Sounds like fantasies of The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland

Editor: We’ve all read, or had read to us, the fantasies of The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, where imaginary or self-presumptive powers exercise absolute authority. Now we have a recitation by a ULP candidate for Parliament, “There will be hundreds of jobs…” from “an investor we are in negotiations with.”{{more}}

If I were a major hotel chain, or a group of investors seeking to open a hotel/resort on the Leeward side of St Vincent, after doing due diligence on the prospects of profitability for such a venture, would I care if the two-bit tin-horn self absorbed would-be tyrant I am talking to about this deal might soon be voted out of office by a more fiscally responsible Opposition? No! I would be delighted at the prospect!

A new hotel/resort at Mt Wynne-Peter’s Hope, if such a prospect even exists, would sooner come to fruition under the auspices of an NDP administration, a Government more likely to shepherd such a project in a manner less involving under-the-table monies, and more likely in the long run to benefit both the investors and the citizens of St Vincent and the Grenadines. The implication that such a deal will only be realized after a ULP victory is not only ridiculous, it is insulting to common sense.
