  1. Just watch the hate and spite that flows from the top ULP government members. The Marxist machinary will go into overdrive in attempts to try and destroy this womans good name.

    It will be obvious to the ULP and the NDP, that if Anesia gets these kind of tributes she will take some votes from both leading parties if she runs her new political party at the time of elections.

    Anesia, beware the ULP spite machine.

  2. Regardless of what spin the ULP leaders will try and put on Anesia’s religeous beliefs, it comes no where near Gonsalves admittance and declaration in parliament that if he works, obeah, “he works Obeah for the Lord”

    I also doubt very much that she will ever need to tell us she sometimes tells lies, rremember that is what the PM Gonsalves told us, he sometimes tells lies.

  3. I very much doubt that we will ever hear of Anesia Baptiste being accused wrongly or rightly, directly or indirectly in graft, bribery, corruption, rape, sexual assault, nasty name calling, indecent gestures, spite, hatred, lies, being a pathological liar, paedophilia, untrue innuendos‘, paganism, having undue control of the Judiciary, Marxism, Leninism, communism, narcissism, nepotism, abuse of position, toxic leadership.

  5. Anesia needs to decide whether she wants to be a politician or a preacher. It is my contention that she really wants to be the former;but feels conflicted to throw her Thusian peoples under the bus…I truly believe if Anesia is to throw the crazy man in TNT and the whole Thusian Institute under the bus, she will be a force to be reckon with in SVG politics for a long time. Let me say for the record, I am not advocating that Anesia abandon her personal religious beliefs…but her Taliban evangelizing, will have to be purged from her public deliberations and political leanings.

    Keep with this personal development and learning. We need our best and brightest prospects for the future development of SVG. SVG, needs the likes of Anesia Baptiste, the Scholar, Community Organizer, the POLITICIAN.

  6. TEACHERFANG, your spot on, because of Anesia’s beliefs that appear to the public to be fanatical, and the espousing of the same, makes her unelectable. If she concentrated on politics and kept her religious beliefs to herself, family and friends, I would probably vote for her.

    She would certainly give the Marxist’s a run for their Co-operative dividends [money].

    But then again when Gonsalves told us he “I only work Obeah for the Lord” he should also be unelectable. I am sure at some time in the future he will try and deny he ever said that in parliament, but I heard him say it myself. Then of course Gonsalves also has a number of other things he said which should exclude him from being prime minister, or any other kind of minister.

    “I only work Obeah for the Lord”

    “I sometimes tell lies”

    “Show me a liar and I will show you a thief”

    “I am here to finish the work of Maurice Bishop”

    “We will hunt them down until they exist no more”
