Raymond and the cabinet of ministers know exactly how she feels about the social media scandal involving Raymond.

Asked about the issue, the MP for Castries Central said:

“I would like to say a very simple thing on this and I hope you will respect or accept what I say. The minister and the cabinet of ministers know exactly how I feel about this issue and I am going to leave it at that.

Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Doctor Ubaldus Raymond, has been at the centre of a firestorm over nude photos, allegedly of the minister and a WhatsApp conversation purporting to be between the minister and a teenage female that have been making the rounds on social media.

In a dramatic twist to the story, an eighteen year old student of Sir Arthur Lewis Community College was arrested and charged with blackmailing Raymond, who issued a statement declaring among other things, that he will not be bullied.

      I read your comment, and I somehow have made sense of what you have said. You are an intelligent person, please write properly and speak proper sense. Stop trying to add insult to the less intellect. Their battles are difficult enough!

    Sarah is being very diplomatic and cautious. No need to rock the boat in public before it brings back sore memories of her battle with SLP over abortion.

    If you can’t say something good about somebody just shut up. You right Mrs Beaudrun. Alot of people here and on social media should do the same instead of bashing the Minister.

    Sarah, you and I both know that the man must go. Like Anthony Weiner, he was thinking with his little head and the PM can only protect him so long.

    Os she has responsibility to Raymond and cabinet but not to the people who she serves? Saint Lucia’s lackadaisical attitude to our government, governance and our civic duty is what allows such issues to fester. Ms. Flood-Beaubrun, let the people who you serve know how you are serving them. Are you standing for truth and responsible conduct of public officials, or are you just checking for your bread?

    Though what Sarah saw on social media about her colleague may be evil, she will speak no evil of him at least not in public!

    A politician first instinct is self-preservation. Minister Flood Beaubrun seems to be mortally afraid to speak truth to power. She probably doesn’t want to incur the wrath of the PM who for some inexplicable reason prefers to tarnish the entire government than to terminate Dr. Raymond’s appointment. How can the other members of government sit with this depraved creature amongst them. Don’t they have a conscience? All the Ministers of Government who have conveniently chosen to be silent on this matter are contributing to the moral decay of the country. What sort of message are we sending to the young with their impressionable minds? As a Minister of Government, you can do the most immoral and reprehensible act with impunity. Unconscionable!

    Sarah before you speak return the person husband you stole & repay the man who paid your lawschool for you. You used him, then issued a restraining order as payment for his good works. You like to stick your nose up like your poop eh smelling too eh miss holier than thou par vwayay wash ou par plee bon. You cannot have selective morality friend.

    Umm. I have my opinions about this. But you know what. At this stage it does not matter. We just have to let that courts deal with the matter. And for the foolish persons giving the lady stress, has it ever occurred to you that it is possible that she is not speaking about the case or expressing her personal opinion to the publice because of the position that she holds or other factors? As previously mentioned, when you have nothing good to say, say nothing. There is a Tim to speak and a time to shut up. Now is the time to shut up
