Gonsalves to lead ULP in 2015 polls

Vincentian Prime Minister, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, gestures as he makes a point while addressing compatriots in Taiwan, Saturday. Gonsalves plans to lead his Unity Labour Party when it bids for a fourth straight term in office during the next election, constitutionally due in 2015.

TAIPEI, Taiwan – St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves has a word of advise for his New York-based diplomat son, Camillo Gonsalves, who some believe will succeed him as leader of the ruling Unity Labour Party (ULP): “you have to come home and be there on the ground”.

The 66-year-old Gonsalves made the point Saturday as he told Vincentians here he would lead the ULP into the next general election, constitutionally due in 2015.

“There’s no vacancy in the ULP whether in terms of its leadership or prime ministership,” he said in response to a question about leadership transition within the ULP.

“Now I am not going to live forever. And the truth is this, you have a run of three consecutive five-year term, it is not a bad run,” said Gonsalves who has been prime minister since 2001 and was ill in Barbados for two weeks last month, including a weekend in hospital

He said he had indicated to the ULP that he did want to contest another elections as leader and had spoken about this several times since the party won a third consecutive term in December 2010.

But, according to Gonsalves, the decision to run again was made for him in January or February when he was half-hour late for a meeting of the central executive committee of the ULP.

Gonsalves recounted a conversation ULP Chiar Edwin Snagg had with him when he arrived for the meeting:

“The members have been noting that over the past year you have been talking a lot of foolishness about not leading the party in 2015. And we discussed this question here and the unanimous view of the Central Executive is that you must stop talking that foolishness and that we would wish you to lead us into the election in 2015,” Gonsalves said in recounting Snagg’s comments.

“God’s willing, I shall do so (lead the ULP into the 2015 election). So that is really the position,” he said Saturday.

He however said that the ULP — formed in 1994 from a merger of the Labour Party and Gonsalves’ Movement for National Unity — has leadership options.

He mentioned Cecil “Ces” McKie, who contested and won elections for the first time in 2010. Gonsalves said that McKie, who is Tourism Minister, “is doing excellent”.

In the mix are also Agriculture Minister Saboto Caesar, Culture Minister Frederick Stephenson, and Senators Elvis Charles and David Browne — who both tasted defeat in 2010.

“We have a lot of young people who are coming along,” Gonsalves said, adding that La Celia Prince, the Vincentians envoy to Washington, “is more a public servant”.

As it relates to his son Camillo, who is the Vincentians envoy to the United Nations, Gonsalves said: “I don’t know whether he is interested in active politics.

“I am told that he may be interested but the point about it is this: you have to come home and be there on the ground. He is doing excellent work and everybody has acknowledged that at the Untied Nations. So that there are possible successors.”

Concerns about the NDP

Gonsalves, however, said that Vincentians should be concerned about what is happening in the opposition New Democratic Party (NDP), headed by Arnhim Eustace, who has led the party to three consecutive defeats.

“Arnhim Eustace is two years older than me and he acts much older than two years,” Gonsalves said.

“And as you see from the recent contretemps inside of the party, they are looking backwards. They are seeking to solve a question which I think was resolved since the 16th century while I am looking to the future.”

He was referring to the formulation of a policy on religion that led to the revocation of Anesia Baptiste’s senatorial appointment.

“Who they have inside there?” Gonsalves said, adding that NDP chair Dr. Linton Lewis has lost in the St. Georges three times and was passed over to be a senator six times.

He further said that former Member of Parliament Allan Cruickshank was considered as better than West Kingstown representative Daniel Cummings as general-secretary of the NDP.

“Well, if Allan Cruickshank is better than you as general-secretary, that itself tells you a story,” he said, adding that Cummings also lost when he ran against Lewis for chair of the NDP last year.

“I don’t think anybody looks seriously on [Central Kingstown representative] St. Clair Leacock and [Northern Grenadines representative Dr. Godwin] Friday as possible leaders, for all sorts of reasons,” Gonsalves said.

Leacock and Friday are vice-presidents of the NDP.

Gonsalves further said that while the NDP “decided to bring two young people”, Sen. Vynnette Frederick, who “tasted defeat” in West St. George, “has run for cover. She says she ain’t going back there”. Frederick lost to the ULP’s McKie in the 2010 vote.

