Former talk show host ‘EG’ Lynch’s eyesight ‘diminishing’

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent – Former host of the New Democratic Party’s “New Times” radio programme, Eduardo “E.G.” Lynch returned to the show yesterday to ask listeners to donate money to help him seek medical attention as his vision diminishes.

“I am here this morning on a special mission, one that I hope u will support and give credit to,” said Lynch in his first appearance on the daily programme in months.

Lynch told listeners to the programme that he hosted for 11 years that he has to travel overseas for medical attention “in order to help me regain my sight”.

“As you know, I am not totally blind, I still can see, I still can walk. But at this time, it seems as if the sight is getting worse day by day. And, at this time, it is very important that I go to a country somewhere — either the United States, England or Canada — to get whatever help I can in order to regain that sight or at least put a halt to the deterioration of the sight,” he said.

“With me nowadays, I cannot read small letter, or what we call ordinary letters. It has to be of a certain size,” he explained.

“I hope you will be able to do what I am asking you to do because I could remember that I personally aided a lot of persons,” he said in reference to the bank account information of persons in need that he announced while he hosted the programme.

“We use to announce it on the programme daily and, in that manner, we were able to aid persons suffering from all sorts of illnesses,” Lynch said.

“I know that a lot of you probably appreciate the voice again. The old man is still talking, still full of vigour but I guess the reason why I am not on the programme is because I cannot read; I cannot see properly.

“Ladies and gentlemen, it was a pleasure to serve you. I wish that pleasure would continue. And if it does, I will be able to serve you just as before. … I try everyday to live a normal life. If I go down town, I ride the vans; people give me rides when they see me stand up at the roadside. So I try my best to be what I am supposed to be,” Lynch said.

Persons wishing to donate to Lynch can do so by making a deposit in account number 5059179 at the Bank of Nova Scotia in Kingstown.

  5. Let us not make fun of illness, it can happen to anyone of us.

    EG. I will be in SVG in about 2 weeks, my husband and I will make our donation to you in person.

    I do hope that you will receive all the donation you need to leave soon. Your illness is not one to play around with.

    I know that the Prime Minister has a kind heart in spite of his hard shell. I am sure he will make a personal donation to you EG. You served the party well and did it your way. Keep the faith and pray with all your heart that God will shower you with his blessings.

  6. ULP people don’t have hearts. I am sorry for all of you who try to copy Master Rapist, and try to be heartless just like him. E.G. is a good man, and we must all try to help him.

  7. Regardless to what party he represents,that does not mean ,that we should stand and watch,an illness befall him…every one has a right to chose a party and represent their p…but that does not mean we should make him suffer if we can help! !

  8. Sutton and Ramjeet,

  9. What wonderful ambassadors you all are for the ULP, what a great help you all are to the Gonsalves cause.

    What further truth do the people need to realise that John, VincyPowa, Jason and FUDZ, and all the other Marxist scum are just that, scum.

    THOSE OF YOU IN THE DIASPORA, IS THIS THE CLASS OF PERSON THAT YOU SUPPORT, THE DREGS OF CARIBBEAN MARXIST’S.

    WAKE UP AND SMELL THE SULPHUR

  10. It is AMAZING how NO ONE has ACTUALLY SEEN the TRAGEDY in all this. Here you have a MAN who has been the SPOKESPERSON for the NDP for over 10 years yet he has to BASICALLY BEG for FINANCIAL DONATIONS for his EYE SURGERY.

    Mr. Lynch was like the DEFACTO VOICE of the NDP for a decade and KEPT that PARTY RELEVANT during those DARK DAYS. Now he supposedly has ISSUES with his EYES and the NDP has HARDLY LIFT a HAND to TAKE care of this man’s MEDICAL FINANCIAL NEEDS.

    I heard ERNESTO CROOKE is now DRIVING the VEHICLE that LYNCH used to DRIVE and the GROCERIES that he used to get from one of the SUPERMARKET FINANCIERS of the NDP has been DISCONTINUED.

    I can add more, but I will end with this.

    If this is how the NDP is treating the MAN who has been the VOICE and BACKBONE of that party for over a DECADE on the AIRWAVES, can you IMAGINE what it will be LIKE with them GOVERNING this COUNTRY.

    SAD, SAD, SAD.

  11. I am alarmed at how cynical and uncaring our nation has become.what has caused this?. Are those persons with good eye sight spiritually blind. WHO HAS EYES TO SEE LET THEM SEE!

