NDP has not forgotten what took place in 2001

Editor: If anyone thinks that the New Democratic Party is not serious about carrying through a wide spread form of victimization if they win the up coming general elections then he/she needs to think again. Contrary to Mr. Eustace’s utterances against victimization he is not to be believed; it is all a fake.{{more}}

The pronouncements by the N.D.Ps’ candidates bear witness that this plan is part of their agenda even though they are trying to say otherwise. The voters in St. Vincent and the Grenadines must not be fooled; the N.D.P is very serious about firing people from their jobs.

Mr. Eustace has always said that the Public Service is too big. If that is so, only two things can happen. It is either he stops hiring workers or he sends workers home. None of these options is good policy for any government.

Mr. Linton Lewis who is seen as the one who wants to take the job from Mr. Eustace has complained that the police force is too big. We can therefore look forward for some police officers to be sent home and little or no hiring to be done.

In the 2005 general elections campaign Major Leacock made it plain at a public meeting on Sion Hill that the N.D.P would take care of its’ own if they had won the elections.

Again Major St. Clair Leacock seemed to be floating on the moon after a ‘victory’ in the November referendum, when he called the Commissioner of Police to inform him that he (Mr. Leacock) is likely to be the minister responsible for National Security and his (Keith Miller’s) job is up for questioning.

Mr. Burton Williams’ latest comments, “When we in government, I want you to understand parson say’ christen yuh pickney first. I looking after N.D.P supporters before I look after Labour Party supporter…,” is just the icing on the cake as to their intentions.

Mr. Eustace is quick to call for people to resign their offices for all kinds of reasons. Why is he not calling on Mr. Williams and St. Clair Leacock to resign from being candidates for the party he leads?

The N.D.P has not forgotten what took place in 2001. They are still angry and determined to make amends. Certainly if the New Democratic Party is to win these elections, the teachers, public Servants, policemen and women and nurses will feel the wrath of the N.D.P. The voters in St Vincent and the Grenadines must not allow the NDP to retard progress in this our blessed land.