Frederick, Gonsalves noted, lost her bid to remain public relations officer of the NDP to Ernesto Cooke, “who was in the party two weeks after having said that he was interested in the last election in running for the ULP.

“And we see what has just happened to Anesia [Baptiste],” he said in reference to the revocation of her senatorial appointment.

“And just remember one thing: I won the last three elections. Eustace lost them. These are not inventions of mine,” Gonsalves further said.

  1. Donkey Gonsalves that is a pretty stupid statement. “I don’t know whether he is interested in active politics“. Gonsalves don’t talk such stupid rubbish , of course you know.
    “I am told that he may be interested but the point about it is this: you have to come home and be there on the ground“.
    Donkey Gonsalves what do you mean “come home” his home and place of birth is the US, not SVG.
    “He is doing excellent work and everybody has acknowledged that at the Untied Nations. So that there are possible successors.”
    Donkey Gonsalves, we hope he is doing excellent work, he is being paid a cart load of money to do just that.
    The seemingly unimportant phrase by Donkey “So that there are possible successors.” means more than you all think.

    You all should note that Gonsalves slipped his son into the discussion, then cloaked the whole thing in attacking NDP. The real message was his son, who is going to run at next election, and is coming to live in SVG soon. The continuation of the Gonsalves dynasty.

    We must not forget the boy slipped up and wrecked our diplomacy record when he very stupidly refused to identify himself and was arrested in New York. Like his father he is a semi intelligent idiot.
    Then assisted by his father Donkey Gonsalves tried to blame the police officer.

    Its a shame there is not a criminal act known as ‘conspiracy to change the course of history’.

  6. Has R. Gonsalves forgotten that he was in the political wilderness for umpteenth years? Has he forgotten how he became leader of the ULP? I am in disbelief that he is implying that if you have tasted defeat you are not worthy to lead. He is so self serving. Others in his book are simply not capable. The folly of this beast.

  7. It is interesting that he has now realised that he is not going to live forever. Why? Is it because he is now experiencing the fact that you can keep the thing down for so long?

  11. Ralph is correct. The NDP needs to get to work and rebuild a united party with competent candidates. The question is who can and will replace Arnhim. The baggages that most NDP contenders have are enough ammunition for Ralph and his puppets.
    However the NDP should set its own agenda and concentrate on a united party. Don’t follow Ralph old talk about leader or leadership. The issue is and will be the economy. The talk about leader with integrity didn’t work the last time. NDP should look at the issues that hurt Vincentians and beat them like a road-march.
    The other point is Camillo is not a threat to the NDP. He is a threat to the ULP leadership hopefuls. The war begins the day he steps off the plane. There is still time to get candidates from both parties to form a united party, where people will respect others and work for a united society. Ralph has divided and destroyed the entire island’s population with family, friends and neighbours fighting against each other.

  12. DOES THE SVG CONSTITUTION allow a U.S.-born, U.S.-CITIZEN to hold political office as a MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT ? Or, is/has the US-born US CITIZEN Undiplomatic ‘diplomat’ at some time ACQUIRED SVG CITIZENSHIP ? If the latter is so, then could someone in a position to know LET THE GOOD PEOPLE OF SVG KNOW WHEN THIS WAS DONE ?

    Has the US BORN, US CITIZEN, AMERICAN, wannabee candidate APPLIED FOR NATURALIZATION AS A SVG CITIZEN ? Has the Baby dipper become a NATURALIZED CITIZEN OF SVG ????!!!

    And, if this highly favoured AMERICAN, US BORN, US CITIZEN, whose pappy Mr. JONATHAN PETERS claimed was BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN HIS MOUTH, has NOT applied for AND been NATURALIZED AS A SVG CITIZEN – – – haven’t the CONSTITUTION and LAWS OF SVG been VIOLATED, CIRCUMVENTED, AND INFRINGED ?

    That is, would it then be ILLEGAL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, and FRAUDULENT so such a US-born US-CITIZEN to hold the OFFICE OF HEAD OF THE U.N. MISSION and U.N. AMBASSADOR of SVG and the SVG GOVERNMENT?

    Or, do we have in SVG one-man, dictatorial, UNLAWFUL, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, over-rule of an unfettered contemporary SLAVE-MASTER ? An illegitimate regime? No authority to rule ?

