Doctor Tennyson Joseph’s warped advice

By: Oswald Augustin – General Secretary UWP

Dr. Tennyson Joseph a discredited politician by his own grass roots from the arts and crafts, fishing and agricultural village of Choiseul and Saltibus on the western coast of St. Lucia continues to make a mockery of his positon as a lecturer at the Cave Hill Campus. Tennyson Joseph’s obsession with Prime Minister Chastanet stems from the fact that his old boss of the St. Lucia Labour Party was overwhelmingly defeated as St. Lucians clearly rejected the left wing policy advocated by Tennyson Joseph.

Individuals like Joseph continue to dwell in a world of fantasy to their own creating without realising that the world has moved on. I distinctly recall having been briefed by a personal friend who had a one to one meeting with the former Prime Minister of Jamaica Michael Manley some six months before his passing on and Mr. Manley indicated that he created the greatest injustice to Jamaica when he moved the economy to the left.

Manley further indicated in his conversation that his heart was filled with sorrow for disrupting a thriving economy and by extension the lives of thousands of Jamaicans who were forced to relocate to the US and elsewhere. As a gentle reminder it should be recalled that it took JCA$1.10 to buy US$1.00 and today based on the poor political decisions taken then it takes JCA$120.00 to buy US$1.00.

We further need to revisit the Guyana economy which enjoyed a parity rate of GUY$2.40 to US$1.00 prior to the administration of Forbes Burnham. Today, it takes over GUY $200.00 to purchase US$1.00.

It is unfortunate that at today’s stage of our education system that an individual is engaged at one of our most recognized learning institutions like Cave Hill to be fuelling messages which do not resonate in today’s world. What message is being sent to our young minds after a Prime Minister was democratically elected yet Tennyson Joseph publishes an article within the local media indicating that business persons should not be permitted to govern a country.

 Unfortunately, Mr. St. Clair Lecock tried to put some sense in the head of Mr. Joseph, but appeared unsuccessful. Tennyson Joseph has written several articles in the past surrounding the current St. Lucia Prime Minister which have been ignored but hopefully, the board of directors of this learning institution will take note of these disparaging articles which remain meritless and take the necessary and appropriate disciplinary action against a lecturer passing on warped ideas to his students.

      Oswald lost the election he run lost by a few votes, you on the other hand failed to win your deposit. What a shame on you now to refer to a gentleman that you Oswald will never be able to walk in his footsteps as being rejected

    In the advent of persons who persistently feel the need to inject their (unsolicited)ideas and spew propaganda with no regard to how it affects others rational defense is warranted. Y is it OK for one to bash a person and wrong for another to come to the defense of the person?

    Discredited politician, ad failing to win election are NOT the same oswald.

    I am disappointed that you failed to outline what are specifically wrong with Dr Tennyson Joseph’s assertion.

    Next time you respond to such claims, break the argument apart, highlight the issues that are wrong and explain why .
    Your response is a non response really, it as empty as de stuffed barrel.

    Career academics. People who never run anything where people’s lives depended on their success. The stupidity of linking the coincidence that Chastanet is a “businessman” to trump being a “businessman” and running with it like its a good analogy or that it would win these fools an election, even if they know that they will not win an election for another 30 years. Seriously! Populations dont vote people in, they vote them out. Which means that the last administration was voted out. Which means that these labour party fools need to find out why they were voted out in such stunning fashion. Think about it, the most populace parts of St. Lucia voted Flambeau 4 to 1. Gros Islet, Babonneau, Castries north, and central. Your party were voted out in the places where it counts. Go fix your party and its message. You Jackassses were so concentrated on messaging against Chastanet that you forgot that the election was being thought on the ground in constituencies. It wasnt any businessman who made you loose. In governing, chastanet is proving more adept at making justified choices than any of you so called academics ever did. Dude has a plan and a philosophy. You Jackasses never did. You Mr. Joseph are a waterboy. Water carrier.

      Robert Lewis Vaughn please find a mirror to have a close look at yourself. Reason being that if you had any brain on your head you would now be too ashamed to even say you voted flambeau. You clearly sound like the real jackass to be supporting the refuse Oswald empty in his toilet. Some cheap advice please go and educate yourself like Dr. Joseph before you go about with your Allen type statistics.
