Guy Joseph: SLP trying to create unrest

Guy Joseph,  Saint Lucia’s Minister for Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation, has accused the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) of trying to create unrest in the country.

Joseph made the accusation as a church service to mark the first anniversary of the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) victory at the polls got underway today.

“I think this is a special event not just for the United Workers Party but for the people of Saint Lucia,” the minister told reporters as he outlined achievements of the ruling party since taking office.


He recalled that the people of Saint Lucia gave the UWP an overwhelming mandate to run the affairs of state, while the labour party has been making a lot of noise and trying to create unrest.

“I must say that they continue to exhibit the traits of character associated with the labour party – instability, threats to people and all kinds of things,” the Castries South East MP said.

“I mean, this is our country and we should not take kindly to any former government or government minister threatening investors – the labour party is so well known for this,” Guy Joseph declared.

He said previously it was said that the SLP was going to write investors to dissuade them from coming to Saint Lucia.

According to Joseph, currently the SLP is making all kinds of allegations about investors.

“If the opposition has a problem with the government, deal with the government – do not bring in the investors and the people into this,” the minister stated.

“Investors do not bring themselves into a country and give themselves anything, so if there is a problem deal with the government,” Joseph observed.

He expressed the view that the labour party’s intention is to ensure that the current administration does not succeed in delivering to the people of Saint Lucia.

Joseph, responding to assertions that the UWP’s year in office has not been without controversy, including protests over the DSH project, noted that there will always be controversy in government.

“Once UWP is in office and SLP is in opposition you expect that,” he said.

    “I must say that they continue to exhibit the traits of character associated with the labour party – instability, threats to people and all kinds of things,” the Castries South East MP said……Guy Joseph, what exactly are you trying to say? Is that your label for SLP supporters? You should just keep your mouth shut because everything you say equates to garbage.

    As usual, Guy tries to paint himself and the UWP as the saints and the SLP as the devils. The facts speak for themselves. The UWP is destablizing itself because of the selfishness, greed and vindictiveness of Allen Chastanet and Guy Joseph. I don’t have to list all of it because it is plain and for everyone to see. Guy and Allen believe Saint Lucians will remain passive, quiet, docile people and they will never challenge the wrongdoings and dictatorial acts they engage in. They have a thing coming for them, even within their own party!

    As a concern citizen, I think minister Guy Joseph should refrain from making statements. He is really a disgrace to our nation. Please please please take a break Mr. Minister UWP and SLP should be a thing of the past.

    Mama…rowrow even after uwp win. As a STRONG SLP supporter I say leave the ppl alone let them do their business and if it turns out bad then rub it in their face if that satisfies you and if it turns out as expected then congratulate them. Yes am against the dolphin park because I don’t believe in putting gods animals in jail. Its only been a year, so many things won’t be done in four years so wait till next election to try to vote them out but talking and causing drama won’t bring our Kenny back to the seat. And stop generalizing ppl every1 not the same. My certificate is pending with chtti that’s one thing I got out of uwp and mm lost her NICE job..ppl saying her contract ended yes everyone’s own ended so why did the renew sum ppls own ? That’s life can’t hate them 4 that

    The SLP has a right to engage in peaceful protests as often as they desire as St. Lucia is a democratic country. However, the UWP is in office for just about a year, how much do any reasonable person expect them to accomplish in such a short time frame? Let’s be fair-minded! The SLP bankrupted the country and completely lost their way. That’s the main reason they were voted out of office. The vast majority of St. Luciana gave the UWP a five (5) year mandate to try to turn things in a different trajectory. Give the new regime their due time and if they do not perform satisfactorily at the end of their term vote them out. This vociferous and vigorous anti-government campaign by the SLP after just demitting office is a complete charade even though they have the constitutional rights to do so. The new government at the same time must not ride roughshod over the people and should try to be more inclusive. Unity is strength, divisiveness leads to destruction.

    Kindly stop focusing on the political parties and their members. Are they not all the same? Can any of them cast stones ? Are they not in the same societies? Is there accountability as a politician? Are politician immune from justice?.

      What have the Du Boulays done that is wrong? Just so you want to put a decent family in your roro? I wonder if your parents ever worked in the ice factory and the other businesses owned by the Du Boulays? When you run the Du Boulays out of St. Lucia will you include their children who are lawyers and who were born just a few years ago? By the way, what have the Chastanets done wrong? And what do you have against capitalists? All of a sudden, I feel like a perfect jackass to take you on with your silly comments.

    The Dubulays and chastanets has provided legitimate jobs for the people of this country and has help meany people of this country. Even find the campaign of some of the members of the SLP. Their parents have been in this country before we were brought as slaves in this country. We have right now equal opportunity to make something of ourself. We have meany rich black people in this country which will spend a cent to help with the development of this country. But all they do is cretisise the government

      If you do your homework right you will know exactly who’s to blame and who should be in jail take the wax off your eyes you will see and the wax off your ears and you will hear. People like you are the reason we are in this situation today because you have no common sense just keep on repeating rubbish all the time.