    After all, people with diplomatic prowess and political acument FULLY KNOW that we operate on the principle of
    THE RULE OF LAW in SVG.

    FORWARD SVG, not BACKWARD.

    Let the LAWS and CONSTITUTION of SVG be respected and obeyed.

    ETERNAL VIGILANCE, my SVG brethren, IS THE PRICE OF OUR NATIONAL FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE.

    To hell with communism. DOWN WITH dishonest, crooked, corrupt “socialist orientation”.

    SAY NO TO MARXISM-LENINISM COMMUNISTS, of the FAILED, BACKWARD russian soviet strain.

    High time for the international courts to investigate and prosecute the power-mad dictators.

    CUBANS, GO HOME !

  15. LOL n SMH@AHA

    Is there an ECHO on this BLOG?

    I heard that TALK back in 2010 that the ULP will LOSE the GENERAL ELECTIONS BIG TIME.

    There is no way the ULP is going to lose GENERAL ELECTIONS as long as ARNHIM EUSTACE is the LEADER of the NDP.

    He has already lost three general elections as LEADER of the NDP and he will LOSE another if he is still the LEADER in 2015.

    That said; it still does not MATTER who is the LEADER of the NDP in 2012 because the NDP will still LOSE because they have NO VISION for the DEVELOPMENT and FORWARD PROGRESS of SVG…all the NDP good for is making NOISE and resorting to NEGATIVITY.

    You never hear anything POSITIVE or PROGRESSIVE coming from that PARTY and their SUPPORTERS. All you have to do is READ the POSTS of the NDP SUPPORTERS on this SITE and U will see what I am talking about as it relates to the NDP.

    The IGNORANCE and NEGATIVITY that come from these BLOGGERS are SYMPTOMATIC of what is WRONG with the NDP, because they are just MIMICKING the PERSONALITIES and CULTURE of that WORTHLESS PARTY.

  16. POWA, what could be more ‘WUTHLISS’ THAN RAPE ?

    You must surely be BLIND, DEAF, AND DUMB – – – NDP’s Arnhim EUSTACE WON HIS FIRST THREE ELECTIONS. Your idol, the COPYCAT, BADLY LOST HIS FIRST THREE ELECTIONS, often coming in third. He was not able to even gain a mere foothold seat, after some twenty or more years of political agitation, indoctrination, infiltration, subversion, and dissembling.

    A newcomer non-politician came in and whip him into 3rd place. That newcomer proclaimed that the COPYCAT was born with a silver spoon in he mouth. A hopeless case.

    IF commie ralphie was not RESCUED BY HIS HATED “COCO-NUT” NEMESIS, Vincent, then he would be wandering hopelessly in the political wilderness all now. GET YOUR BASIC HISTORY STRAIGHT, for once.

    What you mean by “progressive” — do you mean the socialists’ COMMUNISM? The copycat say he ah christian now, yuh know? He can no longer be both. And, if he is still ‘socialist’ but no longer communist [pobre hugo, pobre castro], but now additionally “religious” – – – that would make him AS FASCIST AS JIM JONES and THE PEOPLES’ TEMPLE CULT.

    Are you confessing to us that you modus operandi is to MIMIC THE COPYCAT comrade? pobre VINCYPOWA.

    Posted by STEVE_ HUGGINS | May 22, 2012, 23:35
  17. STEVE_HUGGINS, my FACTS are always STRAIGHT.

    FACT: James Mitchell created that East Kingstown seat for Arnhim Eustace through gerrymandering.

    FACT: James Mitchell handpicked Eustace to replace him as PM of SVG and LEADER of the NDP. In other words, Eustace became a leader by selection, not election, which is why he has never ever led his party to victory in a general election, because he is not a NATURAL LEADER. He doesn’t INSPIRE anyone. Moreover, he doesn’t have the NATURAL QUALITIES of a LEADER.

    As leader of a mass political party, Arnhim Eustace led the NDP to THREE CONSECUTIVE general elections DEFEAT against the Ralph Gonsalves’ led ULP.

    FACT: None of Eustace’s PREDICTIONS of PRESSURING the ULP GOVERNMENT to go back to the polls after a HUMILIATING DEFEAT in the general elections have bear fruit. Humiliating because they’re predicting only Dr. Gonsalves would win his seat. In other words, the NDP was going to defeat the ULP 14 -1, thus forming government.