    Posted by Kayrab | February 22, 2012, 20:54
  12. Where else have I met people so heartless as some who have commented here?

    Well, nowhere.Never in my experience.

    Posted by DWells | February 22, 2012, 23:31
  13. KAYRAB, it is because we have EYES to see why I am DUMBFOUNDED by the lack of decisive action by Eustace and the NDP to help Mr. Lynch.

    Mr. Lynch should NEVER EVER have to come to the PUBLIC to ask for FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE.

    Again, Mr. Lynch was the VOICE, the MOUTHPIECE, of the NDP for over a DECADE and for him to be PRACTICALLY BEGGING for DONATIONS to HELP PAY for his EYE SURGERY, what does that TELL U about Arnhim Eustace and the NDP?

    Do I have to SPELL it for EVERYONE?

    Is this the LEADER and the PARTY that some of you want to GOVERN this NATION?

    I hate to say it, but those who support Eustace and the NDP to GOVERN this NATION have to be TOTALLY OUT of their MINDS.

    Frankly, there has to be SERIOUS PROBLEMS within the NDP for this MATTER about Mr. Lynch “BEGGING” for financial assistance to pay for his upcoming eye surgery.

    I have been saying this for over two years and I will continue to say it again. Mr. Eustace and the NDP are not FIT to MANAGE a MAUBY SHOP much less govern a country, especially in these times. And from this obvious FIASCO with EG LYNCH, it should be clear to the MOST CHALLENGED among us that this is the case.

    Posted by vincypowa | February 23, 2012, 00:45
    • But yet you can’t pay town board workers, you can’t pay the people who conducted the census since last August, the irrigation department waited 5 weeks over the december/january period for one lousy payment.

      talk about mauby shop???? the name on the shop says ulp.

  14. VincyPowa its no good now trying to put the blame on others for comments you and other Marxist idiots made. The damage you have all done to the ULP cause is ireversable. You have all shown your true worth to the Vincentian society, ZILCH.

    You are what you are and always will be just that ‘Marxist Scum’

    Posted by Peter | February 23, 2012, 07:39
  15. The NDP has the Greaves, Bonadies and Vieries along with a lot lf rich backers. Cant they give EG Lynch the cash he needs to do the surgery? Why does Mr Lynch , the mouth-piece of the NDP have to go on radio begging for money to sdo such an important surgery. I hope he gets the assistance he needs. I wont wish the lost of sight on anyone.

    Posted by Arthur | February 23, 2012, 07:47
  16. Arthur, who says they won’t, all the guessing that they won’t and the inference by that Marxist scum bag VincyPowa that NDP or Eustace won’t if they can, is just scurrilous Marxist crap. An attempt to gain points from a tragedy.

    I repeat

    “VincyPowa its no good now trying to put the blame on others for comments you and other Marxist idiots made. The damage you have all done to the ULP cause is ireversable. You have all shown your true worth to the Vincentian society, ZILCH.”

    You are what you are, and always will be just that, ‘Marxist Scum’.

    What I am waiting to see, is if the Gonsalves lawyers garnishee the Lynch accounts that he has listed in the media, and then grabbing the money, from a blind man as they say.

    I am sure that all you Marxist’s would be in full support of that action, eh.

    A real hero is is Duggy DeFreitus of Nice Radio, he gave Lynch time on the station to appeal, when he himself needs money to save his business and family. Thank you Duggie for being such a good Christian, a true son and patriot of SVG.

    ‘Such sweet sorrow’

    YOU IN THE DIASPORA TAKE NOTE AT THE EVIL THAT THE ULP HAS BRED INTO VINCENTIAN SOCIETY

    WAKE UP AN SMELL THE SULPHUR

  17. With all the Christians being slaughtered by countries who we scrounge from, what else can we expect from the SVG Marxist scum brigade.

    Posted by Peter | February 23, 2012, 10:25
  18. No Arthur, they are probably saving their pennies, because those are the companies that king Ralph vowed to close down, and you supported that. Sometimes when i looked back at some of these foolish statements that ralph made and the support it got from his followers, i just have to shake my head. No one bothered to ask the man where was he going to find jobs for the thousands of vincies that these companies employ. In fact, in can bet any dollar, that some of the people who clapped when that statement was made, actually works at one of the establishments. But just like the people in North Korea had to cry when their dear leader died of face the wrath of the government, these people had to clap. There is no way that everyone working at these companies voted for the NDP. But such is the stupidity of Ralph and his followers.

