Divided loyalties?

As election fever grips Saint Lucia, Phimber Paul could easily be accused of having divided loyalties.

His vehicle, parked at Nicklette Hill, La Clery, flies the colours of both the ruling Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) and the opposition United Workers Party (UWP).

Paul told the Times that he is accustomed to being asked questions about flying the red colour of the SLP and the yellow of the UWP.

He explained:

“I just decided to put it because I have two hands and they have two parties that want to fight for one seat – letting people fight, therefore I put two flags.”

Paul, who seems to be a disillusioned voter, suggested that literal meaning should be given to fighting an election.

“The way I saw it, they supposed to be putting the two persons who want to be prime minister in a ring. Let them fight and the one that win let them run the country,” was his tongue in cheek remark.

Despite sporting the red and yellow colours of both main political parties, Paul made it clear that he was not going to vote for anyone.

“Every time I vote, the person I vote for they always forgetting me that is why,” he explained.
