Kenny Anthony wants new crime category

Kenny Anthony wants new crime category

Former Saint Lucia Prime Minister, Doctor Kenny Anthony, has called for the creation of a new category of crime in Saint Lucia.

“I believe now that we should have a special category of crime in politics – we should call it political fraud,” Anthony told a meeting last night of the opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) on the Castries market steps.

He asserted that when a political party misleads the electorate, they should be charged with political fraud.

The former SLP leader made the comments while asserting that the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) has misled the people of Saint Lucia who fell for the party’s promises.

“That is why I have no hesitation in saying to you loud and clear that this is a government that has committed political fraud on the people of Saint Lucia,” Anthony declared.

While calling attention to a number of initiatives that have been scrapped by the administration of Prime Minister, Allen Chastanet, Anthony told his audience that Chastanet, in his private occupations, was a dismal failure.

“Even Butch Stewart who even today uses him for his own purposes, decided to rid himself of Allen Chastanet,” the former PM said.

He referred to the economy about which the SLP has been warning the government.

“There is something that is happening with your reputation as a country and I am the first to tell you that some of those problems had to do with the very difficult years that we were in office, when there is one satisfaction I will get when I finally make my departure – it is dear to me,” the former Prime Minister stated.

“I want to go down as a Prime Minister who never took Saint Lucia to the IMF,” Anthony declared.

He noted that Saint Lucians were promised that Value Added Tax (VAT) would be reduced and removed.

“They bring down VAT for you by 2.5 percent – why is it if they bring down VAT for you by 2.5 percent, the price of things in the supermarket has gone up? ” Anthony said.

He asserted that the ordinary people were not benefitting from the reduction in VAT.

    If there were to be a “new” category for political crimes, Kennedy Anthony would be facing a life sentence…

      Oh please …Seriously! Allen has potentially done more damage in a year than Kenny did in 15 years…… History will reveal that and NO I am not a supporter of either party. I just try to separate fact ! (Words deleted)

          why don’t you shut up. Unemployed or not they will commit crime. some of those young people just lazy and don’t want to work. How comes the foreigners get jobs and the locals can’t get? some of those young men and women just want an easy way out and want quick money. why don’t they go rob chastnet and the politicians who as they say messing up the country and instead rob the poor man who is struggling to make ends meet. when they start to rob the politicians and their family then something will be done about crime.

      Political crime? Has kenny Anthony forgotten about the Greenberg affair amoung others?Has he forgotten about his promise in 2011 at a political rally to create 100,000 jobs within the first 100 days in office? . I like positive opposition but not when someone like the labour party is skillfully and willfully lying and spreading propaganda to destabilize the government.

    Dr. Kenny Anthony since you are my Prime Minister, I would like you to say nothing on the crime situation. Let the Prime Minister of the UWP deal with the situation. He clearly politicised crime and stated that you cannot deal with crime but he can. He said he will make St. Lucia safer. He cried on stage all day about how God gave him a vision to solve crime. It’s all recoded. There is video to prove it.
    Best wishes to you my Prime Minister, Dr. Kenny Anthony.
    Blessings.

        Ask Kenny what the 3 million dollar (tax payers money) investigation of Guy Joseph discovered. Nothing. Kenny and the SLP love people like you and wish that the whole of St Lucia was like you. Fortunately it does not have as many ignorant people. You are like an echo

          You have no shame just like your leader, Allen Chastanet.
          Why do you see the need to s fend a group of thugs who do not care about your or anyone but themselves. It’s not like the UWPs are hiding to do the criminal acts. We all see it. So what is there for you to defend?

    On the issue of political fraud, I do support you Sir. Anthony. And we know majority of the UWP administration would be occupying a large wing of the prison. They amass millions of dollars and tief it in plain view of the public, while the poor people can’t eat or afford laptops for their children.
    What a heartless and dirty administration. But again, this is what the people wanted and m votes for.
    I love what Chastanet and Guy Joseph s doing to them.

    Kenny and Chasnet we are not talking about politics. Talk about the real crime in St Lucia. The killings prostitution drugs etc. We know for ages now you politicians should be in jail for all the crime ALL of you are doing. If it was in the metropolitan country all of you would get life sentences

    things are hard very hard ..i just cant feel the impact of vat reduction. i get less for the same amount of money i used to spend with 15% vat ..never had i ever have to leave groceries on the counter because i could not pay. its the same things i used to buy. the same items cost more. so i ask what is the perpose of vat reduction.

Was it that same kenny who promise the electorate jobs, jobs, jobs and on top of this he said a million dollars into the economy as soon as they enter into office? So what this dictator is talking about well it could have been Anthony talking at the time.smh shameless guy.

    I have no political affiliations for I view politics as a game of deception to get into office. For Kenny Anthony to lip such ridiculous nonsense in times of unprecedented bloodletting reflects poorly on himself. In these serious times , for him to interject petty party politics to further divide an already overly politicized nation, is ultra selfish. He is part of the problem and a complete stranger to the solution. Chastanet does not escape scrutiny, he should get a failing grade on the lack of leadership on national security. Let’s not play political football with crime, it does nobody any good. Bullets have no eyes, don’t discriminate, so it’s imperative that we use our collective brain power to devise practical solutions to eradicate this scourge. We are better together.

    No political parties in SLU care about we citizens. Both SLP and UWP are the same
    None of the minister don’t care how we survive… All the ministers bread are buttered on both side. They all are for themselves
    We help and support them to eat our money

    Political fraud.
    you would be the first to go down if I understand what you said well correct me if am wrong. it is my understanding that you made the assertion that politicians who make promises and don’t keep them should be charged with political fraud . lets go down memory lane see if you kept your promises
    4 lane highway to vfort
    bowling alley
    civic center
    100,000 jobs for St.lucians
    100 millions injected into the economy
    unite all St.lucians
    none of these exist presently
    isn’t that enough to be charged with the new type of crime you are suggesting

    Will the Real Kenny Anthony Please Stand Up!
    It really was just a matter of time wasn’t it?
    And now we are starting to see that Phillip ‘Puppet’ Pierre was really just that all along, a temporary stand in as Opposition Leader for when Kenny, an gwo ipokwit, ready to boot the man out.
    Imagine, Kenny Anthony wants to accuse others of incompetence when he almost run us into the sea and now calling for a new criminal category. You will be the first to be charged with fraud Kenny, be careful what you wish for.
    And in his usual style, bad mouthing investors and the Prime Minister. How you know Allen was fired by Butch Stewart Kenny? But wait, wasn’t it you who was hugging up Butch a few years ago? ‘An kouto de lanm’ Kenny. That is you! Kenny Two-Face. Don’t worry; we have a Batman to deal with you too!
    Why don’t you tell us about how you set up poor Phillip Pierre. Pip boy, look behind you. You feel Kenny have any care for you? I kay bo’w menm kon Jida te bo Jezi!
    But after the licks he got in the last election Kenny will try anything now. Prepare for the dirty works to come. He will make sure he tries to derail all the work government is trying to do.
    An nonm ki an twaka Kenny. A desperate man will do anything to hold to, and that is why you must be careful of people like that Saint Lucia. The man has vengeance on his mind, and we will all bleed if we not careful.