    That said; I will leave you with a few QUOTES about being a LEADER. Let us see which one of our leaders, Dr. Gonsalves or Mr. Eustace fits the DESCRIPTION.

    “If an individual wants to be a leader and isn’t controversial, that means he never stood for anything” – Richard M. Nixon
    Well, we know who NEVER STOOD for ANYTHING and who has STOOD for SOMETHING.

    “The ear of the leader must ring with the voices of the people” – Woodrow Wilson

    1. Education REVOLUTION

    2. Dramatic DECREASE of INDIGENT POOR from about 27% to under 2%

    3. So-called “POOR RELIEF” increase from $50.00 under the NDP to over $220.00 under this ULP government.

    4. No INCOME, LOW INCOME and MIDDLE INCOME HOUSES

    We know whose ears are RINGING with the VOICES of the PEOPLE.

    “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” – John C. Maxwell

    Dr. Gonsalves without a SHADOW of a DOUBT

    “Somebody has to take responsibility for being a leader.” – Toni Morrison

    Dr. Gonsalves without a SHADOW of a DOUBT

    “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams

    Dr. Gonsalves without a SHADOW of a DOUBT. Dr. Gonsalves told the youths of this BLESSED LAND to SORE with their WINGS UNCLIPPED and we have seen this take shape throughout SVG. What has Eustace done to make people aspire to dream more, learn more, do more and become more? Absolutely NOTHING!!!

    “The task of the leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been.” – Henry A. Kissinger

    Nurses, student, police officers, other civil servants, ordinary folks, etc. have taken advantage of the policies of this government and now their lives are transforming to bigger and better things.

    “A leader does not deserve the name unless he is willing occasionally to stand alone.” – Henry A. Kissinger

    Who said, what would AMERICA SAY? Who said what would the World Bank and the IMF say? Whoever that person is, we know he is not a LEADER of a SOVEREIGN NATION. Frankly, that individual sounds downright PITIFUL.

    “The leader must aim high, see big, judge widely, thus setting himself apart form the ordinary people who debate in narrow confines.” – Charles de Gaulle

    Obviously, this is Dr. Gonsalves without a SHADOW of a DOUBT. The EDUCATION REVOLUTION, the ARGYLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, the NEW CITY at ARNOS VALE, the NATIONAL STADIUM, the CROSS COUNTRY ROAD, the RABACCA BRIDGE, the TUNNEL through Cane Garden, The JETPORT at CANOUAN, etc.

    “First of all, I can’t forget my first responsibility – which is to be the Leader of the Opposition and that’s to provide an alternative government.” – Stephen Harper

    Again, this is Dr. Gonsalves. With only 3 elected members, the then newly created POLITICAL PARTY put PRESSURE on the then NDP GOVERNMENT like no other POLITICAL PARTY has ever done before in the HOUSE of PARLIAMENT. Dr. Gonsalves of course being the TOUR DE FORCE IN and OUT of the HOUSE of Parliament. Moreover, the ULP had an ALTERNATE PLAN to GOVERN this COUNTRY and we saw them EXECUTED it, and CONTINUE to do so, when they FORMED GOVERNMENT in 2001.

    “I am a leader. Leaders always get heat. They’re always going against the grain. Jimi Hendrix got heat; Bob Marley got heat; Miles Davis got heat. Every great artist got heat. Heat means you’re doing something right.” – Ziggy Marley

    Dr. Gonsalves is OBVIOUSLY doing something right, because no one gets more HEAT that him.

    “If the leader is filled with high ambition and if he pursues his aims with audacity and strength of will, he will reach them in spite of all obstacles.” – Karl Von Clausewitz

    Very PROFOUND WORDS, because it DESCRIBES Dr. Gonsalves to the LETTER.

    “A leader must have the courage to act against an expert’s advice.” – James Callaghan

    We know Mr. Eustace is too much of a COWARDICE and a FOLLOWER to act against an expert’s advice. His what would the World Bank and the IMF say is a classic example of his PARALYSIS when decisive action has to be taken.

    “To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn’t know where he is going.” – Joe Namath

    I would follow Dr. Gonsalves a billion times before I follow Mr. Eustace one time.