    EG Lynch will be fine,

    The country is moving into the 5th year of negative growth…

  19. Keep up the good work all you ULP nasties, you really are helping the ULP cause in the negative.

  20. shame!!!!!! shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. You all should be ashamed of yourselves taking this as a big joke…come on people this is someone’s health…i wouldnt be surprised to see one of you or a family member of yours in Lynch’s position..shame shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. PETER, what EXACTLY are you TALKING about?

    That said; I want to know why we should be SYMPATHETIC to EG LYNCH.

    Posted by vincypowa | February 23, 2012, 16:56
  23. Why non of you sympatisers of EG not commenting on the cheaper option of him going to cuba? Instead of mention ULP this and ULP that. Is it becuase it would be under a ULP program? Lynch is accustomed to being helped out by ULP. When d DPP discontinued the case against him involving Silver fox and que pasa he was so happy he cry long water out he eye. Another marxist practice right Peter?

    Posted by John | February 23, 2012, 20:55
  24. well Vincypowa I am not a fan of EG Lynch but he is still a human being so for that I feel sympathy towards him. It must be a very scary thing to know you might lose your sight. I wont want that for him or for you. I just felt badly for him that he had to be on radio begging for money for the surgery. I would think that someone like him would have gotten support and not have to humiliate himself by begging…ah well I hope his party helps him out

    Posted by Arthur | February 23, 2012, 21:32
  25. VincyPowa, just keep on digging a deeper hole for yourself, it is obvious that you are a sub human species. I was right in my assesment, your a Marxist scum colaborator and an extremly nasty wicked turd.

    Arthur shut up your just making yourself look like a stupid no brain idiot.

    Posted by Peter | February 24, 2012, 06:22
  26. You cannot go on a partisan medium to make a national appeal! This eye problem did not start overnight, maybe an opportunity was missed because one’s stubbornness to participate in “Vision Now”? Instead of asking people to sic their dogs on the Cubans and to chase them he and his party should have embraced the program. How silly! It shows God does NOT sleep.

    Posted by Chrys | February 24, 2012, 07:30
  27. @ Peter, guy you know I feel absolute pity for you. You are filled with so much hater for Ralph Gonsalves . You will attack and curse anyone who does not show hatred for Ralph Gonsalves. All you are interested in is that the whole world attact Mr. Gonsalves. How do you survive from day to day just hating someone so much?…You need to be careful , this kind of contempt and hatred you have for Mr Gonsalves and anyone who remotely support him will one day affect your health. Thanks for pointing out that I look stupid and am a no brain idiot…I will work on those negative qualities and try to become and wise as you….

  28. WHY CAN,T WE BEHAVE LIKE HUMAN ANYMORE , WE BEHAVING LIKE CAVE PEOPLE FROM THE COUNTRY OF BACKWARDNESS.

  29. This is not a politcal issue, here is a man in need of dire medical help. Why do we have to add all the politcal garbage to this issue?

    Posted by Mourine Ramjeet | February 25, 2012, 12:39
  30. MOURINE, when the same EG LYNCH TOLD POOR PEOPLE not to ACCEPT HELP from CUBAN DOCTORS during the VISION CARE drive for SIMILAR PROBLEMS that he is now SUFFERING from, it wasn’t a POLITICAL issue then, so where was the OUTCRY from you and all the others who are now advocating on behalf him?

    HUNDREDS of POOR VINCENTIANS MISSED OUT on much NEEDED MEDICAL CARE for their VISION/EYESIGHT, because of the SCAREMONGERING RHETORIC of Mr. LYNCH over the AIRWAVES, but somehow we shell out monies to help the very man who DENIED many in the SOCIETY to receive the same care?

    In case we have forgotten, Mr. Lynch is the person who INFLUENCED HUNDREDS of POOR VINCENTIANS from ATTAINING MEDICAL HELP all because of POLITICS.

    Let Mr. Lynch go to Cuba and get his EYES CHECKED OUT.

    I am HARPING on this ISSUE to EXPOSE the HYPOCRISY of PEOPLE who STOOD SILENT when Mr. Lynch was SPEWING his LIES and SCAREMONGERING on the AIRWAVES at the DETRIMENT of the same POOR PEOPLE that NEEDED MEDICAL HELP for their eyesight and other PHYSICAL DISABILITIES.

    Posted by vincypowa | February 25, 2012, 19:40
  31. What all this proves is that all these nasty Unity Liar Party that are posting here, listen to NiceRadio.

    Gonsalves time to punish this batch of Vincy dunce, they have been very naughty.
