UWP says Fletcher has lost all credibility

Press Release:-The United Workers Party finds very hypocritical the various positions taken by former Saint Lucia Labour Party Government Minister James Fletcher and other Labor Party Operatives such as Sir Julian R Hunte on the proposed Dolphin Project.

Mr. Fletcher has proven himself to be a fake and a flip flopper of the highest order.

In his recent efforts to mislead the people of Saint Lucia Mr. Fletcher has presented himself as an environmentalist concerned about dolphins, when in fact he was part of the Cabinet of Ministers that approved the project in 2013.

At a Saint Lucia National Trust Meeting held on Saturday March 11th the former Minister for Public Service, Information, Broadcasting, Sustainable Development, Energy, Science and Technology said that when he served in the Kenny Anthony administration that the Dolphin Project was rejected.

We have now learnt that this was untrue and according to Cabinet Conclusion dated 8th July 2013 the then Kenny Anthony Cabinet of which Dr. Fletcher was a member approved the “Swim with the Dolphins” project.

The Dolphin project was further announced by Kenny Anthony is his budget address of 2014.

The United Workers Party believes that the Saint Lucia National Trust has tainted itself by first allowing Saint Lucia Labour Party operatives such as ex Minister Fletcher who are lying to the people, to speak on their behalf and by the Trust NOT stating any objections at the time to the project but is now stating an objection to this new UWP administration shows that the issue has been politicized.

This is not the first issue that Mr. Fletcher has flip flopped on.

He was also in the Kenny Anthony administration when the Citizenship by Investment Programme was approved. Now he has said he is against the CIP programme.

Wasn’t He best placed to voice his concerns about these issues when he had the ear of the then Prime Minister?

How can the Saint Lucia National Trust or the People of Saint Lucia trust anything Mr. Fletcher says?

It seems clear to the UWP that depending on which administration is in power his position is ever ready to change.

The UWP believes that Mr. Fletcher has lost all credibility to speak on this is issue and must publicly apologize to the members of the National Trust Members that he has mislead and the people of Saint Lucia.

    Seriously, is this a release from the UWP? Why do political parties get lost once they get in power. It happened to the SLP, and now the UWP. UWP needs to sober down and decide which battle to fight. Jimmy came out and retracted his statement on the dolphin park. By doing that he gained more respect from the ordinary man. Attacking people will not work for the UWP. They now need to deliver and prove to St Lucians that they made the right choice on June 6th. Get serious guys.

Is this the same guy who tell people about environment and electric cars but owns a BMW gas guzzler and also approved the buying of non electric cars by his gov’t.

Btw are these the same Lucians who eat dolphin regular. choops tan

    Jimmy, were you too afraid that Kenny would have fired you like he did to Kick, Tessa and Mal-cawb?

    Or were you too consumed by the trappings of being a Minister of Government with more portfolios than elected members, and getting a salary who really didn’t need given all you inherited from the well connected positions your father enjoyed in the taxi business for years under the UWP that the ordinary taxi driver had to wait until all your father’s buses were filled before they got a trip.

    Is it a situation, that now you have jumped ship you can’t recall what you supported and what you didn’t support as an SLP Minister?

      But you must agree ras that this a major flip eh……less than three years after granting approval, having it in your budget, you make no publiç statement against Its viability or morality but you suddenly find your voice to sway opinions and stoke a movement against the very same investment you supported………stilll respect him as a knowledgeable dude but must admit that he is part of the political gamesmanship that t is keeping us poor

    U W P When you in government there are things you can do like writing letters, approve projects, debate, negotiate without letting the people that put there know. But when it comes to signing contracts selling us out piece by piece destroying our heritage don’t you think we should have a say in it after all we only have one, 1,youn citizenship we have nowhere else to go.