    In closing, no matter how you SLICE it, when it comes to being a LEADER or LEADERSHIP, Dr. Gonsalves is MILES ahead of Mr. Eustace.

  18. COULD THE MINORITY GOVERNMENT IN SVG please correctly, properly, and honestly, inform the Sovereign PEOPLE OF SVG, whether its surprising appointee as AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS, and head of our UN MISSION is NOT A LEGALLY NATURALISED CITIZEN OF SVG, but, rather, a U.S.-BORN, U.S. CITIZEN ?

    WOULD this situation not be UNTENABLE FOR ANY SELF-RESPECTING NATION – STATE, if true ?

    Will the full penalties/sanctions of the law be applied in such a case ?

    If the person has applied and/or been granted NATURALIZATION, could you tell us the applicable date(s) ?

    HOW LONG IS THIS INEPT ‘SOCIALIST ORIENTATION’ DUPLICITOUS REGIME GOING TO INSULT AND DENIGRATE THE PEOPLE, CONSTITUTION, AND LAWS OF THIS ONCE BLESSED LAND ?

    IN THE NAME OF TRANSPARENCY and GOOD GOVERNANCE, the PEOPLE OF SVG deserve a respectable response. This country, last time that I checked, was NOT WILLED TO ANY ONE-MAN DICTATORSHIP and his grovelling political cronies.

    LET THE RULE OF LAW REIGN SUPREME IN SVG. Not illegitimate, MINORITY, corrupt communist regimes.

  22. Vincypowa.
    If you’re on the take say that you’re on the take. But to say that Gonsalves decrease poverty in ST Vincent is nothing but a farse. Do you see the state of SVG???. it is not even up for debate, the man is the worst prime minister SVG ever had. He put us in the most debt and destroyed the middle class, banana is all but on death’s door. ST Vincent is the only place that i have ever saw that people speak out against the opposition more than the government.

    Do you know what the job of the opposition is?? The opposition is the only ones that can keep the government in check and speak on our behalf and argue our plights. Eustace is a man of principle and a Vincentian like you and me, he is an economist and knows far more than the PM about how to fix an economy. The PM got us into this mess, and it’s Eustace that is going to have to get us out.

    And all the progress you are talking about, it is going to take about 15 years to get our country back to the level that is was back in 1998. 1.5 billion dollars of the on the back of 110,000 people. Every man woman and child would have a person debt of $13250 dollars on them thanks to de Komrade.

    As a man who owns a small business, i can assure that if i do not properly manage my expenses that my business would go under. The PM was born with a golden spoon, and some basics things that would be common sense to some is alien to the man’s mind. Seeing your nonsense post about the man use to be amusing, but when Vincentians are commiting suicide because of pressure, emergency services phone cutting off, emergencies being told in the hospital to sit down and wait, the disaster of the NIS, Millenium bank, million dollars crocos bag, rape(charged twice), your post are just now plain rediculous.

    Any body else would have resigned for just one of those scandals, but the man doesn’t have any shame so he just ignore them. And don’t forget that he is just one Vincentian and thousands are feeling the pressure for what he did. Even if he was my own family member i would tell the man to resign. So just relax with your nonsense, all you are doing is showing that you are only looking out for your interest and no one else in SVG.

    • BLANE, Eustace’s SOLUTION to FIX the ECONOMY is to LAY OFF PUBLIC SERVANTS and SELL VINCENTIAN PASSPORTS to UNSCRUPULOUS FOREIGNERS.
      That SAID; FEEL FREE to SHOW us an article that Eustace, the ECONOMIST, has WRITTEN on the GLOBAL FINANCIAL MARKETS or the GLOBAL ECONOMIC DOWNTURN.

      Eustace is a BOOKEEPER/ACCOUNT from the OLD DAYS.

      Eustace the ECONOMIST is the SAME MAN who gave FOREIGN BANKS over 19 MILLION DOLLARS of our TAXPAYERS MONIES on a PROJECT that only VALUED at some 6 to 10 MILLION DOLLARS. He would have given some 45 MILLION DOLLARS to those same FOREIGN BANKS if the WISE people of this nation did not elect the ULP to GOVERN.

