After reading this bill for myself, it is very confusing and if passed it would put the Speaker of the House, Jomo Thomas, under extreme pressure. So, Iâm making a plea to Dr Gonsalves to stop, think and listen to Mr Campbellâs position on this bill; his advice is golden; let his experience guide you. This bill shows that you are frustrated by the NDP and it also shows you are searching for a way out. Some questions for Dr Gonsalves: Do you think Mr Campbellâs advice is misleading? Passing this bill will stifle democracy. Do you want Vincentians to think that you are abusing your authority as leader of the House of Assembly? Who has more influence on you? QC Parnell Campbell or Frank Da Silva?
Prime Minister Dr Gonsalves, donât be misguided by persons like Frank Da Silva, Elson Crick and Noel Jackson. Listen to Vincentians who have your best interest at heart; listen to wise Vincentians.
Dr Gonsalves, QC Parnell Campbell is a very knowledgeable man when dealing with laws; Iâm of the impression that PR studied this bill and understands it for what itâs worth. He is someone you can trust, he has integrity and he cares for Vincentiansâ well-being and he shows it with his The Law and You programme, aired on SVG TV over the years. He is a man that every Vincentian trusts, a true people man, not like Frank Da Silva, who has expressed his view that QC Parnell Campbell doesnât know what he is talking about.
Frank, who are you kidding? Mr Da Silva has no sort of influence on Vincentians, nor in the political arena. He is a total waste of time; Iâm profoundly amazed by the selfishness of one man. Use your brain, Frank; listen to people who are wiser than you.
Dr Gonsalves, sit and try to remember what Frank Da Silva said about you when he supported the NDP. So, why today when you donât need him, is he trying to impress you?
St Vincent needs persons that have its best interest at heart like Jomo Thomas, Renwick Rose, Blazer Williams, QC Parnell Campbell, Dr R Thomas, Dr Ferdinand, Stephen Joachim and Monty Maule, who are all full of impartiality when dealing with St Vincent and the Grenadines. Donât make a few loud mouth persons who call in on radio talk show programmes influence you, Doc. Remember this country should be your first priority as Prime Minister, and also remember that St Vincent belongs to all Vincentians.
As a Vincentian who desires to see our blessed nation develop, I am hoping that Vincentians can put their differences aside and focus on building our nation. We, as Vincentians, must remember that the simplest thing we do can affect the growth of our country. Sir James once said politics is like an in and out club. Dr Gonsalves, today you are in, so use the time wisely to put St Vincent and the Grenadines first. Be very sure about your decisions, because what we do can affect us in the future. You must be very mindful about what you do. Dr Gonsalves; continue to feed Frank with a long spoon, I gone!