      It was Ralph Gonsalves who STOPPED the payments when he told the foreigners he was not PAYING A CENT more for the OTTLEY HALL PROJECT.

      This 200 MILLION DOLLAR OTTLEY HALL PROJECT, which was only valued at some 6 to 10 millon dollars, is a REMINDER of the MANY BLUNDERS by the NDP and EUSTACE. He was the FINANCIAL ADVISER and then the MINISTER of FINANCE in the then NDP GOVERNMENT.

      Eustace is the ECONOMIST who made MONGOL SINGH gets DOUBLE MORTGAGES on the FAILED COLONIAL HOMES PROJECT at DIAMOND. This was Eustace’s first BIG PROJECT as PM and it was a DISMAL FAILURE.

      Moreover, I have NEVER EVER SEEN Eustace WRITTEN anything PERTAINING to ECONOMICS in the past 12 YEARS, nor have I heard of any FINANCIAL or GOVERNMENTAL INSTITUTION INVITING him as a FEATURED SPEAKING on anything to do with ECONOMICS, but he is supposedly this GREAT ECONOMIST, according to the DIEHARD SUPPORTERS of the NDP. LOL LOL LOL LOL

      BLANE, tell us EUSTACE’S ECONOMIC PLAN to MOVE THIS NATION FORWARD if by some MIRACLE of SATAN the NDP gets into OFFICE.

      That said; it is EUSTACE who was born with a GOLDEN SPOON in the HIS MOUTH. This is the same EUSTACE who once said that HE DID NOT KNOW there was SO MUCH POVERTY in SVG. This revelation came to Eustace when he was RUNNING for OFFICE back in the 1990’s under an NDP GOVERNMENT.

      Imagine this fella lives in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and did not know there was so much POVERTY in the COUNTRY. That is all you need to know about the PRIVILEGE LIFE Eustace was LIVING. He NEVER MINGLED With the POOR and so he knew nothing about POVERTY in the COUNTRY unlike Dr. Gonsalves.

      In other words, Eustace is only concerned about the WELL-TO-DO people in our BLESSED LAND. He doesn’t CARE about POOR PEOPLE. He only uses them to get their votes, because the RECORD will show that when it comes to the POOR, this ULP GOVERNMENT has done way more for the poor, while the NDP has done way more for the PRIVILEGE GROUPS in our SOCIETY.

      When talking about POLICIES and PLANS that have AIDED the POOR of this LAND, there is only one party that has an EXCELLENT RECORD in this REGARD and that is the ULP, PERIOD.

  23. STEVE_HUGGINS, instead of TAKING FART, why not READ the CONSTITUTION. It would have SAVED you the EMBARRASSMENT of SHOWING the WORLD the IGNORANCE that one can EXPECT from the SUPPORTERS of the LEADERLESS and INEPT NDP.

    This is what the CONSTITUTION says:

    “Persons born outside Saint Vincent on or after 27th October 1979.

    92. A person born outside Saint Vincent after the commencement of this Constitution shall become a citizen at the date of his birth if, at that date, his father or mother is a citizen otherwise than by virtue of this section or section 90(3) of this Constitution.”

    In other words, Camillo Gonsalves is automatically a citizen of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, because his father, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, is a citizen of this blessed nation.

    It is no wonder Eustace and the NDP were able to PUT the WOOL over your EYES, because they know U WERE IGNORANT and so was EASY to be MANIPULATED. That was why the NDP was able to tell its supporters that if they VOTE YES for the then PROPOSED CONSTITUTION they would have been unable to travel to Canada without a visa.

    Of course, that and the other BLATANT LIES did not stop you from supporting the NO VOTE in the REFERENDUM. It persons like you and the others that stymied progress in this blessed nation, because you rather listen to rum shop talk, scaremongering and propaganda from the NDP on a daily.

    In other words, your mind is so contaminated with negative that whenever good or positive things happen in this country, you do not know how to acknowledge it or accept it.

    By the way, I am sure that you’re one of those NDPITES who thought that the NDP won the general elections when the NO VOTE won the referendum and so went to Kingstown harassing civil servants and other public servants deemed to be supporters of the ULP. lol lol lol lol

    It is just SAD how the NDP continues to MANIPULATE you and their other DIEHARD supporters.

    • Is this the OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT RESPONSE to these serious issues that I highlighted as a CONCERNED VINCENTIAN?

      Are you the official spokesman for the COPYCAT communist, now, VINCYPOWA?

      I brought a CONSTITUTIONAL AND LEGAL ANOMALY TO THEIR ATTENTION, AS A NATIONAL, AND THEY SEND ME AN INTEMPERATE, BLEETING, MENDICANT MESSAGER.

      Is this the BEST that this illegitimate, MINORITY, regime could do?

      I re-iterate: Is this the official COPYCAT COMMUNIST response ?

  24. The name Donkey was first introduced by VINCYPOWA, he led me into using that name.

  25. RIC, respect must be earnt, a man that has been accused on 5 occassions of sexual crimes and as of yet never appeared before a court, a man that is a known and confessed liar, certainly will get no respect from most decent minded people.

    I am surprised you have not spoken up about all the other names he has been called. The Tree Headed Monster, CopyCat Communist, Dr. Urine, Pinocchio, Red Rat, Red Ralph, Comrade Ralph, Liar King, Walt Disney, Little Red Dwarf, Ra..rman, Marxist Scum Bag, Donkey Dung, Hugginson Kissinger.
    At least one of these can be attributed to the DPP Colin Williams.

    • PETER, when you said a CONFESSED LIAR, I believe you misspoke. You actually meant to say Arnhim Eustace.

      This is the so-called LEADER of the OPPOSITION who said that the CANDLELIGHT MARCH the NDP had on POVERTY was actually a MARCH to DEMONSTRATE to the PRESIDENT of TAIWAN the STRENGTH of the NDP and to FORCE HIM not to give this COUNTRY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE to BUILD the INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT at ARGYLE. Yes, the same AIRPORT that he deemed to be a PHANTOM PROJECT, but then turned around at the BEWITCHING HOUR of the 2010 general elections that his party would COMPLETE.

      So yes, we can POINT FACTUALLY and DIRECTLY to something that EUSTACE LIED to this NATION about. Can you do the same with Dr. Gonsalves?

  26. Another two names I have found added.

    Hurricane Gonsalves, Cowardy Custard, The Three Headed Monster, CopyCat Communist, Dr. Urine, Pinocchio, Red Rat, Red Ralph, Comrade Ralph, Liar King, Walt Disney, Little Red Dwarf, Ra..rman, Marxist Scum Bag, Donkey Dung, Hugginson Kissinger.

    At least one of these can be attributed to the DPP Colin Williams. If you can guess which one, you will recieve a browney point or a whitey point, depending on your attitude.

    Remember its not the colour of your skin that make you a black man, its your attitude. Don’t blame me for that, its a Gonsalves saying.

  27. GONSALVES SAID WITH HIS VERY OWN MOUTH “I SOMETIMES TELL LIES”. THAT MAKES HIM A SELF CONFESSED LIAR, ITS HIS OWN WORDS AND HIS OWN CONFESSION, AND THATS WITHOUT A POLICE BEATING.

    HE NOT ONLY TELLS LIES, BUT HE PUTS PEN TO PAPER SUPPORTING LIES.

    Posted by Peter | May 28, 2012, 20:28
  28. 5 STATEMENTS OF COMPLAINT FROM WOMEN, 2 OF THOSE WOMEN CHARGED GONSALVES WITH SEXUAL ACTS.

    ALL CHUCKED OUT BY COLIN WILLIAM THE DPP. GONSALVES NEVER BEEN TO COURT TO FIGHT ANY ONE OF THOSE ACCUSATIONS.

    HOW COME GONSALVES HASN’T SUED ANY ONE OF THE 5 ACCUSERS FOR TELLING LIES ON HIM?

    THE WORLD WAS TOLD THAT GONSALVES WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY, THAT WAS AN INTERNATIONAL LIE.

  29. ALL leave POWA alone. The Guy is one of the biggest A** I have come across for a long time. I have never read more unsubstantiated sh*t ….. He is the product of the ULP pit-latrine mentality. This Guy simply make no sense. So please don’t waste time with this “Askhole”

  30. It amazes me how the SCL had trained those IDIOTS to use a simple phrase, word or clause and put a spin on them to mean something else that is definitely far from the truth. LUCKLY, VINCENTIANS ARE STILL INTELLIGENT!!
